Pros: Ran ok but HOT at 5-5-5-11 @ 2.25 Volts 1110 MHz in an Asus Crosshair with AMD 64 5400+ X2 @ 3050 MHz and two XFX nVidia 8800GTS cards @ 3150 MHz. After 5 months of that, I cleared the CMOS setup to run them at a lower voltage and speed so the system wouldn't crash during the winter months. In the summer, I had an air conditioner blowing on the well ventilated side of my Cooler Master Stacker case and I added an extra fan to blow right on the memory modules. I kept my system well cleaned though but after lowering the voltage, the system wouldn't post.
Cons: They don't last very long. Thank Mushkin for the lifetime warranty and get rid of them while you still can.
Other Thoughts: I went with Crucial Ballistix DDR2 SLI compatible 2GB kit. They run at lower voltage, much, much cooler and very good timings, plus they look really cool with the reg/green activity LEDs and the blue LEDs along the base. I have them running at 4-4-3-8 @ 960 MHz and have an observable performance increase due to the lower timings.
