5 out of 5 eggsReliable memory with no problems to speak of.

This review is from: CORSAIR XMS3 8GB (4 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMX8GX3M4A1600C9

Pros: Works great! No issues. Looks nice. Not much to say really.

Cons: Nothing negative to say at all.

Other Thoughts: This ram has served me well these past years, and I'll be soon retiring the system it's in for a new Skylake based gaming computer. When I bought this memory I erroneously assumed that 4 sticks was somehow better than two. I figured dual, dual channel memory or something. Unless you have quad channel memory, you're better off with two, four gig sticks. Still, I do not regret my purchase, even today.

5 out of 5 eggsPlug N Play

This review is from: CORSAIR XMS3 8GB (4 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMX8GX3M4A1600C9

Pros: All modules worked great right out of the box.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I'm running mine at 1333 mhz due to limitations of the mobo, but when I upgrade will be running at 1600mhz and beyond. But, despite these running at 1333 at 1.5v's they still get just a little warm.

5 out of 5 eggsFlawless on my nVidia 790 SLI

This review is from: CORSAIR XMS3 8GB (4 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMX8GX3M4A1600C9

Pros: great performance
stable
easy installation

Cons: no support for nVidia memory profiles
not as sexy looking as the ones I replaced

Other Thoughts: I was a little weary replacing my 4gb memory with this 8gb value setup, but given the price, I had to give it a chance. My system recognized the memory right away. I did have to manually configure the ram timings and voltage to get 1600mhz (linked/synced).
I'm running the nVidia 790i SLI motherboard with the Intel qx9770 CPU overclocked to 3.8Ghz. The system is 100% stable.

2 out of 5 eggsUnstable

This review is from: CORSAIR XMS3 8GB (4 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMX8GX3M4A1600C9

Pros: It does its job kinda.

Cons: Caused my system to become unstable. Would get random blue screens, citing memory manager, random video driver crashes, random desktop manager crashes. I ran memtest on the ram for periods up to 12-14hrs with no errors. I pulled this ram out and reinstalled the ram I originally had in my machine, errors gone; system is back to normal.

Other Thoughts: System specs:

Gigabyte EP45T-UD3P
Ocz Reaper, 2gb
Sapphire 4870
Corsair FS GT 240gb hdd
Seasonic 650w ps

2 out of 5 eggsUnlucky

This review is from: CORSAIR XMS3 8GB (4 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMX8GX3M4A1600C9

Pros: Good brand name (generally) Good competitive pricing.

Cons: 2 of the 4 DIMMS in this kit tested faulty on memtest. I did not even check the other two. 50% fail rate is reason enough for me to go to another brand.

Other Thoughts: As others have said in previous reviews. You may want to consider passing on this lower end memory and spend a bit more to ensure quality of the product.

Pros: A good name brand PSU for a fair price that feels solid and is pretty quiet.

Cons: 24 pin connector could be a little longer, but for most builds, should be fine.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Quality for Price

This review is from: CORSAIR XMS3 8GB (4 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMX8GX3M4A1600C9

Pros: After almost 2 months of use, I can report no issues with this RAM. No problems during or after installation, and my PC runs a lot smoother after upgrading from 4x1GB to 4x2GB.

Very good purchase for an under-priced item.

Cons: N/A

5 out of 5 eggsas expected for Corsair

This review is from: CORSAIR XMS3 8GB (4 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMX8GX3M4A1600C9

Pros: Works. Cheap. Doesn't look ridiculous.

Cons: Does not create bacon when pressed.

Other Thoughts: Works as quad channel, but you need the right MB and processor to do so. It may also default to 1300 mhz, and needs to be changed in the bios.

Version 8.16, made in Taiwan.
