4 out of 5 eggsworks as should

Pros: Price, works as should, have had no issues

Cons: was expensive before, as far as i know ocz does not make ram anymore - i could be wrong. But if it is true, it would be less likely to work in future builds, less support etc

Other Thoughts: Haven't overclocked them so I cannot comment on how well it OC's. Has been stable on my computer, at standard 1k mhz [you need to oc to grab full use of the 1600 mhz on my system - i7-920 evga motherboard]

5 out of 5 eggsGREAT RAM

Pros: Bought this in 2008 to go with my i7-920.

NEVER once had an issue with them. Speeds as advertised. Never overclocked. At the time, 2008, these looked GREAT.

Cons: - Could get slightly warmer than I am now used too..but never had an issue due to it so no eggs being taken away.

3 out of 5 eggsmeh

3 out of 5 eggsSolid, if below advertised

Pros: Solid -- Lasted me a few years through everything from regular web browsing to video playback to high-end gaming
Low-profile -- Means it's unlikely it'll interefere with heatsinks and cables, depending on your situation

Cons: Falsely advertised -- I could never quite get these to run at advertised spec. I could get them to run at 1600MHz via my Sabertooth X58's BIOS overclocking utility, but only with 9-9-9-24 timings instead of 8-8-8-24, even at 1.6V

Other Thoughts: I've replaced these with 6x4GB G-Skill 1866MHz DIMMs purely because they were a steal at the time; these sticks showed no signs of slowing down by any means. I did, however, notice that the G-Skills actually ran at their advertised speed and timings. I'll echo what another reviewer said: I wouldn't recommend OCZ anymore, but these are by no means poor sticks.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat RAM

Pros: *Decent price I guess: $91.99 ($71.99 after $20.00 Mail-In Rebate)
*Easy to install
*Worked fast enough for me
*Almost 4 years and still going strong

Cons: Nothing much

Other Thoughts: Triple-channel is unique and I don't think it'll be compatible with most other desktops, but it's worked fine for my compatible motherboard.

1 out of 5 eggsCan't overclock to advertised speeds

Pros: Has lasted close to 3 years when underclocked.

Cons: I've been running this kit for almost 3 years. Unfortunetly, I didn't realize that I was running them at 1082 instead of the advertised 1600. Simply put, the RAM does not run at 1600. The machine bluescreens.

5 out of 5 eggsMade it almost 3 years!

Pros: This memory has treated me well. Purchased on March 2010 and these sticks have endured thousands of hours of system uptime and equally as many hours in gaming.

However, I purchased these sticks when OCZ was more respected among system builders. There was a time when I recommended them to everyone.

Cons: I can't really dock ANY stars for a product that lasted me almost three years. I just wish that OCZ would have kept up with their quality control and image.

Other Thoughts: Interestingly enough, I bought these in 2010 at $170! Amazing what a few years does. Even for the 6gb triple channel kits they are obnoxiously cheap.

Overall, would no longer recommend this brand to any system builders. If you're building a system that is using triple channel memory, you're doing it wrong anyway.

2 out of 5 eggsWould not recommend

Pros: Did the job for about 2 years.

Cons: It comes with 3 x 2 gb sticks. One died in about 6 months, the next one died about a year after that. One still remains.

Other Thoughts: Go with something cheaper. It didnt work out for me in the end.

1 out of 5 eggsFails on cold startup

Pros: works when warm

Cons: These would cause crashes when the machine is started when cold (ie powered off over night). Problem went away when memory was replaced with GSKILL. Problem showed up in other computer when installed there.

5 out of 5 eggsOwned for 3 Years no issues

Pros: I have had this along with my i7-920 works great. I have not needed to overclock the memory so maybe that is why I have had zero issues with this memory.

Cons: No cons, love the product works as expected.
