3 out of 5 eggsIt's RAM.

This review is from: CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B

Pros: It's RAM. Computer recognized it immediately. Fast, I suppose. Timing was easy.

I bought Corsair nearly wherever I could on my build. The RAM was affordable, and it was blue, so why not?

Cons: I'm not sure if it was the chips or my MoBo, but I had to reseat this RAM several times to resolve various issues. Over the past year it's settled out and I've not had any issues with these chips since, but for a while right after I finished building this machine out, I was afraid to power it down because it wouldn't start back up unless I reseated the RAM.

Not just reseat it, but like, reseat it in that 'special' way. It was like messing with my old NES. >.>

Other Thoughts: I'd have preferred more than 8 gigs, but eh. I'm holding out for a DDR4 board before I do another round of updates.

5 out of 5 eggsCan't beat it

This review is from: CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B

Pros: Almost 2 years and still going strong. Fast, good for price. Corsair has never let me down.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Great ram for the price, and any average person won't need any more than 8gb for any game. I've been using these sticks heavily for almost 2 years and have not had any issues, still going as strong as they did from day one.

5 out of 5 eggsAlmost 4 years - no problems

This review is from: CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B

Pros: Had this babies for almost 4 years. Still working without problems with my i7-2600K. What else is there to say?

Cons: Seriously?

Other Thoughts: Some motherboards require you go into BIOS and set XMP mode to get the full speed of the RAM.

4 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B

Pros: Ram is ram, it works!

Cons: Very tall ram. Had to rearrange my case unexpectedly. Make sure you measure everything before buying. If you plan on getting an Evo 212 by Coolermaster, you will need to plan more carefully.

Other Thoughts: Description of product states 1600 speed, but my bios shows 1333.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,

Thank you for the review! In order to get the memory kit to the specified speeds, go into your BIOS and enable XMP profiles. This should load up the correct speed, cas latency, and voltage settings. If you have any further questions you can either submit a support ticket at corsair.force.com or give us a call at 888-222-4346 and we'll be more than happy to answer any concerns you may have.

Thank you,

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product!

This review is from: CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B

Pros: It is good branded memory so you can not make mistake buying it. It provides good cooling to the chips and perform like it should.

Cons: Heat sinks are quite tall so if you are filling all the memory banks and have a large CPU sink, this might be something you would like to check before buying.

Other Thoughts: Overall memory benefits/performances are chipset dependent, so you should buy good quality memory like this one but don't expect miracles as they are related to some other components...

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent memory, great price.

This review is from: CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B

Pros: Run stable, no problems at all so far. Runs great with my Windows 7 64-bit, though I'm not getting *quite* all my ram from it (7.2 gb or something like that, probably just something I did wrong). Still, runs stable and looks great.

Cons: None at all, so far.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for the price

This review is from: CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B

Pros: Easy install, looks stylish. Does what I need it to do at the speed I like.

Cons: Well this memory is supposed to be clocked at 1600 mhz. But for some reason when I checked my bios its actually clocked at 1333 mhz, I dont know what thats about. I can just change it to 1600 mhz but I mean really though!!!

Other Thoughts: my cpu: AMD A10 5800K APU | motherboard: MSI A78M-E45 | So Im not sure why it was clocked at 1333 mhz when I installed it, it did bother me at some point but Im over it lol, it does what i need it to do, and at least I have the option of increasing it to 1600 mhz
