1 out of 5 eggsI No Longer Trust Corsair RAM

This review is from: CORSAIR Vengeance Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 Desktop Memory Model CMY16GX3M2A1866C9R (Red)

Pros: It looks pretty. lol

Cons: At this point, I'm switching brands... because I've had 3 experiences with 3 separate boxes of Corsair RAM, and all 3 experiences have been bad!

I am on my second box of Vengeance Pro 16GB RAM (which is actually up for an award. Hah. What a joke). This RAM tested bad out of the box. I ran MemTest86 on it, and 1 stick had 44 errors. I returned that box of RAM to NewEgg, got the replacement box (yesterday), ran MemTest86 on it, and 1 stick had 4 errors on it. (For those that do not know, NO errors are acceptable. This RAM should have 0 errors.)

And while this is going on - trying to get new Corsair RAM that is not fraught with errors - I'm in the process of returning my old Corsair Vengeance RAM to the Corsair company [because it is still under warranty (thank goodness)]. 1 stick has 4 errors, as diagnosed by MemTest86. My PC was getting BSODs, which is how I discovered the flawed RAM, which started all this buying and testing of RAM... which is turning out to be a long irritating road.

"Strike three, Corsair! You're out!"

Other Thoughts: NewEgg has great Customer Service! However, when shipping small items, their packaging sucks. "You need to work on that, NewEgg."

Corsair has a 3 Year Warranty on their RAM, and their Customer Service (website) is great. It was very easy to have an RMA issued. "Thank you for that small miracle, Corsair."

5 out of 5 eggsFirst Time Corsair Purchase

This review is from: CORSAIR Vengeance Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 Desktop Memory Model CMY16GX3M2A1866C9R (Red)

Pros: Does exactly as advertised.

1. Easy setup in BIOS. - As many others state - it will read 1333 when first plugged in - just enable XMP in BIOS and Bingo - my ASUS board did the rest and Auto set the timings and set to 1866.
2. Works and fits on ATX mobo even with large CPU cooler (I use with GAMMAX400 and plenty of room)
3. Price - I got a good price of these sticks and glad I read all the reviews to get me to try this over G-Skill

Cons: Top Red portion of "cap" to the RAM can easily be taken off (as in by accident) if touched the right way when inserting. I do not know if this in intentional or not, but it does not really affect the height of these sticks, so not sure why they would do this - in case you wanted to change the colors?

Not taking off an Egg for this

Other Thoughts: I will definitely consider Corsair for my next build. Solid sticks so far and I am a long time G-Skill and Kingston user

5 out of 5 eggsCORSAIR Vengeance Pro 16GB

This review is from: CORSAIR Vengeance Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 Desktop Memory Model CMY16GX3M2A1866C9R (Red)

Pros: Although I haven't had much time to use these yet, they look and feel great.

Cons: None thus far.

Other Thoughts: Im using a MSI Gaming 7 Z97A motherboard and I noticed that they are only putting out 1333mhz instead of the 1866 (atleast I think it was 1333). Ive also read that this is 100% normal and I just need to tweak the settings in the bios to allow for the full 1866 mhz.

4 out of 5 eggsEasy install

This review is from: CORSAIR Vengeance Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 Desktop Memory Model CMY16GX3M2A1866C9R (Red)

Pros: These are well designed aesthetically and functionally. They match my red ASUS Maximus Hero motherboard and although bulky, are slim enough for fat-fingered techs to easily seat them in the DIMM slots.

Cons: None observed

5 out of 5 eggsHuge Heat Spreaders

This review is from: CORSAIR Vengeance Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 Desktop Memory Model CMY16GX3M2A1866C9R (Red)

Pros: These are the most sleek looking Corsair ram models available (Dominators aside). The aluminum heat spreaders cover the entire DIMM chips giving them a shape finish. They have very low CAS latency amongst other brands in the 1866MHz range and low timings. Spreaders come in four colors, gold, silver, red and blue. I own two silver and two red (4x8gb). Just need a blue and I can represent for America. I’ve had them over year in my rig with no problems.

Cons: Not much of con for me anymore but a warning for others. Be aware that these are tall heat spreaders. Be cognoscente of the shape of your CPU cooler’s clearance over the ram. I failed to fit an oversized air cooler over these. I currently have these in an ATX mid tower with a 240mm rad mounted up top. I have to run it in pull only because the push/pull would not clear the ram (that’s more of a con with my case).

Other Thoughts: Out of box they are clocked at 1333MHz. You have to go into BIOS and increase the voltage or set it to 1866MHz.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent choice for Asus Z-97 Motherboards

This review is from: CORSAIR Vengeance Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 Desktop Memory Model CMY16GX3M2A1866C9R (Red)

Pros: Easy to install, nice looking (red). Great customer e-mail support. I had a problem with the memory only running at 1800 MHz instead of 1866 mhz. The problem was on my end and a misunderstanding of Bios settings. Tech support was really helpful.

Cons: No Cons

Other Thoughts: Take time to read about the type of Memory you buy and be sure to match compatibility to your motherboard and not to the CPU. Corsair has a compatibility program you can run to fit the right memory. Be aware that you should buy Kits of memory ie 8 gb 16 gb 32 gb .
