Top customer reviews
The clock speeds are FAST. Yes, the might not be top of the line RAM sticks, but I really see the difference between standard and HyperX not that I have tried it for myself.
The most important thing for computers these days is ultimately RAM. Too little: Can't run anything. Too much: Your computer can actually lose perfermonce due to allocation timing (RAM scramblers are great too if your BIOS supports them). 8GB is (in my opinion) the perfect amount of RAM of you aren't one of those crazy people who need the entire Adobe CS6 Suite opened at once (those people are crazy!). 16GB is great if you need to export HUMONGOUS video files, or need to run multiple Systems at the same time, but it honestly seems like too much to me.
I recommend this to anyone who needs affordability, reliability, and speed.
Update: Bought the Kit back in 2012 and has issues as noted above. I only used one stick and I'm going to try the other in a new build. But, back in 2012 I paid $31.99 for the Kit. I know see it's $110.00 What has happened to the price of memory? Wow
