Our Review
It has a little slower memory timings than some of the other Dominator types but still it out performs standard DDR3 memory quite impressively.  If you use a windowed case and can see the memory installed this memory is definately worth it.  It has been designed to look as impressive as is performs and with the large heatsinks and the Airflow II Fan Kit it stays even cooler when gaming.

Other Reviews
J CourtIf you are going to stress your memory with gaming then the additional fan in my opinion is worth it.  You don't hear an increase in noise because like me you will probably be running way more case cooling fans anyway.  I use this with a Core i7, don't know how it performs with an AMD but it does fine with Intel.
Martin AI found the Fan a little fiddly to install but other than that the memory is great and it hasn't given me any issues in 2 months of use.
Craig SI have installed this memory in a friends PC and can say honestly I was in awe of its performance, admittedly it was running with an extreme i7 and Twin SLI Graphics Cards as well but it handled everything thrown at it including MW3 at full spec.
Chris LewisFor the speed they run at they are the best in the market, I haven't found anything close.  They are getting a little dated with all the speed increases in DDR3 but still worth every penny.
