2 out of 5 eggsOne stick out of two defect on arrival

Pros: Super look, nice lighting, looks like good memory from the stick that worked.

Cons: Having one faulty RAM on a package at that price is unacceptable. I had issues installing Windows and wondered why. Removing the faulty RAM, I was able to install Windows flawlessly. I tried to run mdsched in Windows 8.1 and it found an issue in the first 10 seconds of the test with the faulty stick in.

Also, I felt like in the presentation of the product the light was customizable from the software side, or something included in the package. It is NOT. You need to buy a little accessory kit in order to have that functionnality. They also show red in the video and it does not even exist.

Other Thoughts: I am very disappointed that this product didn't deliver. I expected something better from Corsair. I am not even asking for a replacement, it will be a return and I'm going back to GSkills.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Replacement Policy

Pros: 2 years ago I built a new rig that included this ram from Corsair. 4 days ago I started getting BSOD. Testing pointed to memory. Sure enough 1 of the 2 8g chips was bad. Newegg put me intouch with Corsair. 3 days later I have new memory sloted and operational and my only cost was the return shipping of original memory sticks. Amazing service!!

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome.

Pros: Worked great right out of the box. Set XMP in bios no problems. Looks great.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If you are using a corsair 600t case with a corsair H100i cooling system you have move radiator towards the side panel a little to clear the light bar on the memory stick.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: It's DDR3 RAM, PC3 12800, CL9, and it works as it should. It has high profile heatsinks for heat dissipation.

Cons: For me... the light bars.
I chose these because they were the only model of 2 x 8Gb DDR3 1600 CL9 RAM I could find on the ASUS Z87-Pro compatibility list, so they were my only logical choice. Since my PC runs at night and is in my room, I wanted a PC without LEDs... But now that RAM sticks have also gone into the "Christmas tree" business, I'm stuck with a night light in my room. I could probably remove them, but I don't really want to tinker with them.
Not enough to remove an egg, it's still really good RAM

Other Thoughts: CORSAIR should add a note to remove the plastic foil over the logos on the sticks, mine were kind of hard to notice and if I hadn't watched the Newegg video beforehand, probably would've kept them on...

5 out of 5 eggsSweet

Pros: Passed any and all memory tests I've thrown at it with flying colours. Can be overclocked, though I don't bother.

Cons: Top bar can get in the way of some CPU Coolers, but that is obvious when ordering any RAM with them. If you think they will get in the way, order low profile RAM instead.

Other Thoughts: This is some high quality RAM. Quite happy with it. Looks good too.

5 out of 5 eggsPretty

Pros: Looks really nice

Cons: price

Other Thoughts: I was a bit concerned with the LED that they had in them (really???) but i was pleasantly surprised by it. It wasnt an obnoxious neon color like pink or blue, but just LED "whitish blue" i guess is the best way to describe it Actually looked really cool with the case which used the same color LED fans.
