5 out of 5 eggsEverything I wanted

Pros: This is really good overclockable RAM. Considering the price difference is so small, there's no good reason to get 1333 AT ALL, and 1866 is just a little bit better than 1600.

Cons: You need to make sure your BIOS is running it as 1866. Mine defaults it at 1600 unless I tell it otherwise.

Other Thoughts: Remember, you can access the RAM you have faster if you have more sticks. When I was a novice, I thought it better to get two 4GB sticks than four 2GB sticks because I could upgrade my RAM latter by just buying two more 4GB sticks rather than replacing all of them. But if you have 4 slots, you want to fill them all. The total amount of space only matters if you try to use too much at once. For anything under that, speed has to do with how fast you're accessing that RAM. 1333 MHz is way slower than 1866MHz (obviously), but having four sticks is kinda like the RAM equivalent to a quad-core processor instead of a dual-core (sorta). Anyway, the point is you ought to fill out all your slots if you want to do things quickly.

2 out of 5 eggsFast when it works

Pros: Fast when it works

Cons: Fail after a year of usage.
Stock clock 1333 instead of 1886 as advertised.

Other Thoughts: After owning this ram for little over a year I finally able to say that this set of memory stick doesn't delivery, on an average it crash my system every 2 months (BSoD), and till recently my motherboard just complete give up booting my PC. That being said, I swapped out the Ram from the PC i built for my mom, my system boot up fine. I have the latest bio for my Sabertooth Z77 motherboard, and I tested every component,

3 out of 5 eggsWon't go to advertised clock speed

Pros: Nice pair. Run Nice

Cons: Obviously, from what most of you guys have read, the sticks ship stock as 1333. The issue I am having is whenever I try to OC the RAM up to the 1866, my computer crashs before hitting bios. I've tried using the XMP profiles, I tried manually entering all of the timings, I tried changing the voltage up to 1.65, I tried everything. So for right now it is stuck at 1333 even though I paid for the 1866 speed.

Other Thoughts: Build:

Motherboard: BioStar Z87x 3D
CPU: Intel i5 4670k 3.4ghz quad-core
Hard Drive: Samsung 840 Pro Series 256GB SSD
Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX770 WindForce
PSU: ThermalTake TR2 500w

2 out of 5 eggsBad module

Pros: Works

Cons: Too many sticks from Corsair have bad memory blocks. The sticks have lifetime warranty, but the customer service website is buggy to the point of being unusable and they don't have 24/7 customer support over the phone. Just know you are part of the quality control team.

Other Thoughts: I have a 4GB pair (8GB) that has worked great for years. Just don't for get to mem86 your sticks as soon as you install them.

5 out of 5 eggsFast!

Pros: Fast and easy and reliable

Cons: Comes clocked at 1333mhz

Other Thoughts: Ok so the reason they deliver it to you clocked at 1333 is that win 7, vista, and xp os will not install with any other frequencies. As to why-no idea. The company was smart delivering this to the user with in mind that you would be installing a new os too. So just go into your bios and change it back to 1866

5 out of 5 eggsDa bomb

Pros: Rock solid. Will stand slight increases in mem clock speed when overclocking system (tinkering with FSB and memclock ratio). But most importantly...FAST!!

Cons: Bit expensive. Heatsinks are large and may interfere with your CPU cooler.

Other Thoughts: If your motherboard doesn't automatically set the memory at 1866MHz 9-10-9-27 timings, pay your BIOS a visit and select the appropriate XMP profile.
