Summary: - I did need to set the speed in BIOS to 1600 MHz, it defaulted to 1333 for me, but I didn't have any problems with it. - I've been playing modded Minecraft (200+ mods) with 8GB which has worked fine, but it's a resource hog.
Pros: -Works well -Low profile, fits under my Phanteks PH-TC14PE on my ASUS Z97-PRO motherboard with room to spare. -Great ram for the price
Cons: -Possible overheating from the low profile heatsink, but at default speed I haven't had a single problem.
Summary: I wanted to go LP in my ITX build in case I wanted to put in a bigger CPU fan at a later date. 8GB is the sweet spot for most computers, and Corsair is a reputable brand. Why buy this specific kit?
Another great Corsair product for height restricted memory slots.

Summary: I had two sticks of the Corsair Vengeance 4 GB with the huge blue heatspreaders. Unfortunately one of my two remaining slots is under my chip heatsink fan and they won't work. Removing the heatspreader looks risky.
