Pros: Solid RAM. It worked right out of the box: fit perfectly into the slots, and the motherboard recognized it immediately and at the proper speed with no advanced configuration or tweaking needed. I've been running this RAM for around 4 months now with no issues.

Cons: None, really. I've had no problems with it.

Other Thoughts: Before buying this RAM I used the tools at Crucial's website to make sure the RAM was fully compatible with my motherboard selection. Crucial's tool seemed more complete and useful than those I've seen on other RAM manufacturer's websites. They listed it as compatible with my motherboard and it worked correctly right out of the box.

My Setup:

MSI 970a-G46 Motherboard
nVidia GTX 760 GPU
8 GB (4x2)Crucial Ballistix Sport XT RAM
EVGA SuperNOVA NEX 750B 750 watt PSU

Pros: Works well right out of the box. Good read/write speeds. Excellent unit for the price.

Cons: None really, it works precisely as advertised.

Other Thoughts: Not too much to say about it. It's a solid unit, seems well made and installed perfectly. The read and write speeds are right where they should be, and the device worked perfectly right from the first time I hooked it up.

Pros: This is an outstanding card. Simple install, 3 big, quiet fans and an excellent heat sink design. The card stays cool even under heavy, prolonged use. It is quiet but I wouldn't call it extremely quiet. Certainly for the size and performance the noise level is very good, better than I expected.

Installed easily quickly and worked perfectly right out of the box. I get great FPS at high graphical settings in all of my games (MMOs, Assassin's Creed, some others. I haven't put it to test in FPS so I can't speak to that, but many other reviewers here have reported excellent performance in FPS games.

Cons: The only con I can list is the size. Not fair to lower the rating over it as the card dimensions are clearly marked, but if you have a smaller case you could run into some space issues. Depending on your motherboard layout cabling around this card in a smaller case can be slightly challenging if you're really pushing for optimal airflow. Mine was a mid-tower and while it definitely fit it was slightly tight and it did make cabling a little more challenging.

Other Thoughts: For the price you will be hard-pressed to top this card in performance.
