5 out of 5 eggsGreat Memory!!

Pros: Great speed, looks great with the black heat spreaders, not as tall as some other memory with heat spreaders.

Cons: Didn't knock anything off for this, but you can purchase 3x4GB sticks cheaper than 6x2gb. Same amount of memory, and $20 cheaper. Kind of a no brainer. But, if you make the same mistake I did, or just want to fill up those 6 slots and only have 12GB of memory, this will work great.

Other Thoughts: Like I said, this is great memory. I just wish I would have found the larger sticks before dropping the hammer on these.

5 out of 5 eggsGreatness!!!

Pros: I've had these for a bit over a year and their performance has never let me down. I've actually tried to max them out and still have not been able to. I'm talking 50ish+ browsers open, 2 videos going, 2 games, video/photo editing and video rendering/conversion and only got them to 40ish% usage. Great bang for your buck!

Cons: Haven't run into any at all.

Other Thoughts: If you don't ever wanna have to worry about needing more RAM scoop this up, they won't let you down! Great job again Corsair, you da best mayne... you deed eeet!!!

1 out of 5 eggsnot for i-7

Pros: none

Cons: i-7 950 and asuse mb.check prefered venders,cpu would only use 4 sticks,returned.

Manufacturer Response:

Please keep in mind that when using high performance OCing memory, you typically have to make BIOS adjustments for the motherboard to accomodate it. If we can be of assistance in the future, please contact us.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: I am a regular gamer, this is great memory, this ram has served me well, I also have this system integrated with my extensive security system with PTZ video, fully online remote operation and home automation controls for those who don't understand, I can turn my lights off and on and move all of my automatic video cameras from Hawaii. It was a killer deal.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggssweeeeet

Pros: All 12Gbs were recognized by my Sabertooth X58 first time. Quick memory! 12Gbs is definitely good enough for my moderate-slightly heavy load (Ran Crysis2, Oblivion, Arkham Asylum, and AutoCAD Revit (cause i need to work too =]) and was seamlessly alt-tabbing between them).

Cons: 6 sticks, might be a turn off, but i have a corsair memory fan that fits just wonderfully!

Other Thoughts: i7 960 3.2GHz processor to go with all that software usage i mentioned

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: When it works, it works. It's quite speedy and the performance is fine.

Cons: One of the sticks died within 45 days of installation, with the board refusing to boot if that stick was installed, regardless of port. Newegg won't take them back because it's just outside of 30 days, and I'm stuck hoping Corsair would offer an advance RMA, or I'll be stuck without a computer for several weeks thanks to this.

Other Thoughts: Motherboard would not recognize it properly(Intel BOXDX58SO2), though that may be a motherboard issue. Setting to SPD makes the board recognize it fine.
