5 out of 5 eggsRegular old ram with pretty blue heatsinks

Pros: No issues at all. The blue heatsinks are just for show and won't give you no performance increases at all

Cons: None that I can say. They are still going strong after 3 years

Other Thoughts: If you decide to get a Coolmaster Evo heat sink for your processor, don't get these chips due to how high they are. I actually had to remove the heatsink from the memory chip to fit the processor heatsink/fan onto the motherboard. On my AMD 3 board, the 4 slots seem to be just a little too close to the processor. FYI

3 out of 5 eggsDecent Memory but issues

Pros: Memory ran great for over 1 year. Life time warranty! Runs today with just 2 sticks (8GB) for last year and 1/2 at least!

Cons: For the last two years, I have only been running 8 GB (50%) because a couple of the sticks would always fail after a certain amount of time. You have to return all 4 sticks for warranty claim! So basically, the reason I have not RMA'd these is because I don't want to be down for a week or longer waiting for RMA/exchange with Corsair. So I just purchased some new RAM to replace this RAM and I will then RMA the 16GB kit.

Other Thoughts: I will not buy this memory again. If Corsair had the option to ship replacement memory, then send back the faulty memory, I would of done that. otherwise, unless you have backup memory, what's the point?

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We're sorry for the inconvenience with our memory kit. While we do understand your concerns about swapping only the bad memory sticks, a kit with four modules is always tested together in production to ensure all modules work well together. Some chips are more sensitive to minute changes in some of the timings and memory settings that BIOS sets up upon boot up. If a kit has a mix of chips spread across modules the kit may become unstable - the motherboard may not be able to optimize the best setting for the kit.

With that said, we do offer express RMAs for those who need parts in a hurry. To get a replacement, please submit a ticket for an express RMA at or you may contact us directly at 888-222-4346 and we'll be more than happy to assist you.

Thank you,
Corsair Customer Support

3 out of 5 eggsIts an alright RAM

Pros: Reliable for the first few months to a year. Then it may start to fail. It plays videos and games with no real issues and has a real smooth rate.

Cons: The bad part is after a year I began having problems and getting random BSODs and it was a pain trying to isolate it. In the first few days I ran MemTest 86 and it was coming up with 15000 errors. I isolated the problem to one of the 4 sticks and then bought a single stick to replace it. I now just had the same problem with the single stick. I moved the RAM around when I did replaced them so it is not a faulty or corrupt mobo or DDR socket.
