I have owned this kit for just under a year (bought it from a 3rd party site), and would buy again in a heartbeat. Immediately after installation, I ran it through stress testing at stock voltage to ensure proper operation, and it passed with flying colors. This RAM scores over 2750 in the Passmark memory test suite at stock clock rate/voltage, which is well over the speed of their default baseline rigs. A year later, the speed remains the same in benchmarks, and I can attest that this is most definitely the fastest and most reliable memory that I have owned.

My only cons that I can list are the height and the price.

- The height of the heat spreader is a bit tall, but does fit snugly under my heatsink using a Gigabyte z77 ud3h board. Height could be an issue depending on your board layout.

- The current price is over 2x as much as I paid for this on sale last year. If it is in your budget to get this, get it quickly! When it comes time for me to expand and future proof my system, I'll definitely be making room in the budget for this.

Claims to be "100% hand tested" on the packaging, but one of the two sticks failed memtest86+ miserably on arrival. Patriot's RMA policy requires that the customer pay shipping on defective products, so I'm out money on their defective "hand tested" product, and probably won't get the replacement in time for Christmas now. I won't be buying from Patriot again.
