Summary: While the ram drops in fine and runs fine using JEDEC settings, switching to XMP destabilizes my system, which should have no problem handling the speed boost. I will eventually replace this RAM with something faster (and functional) it works decently for regular use, and will be migrated to a...
Pros: -Works great at default speeds. -Install, boot, and play; no configuration needed. -System is stable and has plenty of headroom for applications.
Summary: I bought this RAM to upgrade my 2008 Sager NP5796 (Clevo M570TU). I originally bought my laptop with 4GB of RAM which was "good" back in 2008 but I recently replaced Vista 64bit Business Edition with Windows 7 Pro.
Pros: - Color scheme looks great - Easy to install and run at base clocks
Cons: Won't run at 3000 MHz with the timings listed. I'm running it in an Asus Z170 Pro Gaming series board, and with XMP enabled and custom setting the timings this DIMM is listed with, I get a boot up error that "Overclock has failed, Press F1 to enter setup" whenever I attempt to enable XMP. I've tr...
Pros: Solid XMP Profiles, high speeds for a solid price
Cons: Sometimes one of my sticks just isn't recognized when I boot into my system giving me only 12 GB of RAM but restarting a couple times usually fixes the issue. So I don't know if its a motherboard or a RAM thing, just felt that people should know it's happening. (Motherboard is Asus-X99 Pro with U...
Summary: Got this for a friend at the same time I got 16GB for my wife. The 16GB failed in way less than a month, so I'm reserving judgment on this 8GB. Both were easy to install. Whatever you do, DO NOT THROW AWAY YOUR ORIGINAL RAM! You might need it again.
Summary: Got this to upgrade my laptop from 4 to 8gb. While it did the job there, I started seeing pauses in laptop operation. Good quantity but not that good of quality. My original ram is much more efficient.
Summary: Installation was not a difficult task, and initial boot was flawless, running diagnostics showed full functionality of both boards, and my Hardware (2009 SONY VAIO PCG 61112L) recognized that it was 8 GB of Memory.
