The fastest ship in the ocean just got faster. Corsair's XMS3 modules take performance to the next level and beyond. This dual channel kit has been tested together to work at 1600Hz at latencies of 7-7-7-20. Once the modules were tested they were immediately packaged to ensure that the matched sets stayed together.

Corsair's legendary reliability is backed with a lifetime warranty. The dual path DHX aluminum heat spreaders on the modules help to extend their life by keeping them cool. The extended chip coolers are supplemented by a PCB cooler. Both sets of coolers are finned for extra surface area. The chip coolers are ribbed for maximum cooling area. Win the race with Corsair XMS3 memory modules.

5 out of 5 eggsFast... For A Price!

Pros: Beautifully finished aluminum heatsink and proprietary PCB. Very fast and tight timing with CAS Latency: 7-7-7-20. Run and play very well on my Asus P5E3 Premium WiFi @ n mother board (intel X48 board). These Corsair RAMs are the best of the best!

Cons: Price! Very expensive since DDR2 are still mainstream. I paid $505.00 for these over this summer. Now, these are over $100.00 below what I have paid... kinda sucks if you're an enthusiast.

Other Thoughts: These module of Corsair are only capatible with Intel X48 chipset and the a few Nvidia chipsets. Do your homework and check for the qualifying mother boards that support these RAMs with this CAS Latency. Example: Intel X38 chipset does not officially support these RAMs... hence, one must resort to overclocking the FSB frequency in order to obtain a 1:1 bus-ram ratio.
You MUST input the CAS Latency (7-7-7-20) in the BIOS manually. I hope this bit of info clear up some of the frustrations for everyone.

5 out of 5 eggsF A S T!

Pros: I don't know why others are complaining about this RAM. I have an Asus Striker 2 Extreme motherboard and my 2 x 2 GB (7 7 7 20) kit is working great on it with no issues whatsoever. As one of the guys here said I did have to set the timings myself as the board actually required 1066 but can go uo to 2000. At any rate I have always used corsair RAM throuhout the years and have never had a bad stick ever. You definately get what you pay for and to me Corsair stands for quality...

Cons: none whatsoever

Other Thoughts: :o) which one?

1 out of 5 eggsWrong SPD

Pros: Nothing good to say

Cons: The SPD does not match the memory. Very expensive to exchange for proper SPD.

Other Thoughts: Newegg should not offer this memory.

Manufacturer Response:

SPD errors can in some cases be attributed to a BIOS problem with the motherboard. This memory is 100% tested and guaranteed to operate at its rated specifications on motherboards that support this memory speed. Please contact Technical Support or use our RAM GUY forums or online Tech Support Express and we will help you resolve your issue.

3 out of 5 eggsNothing that special

Pros: Works with eVGA 790i. I didn't try advertised timings but out of the box it does 1750 8-8-8-24-1T @ 1.925 without error.

Cons: Price. This is nothing special for its ridiculous price... that's the reason I gave it 3 eggs.

Other Thoughts: I remember when I switched to Redlines. It significantly shorten my boot and application launch time and I thought I'd have the same experience buying these. Had to build a 2nd rig for a friend with this memory, Xeon X3350 and above mobo (like the one I built) but there is nothing to brag about except the extra cash you have to spend to get these. I have a pair of Mushkin 996601 on my own rig with the same configuration and can run them at the same speed and latencies as this one, but with 200 bucks less. Benchmark results are basically identical... It didn't make the case hover or my OS boot faster. Save the extra and get yourself a higher end video card. It's all about a rig for decent gaming experience, isn't it?

5 out of 5 eggsREAD THE SPECS!!!

Pros: Don't own this product, but Corsair is one of the best around, contrary to one of the reviews on this product, which wasn't a problem caused by their product.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This is in response to KCComp's review. Please note the motherboard he has does not natively support DDR3 1600MHZ, it merely supports it overclocked, which is no guarantee that it will for sure run at that speed. "DDR31800(O.C.)/1600(O.C.)/1333/1066/800 MHz" is taken from the specs for the board he has, O.C. clearly meaning overclocked. NOT CORSAIR'S FAULT!!!!!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Ram

Pros: Runs at specified speed, very stable and super fast cant go wrong

Cons: you have to set timing and mhz manualy but not a problem for most

Other Thoughts: To the guy below I have a X38 board and had to set the FSB up to reach 1600mhz.

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not run at published speeds

Pros: 2GB DIMMs allow 8GB total

Cons: Does not run at published speeds. Max stable speed is 1200MHz at 9-9-9-24. Won't even run 1200MHz at published 7-7-7-20 timings. Won't run advertised 1600MHz speed even at 9-9-9-24 timings using Corsair's specified 1.9v vDimm on Asus P5E3 Deluxe (X38).

Other Thoughts: Corsair refuses to issue RMA and returns a form letter asking me to "update BIOS to the latest" etc. even though I already told them in the RMA request that I had the latest 0601 BIOS. Corsair doesn't read their RMA request text or stand behind their highest-end, most-expensive set of DIMMs. Last Corsair product I will ever buy.
