I've left everything at stock, and have ensured that the case has excellent air flow. It may be that the people who are having issues may have something with their mobo, not sure, but I couldn't be happier with this RAM.
In starting a VM, it took no longer than 23 seconds to start a CentOS 5.5 VM with MySQL, Apache, SSH and networking enabled (CentOS is slow but stable as can be)
In gaming, this system rules Borderlands at 1600x900. And at I can play Dead Space at 1600x900 without any issues nor lags. The game is breathtakingly beautiful and scary.
Maybe I got lucky, maybe my mobo likes PNY a lot more than others ( I know my Mac doesn't like PNY, but it's a Mac)
Anyways, I would recommend, PNY any day. When I fried my 9800 GTX+ they replaced it, free (since it really wasn't my fault, faulty PSU). They replaced 1 stick of bad RAM (many years ago).
My system does not get hot, RAM stays cool. I am happy.
I installed Fedora 14 on this system and Fedora ran without any issues. I love my system, and I love this RAM! I would definitely recommend!
Everything was new, and I loaded W-7 64-bit OS. Initially after setting up the Bios the machine loaded
and ran well (1st-time) Then for some strange reason on a cold restart the machine would boot and flag
warning messages about certain modules that failed, and memory errors etc. Ultimately it would restart
and the same thing would happen. I reseated the memory and then W-7 would run fine again until the next
cold restart. This problem was perplexing. I was not sure if it was motherboard, memory, or CPU and without
any new hardware to swap I was stuck. I repeated the above events for about 1-week, and then W-7 started
reporting memory errors more frequently, leading me to conclude that the memory was bad. I returned it,
and ordered new memory (not PNY), and installed it in my machine, which runs perfectly now, no errors and
it is amazingly fast. I can now run 5 or 6 applications without any delay what so ever. This machine
is the bomb!
I don't know if I got a bad memory device or if PNY has a problem with their DDR3 product line, but I
had to return it for a refund, which I must say AMAZON is GREAT for refunding defective electronic
components! I will definitely continue to use Amazon for electronic purchases. I have built 7 new
PC's this year for friends and family and am an avid PC hobbyist. I am also an Engineer, and oddly
enough MY system was the only machine out of seven that had a problem. I guess in a way that is good!
PNY makes great graphics card and I had purchaed PNY memory before. A great value in the arena with all the other competition.
