Pros: easy XMP set up. noctua D14? no problem!

Cons: can get a bit flonky overclocking . .

i actually received this kit as a gift and i believe the price was slightly lower at the time ~$45 instead of the $55 they are now.

booted fine @ 1333 and set the 1.35 volt 1600 CL9 XMP profile in the BIOS on a P8Z77-V Pro BIOS without a problem.however, needed to goose the volts to 1.4 with a 103 Bclk (x37 i5-2400 @3.81) to keep them stable @1648Mhz

an out of the box solution that works well with a big Noctua NH-D14 this is great. but took of a 1/2 flame strictly for the overclocking "limitation" since going for 1800+ would most likely mean much looser timings. a hardcore tweaker would want to look elsewhere . . for someone like me looking for a little more with low power, this kit is great thumb.gif
