That's some extremely nice RAM.

Drawbacks of it would be:
- fat & tall heatspreaders (cannot do 8 GB, issues with clearance in some situations)
- price

I'd also say don't buy that if you don't intend to heavily overclock & tweak things in the bios.

That kinda RAM isn't meant for a basic user; be prepared to mess around to get its rated speed or better set up stably.

If those issues aren't scaring you off, go for it.
I wouldn't buy it due to the heatspreaders & price, but otherwise it's my kinda kit :)
