    This was used to upgrade my OEM ASUS Essentio Series CM1740. I used the Crucial Scanner (which is both free and extremely reliable) to initially find compatible parts and eventually settled on this Ballistix Tactical Series Kit RAM.

    I initially had trouble installing it (I'm kinda new at the computer building thing) and ended up cutting my thumb on the sharp of edges of one of the memory sticks because I was installing it the wrong way initially.

    --> For first-time builders/upgraders, here's a protip: remember to line-up the memory stick in accordance to how the slot is shaped because if you try and force the component into the slot without paying attention, you might break your components or injure yourself like I did. <--

    I eventually realized my mistake after treating my injury before returning to my work. Everything's been working pretty well with the upgrade though. It's compatible, it runs much faster, and I feel like after coupling it with a new CPU (AMD A8-3870K) and graphics card (EVGA Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti), things have been looking better for this desktop overall.

    I use this computer as one of my video editing PCs and the parts I selected (including the RAM) were based on matching the capabilities of the components (as much as my motherboard would allow) of my primary PC to keep up with it for video rendering (mostly 1280x720 HD). Overall, I am impressed with the quality of this Kit Memory and I'm happy I made this first-time purchase with Crucial!

    The first set of RAM died, crucial replaced it under warranty. The new memory has been running about a week, I hope this batch works OK. I am keeping my old memory chips just in case (this was an upgrade from 8GB to 16GB)

        After failing to find 4GB RAM sticks (8GB total) from a competitor that would work with a P45 chipset, I came across these sticks from Crucial. I should have come here first...
        The RAM works perfectly, and is the fastest that I have found at this capacity (4GB/stick). Thank you, Crucial, for making fast RAM that rev's up our older (and new) PCs!

              Comments about Ballistix Tactical 4GB DDR3-1600 UDIMM:

              My computer already ran fairly well, but playing Skyrim with a lot of mods pushed it. I doubled my RAM to 16 Gb and noticed my computer seemed snappier. I put it to the test by installing the high resolution DLC, and my machine barely blinked. I thought I'd need to totally replace the computer to run Skyrim in HD. I don't even have a graphics card - I run an AMD APU, so it's all on the same chip. This upgrade boosted my overall system AND my video memory. Way to go!

                Straight forward with the "Crucial Scanner". You found out about your motherboard, how many slots available, what's the max RAM you can install and what kind of RAM you should buy.

                    I had to buy a new computer and it came with 4 gigs of ram. I added this module (4 gigs more) and on my Win 7 64 bit system I can see a difference. I do a lot video and photo work and the sstability and speed increases are noticable.

                    As usual, Crucial comes through. I used to build custom systems and always used Cruical for upgrades and replacements. Very satisfied.
