This memory kit needs some more love in the reviews. For me, it's been a perfect choice for memory on the X99 platform. By running at 2666 MHz, it allows you to stay at 100 BCLK speed, which makes overclocking your CPU much easier, and it does that speed at just 1.2v. As a bonus, it also comes with a 2800 speed, which is selectable via XMP in the BIOS. For both speeds, all the necessary timings are pre-programmed in with the XMP profiles.
I purchased two separate kits, for a combined total of 64 GB (the max addressable for a Core i7-5820K) in my MSI X99 Krait. Typically you're supposed to get one single kit for best compatibility, but even though I mixed two kits they worked perfectly together. I just filled up all 8 slots, went in to the BIOS and selected XMP Profile #1 for 2666, and everything worked the first boot up. No voltage, timing, or System Agent tweaks were needed, and all DIMMs passed MemTest with no errors. I need the full 64 GB to run multiple virtualizations for software testing, and haven't regretted maxing out the memory.
Another plus: these are low-profile DIMMs, which becomes very important if you have large air coolers. These memory sticks should fit under any CPU coolers on the market. Also, no sharp edges on the heatsinks make them easy to push down to insert and seat properly.
Finally, although it's very subjective, I really appreciate the understated look of this product and their black aluminum heatsinks, without having ridiculous claws/teeth/protrusions coming out everywhere and frightening small children. These modules should match with any computer case theme you might have.
I wouldn't hesitate to buy them again.
