Pros: The low profile nature of the ram means that there's no potential for it to hit my huge heat sink that I use for the processor.
Cons: I can only get this ram to post @ 1866. Running at 1.55V or upping my NB ram voltage + 0.1V (AMD) doesn't help the matter. I may futz around with voltages more to get 2133 to work, but I bought 1.5V ram for the express purpose of not having to do voltage tweaking.
Summary: I bought these to fit my MSI motherboard, and the only issue I had was the mobo ran it up at 1600 Mhz, the RAM does not know the difference on its own. You have to go through the BIOS and manually change the MHz to 2133 :) Other than that, my computer is lightning fast!
Summary: I bought this set for my gaming computer build and never turned back. I like the blue as it matches my blue montage i got going on. the speed itself ill be honest i have no idea yet. I have yet to max these things out as far as i could tell.
