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.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat RAM

Pros: Fast, cheap, and runs at 1600mhz. Has heat spreaders. Windows definitely feels snappier and as fast as can be(with i5 4570). I honestly think the difference going up to 2133 from here would not be noticeable on desktop performance.

Cons: None

1 out of 5 eggsOne module defective, customer service was DOA

Pros: Orange heat spreader was a nice contrast to the black PCB board and case. The one module of the two that did work passed Memtest and performed well under stress.

Cons: One module was DOA but that wasn't the con as sometimes it happens... its been one week since I submitted to Geil the first tech support request for an RMA, I got an automated response with a case #. I emailed their tech support address a second time referencing said case # with no response. Phone calls to the North American tech support line listed on their website aren't answered, not even by a machine. Customer service is non-existent, so if you buy this brand pray you don't have do an RMA with them.

Other Thoughts: I actually bought this through a different retailer as they had a cheaper price but I know that manufacturer's watch Newegg's customer reviews frequently. I hope someone at Geil PR deptartment reads this and kicks their service department in gear.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Memory!

Pros: Fast, easy to install, looks good. Was relatively cheaper than other memory brands at the time I bought it, and works just as well, if not better than any other memory brand I've used.

Cons: None so far!

Other Thoughts: A great purchase. I may purchase this item again.

5 out of 5 eggsAs stated

Pros: I don't have an intel setup to say that the profile works great but I can say that with the right AMD Phenom II processor, it works great. I have this at 1699mhz on CL9 settings with 1.55 volts, the AMD controller seems to be a good match. It allows me to overclock my AMD 1075T 3.0ghz to 3.8ghz with stability in the Ram and the processor. Gave me a 12% increase in gaming benchmarks on average over an AM2+ base and low latency DDR2 800 memory. I thought it would just give a few fps difference, but it was more like 8-10 difference with the same processor.

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: My setup:
Gigabyte 990X-UD3
Phenom II x6 1075T @ 3.8ghz
Nvidia GTX 460 SLI Setup
Seagate 250gb 16mb cache 7200rpm
1000w Rosewill powersupply
