Works at advertised speeds without problems. Patriot is a well known brand with great quality. Heatsinks look very nice and they should work with heat well too. No problems at all. Please note that it's CL10 vs other RAM that you can find with 1866MHz speed and CL9 which is a bit faster. It's not like you are going to see much of a difference though. Also for 1866MHz you will most likely bump voltage above 1.5v to around 1.55v. You can use this RAM with 1600MHz speed and CL9 at 1.5v no problems. It can also be overclocked a bit but it's much harder now on Intel platforms. Never bumb voltage to above 1.65v levels.
Bought these on October 28th for U$ 63.74. Knowing it was a very large discount, I was afraid I was going to get a refurbished item, but thankfully it was not the case. The package arrived in pristine condition despite being shipped to Brazil.
It worked right out of the box on my mobo (MSI Z77A-GD65, non-gaming edition). I've been using Folding@Home 24/7 on that computer for the last 4 months and had absolutely no crashes ever since.
These sticks can also be overclocked further. I got mine to boot @ 2133Mhz - 1.5V, with the same timings as the 1866Mhz, but it wasn't stable enough to fold. With a little voltage bump, they can probably handle 2133Mhz, maybe even more. I could get them to boot @ 1866Mhz and 9-10-9-30-1T with 1.5V too, but the system seemed even less stable than my prior attempt. In the end, I decided to run them with the XMP profile, since Folding@Home does not really care for small memory speed bumps.
One dimm died on me after about 6 months. RMA process was relatively smooth with very prompt email replies. Was provided option to either return the faulty dimm (half kit) or the whole kit. Decided to return the full kit to ensure compatibility. Shipping to Taiwan for RMA at my own cost and received a brand new kit. Whole process took just over 3 weeks. One star off for the failed dimm.
