Very Good RAM 1 Exception
1 week ago
Summary: Excellent RAM for gaming and is very stable. Works okay for video editing but 16+ GB of RAM would be better. The only downside so far is that I had to overclock the RAM to 1600MHz in the BIOS. Other than that it has worked great!
So far this ram has been great. Installed easily and system didn't have a problem ...

Summary: So far this ram has been great. Installed easily and system didn't have a problem with it. My only gripe is that it's advertised as 1600 mhz but with stock bios my bios and cpu-z both say it's running at 1333 mhz.
Summary: Even at up to 1.65v I can't get it to run any higher than 1600 or get it to run at a 1T command rate (even at 1333). Finally after hours of removing my graphics card and clearing my cmos. I finally settled with 1333 7-7-7-20-26-2T 1.5v (which is the spd for 1066).
Pros: Reliable Brand Low Profile Looks Good (especially on Asrock 970M Pro 3) Will underclock like mad! ;)
Cons: Does not like to overclock 2T command rate!!! XMP profile (for running at 1600) has very loose sub timings
Summary: Fits in nicely with my blue/black theme, works just as needed. Before I built my build, I took this RAM to school and put it one of those cheap school computers, and it make the whole thing a ton faster. Logged in fast, and played Minecraft very well xD.
Summary: After installing check your BIOS and make sure it is running at 1600MHz. Mine was running at 1333MHz, but that's easy to change in the BIOS.
Pros: I've had this RAM since 2012 and I haven't had any issues. The low profile really does help with large CPU coolers. My RAM was running a bit hot, so make sure you have adequate airflow in your system. It's been running well for the past 2+ years, hopefully it will keep on running well for much lo...
Cons: It seems that it's become a bit pricy, but most RAM has. I believe I got mine for around $70.0 USD around 2 years ago.
Summary: bought this to pair with an amd llan cpu/gpu used for approx 3 moths with no video card and ram speed was high enough that most games performed well on medium settings, ended up buying stand alone radeon 6990 and this ram fit underneath that massive card which is a huge plus as most modern heatsinks...
Pros: low profile fits under Radeon 6990 in small case, high clock speed 1600, stays very cool,
Cons: docked one egg do to having to manually set clock speed on foxcoon motherboard paired with amd llano cpu no auto detection.
Summary: All is testing out OK on my new build, with only one wrinkle; my mobo identifying these 1600 MHz rated ram chips as running at 1333 MHz. A slight overclocking adjustment and they are running fine again at 1600 MHz.
