As far as RAM goes, this is some decent stuff. Looks great in and out the case, performs well, and is reliable. I had one issue but its not worth marking it down. When I went into the BIOS settings to set up XMP, I noticed my RAM speeds were set to 1333MHz, so I spent 2 seconds to select 1600MHz and voila, its at its full potential. There was no real performance difference as 8GB of RAM is enough for any task nowdays, and it rarely gets backed up.
