    No expert here: but in my experience Kingston has always been good, stable RAM. It is not known for overclocking abilities but it does a good job fot the price. If you are into changing default settings in your RAM you may want to look at something else.

    I've always used Kingston memory and never had any problems with it.

    As stated earlier it is not regarded as optimal overclocking memory but I have yet to have a bad module. Most will run at higher frequencies with a little tweaking or tighter timings, tighter timings seems to be their forte. If you don't care about warranty they will respond well to increased voltages.

    I would recommend it for every day use and "non enthusiast" (e.g. DICE & LN2) overclocking.

    Kingston makes some decent memories but it is no match against OCZ.
