Good price
Small in size
I got one of those to run on an ASRock Extreme 3 and it runs perfect!

It's small in size, and 8 gb is big enough to run a single one.

There is no draw back on this thing!

cheap after PM
heat spread for better protection
This ram had great value for the price I paid. It runs at 1600MHz, and has a heat spread over the chips. I got this ram for $35 after PM in early January. I wish I have bought more of it because of today's surging ram price.

Good overclocker for a budget 8GB module. Does 1866MHz 9-9-9-27-2T at default voltage. *Update* 2079 MHz 8-10-10-28-2T at 1.65V on new z87 board.
I doesn't do 2400MHz?
I bought a pair of these to replace a Kingston 16GB 1600MHz CAS10 kit. I The Kingston could tighten the timings to 9-9-9-27-1T, but thats it... albeit expected as higher density modules aren't known for their overclockability (thus looser stock timings on most). Crucial already comes spec'd at CAS9, so I immediately shot for 1866. It was Memtest stable, but not prime stable until I went from 9-9-9-27-1T to 9-9-9-27-2T. Trying to tighten the timings further, or increasing the frequency further, even with extra voltage on the DRAM and the VCCIO, was a no-go.
Crucial doesn't seem to bin their modules as much as some brands do. After all, they do make the chips themselves. So I've found over the years their budget modules out-overclock other budget modules. This RAM just again confirms this.

*Jun 2013 Update*

This RAM was being held back by the IMC in my 2500k. On haswell, these sticks soar. I could even bench for awhile above 2200 MHz (but it looked like I was going to have to go above 1.75V and significantly looser timings to stabilize... not something I was willing to do)

-has JEDEC to ddr3 2000mhz d CL11
-XMP ddr3 1600 CL9
-XMP ddr3 1333 CL8
-very low profile and easy to install looks nicer than the high profile ones
running 1 stick on a h61 motherboard and windows experience index is 7.1. default automatically set to 1333 and 1t. which is the maximum the chipset supports. using Pentium G860.
