  • Running fantastic with no faults, easily overclocked to 3200Mhz
  • Be sure to verify you MOBO can support dual channel for this product before you get it. Just check the MOBO manufacturer's website. I didn't, but 8 gigs on a single channel is still more than enough so far.
  • This works great, OC in the bios on Asus ROG Hero and is lightning Fast.
  • Works great and compatible with my Asus Maximus viii hero motherboard. All RAM detected, stable, and at speeds it promised.
