works 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]

GREAT 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.

Solid, 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.

Great 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.

Can'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.

Made 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.
