5 out of 5 eggsMakes my A8 APU scream

Pros: running it at 2133mhz and happy. also had my latencies quite a bit tighter than the XMP 2133mhz presets at one point. I dont remember the specifics though.
1.5v, better for the environment.

Cons: Big heatsinks which are pretty annoying. Im bored of the look of these; now im into the low profile, classy looking ones.

Other Thoughts: not the cheapest and probably not the best, but not a bad buy by any means.

4 out of 5 eggsGood enough

Pros: Stable at 1866MHz, 9-9-9-24-1T

Cons: Not stable at 2133MHz, 11-11-11-27

Other Thoughts: The lower clock with tighter timings is good enough for me (bought it on sale, so for the money at those speeds it was still a good buy).

5 out of 5 eggsRuns great on Vishera

Pros: After finding out they were running in single channel (D'oh), these sticks run like a champ at the rated timings.

Cons: Just make sure you have them in the right slots on your board, they refused to go anywhere above 1600 mhz when in single-channel mode

Other Thoughts: Running these on a ga-990fxa-ud5 with an FX-8320 processor.

5 out of 5 eggsAMAZING RAM!!!

Pros: It looks good and is very stable at 2133mhz (i have no clue what the people who say its not are talking about) but mine has ran at 2133 since it was installed in my ivy bridge rig. it doesn't really ever get warm and I have to really try to use a ram intensive if i want to even get above 75 percent usage

Cons: none, although I was originally worried that 8gb wouldn't be enough for video editing and what not but it works really well!

Other Thoughts: 8gb will most likely be enough especially at 2133. I might get another kit just to have the badassery of 16gb in my case.

2 out of 5 eggsAddendum to earlier review

Pros: See earlier review

Cons: I just wanted to add to my review that this morning my computer froze and I got "Overclocking failed!" on the RAM. Again. The RAM was only running at 1600 this time, which Corsair said should be fine on my setup.

So I decided to dial it down to 1333. Seriously? I paid for 2133 and I get 1333. That's awesome.

Other Thoughts: After working with Corsair for about an hour, we decided to do an RMA with them, where they will send us quad-channel RAM that's supposed to actually work at 2133 and then we send the old RAM back.

The agent said that there was nothing wrong with the RAM, but that it was a configuration issue. I'm sorry, but if 2133 RAM can only run at 1333...that's a problem with the RAM.

At any rate, Corsair is supposed to be sending us RAM that actually works with our setup (we are paying for the difference in price though). Shame we had to go through all this hassle to get stable RAM, though.

2 out of 5 eggsWant to run it at 2133? Forget it!

Pros: They look cool.

Cons: They absolutely REFUSE to stay stable overclocked at 2133 on an ASUS P7P55D LE motherboard with a Core i7 3930K processor. They don't even stay stable at 1866. We have two machines built with the same hardware, and they are both having the same problem: random reboots, "Overclocking failed!" in the BIOS (even at 1866 which isn't an overclock on the board), all that good stuff.

I called Corsair support about it and they told me that it was because I was using "too many memory modules". So apparently, a board that's designed to handle 8 DIMMs of 64GB RAM at 2400 can't handle 8 DIMMs of 32GB RAM at 1866. That makes total sense, right? (Sarcasm, in case you can't tell.)

I'm still on the phone with Corsair and I miiight be able to trade them for quad-channel modules...but I don't have my hopes up. If you want an X79 board, look to another module; this one is just too unstable.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Works great. Running at 2133.

Cons: Had to enter BIOS to manually bump them from 1866 to 2133 but that's not really even a hassle.

2 out of 5 eggsDoesn't run full speed on my setup

Pros: Runs @ 1600 stable and well
Looks pretty nice in case

Cons: Does not run @ 2133 with the latest BIOS and XMP Profile on a ASRock Z77 Motherboard. Crashes to blue screen when on the profile. Have to switch it down to 1600 to get it stable on the board.

Other Thoughts: It didn't cost much more or any more than the 1600 version so it wasn't a big deal, but with my setup it didn't work @ 2133. It was disappointing.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible Stability at 2133 v1.5 on X79 if wanting to OC

Pros: Name Brand Memory. Warranty perhaps. Color scheme matches my Asus X79 Workstation Board.

Cons: Tried this memory both on an ASRock x79 Fatality Pro board and my now current board, the Asus x79 Workstation. Absolutely will not run stable at 1.5v at it's rated speed if you want to overclock in the slightest. Forget about doing that. Board however does run extremely stable if you increase the voltage to 1.65v and lower the speed of the memory. Was actually surprised that Corsair would pull this kinda stunt on it's customers. There is an actual blog on Corsair that tells you to increase the voltage for stability. I also found that very surprising as well. Best to avoid this memory and seek out something else if you wanting stability and performance ( overclocking ) in a turn-key out of the package solution.

Other Thoughts: In my quest to find out why this memory would not work in an overclock setting at it's rated speed at 1.5v I ended up educating myself about memory in a very in-depth way. Apparently, there is very little to gain in real world numbers by running memory, any memory above 1600mhz on the Intel Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge due to the chips on-die memory controller. Anyone out there can research this themselves. Don't just take my word for it. You will soon discover that buying just normal DDR3 1600mhz memory @ 9-9-9-24 will give you the same exact result performance wise as the more expensive so-called 2133 / 2400 memory companies try and sell you. Educate yourself and save money.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We're deeply sorry to hear about your experience with this memory kit. Unfortunately the CMZ8GX3M2A2133C11B kit is not tested on Socket 2011 motherboards which is why you may be having issues. You may want to go with one of our Quad Channel memory kits such as CMZ16GX3M4A2133C11B. Please make sure you have the latest bios update and load the XMP profile in the bios. If you continue to have issues with the memory, please contact our Customer Service Department at 888-222-4346 and we'd be more than happy to replace it for you.

Thank you,
Corsair Customer Support
