Not your average standard DDR3 memory. The Enhance CORSA Series is tested at much higher standards of 1500MHz CL9 and 1700MHz CL9 instead of the labeled 1333MHz CL9 and 1600MHz CL9. The extra guard-bands of an impressive 10% are to provide enhanced performance and more importantly, enhanced reliability that defines the spirit of “GeIL Standard”. The Enhance CORSA Series are compatible with all of the latest platforms with the labeled speeds under standard settings, while the enhanced speeds are embedded in Intel XMP profiles. The Enhance CORSA Series provide users with performance, quality and compatibility exceeding expectations.

1 out of 5 eggsGiel Enhanced CORSA (2X4)

Pros: I have had Geils before and they worked well.........HOWEVER: I have three sets of Five of this model on my desk that can't pass memory test when run overnight. In each case one of the pair tested by itself fails and in multiple working motherboards. The working pairs that remain only work in none B75 boards!

Cons: Have not heard from Geil on the first pair I wanted to RMA. I now have three sts to RMA. We buy memory from other sources as well as newegg and have never experienced such poor customer response.

Other Thoughts: If you are buying for others (Repairs, builds & upgrades etc.) you cannot afford the time to retest replacements and wait for RMAs. This is such a waste of time and money. Quite frankly, if had heard from Geil on the first RMA request I would not be writing this review. Quality of product is explicitly linked to the quality of service!

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: my friends have this memory and they love it. Can't say because my Heatsink overhangs the first memory slot, micro atx board

Cons: Looks like good memory, only word of mouth recommdations. Won't work with the COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 on a microatx board

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We're sorry hear that there is not enough clearance room on your motherboard for this kit. The raised fins do help to dissipate more heat, but some over-sized CPU heatsinks can get in the way of the first DiMM bank. Since it is a Micro ATX board, we'd recommend a smaller CPU heatsink. The reduced size and weight may also protect your motherboard down the road. Thank you.

Blessings,

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good quality ram as expected from GeIL, performs as rated and meets listed specs. The orange heatsinks aren't as bright as pictured, more of a metallic sheen and a bit more muted under normal light. Looks nice (not too flashy) and performs well.

Cons: I hated to do it, but this definitely cost GeIL and egg. The heatsinks are horrible. They're large, flimsy and poorly constructed. The slightest pressure caused the two halves to fold in some showing poor adhesion to the memory chips themselves. Installing them was the worst experience I've had with ram to date. If you press on the heatsink (since the edge of the pcb is obscured) to install, expect them to give way and the small securing tabs to bend. Requires pressing on the very corner of the ram where the heatsinks meet the corner of the pcb which is near impossible if you have larger hands. The probability of winding up cutting your fingertips is quite high.

Other Thoughts: Great company, great products. Just wish they wouldn't have cut corners with the flimsy, borderline useless heatsinks on these chips. They function great, look good once installed and can't complain about their performance. Had it not been for this flaw, they would've rated a solid 5 eggs in my book.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

Glad the memory is working great for you, and we're sorry to hear about your unpleasant experience with handling the heat-spreaders. This issue has been brought to the attention of our HeadQuarter and we will investigate it. If it is truly a quality issue, it will be corrected. Thank you for your feedback.


Blessings,

5 out of 5 eggsValue

Pros: Orange! It's a nice solution to someone who bought a tri-pack of 1600 sticks and needs to make their i7 happy.

Cons: The metal heatsyncs are harsh on the hands getting them in place.

Other Thoughts: Perhaps I can sell my tri-kit of 1600 RAM and get another two sticks of this stuff...
