Pros: Just updated my Mac Pro 2.66GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon "Nehalem" 3500 series processor (3rd generation- early 2009). Must say so far this RAM is GREAT! I love the fact that Heat Spreaders are included as well as a lifetime warranty! So far very pleased and what an incredible price!
Cons: Just wish I could purchase (1) 2GB DIM to fill the empty fourth slot in Mac Pro so I could have 8GB instead of 6GB but I guess Patriot only sells in package of 3GB of 6GB.
Overall Review: Installation was very simple and the bright blue looks RAM looks fantastic inside of Mac Pro case!
Pros: Compatible with new Dell Studio XPS 435
Cons: Lower speed DDR3
Overall Review: Just got it and installed it quickly so now I have 9Gb of Ram.
Runs well so far with the new Dell Studio XPS 435.
Will wait to see how it performs before upgrading the other 3 RAM chips since it's Triple channel so 3 is needed!
Ram prices is slowly going up but hoping that it'll level off or drop somewhat later!
Pros: Works wonders with the i7 processor and vista. Outstanding heat shield, good for a gaming computer... Best ram i have put in my computer yet.
Cons: Can't think of one.
Pros: Fast, nice color heat sheild, cheaper than the other "faster" RAMs
Cons: Nothing is idiot proof
Overall Review: Intel only supports 1066, so why pay more?
Had to install a driver before windows 7 recognized all 6gb (new build)
Make sure your MOBO is compatible with any RAM u buy!!
Pros: Great stuff for a good price! I'm running a Gateway FX6800 with this RAM. I'm now able to run all of my games at the highest settings with no trouble.
Cons: None that i've found yet.
Overall Review: I'm happy with my purchase, and thinking about buying more for my other desktop.
Newegg was great and fast.
Pros: I wanted to make an non-overclocked silent i7 rig. So I needed low latency, low-voltage RAM. This fit the bill perfectly. Purchased two of these kits and all 12GB of RAM were recognized and utilized immediately. I have been running Ubuntu with Windows in a VM for two months with no problems, no crashes.
Overall Review: For the price and the speed, it's hard to go wrong with this.
Pros: Reasonable price.
Heat spreaders versus competition at similar price points didn't have them.
Lifetime warranty, though this is almost standard for memory today.
No freight charge (why is it called "shipping" when there is not shipping involved from Newegg to purchaser?).
Confidence in knowing it would work with my system, Gateway FX6800-01e.
Cons: Price has come down since I purchased.
Overall Review: I expect to get great use of the 9 GB I now have in my system. I will be running Windows 7, Server 2008 R2, and a number of virtual machines.
Pros: Works flawlessly.
Cons: Slow speed does not justify the sudden increase by 70% over the last two months. Why settle for PC-8500 when you can 10666 cheaper?
Overall Review: When this was almost 40% cheaper, it made sense for the budget minded to get. Now the price is absurd when you compare to other faster memory.
I was coming back to Newegg to get another 6 gig for "matching" memory. I was priced out of my budget.
Even so, the memory scored a 7.4 on Windows 7 performance rating, which is darn good.
