5/ 5

Pros: Great RAM, ran without issues. Could do more with OC but my processor can't take much more speed until I get a Phenom.

Cons: Was far more expensive when I got it, but prices have dropped for all RAM. I wish these were still around.

Will never buy OCZ

Pros: Very good performance

Cons: OCZ tech support sucks big time

Other Thoughts: When I got this pair of DRAM modules, I plugged them, cleared BIOS (no overclocking at all!), adjusted DRAM voltage, tested with MemTest86+ and saw memory errors. Then tested every module individually and found only one was faulty. Tried to increase timings a lot and decreasing frequency to a minimum but it didn't help. That's not good but this happens.

I wanted OCZ's advanced RMA to get a replacement ASAP so I opened a ticket with OCZ at 5AM PST with all the information I had and no one called me that day. I called them next morning and was told a technician would definitely call me but no one did. Meaning no one cared to do anything for 2 FULL business days.

So I went ahead with Newegg's RMA, put my parcel to a drop box, came home, and found an email from OCZ. And you know what? That guy asked things they were in the ticket like my CPU and motherboard and recommended troubleshooting steps I'd already performed and reported. Looked like he didn't even bother to read the ticket.

Manufacturer Response:
Hello, we are sorry for the problem. Our response email is pre-formatted to ask for specific details, as many customers do not provide them. We apologize for requesting duplicate info. We Also aplogize for the delay, as we may have been short staffed that week. An RMA through Newegg is the fastest RMA method when you have owned a product less than 30 days. Thank you

Needs higher voltage

Pros: Excellent price for 2x2GB
Runs at 1600 with some settings
Very stable when it boots
Runs fine at 1600MHz, 9-9-9-26 @1.67V

Cons: Did not boot Win7 Ultimate x64 at 10-10-10-24-27 @1.644V in a MSI 890GXM-G55, but expected to need at least 1.65V so it still gets 5 eggs.

Other Thoughts: Did not consistently POST or boot at 1.644V, but with 1.7V works fine at 1600. Have tested to 9-9-9-26 which is stable, will try lower settings and post another review if I turn up anything interesting, or if a stick burns out.
SPD gives timings for 1066MHz (7-7-7-16), will NOT boot at 1600 with stock SPD timings.
Running this alongside a 2GB stick of OCZ SpecOps DDR3-1600.
