4 out of 5 eggsBundle of 2x8BG but one was defective

This review is from: CORSAIR Vengeance Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMY16GX3M2A1600C9R (Red)

Pros: This is a pretty fast memory and it is only 1600, imagine the 2400 or higher. Easy installation on MSI z77 and AsRock z68 motherboards. If using 2 slots, be sure the pair it as the color coding on the motherboard shows. Over 2 years already without any issues. I have 16Gb and no dedicated video card but I have dedicated 4gb for the processors video and even games like UNREAL TOURNAMENT wok perfect on max resolution. One slot of 8GB is more than sufficient for most users, in my opinion.
It is a thicker memory but this is because of the great heat sink which allows nice cooling.
I will recommend this memory because it is the right price and it performs very well. If it was not for the defective one I would give 5 starts probably. But in a such complicated item like memory it is normal to have some faulty ones. Newegg is pretty good in terms of their insurance policy so I buy with confidence from them. It is also only $35 for one 8Gb slot so not a big deal.

Cons: Some people are not aware of the compatibility of their mother board and the RAM and therefore get faulty errors.
One of the slots I go was defective but I had hard time figuring out that it was the memory. I could not install Windows and the installation process keep freezing. Memory tests said that everything is ok. Just after testing installation with each memory slot separately I found the faulty ram.
It was a while after the purchase so I could not get it replaced for free. BUT... see pros.

Other Thoughts: I don't find any difference between the black and red vengeance. If anyone has some thoughts on this I will appreciate sharing them.

5 out of 5 eggsA Fine Quality Pair of RAM Chips

This review is from: CORSAIR Vengeance Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMY16GX3M2A1600C9R (Red)

Pros: I like to stream games for my friends and that kind of setup needs lots of memory. 16 Gigs is plenty for the task and these memory modules are up to the task. They work at a pretty good speed and they look nice doing it. What more can I say? Corsair knows what they're doing.

Cons: I have nothing negative to say about this product. It works as advertised.

Other Thoughts: Red a pretty color for the aluminum heat sinks on the memory chips, but I wonder if they'll make them in purple?

4 out of 5 eggsSnug fit to install, but work great

This review is from: CORSAIR Vengeance Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMY16GX3M2A1600C9R (Red)

Pros: Win 10 Driver downloads & installs automatically. Noticeable improvement in speed over original 8gb that came with computer. No noticeable heat buildup.

Cons: Because of their thickness, they are a snug fit to install in original slots.

Other Thoughts: A very good memory upgrade for a reasonable price.

Pros: Came well-packaged and functioned well right out the box. I had to adjust the speed in the BIOS because my mobo defaulted to 1333, but it handles itself fine.

Cons: None so far.

1 out of 5 eggsCorsair Vengeance Pro 16GB

This review is from: CORSAIR Vengeance Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMY16GX3M2A1600C9R (Red)

Pros: Never worked when I got it, so can't say anything good about it.

Cons: Right out the box, I upgraded my Computers RAM. and my Computer goes into blue error screens saying "MEMORY_MANAGEMENT" and etc... So I ran Memtest on it and it froze about halfway but the results came up at the very least 558,080 errors on the RAM and would have most likely continued to have more errors if it didn't freeze. So in conclusion its faulty RAM.

Other Thoughts: Will give Corsair another chance.
