I bought this to be used with ASUS Maximus VII Impact (Z97 chipset) and it detected correctly on its first boot which makes things easier. The slim profile is nice too especially since I was building mini-ITX and space is really expensive commodity!

I am not a overclocker so I cannot comment on its overclocking ability. But since it operates on 1.5V I am sure there is plenty of headroom for overclocking as long as one has adequate cooling set-up.

Lower power consumption was one of the factor I was looking into so 1.5V is also a plus although one could 1.35V memories (I dont think I saw 16GB 1600MHz 1.35V though!).

I've been buying Crucial memory for years so when my current PC needed a bit of a "pick me up" and I found these on Amazon it seemed like an obvious purchase. Memory performance can be a limiting factor in your PC so more is usually better (provided you're running a 64bit operating system). These memory modules are "middle of the road" in terms of performance - they're not lightning fast but for most people, you're unlikely to notice. What they offer is a great balance between price and performance.

Some aluminium heatsinks cover the chips, looking like they might help a little bit to manage heat on the RAM, but not all that much. BUt then these aren't super-duper RAM chips so hopefully they won't get all that hot! Installation is simple. No changes needed to my PC, it just recognised and started using the extra memory straight away.

If you're struggling along with 4Gb or 8Gb of memory and you do a lot of graphics/video intensive work this could be a great upgrade.

Very nice kit of memory as always by Crucial. Also like the XMP Profile. Bought 2 kits (4 DIMMs) to bundle them for 3x4GB (total 12GB) for my s1366 based PC. Very happy with my purchase!

For £22 this RAM is a no brainer for any budget build. Crucial has a good reputation for reliability. The RAM is standard height with no pointless heat sink. It is very fast: Bus rate: 1600 MHz; Latency times: 9-9-9-24 and 1.5V, which is important for Intel CPUs. A lot of other 2 x 2GB 1600MHz kits at this price are CL10 or 1.65V so this is a bargain.

After some poor experiences with brands that take largely untested RAM chips (UTT memory) from various suppliers, test them, rate them and then build modules with them, I have decided that the only brands of memory modules worth using are those who either use fully tested memory chips from their suppliers (ETT memory) or who are a closely connected to the silicon manufacturing process (as with Crucial). A key point of difference is that Crucial (and Kingston, for example) run their modules at 1.5 volts (the design voltage for the chips). Those brands that specify 1.6 or 1.65 volts for DDR3 modules are pushing the spec for the chips in order to either make them work reliably or to try to squeeze a bit more performance from them. Either way, such modules are more likely to have reliability or compatibility issues, sometimes not revealing themselves until a long time after they were installed. If curious, read a device datasheet from a memory chip manufacturer, for the correct operating parameters.

In summary - I am very pleased with these modules from Crucial. They are being used in my file server at home, and after a 48 hour test period using MEMTEST86, they are now running unRAID with a number of plugins and add-ons.

Reading the reviews of this memory enticed me to have a closer look. My opinion in the past have been a bit pessimistic about upgrades of this nature because have added it to almost no effect. My desktop computer is about 3 years old and seemed more sluggish than when I first got it. Recently upgraded to Windows 10 which quickened things up a bit but still a bit slow so flushed with a bit of festive cash placed my order. Memory arrived very quick despite being the holiday Christmas period. Couple of screws to remove the side cover, existing memory removed, new shiny memory installed, switched on with little noticeable effect. After switching the computer on and off a couple of times it seems to have gone through a configuration process because it now fly`s. The boot process used to take about 2 minutes but now around 30 seconds. Programs load quick and I`m confident the computer is now quicker than it was brand new. This is the best £32.00 I have spent in a long timeCrucial Sport 8 GB Kit (4GBx2), Ballistix 240-pin DIMM, DDR3 PC3-12800 Memory Module

Arrived today and installed in cheap PC build. It's home inside an Asus A58M-E mobo with A4 6300 CPU running under Windows 10. The PC mark 8 benchmarks are below. The number in the brackets to the right (e.g. 1.4x) shows how much faster they are to some older DDR3 1333 I had lying around.

Memory Mark - 1210 MB/s (1.4x)
Database Operations - 46.2 KOps/s (1.32x)
Read Cached - 14334 MB/s (1.12x)
Read Uncached - 6784 MB/s (1.25x)
Write - 4773 MB/s (1.29x)
Latency - 69.3 ns (0.90x)
Threaded - 9181 MB/s (1.19x)

Overall about 25% faster, which is what you would expect.

I would have bought faster RAM for this machine if I was using it with the stock APU, but I have a separate card, so RAM speed is less important. It's going to be used as an audio-station so greater capacity is more important.

Overall I'm very happy.
