Stable, fast RAM modules.

I have my Q9650 overclocked to 4.0ghz with these modules installed.

Definitely some of the best 2GB DDR2 modules you're going to find lingering around. I was previously using 4x 1GB OCZ reapers, and these are just as fast, while placing less stress on the nforce chip on my motherboard due to the 2 DIMMs instead of 4.

They don't look too bad either, but I prefer black PCB instead of green for my computer parts, but that's just being picky.

For comparison/compatibility, I run:

This ram is Very good, popped her right into my msi 790GTX-E45 worked great!
This is very compatable ram, do not have to set 1066ghz does it for you.
Great coolling, as you can see on the photo the fins keep it 7 degrees cooler!
The Ram is fantastic!

I've always been a big fan of Kingston product so although this cost a bit more than their brand name competitor it was something worth it. The heat inside my case dropped about 5 degrees with this memory but if you have a small form factor, the over sized heat sink may not fit. The memory is about 1-inch taller than the standard ones, and when you install it, use gentle force as it can bend if you push too much pressure and it's not 100% aligned correctly.

Exactly as described and exactly what I needed. I choose these for two reasons:
- First, they were the closest match to the memory I already had.
- Second, my memory cooler could only handle the two sticks I already had, so when I saw these with their tall heatsinks, I thought "hmmmm..... these are basically the same thing I have, but with heatsinks that stick out beyond the memory cooler for the existing sticks... maybe I won't have to modify my exisiting setup!"

And, they worked perfectly. It turned out, underneath those massive heatsinks, they were the exact same thing I already had. And, they did indeed fit in the slots between the existing sticks without changing the setup of the contact plates on the memory cooler. With the tall heatsinks sticking up into the airflow, they stay cool enough I didn't need to change the existing cooling setup.

I started having some lock up/freezing problems that forced me to hard boot my system. Now my system is 7 years old and I thought that maybe some new memory would do the trick. I know my other memory was starting to get some bad spots on it. The new memory didn't get rid of the freeze up totally, but it did cut down on them. It did take a couple of reboots to get my system running smoothly again. I'm not sure how long my system is gonna last, but for now this is a cheaper solution that building a new one. Chances are I'll order another pair!

Already had a set of these in my dual boot (XP, Ubuntu) desktop. I was hoping for a speed increase putting the additional 4GB in. But Windows XP can't use the extra memory, and there was very little to no speed increase in Ubuntu. I hate the thought of upgrading to Windows 7 or 8, since XP does everything I want, and Windows 7 is so buggy. Seller shipped fast, and was nice to deal with.

Looking for fast DDR2 ram for your old machine? This is it, and it's all that's left and it's GREAT. Let me squeeze out some more overclocking from my q9550 on a p5q pro turbo. They take tons of wattage but the heat sinks and fan accessory keep them plenty cool to the touch even. Just go ahead and order them before you can't

Bought this product for a friend who desperately needed more memory for his video editing hobby. Installed into his system and his motherboard (a Gigabyte product) immediately recognized it as 1066 memory. No messing with BIOS was necessary.

Weeks later I find myself in need of an upgrade as well, so I decide to go with these particular modules. I installed into my system, and my motherboard (another Gigabyte product) doesn't recognize it as 1066 memory. So I go into settings, and change a bunch of things, but I can't for the life of me make the board boot with the 1066 settings.

So they work for me at 800 mhz, but your mileage will vary depending on your motherboard and BIOS options.

Everything accounted for, I am sufficiently satisfied with the purchase.
