Experience: 1 Years
Nice black heatsinks, Patriot warranty, good quality memory
This is a decent 16gb memory kit - nothing special - but it looks pretty nice, should be reliable, and is reasonably fast. Could have tighter timings. I've bought lots of Patriot memory and really never had a problem.

Experience: 3 Months

good quantity/price ratio. Compatible with NH-D14
I needed something that can fit under the NH-D14 with a good price. They where on special so I got them for a good price.

Experience: 14 Days

Good value, performs as promised
First time buying Patriot. Have done G. Skill, Corsair and OCZ way back when. On sale, seemed like good value, no issues and performs as promised. Basically how RAM works.

Experience: 1 Days

Looks nice, better cooling
I bought this 16GB 2X8GB Memory when it was on sale. With both sticks of ram in mobo, it only shows 8g in both bios and CPU-Z. Then I just test one of the sticks independently, it works, with the other stick by itself, errors, computer cannot start.
So I'm sure one of them is defective.
With this issue, I vote "one star - completely unsatisfactory" at this moment

Experience: 4 Months
-cheap price if bought on sale
The memory is easy to install and doesn't take much room. I have zero height issues with my hyper evo 212. Good enough for gaming, but would recommend holding off for the 16 gb if note on sale. Black design makes for a good piece of hardware for a themed build.

Experience: 1 Months
 Verified Owner
Quick and easy install
Not much bad things to say about the ram. It came in a nice packaged box and was easy to install. Took about 5 mins for change out the old ram and my system booted up flawlessly. I've been running it for 1 month now and there's no memory errors.

Experience: 2 Months

-Low cost for quality brand ($55 after mail-in rebate)
-Sink fins are minimal, so you can use with most aftermarket CPU coolers
-Handles extra voltage well enough (my Corsairs popped after +0.08v, these are taking +0.15)
Runs a bit hot when you OC (due to smaller sink)
Great price, good company.
I didn't subtract any stars, but the rebate process is a pain. 2 months later I haven't even gotten a confirmation that they've received my application. If I never see the rebate I'd be fine, without it this was still a better deal than the other brands.

EDIT: Just saw another reviewer say the sinks were too big. I put these beside a low profile Corsair Vengeance model and they were the same size. Take reviews with a grain of salt, people are just abusing the reward points.

Good, fast cheap
Standard ram, and it has fairly good heatsink, so go for it if you like the company.

Experience: 1 Months

Looks nice, nice timing
Tall heat sinks no fit under cpu cooler
May need to go with liquid cpu cooler or stock cooler to enjoy this memory

Experience: 1 Weeks
 Verified Owner
Cheap for 16gb
Nice color
none that I can find
I don't know too much about ram but I have this paired with a i5 3470 and a asrock z77 motherboard with no overclocking and it can run stress tests forever. The color of the modules also looks good paired with the motherboard.
