Reviews

from completed build Ascalon

Not sure where the overclocking review are coming from, but my particular kit doesn't cooperate with increased frequencies or tightened timings. Will be upgrading to a proper quad-channel kit in due time. Only advantage of these is the low voltage and low profile (great for small form-factor builds, not for workstations)

from completed build BIO DIGITAL JAZZ

Great RAM, great price! - most users could get away with 8GB - super low latency at 1600Mhz, with lots of headroom for overclocking!

Last time I bought memory, the only choice was between different capacities of green PCBs. When they say "low profile" they mean it! Very, very cool and simultaneously cute. 16G? Yeah, I guess I just like headroom (and I believe I've mentioned futureproofing).

Incidentally, ASUS means it when they insist you get memory on their fancy-schmancy list - The Z97-A/USB 3.1 sees these as 1333 out of the box. But their nice UEFI/BIOS makes that no problem at all.
