    Fantastic low profile RAM. Easily overclocked to 1866.

    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)

    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.
