My computer got the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) and restarted.

Keep in mind before buying that this ram does not work with some motherboards for some reason.

I got a gigabyte Z68 motherboard and an Intel 2500K to go alone with it.

I purchased this memory before being 100% sure it would be compatible with my new MSI motherboard. Consequently, my computer experiences 'freezing' often (my bad). The problem seems to be that these modules are designed specifically for Intel CPU's/motherboards and not AMD. I have checked the website specs for a few AMD motherboard manufacturers which seem to support this idea. None of them list PNY as compatible memory for their boards. I have since purchased a set of Kingston modules that will work. I hope this will help those who are considering this memory. The 4 star rating is for price point when compared to similar modules.

I've had 0 issues with this RAM since I bought it (about 1 month ago). I use it my gaming rig (for about 2 hours/day M-F, 5 hours on Saturdays) and have had no problems what-so-ever.

My system is
AMD X3 Rana 440 (3.0GHz)
PNY 128 GB Optima SSD SATA II 2.5-Inch Solid State Drive (SSD) P-SSD2S128GM-CT01RB
PNY Optima MD4096KD3 PC3-10600 8GB
PNY GeForce GTX 470
Asus M4A78T-E Socket AM3 ATX Motherboard
ThermalTake TR2 600 Watt PSU
LG GH24NS50 SATA DVD+/-RW Internal Drive (Black)
Antec 300 case

I've left everything at stock, and have ensured that the case has excellent air flow. It may be that the people who are having issues may have something with their mobo, not sure, but I couldn't be happier with this RAM.

In starting a VM, it took no longer than 23 seconds to start a CentOS 5.5 VM with MySQL, Apache, SSH and networking enabled (CentOS is slow but stable as can be)

In gaming, this system rules Borderlands at 1600x900. And at I can play Dead Space at 1600x900 without any issues nor lags. The game is breathtakingly beautiful and scary.

Maybe I got lucky, maybe my mobo likes PNY a lot more than others ( I know my Mac doesn't like PNY, but it's a Mac)

Anyways, I would recommend, PNY any day. When I fried my 9800 GTX+ they replaced it, free (since it really wasn't my fault, faulty PSU). They replaced 1 stick of bad RAM (many years ago).

My system does not get hot, RAM stays cool. I am happy.

Edit:
I installed Fedora 14 on this system and Fedora ran without any issues. I love my system, and I love this RAM! I would definitely recommend!

Runs perfectly, and in Dual-Channel mode. Comes with built-on heat dispersers, and never gets hot. Low price and high performance. No complaints.

I purchased this in August and discovered that one of the two sticks was bad. Thinking it would be a simple matter to RMA the module I did just that. I can't blame PNY for Fedex misrouting the package and claiming it was delivered, but I can hold them to account for their actions while discovering this fact. A week after it was shown as delivered I attempted to check the status of the RMA on the website only to get a blank page (Still do) when I put in the RMA number and email address. At that point I dialed the 800 number in the RMA confirmation email dated August 23rd, the first call picked up and then immediately disconnected. The second call routed to an operator who transferred me to a lady in tech support and the call disconnected. Thinking our voip system at the office was on the blink I used the land line and ended up with the same support person who apologized, put me on hold, and the call disconnected. So, I sent an email, this was Sept 7th. No response. A few days later on Sept 12th I was getting ready to go at this again and discovered a second set of tracking info from Fed Ex and contacted the company mail room and we discovered it had only just then been delivered. PNY sent a confirmation email the next day. I then received a request for a receipt, my bad, I had indeed included this in the unanswered email, but sent it again. I also sent an email detailing all the issues up until that point but Jan didn't seem to think she needed to respond or forward it. Today is the 27th. At this point they have yet to provide any update, new RAM, or return a single phone call. I'm not exactly sure what the next step will have to be.
In the past I have used Corsair, Crucial, Mushkin, Geil, Gskill, Kingston, Adata, and Patriot.

UPDATE: Constant BSOD's, ran memtest 86, bunch of errors came up. Don't buy! Thank god for Amazon's great service though!

ORIGINAL:Great item For the price. Inatially I was having problems with setting this up, but I just had them in the wrong DIMM Slots. Works great on MSI AM3 NVIDIA nForce ATX AMD Motherboard NF750-G55, and currently I have an Anthlon II X4 running @ 3ghz, And two Gforce 465GTX's on sli mode. Hopefully they don't mess up in the upcomming months.

If your thinking of buying this, 1st. make sure your motherboard supports DDR3 memory. 2. See if the Corsair Vengeance memory is still at 39.99. if it is, buy it instead. it is a better brand name and it is faster. this memory is 1333mHz and the Corsair Vengeance is 1600mHz. As of writing this, this memory is:
$40.77 and you get 2 sticks. both 4GB 1333mHz. And the Corsair Vengeance is
$39.99 and you get 2 sticks. both 4GB 1600mHz. i wish the price was that good 2 weeks ago when i bought it.. haha just lookin out for you buyers out there:)
Anyways the memory is great. i use it with my existing 2 sticks of Super Talent 2GB a piece at 1333mHz and the run together very nicely in the M4A87TD EVO motherboard. hope you get the best bang for you buck!
