Cons Does not work with Haswell Asus motherboards, possibly others
Summary I had to RMA this memory because it was incompatible with my Asus Gryphon Haswell (Socket 1150) motherboard I purchased in June 2013. I never bothered to use the memory they sent me back, I just sold it. You get what you pay for!!! If I had just spent $20 more I would have saved myself hours of troubleshooting and countless headaches. Spend a bit more and get quality. Only buy this memory if your motherboard says it's certified to work with it.
Summary These kits work extremely well with overclocked 2600k on a Gigabyte z68xp-ud3-issd. The on sale price is fair altho it limited me to 1 kit. Called NCIX and they said they would help work something out.
Pros - WOW.. these were on suprise sale at 70$ only + 15$ Mail-Rebate, I jumped so fast on them as I replaced my Mushkin Silverline 2x4Gb DDR3-1333 for these at barrely more, I gain 800Mhz! - Most reliable brand and very good price/quality ratio usualy. I already had Redline for DDR2. - Ultra low timing considering the very high frequency. 9-9-9-24 to 9-11-10-28 to gain 800Mhz I'll say yes anyday lol.
Cons - Regular price - Not a cons but beware, other than requiring 1.65v to insure 100% stability, you'll prolly need to raise the mobo's chipset voltage from default 1.05v to 1.10v to work correctly.
Summary Windows Index went from 7.7 to 7.9 and would have prolly went above if it wasn't the maximum. Don't forget to set them at 1.65v for maximum stability. I set mine even a bit higher because I get like 0.020v of vdrop. At first it would often require 2 shot on a cold boot to work and I'd get errors and/or bsod within 6min of Prime95 on Blend only.. then I flashed my bios which I'm pretty sure did nothing but I also raised the (PCH1.05) voltage to 1.10v and now it's 100% stable. I read online that past DDR3-1833Mhz, mostly once you reach very high speeds like 2133Mhz you need to go a bit above the default chipset voltage to have it stable. Not a big deal but when you don't know it it can give you headaches!
Pros I've currently got the memory running at 2133Mhz with No mem test yest, but system boots and seems to run fine with 10-11-10-28 timings x1.5V. I wanted to see how tight the timings would go at 1.5V. Changing second/third timings I'm sure this memory could do more at 1.5V.
They feel cool temperature-wise too. I haven't really done anything other than browsing the internet though. Possibly a heavy load would affect the temperature.
Cons None so far (only running a few hours)
Summary So far pretty darn good! These were on sale for 78 and I've got a 15 dollar rebate to send in.
