I used this kit in my first build focusing on audio rendering and some on-the-side gaming. Partnered with my other components (which I will list at the bottom of the review) I'm getting some fairly decent performance. Everything was as it was specified, and I haven't had to do any tweaking with the timing. When I do look to upgrade my RAM (being that it would be best to have at least 16GB for what I'm doing), I will definitely be buying another one of these kits!

My build:
Gigabyte 990FXA - UD3 AM3+
AMD FX 8350 Eight-core CPU
Samsung 840 EVO 120GB SSD
EVGA GTX760 Superclocked 2GB Video Card
Windows 8.1 OS

Life time warranties are getting more popular to come across with RAM, but I don't think you will ever need it. MOBO automatically put it at 1600 and configured it for best performance. The RAM does not get hot, which is a nice change. Does its job and does it well.
I recommend!

I was surprised at the price of this kit, especially with the recent surge in memory prices. Figuring this is one of Kingston's top tier memory and was about the same price as 8gb of BLU I gave it a shot. The build wasn't for gaming, but I did try some overclocking just to test the memory. Rock solid. The included XMP changes the timings but not the frequency, but the ram was 1600 out of the box (unlike some other brands that are "1600" but only after XMP or manual adjustment).

The heatsink is massive, although at stock frequency and voltage it is hardly necessary.

Kingston makes great products, and although I have been using G.Skill for the past few years in all my gaming builds, it might be time for a return to form.

I got 3 sets of these to upgrade my machine. I had 24 GB of some other ram that would not work. Matching model #s but were made a t different factories and had different timings for some reason. These all match and work flawlessly. Great ram at a great price.

Had this pair on my wish list for over a year and a half - figuring 90 bucks was too much to pay, as my system worked fine. FINALLY a price reduction, and I bit. Already had a identical set in my desktop PC, and patiently waited. Windows Experience score maxed out to 7.9 (from 7.7) after snapping these in.

Bought these to go with some older HyperX sticks not sold anymore. Specs and numbers say these are actually the same, but with different heat spreaders, at nearly 1/2 the price people want for the older ones.
