5 out of 5 eggsplug in and forget

Pros: Plugged these in once and forgot about them. They will give you no trouble, even after some abuse.

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: It's RAM, you should never have problems with it.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible Ram

Pros: It worked for like a week or so.

Cons: This ram gave me far more problems then any ram I have ever bought. I went through multiple hard drives with this horrible ram. At first I was unaware that the Ram itself was corrupting my hard drive since it seemed like it could be some other aspect of the machine. The ram worked fine as far as I could tell never crashing my games or doing anything else odd. After months of replacing the hard drives and trying different things like new power supplies and other items I discovered a program that would do stress testing on the ram and one of the chips came up totally bad.

Other Thoughts: I will never buy another Corsair product as long as I live.

Quality control should CATCH this stuff period.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfectly reliable

Pros: No installation or reliability issues.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I did my research before hand and carefully matched this ram with with my motherboard. It was on the relatively narrow list that was certified by the manufacturer. I have had absolutely no issues.

5 out of 5 eggsSeems to run anywhere too !

Pros: Fast, cool, appears to be very voltage friendly. Build quality is impressive. I've owned better clocking memory, but this will still o/c well.

Cons: price is still pretty stiff. I guess when you know somethings good it's gonna cost you.

Other Thoughts: I've been running a couple 2GB sticks of this in various machines for at least a year now. It's always proved out machines or ram and has always performed well. I needed a couple sticks to finish a build and these 2.1V sticks worked and are still working flawlessly on my 1.8V only motherboard. Will it last? Don't know, but it's been going great for over a month now. Bone stock on the clock.

1 out of 5 eggsRMA's Galore

Pros: Fast, other than none.

Cons: I have 3 sets of this stuff and all DDR2 1066 and have replaced all of them at least once now and probably twice on a couple. They have gone through 2 different systems and on both I have had to tweak voltages/timing manually just get to run properly.

Other Thoughts: Unless you like RMA'ing often I wouldn't buy this. I have some G.Skill running in a server and have never RMA'd.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome memory

Pros: Absolutely amazing. Runs everything that i threw at it. I was going to get 8gb but after it could handle anything with only 4gb so i decided to save some money and buy more books for college instead.

Cons: It's been almost 2 years now and a stick finally died :(
Going to RMA it when i have time but it's been really reliable since.

Other Thoughts: Don't place the fans unless you are going to overclock.
They're kinda noisy.

1 out of 5 eggsLike replacing your RAM every 6 months? Then buy this stuff!!!

Pros: Works at advertised spec for a little while. Didn't need any tweaking in bios.

Cons: My second set is throwing errors after roughly 9 months. The first set died after about 6.

Other Thoughts: The manufacturer's RMA process wasn't bad for the first set (as RMAs go). Even so, this product isn't worth the hassle. I'd rather purchase another brand than keep replacing this junk every 6 to 9 months.

3 out of 5 eggs1 Failed after 8 months

Pros: Performance
Ease of installation

Cons: One failed after 8 months of usage

Other Thoughts: I don't want to trash the entire product for one of the sticks failing on me, but it is kind of a bummer. While i had 2 running, they both out performed anything i could throw at them. i used them to play CoD, Battlefield, and Source engine games with no hiccups at all.

5 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: Ran these since 3/2009 at the standard 800mhz 5-5-5-18 2T they post at. Messed around with them from time to time, but never spent good time perfecting them. After some tweaking, im running 1067mhz @5-5-5-15 2.12v

I wouldnt be shocked to see them go higher, as I will be trying soon.

Cons: Without manual voltage settings, these will run at 800mhz.

These chips are actually just REALLY NICE 800mhz chips, but with EPP you can run them at the advertised setting.

The 40mm fans are redamndiculously terrible!!! Noisy, weak, cheap and very unnecessary, as the chips run cool.

Other Thoughts: Dont be fooled though, these chips will oc past 1066mhz.

(w or w/o the fans)
