Summary: One of the sticks was defective from the factory. It's a bit of a bummer to have to RMA it right off the bat, but NCIX handled the RMA with finesse. Now that it's been replaced, it's working great.
Summary: Tested with memtest overnight came out with flying colors. XMP profile is as always easy to implement and booted without any issues on the first try. I wanted a large amount of memory space with good speed and at this sale price it was a bargain. Kingston have once again made an excellent memory backed with their warranty and support, not that I ever expect to need it before this RAM is old and archaic. I did not try to overclock it.
Pros: Big memory, fast, stable and great discount in this sale!
Summary: I am happy with the performance of this ram so far, and I have had no issues. Have not OC yet because I want to buy a cooler for it, I worry that my cases standard airflow may not be enough due to lack of surface area on the heatsink.
Summary: Bought this on sale at $85.00 and installed without problems. Only change was to set the memory to 1600 which was a very easy change. My build: Installed without problems, CPU recognized it immediatley. Now have 16GB of RAM. was worth the price when it was onsale. A few months now and no issues so Far.
