I bought these as I was maxing out my 2x4GB sticks and only have 2 slots on my mother board. They were extremely easy to install, and I've been running them now for about a month and they have been working well. These were recommended to me by a "computer nerd" that owns his own computer upgrade/fix it shop. He said it is the only brand he runs. Overall, very happy!

I purchased this kit off of Amazon after spotting it on Newegg. It had a ton of positive reviews, which I've always put a lot of stock in, and the price seemed right. I put them in my brand new gaming desktop to expand my system RAM up to 32G and after a few days - endless BSOD. They typically pointed to Memory_Management, but weren't limited to just that. After weeks of troubleshooting and resource I pinned it down to a possible issue with the physical sticks of RAM I had installed. I ran memtest86 for several days, starting with the RAM I had originally in my system and testing one stick at a time (I currently have 6 of my 8 DIMMS filled) and low and behold the problem was with these new sticks! I'm talking 60,000+ errors in test 7, 80,000+ errors in test 8! I went back to Newegg and noticed a number of customers with the same exact issue as me. It seems this particular kit is prone to issues out the box, but once you get a working set they are good to go. I requested a replacement (which was very prompt) and have had no issues since (knock on wood). I definitely made sure I ran memtest86 immediately after installing the replacement set to make sure everything was good. So just be sure, if you do buy these, to test them thoroughly before you settle in and start using them, otherwise you may end up in a BSOD nightmare like I did.

Six months ago, I purchased two new Dell T3600 workstations primarily for use with AutoCAD, MS Office, Adobe Creative Suite, and SketchUp. It seems that memory upgrades from the manufacturer are always more than double what it costs to buy top rate components like this that I can easily install myself.

I know some of you will say that only an idiot would buy a workstation instead of building it yourself. Others will say that only an idiot would put aftermarket RAM into a new workstation. I don't have time to build a new workstation every 6 months (that is about how often we need to replace a workstation to keep things in cycle)and I appreciate that an off-the-shelf has Autodesk and Adobe certification...you don't know how nice it is until your software dealer's tech support staff tries to blame problems on your non-certified hardware. Additionally, I am still cheap enough to figure I would rather pay myself over $200 for 10 minutes of work to install this RAM than to pay Dell the same to do it for me.

Now to the subject RAM...it works great, makes my applications run smooth, and makes me forget that it is even there. In my opinion, that is the sign of good reliable hardware...it works so well that you forgot it is there.

After getting memory specs from Dell's website, I visited Kingston's website and confirmed that I was ordering the right stuff. Amazon delivered the product quickly at a great price and the memory has been working flawlessly ever since.

I have always had a great experience purchasing Kingston RAM. Typically I use Kingston Value RAM, but in this instance I went with the HyperX Blu product (even though it has a "souped-up" name).

My reasons for using Kingston RAM are (1) it is typically on the qualified products list of most of the major motherboard manufacturers, (2) they seem to pay greater attention to either the subcontracted components or the direct manufacture of their products, (3) they have a great amount of support through online forums and directly with the manufacturer), and finally (4) I haven't had a failure yet.

This RAM works flawlessly with my AMD FM1 processor on a Gigabyte motherboard. The performance frequency is as indicated, yet does take some slight configuration in the BIOS to reach 1600MHz speeds.

I will advise those purchasing RAM to consider two 8GB sticks as opposed to 4 x 4GB sticks - but read about your specific motherboard application first. The reason, typically, to go with two sticks is the dual-channel configuration that allows for optimal memory allocation and usage by the motherboard. In short, two sticks usually means faster access than four - but again much of this depends on the specifics of your motherboard / CPU manufacturer.

Months and months later this product is still working as specified on a combination OpenSUSE 12.3 Linux / Windows XP 64 system. I could not be more pleased.
