4 out of 5 eggsDecent RAM

Pros: Ran very well for 4+ years. Set it and forget it. I'm not overclocking, this is my primary desktop.

Cons: Motherboard only reads 4 GB now... One of the chips is dead, I've tested other RAM on the motherboard and it will read that.

Other Thoughts: I guess I can't really complain as I've ran this RAM hard for years and am upgrading my primary system soon anyways. I'd say I got my moneys worth... but it would be nice if it still worked.

5 out of 5 eggsLasted me 6 years

Pros: I have P6TD Asus Motherboard that requires Triple memory to run at best specs. This Set has lasted me 6 years!!, so durable yes.
I am a hardcore gamer ( loves MMO RPG Generes), and 1gb Graphics card. Be sure to look up your motherboard types and be sure it fits YOUR needs. DIMM SDRAM needs little maintenance. I have had some power outages. My hard drive craped out before my Ram.

Cons: Cons? nothing last forever? had them for 6 years now. Had 2 KO with in 2 months of each other (hens triple memory), HZ? the power resistance for each is required to maintain stability for system. So understand, one goes out..others right behind if you dont replace soon.

Other Thoughts: Other thoughts? Cheap? durable? cost effective? absolutely!! good buy.

3 out of 5 eggsNot 1600 MHZ

Pros: At least it does work although not as advertised. I did buy Corsair 6 GB( 3 x 2 gb) 1600 MHZ about 2 years ago and it worked fine.

Cons: Will not run at 1600 MHZ --I tried many combinations of timing and profiles on my ASUS Rampage 3 Formula MB but could only get this memory to run at 1333 MHZ. .
I'll just run it at 1333 MHZ because I don't want to go through the pain of returning it.

Other Thoughts: Will not buy Corsair memory in the future.

4 out of 5 eggsGood but...

Pros: Fast ram, small footprint, stays cool.

Cons: Had the ram about 2 years then got random BSODs. Memtest86 tells me on stick of ram has 255 errors and another 30. 2/3 sticks on their way out.

2 out of 5 eggsFailing Quality

Pros: Used to have good quality. Installed one set for 2 1/2 years with no problem.

Cons: Ordered another set to double the memory of the old system. Had to return the first order because memtest was returning over 30 errors. Newegg sent me another set and memtest returned with zero error at first. One week later and system started to crash. Ran memtest again and it's now showing 1 error.

Other Thoughts: Threw out the plastic box by accident and have to go through corsair rma system. Hopefully the corsair will send me better quality ones.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: I bought this 3x2 pack for my machine just shy of three years ago. Set it to 1600mhz and forget it. Runs fantastic. Not that I need it, but I'm entertaining the idea of buying another 3x2 pack since this worked out so well.

Cons: None.

Pros: Great RAM. I've had this running in a machine for 4 years now with no flaws or failures. For the price it's at now, it's just a steal.

Cons: First order came DOA, sent it back and got a new set in no time.

1 out of 5 eggsSwitched my ram latency? CORSAIR FAIL

Pros: I had this set 3x2gb for almost 2 years in my i7 920 system. I could tweak it to 8-8-8-20 1t. overclocked 9-9-9-24-1t up to 1760mhz on 1.675v

Cons: I bought another set recently. I cannot get 8-8-8-20 1t or 2t. I figured, maybe because Im using more sticks. WRONG.

In cpu-z and other software, the default clock speeds are DIFFERENT.

older ram sticks profiled 9-9-9-24 2t @1600mhz
new sticks profile 10-9-9-24 2t @1600mhz

You gave me slower ram corsair. This isnt the same quality I bought 1 1/2 years ago. Shame on you for switching out junk. I shoulda bought another brand or model at 9-9-9-24 if I knew you were lying about your timings. BOOOooooO!!!!

Other Thoughts: sticking with gskill and ocz like I knew I should have.

5 out of 5 eggsCorsair Prevails.

Pros: Nice stable and reliable RAM. All sticks passed over 3 hours of Memtest86+ v4.2 with no errors, what-so-ever.

System posted quickly and booted up with no problems. All I had to do was go into BIOS and set voltage to 1.65v (recommended voltage), and set the speed to 1600 MHz.

Cons: None at all.

Other Thoughts: I do NOT see a need to overclock this ram.
