5 out of 5 eggsFast

Pros: Works great in HP Envy m6. AMD A10 4600M. Laptop is just now a year old. Bought ram soon after. I have AMD overdrive installed so I can watch the ram adjusts on demand from below 1600MHz to above 2000MHz. While gaming I have seen speeds around 2100MHz. I have always had great luck with Corsair ram I have some sticks that have been going for 10 years. If these don't work for you its probably your machine not the ram.

Cons: None.

2 out of 5 eggsMaybe they work maybe they won't

Pros: supposed to be fast.

Cons: for me, high failure rate, expensive, really bad rma service

Other Thoughts: I bought 2 kits of these from Newegg, For some reason my Dell Alienware M18 reports the memory running at 1777 mhz no matter what I do to overclock it, yet Cpu-z reports it running at 931mhz. After 3 months of use 1 of the sicks failed causing infinite random blue screens in Win 8, I Rma the kit, which was easy to do on the Corsair page but that's as good as it gets. 2 days after they receive my memory I finally get a ups tracking #. Now more than a day later, the tracking number only shows the ol 'label created only' info. waiting to receive package from sender. Lovely. Then to top it off, they are sending it ups ground which takes a buzillion days to get to me. So to sum it up, 1 of 2 kits failed, Service stinks bad. I used to love Corsair stuff, now I am reconsidering my love affair.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect as expected from Corsair!

Pros: Worked right out of the box without any tweaking in an Alienware M18x R2. Run at advertised speeds @932 per channel. Was a truly pop in, and forget upgrade.

Cons: The sticker on the ram is a bit cheesy and Corsair honestly could do without it. If they really wanted to make flashly ram they could use a true heatsink like Kingston did on some of their Hyper X ram

5 out of 5 eggsMore Fire

Pros: Fast. I have this running in my envy 17 3200 i7 ivy bridge. No problems as yet ran a clean restore with no issues ran some memory tests and so far so good.

Cons: I had the pair of the 8gb and they didn't runfor me and I tried these and bam! So sometimes some bad one may go out but for the most part they are good quality. The only thing is that in some programs it shows as unknown manufacture but it still runs at 1867 mhz so its all good!

Other Thoughts: My laptop is skating on ice____________ burrrr!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat memory, extremely fast.

Pros: Very very fast. No bad sticks yet. I run these in a HPC cluster where speed is of importance, almost as important as size (see Cons).

Cons: Wish it came in a 2 x 16GB kit.

What happened to heat spreaders? I like heat spreaders for two reasons. First, it keeps the memory cooler (see other thoughts for explanation). Secondly, they keep dust off the memory. Most machines this isn't a problem. However, working on numerous different types of computers from different environments as a computer tech, I like to ensure the longevity of the parts I'm servicing.

Other Thoughts: This memory is 1866MHz. For those who are only getting 1600MHz from it, it might be a limitation of either your CPU or Motherboard. Do your research before buying. If your motherboard doesn't support XMP memory profiles, don't buy it. If you can't change your FSB in your BIOS, EFI or UEFI, don't buy it. If your processor's built-in memory controller only supports 1600MHz and less, don't buy it. All i3, i5, and i7 third generation (Ivy Bridge) and earlier are 1600Mhz or less. All current AMD processors (Bulldozer aka Trinity) and earlier are 1333MHz or less.

What does this mean? Hold off on purchasing this unless you absolutely know you can use it. This product is intended for future compatibility as well as bleeding edge adopters who are running the "CORRECT" hardware to maximize it. Most consumers are better off buying a lower speed, lower latency memory for less money.

Side note for those who are complaining about the 1600MHz FSB. Have you checked your latency vs spec? I bet you will find out that you are running at 1600MHz but less than 10 latency. It's one of the perks of running faster memory in a slower FSB. Another perk is temperature. Underclocked memory runs cooler; therefore will extend the life of the memory and possibly the life of the computer/laptop you have installed it in.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks in 13" 2012 MacBook Pro

Pros: This memory runs roughly as specified (I show an average of 931.3 MHz doubled to 1862.6) in Windows 8, OS X 10.7 and 10.8. Pop it in and go. Works particularly well for me, given as its the memory for my Intel 4000 HD.

Cons: If the latencies could be lower...but that's the cost with higher speed ram. Its faster overall, though.

CPU-Z SPD tab shows max speed at 889 MHz which makes me sad since I'd at least expect it to match the JEDEC#3 since that's the speed its supposed to be rated, tested, and running at.

Other Thoughts: CPU-Z SPD tab shows max speed at 889 MHz which makes me sad. Still notably faster if not noticably faster than the 800 MHz we would normally be doubling.

1 out of 5 eggsWill not run at 1866

Pros: Seemed stable at 1600.

Cons: Would not run at 1866 MHz. Costs twice the price of 1600... It's set to use a non-optimal timings table by default. Or, it really cannot run at 1866.

Other Thoughts: My laptop's bios does not permit me to manually adjust the dram freq, or the FSB:dram ratio. So I was unable to manually set it to 1866 to see if it really does work. This could point to my laptop as the culprit, but I don't think so since it's running ram from kingston at ~1860 just fine...

Bottom line is if you cannot manually set your dram freq and ratio, this ram will likely be stuck at 1600 or something less than 1866 (other reviews here on newegg report 1700 somethin). Only the first reviewer here on newegg reports that it is fully functional at 1866 - AFTER he manually configured his bios to run it at full speed.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks in Dell M6700 so far

Pros: I installed this memory in a Dell M6700's primary bay (under the keyboard) leaving room for another 16GB in the secondary bay.

The Dell A06 BIOS recognized it right away. OEM memory tests passed 100%. Speed is faster and CAS latency is lower than Dell's stock 1600MHz memory (10 versus 11).

Win7-64 WEI for Memory went from 5.9 to 7.9.

Memory bandwidth went from 18GB/s to 23.7GB/s.

Much cheaper than Dell's offerings. Dell wants $200-$300 OVER the stock memory price for 16(4x4)GB of 1866MHz memory leaving no room for expansion to 32GB.

5 Eggs so far.

Cons: None so far. Longevity TBD.

Other Thoughts: CPU-Z 1.62.0 and Sandra Lite shows it as PC3-14200 instead of PC3-15000 for some reason.

Cons: In the ($129.99) 1866 vengince ram features entry, it clearly state it runs at 1600MHZ so how fast is the ($89.99) 1600 vengeance ram

Other Thoughts: Description of products so similar need to be checked for consistency, im left wondering what speed of the CMSX16GX3M2A1600C10 (no MHZ speed listed in features) is if the CMSX16GX3M2A1866C10 is 1600MHZ in the features area of the discription.

If the descriptions get cleared up about weather this is 1866MHZ ram or just a timing adjusted version of the 1600MHZ vengeance ram, (ill set the timing myself if this is the case...) I will be adding 32GB and win 7 ultimate to my Asus g75...just after christmas.

CMSX16GX3M2A1866C10 = CMSX16GX3M2A1600C10 This would mean great things to overclockers.

1 out of 5 eggsSome What False Advertising

Pros: 16GB RAM. Somewhat fast.

Cons: labeled as 1866 ram but is only 1600. makes no sense. i purchased this with the thinking it was 1866 as labeled in the title of the product, but come to find out its only 1600 and not 1866 like i thought.

Other Thoughts: very disappointed.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

From what it seems like, your platform does not support 1866 speeds. Please use the Corsair Memory Finder function on the Corsair website to find the appropriate memory kit for your system.

Thank you,
Corsair Customer Support
