I will be purchasing from Adata in the future.
Excellent Memory, I used this with my Asus Z87-Plus Motherboard (YAY, Color Matching)
Installing the memory was very easy. And to get the listed speed, Simply enable XMP (Intel Platform) on your Motherboard (Usually somewhere in your Overclocking Menu)
Color is a bit darker than the Picture listed.
The Modules themselves feel very well built
Worked on my Haswell LGA1150 Motherboard.
Update 11/3/13 -
After a week of running the Included XMP Profile on my ASUS Z87-Plus, I turned on my PC and Did not POST. I had no other Overclocking on any part of my system and returning the RAM to Default 1333Mhz (From XMP 1600) fixed the issue. Im not entirely sure what might have happened. Im guessing I either need to tighten the timings Manually or I have a faulty Kit. Regardless, At this time, My score has not changed.
Update 4/2/14 -
Kit has been running strong at XMP Settings without any problems or any effort on my own part since last update. Great kit.
Update 9/25/14 -
Still running strong. Thats was clearly a fluke I experienced. Extremely stable RAM

I paired this RAM with an Asus Maximus VII Hero motherboard, Core i7 4790K, and Asus GTX 970, and 256 SSD.
This RAM performs flawlessly. It is on the verified RAM compatibility list for that Asus motherboard. It gets great reviews. Adata has great customer service if you need a replacement (from my understanding).
You may wonder why you should spend the money and get 2400 MHz RAM (OC) vs 1600 MHz. In my research I came across an article where they switched out the RAM speeds on that motherboard and tested gaming framerates. They saw an increase in framerates with each faster RAM over 1600MHz, but no benefit above 2400MHz. 2400MHz was only $30 more than the 1600MHz. My motherboard supports up to 3200MHz, but those sticks are generally 2x the money for no performance increase that I have ever read about. You may argue that newer games that are going to come out will need more RAM for higher textures etc etc. My argument would be that when that comes true you are going to want a new MB/CPU/GPU anyways, and the pricepoint for faster RAM now is just not worth it. Plus, newer games are going to be DirectX 12 which will give you better framerates and less processing load on the same computer.
With my computer setup, I was having a problem of random unannounced shutdowns and reboot a few minutes into 4K gaming. After many many cross-examinations, troubleshooting and half a dozen different types of stress tests, I discovered the culprit is my aging power supply. All other components are error-free. This RAM has undergone many rigorous tests without failures.
This RAMs XMP profile was immediately recognized and loaded in the VII Hero BIOS without issues.

Great Memory at a Great Price
By Jason S.
This is the lowest costing 19200 DDR3 that I felt comfortable purchasing for my overclocked fourth gen i7 workstation. I must say that the build quality is at that of G.Skill or Mushkin RAM, however at a much lower price. My computer has been running this for about a month now and not so much as a restart has been required of the system.
These are undoubtedly high quality modules throughout and the modules are more of a gold than the yellow they appear in the picture, if that means a lot to you.
