      I bought two sets of these memory sticks over a year a part. And the memory sticks from both batches have performed reliably. I have a total of 32Gb of RAM in an Asus Z97-A motherboard supporting various VM instances and these RAM modules have been stellar. They're low profile so won't interfere with your heatsinks. I have enough clearance under a Cooler Master 212. The timings are just right at 9-9-9-24.

      Two thumbs up!

      Installed the kit, booted my desktop - but the computer did not even turn on after installation. So I removed one, and the machine then booted, but did not recognize the additional memory. I did ground myself prior to installation so pretty sure I did not fry the sticks (although you never know). I switched the sticks into different slots - nothing. I ended up buying other sticks from a different manufacturer and they worked, so it wasn't the slots. Who knows - maybe damage in transit. Won't be buying the ballistix sports series again.

                    There is really not much to say about a memory upgrade to 16GB. The Crucial kit was anticipated to be just what was needed and it is. This memory has tested good in my stress testing and has given me no problems at all.

                    As usual B&H shipped quickly and the memory was delivered on time. This is better then going to the local retailer where you have to deal with traffic and long checkout lines.

                                  This is one of my best system upgrade by far. My PC computer does a better job running multiple applications simultaneously. In particular Adobe CS6 is now running faster and able to handle large 750+mb image files with ease. Installation was quick and easy. I have not encountered any issues so far. Something to consider if you are looking to increase your system performance.

                                      The Cruicial 16GB memory kit popped easily into my ASUS P8H77-V motherboard and performed as specified even though it was not on the ASUS sanctioned memory vendor list. Good memory at a good price.
                                      I can always rely on the selection of products offered by B&H.

                                            Absolutely uneventful, I ordered this memory DIMM, it shipped, I received it earlier than expected. Product works as advertised.

                                            Thanks you!

                                                  Go to the Crucial web site to be sure the cards work with your machine. They have a search system that will make recomendations that they will garantee compatable with your motherboard.

                                                  No problems on the install and the boot time was notcibly faster. Installed 2 sets for 32 gig.

                                                      This memory worked perfectly in my Dell XPS 8500. I bought two sets for a total of 32GB. My primary uses are very large images with many layers in Photoshop, and compositing. It is a large leap from 8GB with 64-bit apps that can take advantage of it properly.
