5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good performing, looks nice XMP

Cons: Might be to high for some air cpu cooler/motherboard combos. XMP

Other Thoughts: This is to those having issue running this ram at specified timings:

If you cannot get this ram to run/boot at specified speeds do this. (all within BIOS)

1st load up the XMP profile and write down all the ram timings.

2nd. set or load optimized defaults or plain defaults in your BIOS/UEFI and click save etc.

3rd go back to the ram timings section and manually change the timings to the ones you wrote earlier.

4th Set the ram voltage to the 1.5v (not auto)

After that try booting up to the OS and see if that helps you run the timings correctly. You might have to change boot order and any other settings you wish to change as well in the BIOS.

If that doesn't work sometimes the problem is not the ram sticks but the built in memory controller in your cpu.

Look up adjusting VCCIO voltage. Its normally only adjusted when trying to overclock ram but might help you trying to run at specified timings on a cpu with a weak imc.

Basically follow guides that tell how to overclock ram for your particular motherboard. Technically the default speed on Ivy (and I believe Sandy as well) is 1600mhz. Anything above that is considered an overclock speed even though its normally done through XMP. Sometimes XMP changes other values that make boot fail and your motherboard spits out at you "overclocking failed" even though your not overclocking.

This goes for not only this particular ram but any that run over 1600mhz.

1 out of 5 eggsWhat does it work with?

Pros: heat sinks are awesome and looks pretty.

Cons: refuses to run at any assigned speed and defaults to 1333.

Other Thoughts: Corsair has a terrible support system that it'self today is having technical issues and no other information came with the ram about setting timings, so now i have expensive ram stuck in limp home mode, THNX. don't bother posting a "we're sorry please reply to this link at" because that flow chart of a help desk does not work.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We're sorry for the inconvenience and also for the troubles you're having running your system at the stated speeds. But to clarify, most motherboards will default to 1333MHz for memory speed unless it was set to load X.M.P. automatically.

Without knowing which motherboard you're currently using, it is difficult to determine what the issue is. Although we can suggest that you check the compatibility on the Corsair Memory Finder, just fill in the appropriate fields and it'll show you which memory kits will work on which motherboards. You may also want to check to see if your BIOS version is updated, if it isn't you should update it. Also you should go into your BIOS and make sure that the X.M.P. profile is enabled. If you've done all of that and continue to have issues, you should contact our Tech Support at 800-205-7657 or if you prefer you may post on the Corsair Forum and there are plenty of people who can help you there.

Thank you,
Corsair Customer Support

3 out of 5 eggsNot as listed

Pros: X.M.P. ready

Cons: X.M.P. dose not match listed specs. Timings here are 11-11-11-27, X.M.P. gives 11-11-11-30. Not a huge deal, but buyers should know.
Can't get the system to boot to X.M.P. values. I either have to under clock it to 2000, or push the voltage up to get to a stable boot. Since I am anyways I don't see it as a total loss.

Other Thoughts: I haven't tried switching the dimms around yet to see if that stabilizes things. Unlikely to help, but you never know.

5 out of 5 eggsFast and great price!

Pros: Quad-channel kit, stock voltages for rated speed, blue color

Cons: Make sure you get the right i7 to support these bad boys. I have the i7 3820 for now and my Asus can only get them to 1922 for now.

I've been waiting for the Ivy Bridge CPUs, but wanted to make sure my board and RAM worked so I got the bottom barrel LGA2011 cpu.

Other Thoughts: Like I said in the cons, get the right CPU for the RAM!
