2 out of 5 eggsStarted failing 6 months later

Pros: Good price when I bought it.

Cons: The PC started crashing 6 months later. I ran Memtest86 on this single stick and had errors popping up within a few seconds. 12 thousand total errors after 2 hours of running the test.

2 out of 5 eggsMake sure your BIOS supports XMP BEFORE you buy!!!

Pros: Decent price

Cons: Even though this module is marketed as being a 1600MHz chip for Intel/AMD systems, you can only get the 1600MHz by enabling XMP in your computers' BIOS. Otherwise it will run at 1333MHz.

The main problem with this is:

1) Nowhere is it stated that it will run at 1333MHz unless you enable XMP.
2) AMD doesn't support XMP, so if you put this in a AMD M/B, you will not get 1600MHz.
3) Intel based computers from HP (and I believe the main Dell line) do not support XMP in their BIOS.

Other Thoughts: The 8GB Kingston chip that came with the system runs at 1600MHz if installed by itself. If I put the Corsair XMS chip in by itself, the BIOS and CPU-Z says it’s running at 1333MHz. Even on Corsair’s website for this part, it is buried in the Tech Specs tab by vaguely listing the SPD Speed as 1333MHz and Performance Profile as XMP. However, a few lines below that, it states the Speed Rating as 1600MHz. Since Intel, on their website, states XMP is overclocking the memory, it should be clearly stated that the chip will run at 1333MHz, with the potential to run at 1600MHz if you have the XMP option. I expect to get the stated speed without having to change BIOS settings, which not everyone has, to “overclock” the memory.

I find this to be very deceitful and effectively a “Bait & Switch” tactic. You don’t see Intel marketing their unlocked i7-4770K processor as a 3.9GHz processor. They correctly state it is a 3.5GHz CPU, because that’s what you get out of the box on ALL systems without overclocking it.

To make things worse, the chip is embedded with the 1600MHz speed, so if you look at the Task Manager tab on Windows 8.1, it will say your memory speed is 1600MHz since Windows is being passed incorrect specs from the memory chip. This will make it appear your memory is running at 1600MHz, NOT 1333MHz. The only real way to verify this is by checking your BIOS or use CPU-Z.

Now I have to dump these chips and spend more money if I want my system to run at 1600MHz. This is the first, and last time I’m buying Corsair. So much for a quality/up-front company.
