Just okay. I bought these becasue the metal heat sinks seemed cool and i liked that the ram was similar to the gold theme of my motherboard...but wish I had got ram with higher latency...Perhaps the G3258 is hindering the ram OC but I cant seem to keep my system stable above 1600mhz OC...at 1866 its sucks. Either way they were $55 and I will add another module at some point.

EDIT: I've been running this RAM with stable timings of 7-7-7-21 Ch2 @1600Mhz, 1.5V. It has made my system overall snappier.

This RAM is potentially very impressive for the price. XMP 1 runs its advertised speed, latency, and voltage. However, I’ve run these at 1866MHz, 8-8-8-24, 1.5V, and 2133MHz, 9-9-9-24, 1.5V. Since I can’t OC the memory controller on my CPU, I just keep at on XMP 1.

1600 MHz, low profile, a CL of 8. And at a nice price. Need I say more?

Buying two of them is an overkill. Don't do it, unless you know why you need them.

I was very excited to get a 1600 MHz cas 8 latency ram for only 40$ through newegg (no rebate). It looks cool and has a nice looking heat spreader and it's crucial.. but it runs at 1333 MHz at 9-9-9-24. It doesn't bother me much but that's not what I was expecting. IDK how to get it to run at 1600 MHz :( I tried and it was unstable I think. I'll live with it for now

The fastest RAM you can find I guess. It's CL8 and for this price, it's simply amazing.

Great RAM stick. Low profile, DDR3L and very low latency, its a good overclocker too.
