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.

Cons: none yet worried about heat spreaders but they clear just fine installed

Other Thoughts: some coolers just aint gonna clear on some mobos on a as rock 990fx extreme 3 it clears the stock cooler and maybe a mild cooler upgrade but if you need serious cooling water block and radiator are needed

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: The 3 sticks that work, work very well. Speedy, fast, and IMO look pretty cool. No issues with those three sticks yet.

Cons: A little less than two months later, my computer started to BSOD. Figured out it was one of my memory sticks. So for now I'm stuck with 12 GB.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

Sorry to hear that. Please follow the attached link to submit a RMA Request if you haven't already done so, our friendly support specialists are always glad to assist and we respond very promptly. Let us help you get a brand new working kit to you! Thank you.

Blessings,
GeIL Support

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: + 16GB - Overkill for what I do, but for the price, why not?

Cons: - Started to get random lockups after less than 6 months.
- Heat sinks are a bit overkill

Other Thoughts: Ran Memtest and got a few errors on some of the tests. I never pinned down which stick or sticks were bad as they require the entire SET to be sent in. So why bother checking? RMA process took nearly a month. You will receive a random package from CHINA because GeiL apparently doesn't really have much of a USA presence.

The new set seems to be fine, but we'll see how it goes the next few months... Probably won't be getting this brand again. RAM really shouldn't "go bad".

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible RMA process

Pros: They worked great for about 8 months. got them at a good price at the time of purchase.

Cons: One of the sticks keep giving me blue screen so I contated Geil for and RMA, I send the kit back to them about one month ago and I still don't know what happen to it I have send 5 emails and only one got a reply with "We will look into your issue"

I don't have any hope that I will get my Ram back so I cut my loses and brought another kit from a vendor that I know it will come thru when something goes wrong.

Other Thoughts: These companies need to get their act together, there are many more companies out there that will give you good custumer support and we as consumers will stick with them. I learned my lesson trying to get this ram cheaper, from now on I will only buy from vendors that I know that they will take care of me and have come thru before even if I have to pay a little more.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We apologize for the delay. Please rest assured that we always stand behind our products. Usually our turn-around time is about 7~14 business days, this may be an isolated incident. We will make sure that you get your new replacement back soon. Thank you for your great patience.

Blessings,

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Speedy RAM. Popped it in and it worked perfectly as soon as I started my computer. Currently clocked at 1750mhz as soon as I put it in.

Cons: Heatsinks are a little big, but they fit in just fine right next to eachother.

Other Thoughts: The price for this RAM is wonderful and the speed is great.

1 out of 5 eggsNo longevity dead after 7 months

Pros: Ram was economical, Newegg got it here on time.

Cons: 1 of the sticks went back 7 months after buying it. GeIL have not gotten back to me and it is going on day 3 with no response. I put in a RMA request via their incompany mail and also have made now 3 phone calls. No answer or response what so ever

Other Thoughts: I am seriously doubting I am going to buy this ram again and think I may ditch these others and get a 16 gig kit from a manufacturer that knows how to care for their customers.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We apologize for the inconveniences that you have experienced. Rest assured that we will always honor our warranty, we stand behind our products 100%. A valid RMA# has been issued to you and we will get you a new replacement ASAP. Please check your email and contact the Rep directly for any questions/concerns you may have. Thank you.
