5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: I have had this memory in use for a little over a year now and I cannot find any faults with it. Great value and delivers as advertised.

Cons: I cannot think of any other than the cost slowly creeps up.

4 out of 5 eggsGood product needs better factory Quality Assurance testing

Pros: * Very good speed
* Operates at advertised specifications
* 3 year limited warranty

Cons: Thorough testing revealed 1 module as defective.

* I tested the memory using Memtest86+ V4.20. At 40 hours, 0 minutes, and 29 seconds into the test on Pass 11, Test #8, the memory at address location 0x002ac085ea8 was revealed to be defective. The pattern written to memory was 0x6c767910, but was read back in error as 0x6c766910 with error bits reported as 00001000; proving the memory was indeed defective.
* The configuration parameters for the memory speed and timing during the test were consistent with the memory's advertised specifications of DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800), timing 9-9-9-24, CAS Latency 9, voltage 1.5V.
* Assembly and testing were conducted at a proper, validated, industrial-grade anti-static workstation using my 20+ years as a professional Electronics Engineer.

Other Thoughts: Newegg RMA'd the defective set and sent a new box. The new modules were tested with using Memtest86+ V4.2 for 120 hours (5 days) and no defect was detected.

The lesson to be learned here is: if your computer's reliability matters to you, thoroughly test every component in the system before accepting it as "good" - especially the memory.

Even very small defects in memory can lead to very time consuming, extremely frustrating problems that may not be immediately noticeable. Worse yet, small memory defects can create problems that SEEM intermittent, and are very difficult to route out the root cause without very thorough system-wide testing. These problems can include system instability, incorrect program operation, corrupted files, and more.

These memory modules were installed and tested in a MSI 990FXA-GD80V2 motherboard.

5 out of 5 eggsNo problems

Pros: - Works as expected for RAM
- Easy to install

Cons: - None

Other Thoughts: This is nice, low profile memory for your motherboard. While it doesn't have the crazy heat sinks some RAM has, it is encased in it's own metal heatsinks, which you can't tell from the pictures too well.

5 out of 5 eggsCorsair is quality.

Pros: I've been buying Corsair RAM for a long time now & have yet to receive a new stick that was DOA. These were no exception. Timings and speed are as advertised. Your motherboard may default it to 1333MHz but that's not the RAMs fault.

Low profile so pretty much any cooler will fit over these.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsFast, easy to install, love them!

Pros: I purchased the low profile version of RAM to ensure that the CPU cooler I was interested in would fit. The RAM shipped quickly, and were very easy to install. Corsair is known for their high quality RAM and so far so good!

Cons: So far none

Other Thoughts: Depending on the motherboard you have, the default frequency is 1333 Mhz and you will have to change it to the 1600 Mhz, either manually, or by enabling XMP profile.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy Set Up

Pros: I'm not a pro, but I have installed RAM before. I found this RAM was easy to install. My mother board picked these up right away as all advertised timings no problems. I ran a hardware and memory diagnostics with no errors. I have always bought Corsair RAM because I have never had issues in long term reliability of Corsair. I've only had to replace it when I wanted to upgrade it.

Cons: I wouldnt mind having different colors available. Green would be nice!

Other Thoughts: I like that there are no weird spikes or crazy graphics on these.

5 out of 5 eggsSeamless install

Pros: I always buy corsair RAM as I have just had good luck with it and like to stick with what I know. I like this ram because it has good timings even at 1600 and when I installed it my UEFI bios picked it up right away as the timings advertised. I ran a diagnostics and mem test and had absolutely no errors. I also like the way they look, the ones with the spikes do not appeal to me. I felt that the price was reasonable for what I got and am very pleased to own these.

Cons: Needs more people to review them.

Other Thoughts: I can understand that some RAM is dead on arrival, I was lucky that I had no issues but if you have an issue this RAM is worth replacing, I really enjoyed the easy setup and have had no issues with reliability so far, or with previous Corsair purchases.

2 out of 5 eggsAvoid this! Not as advertised!

Pros: Low profile (read: standard size DIMM)

Cons: As the other review states, crashes with stop code 0x50 (unstable memory timings/frequency) running prime95 at the advertised 1600 MHz. Further, this memory reports to the BIOS that it is only rated for 1333 MHz.

I will not buy from Corsair in the future unless they make this right, and you should certainly avoid this memory.

Other Thoughts: You have been warned!

Pros: Fast, installed easy and performs as expected. Returned another memory manufactuer after windows marked about 8 gigs as system reserved then failed memtest . Ive used corsair on every build for over 10 years. Dont know why I went with another manufactuer. Wont happen again even if the black friday sale is as big as it was on the returned manufactuer memory

Cons: none at all
