No Probs So Far 6/1/2010 12:18:59 PM

Pros: Very nice memory! Unfortunately, I didn't know this was going into a 32-bit system, so I've only used up to 2.75 GB but still, not problems so far...good buy as far as my experience

Cons: The design is a little weird, the tall spikes (which I'm assuming are to dissipate heat) catch cables when I'm working in the case from time to time, but nothing serious.

Overall Review: Ha...right

Works, but not as advertised. 5/30/2010 11:02:45 PM

Pros: It works fine right now; then again, I'm not doing anything real intensive with it.

Cons: The timing, voltage, and clock speed was/is off. Not a big deal, it's simple to change and not entirely uncommon. But it won't change. I can change the voltage (it was at 1.5), but the clock speed won't go up (stuck at 1066) and the latency is, for whatever reason, stuck at 7-7-7-20. I would feel more comfortable having it at the suggested 9-9-9-24. Whenever I try and change it, the PC won't boot.

Overall Review: I never bothered checking the settings because I don't need to squeeze every ounce of power out of this computer. I just recently checked it out of curiosity, and I'm not thrilled that it's running at such a low clock speed.

But like I said, it's been running fine with what it's at, but that's probably because it's not being used for anything intense.

Good and stable 5/29/2010 3:44:52 PM

Pros: It's not the fastest, but it is fast and (more importantly for me) stable. Running 8GB with my Phenom II 955 Quad and a Geforce GTX260...plays games great and crunches through video editing quite nicely.

Cons: None that I can think of, for the $$$.

Fast, good price 5/22/2010 9:21:24 PM

Pros: Fast DDR3 1600 memory, fairly cheap. I just had to set the voltage to 1.8 volts instead of 1.5 and my ASUS motherboard took care of everything else.

Cons: You must set your voltage on your motherboard manually to 1.8 volts to get it to run at 1600

Overall Review: Buy it!

Happy 5/17/2010 11:17:38 PM

Pros: Purchased this ram primarily because it is low latency (CL7) DDR3 1600 Mhz whereas others are CL9. Last time I used Patriot ram was in a Shuttle SN25P system 4 years ago? That system was fast and reliable. I have since tried other manufacturers with limited luck (Crucial Ballastix, Kingston HyperX); those vendors ran good when not overclocked but did not overclock well with the motherboards I used.

I wanted to give Patriot a chance again and needless to say I am satisfied. I was skeptical the ram would run with the Intel motherboard (DP55KG) and successfully overclock but I was wrong there too. System has been perfectly stable from Day #1 and is extremely snappy. I plan on buying another pair to populate the system to 8GB.

Ram is warm to the touch needing no additional cooling.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: System specifications:

Core i7 860
Intel DP55KG
Gigabyte ATI 5850

Coming back for more 3/20/2010 6:13:17 PM

Pros: Running ASUS M4A78T-E With AMD Phenom II 550. From all that I could find this was the best memory for this board/CPU combo. 1 year in and no problems. I am buying another 4GB to make the move to Win 7 64 bit.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: I am feeding this with a PCP&C 700 watt PSU. I really think good clean power makes the difference, function and longevity.

Good enough. 11/29/2009 8:15:09 PM

Pros: Fast, gets the job done. Cooling appears to function properly.
System doesn't crash while performing burnin testing. (yay?)

Cons: Heatsinks interfere with the Thermaltake CLP0539
I did not want to alter the Heatsink to get seamless interaction, nor was there any other intelligent alternate method of installing the CPU fan.
Not on Asus' Vendor Qualified list, oh well. Works fine, I suppose.

Overall Review: Aside from the Mobo vertical realestate issue, I can only pin down my system problems to being either in my memory of that my HDDs are dying. All S.M.A.R.T. analysis point to the memory having an issue. Most possibly an incompatibility.
Only an issue on one system out of a twin system build. Passes MemTest86 flying colors.

Not a problem for me 10/29/2009 6:06:13 AM

Pros: Personally I think this is great memory as I have had no problems with it what so ever.
It does exactly what it is supposed to do and it runs very cool while doing it.
If anyone is having any problems with this memory maybe it is because their motherboard isn't so great.

Cons: None that I know of.
Except for the fact that Newegg raised the price.

Overall Review: The heat sinks on these are extremely efficient and well designed.
