1 out of 5 eggsDead and customer service is poor

Pros: Did what it was suppose to do

Cons: Only lasted 6 months.
There is no express service available for this premium product
Your going to have to wait weeks to have this RAM replaced
Probably end up buying more on your own in the mean time or just do without a working PC.
Corsair customer support has not responded in over 3 days.
Chat doesn't work, no one ever answers the phone.

Other Thoughts: Corsair has gone down hill

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

Thank you,

5 out of 5 eggsGreat DDR 1600 RAM from a reliable manufaturer

Pros: - Excellent aluminum heat spreaders
- Works well out of the box with zero configuration
- Recognized at correct specifications in BIOS and Windows
- Great DIMMs made by a known company with good reputation
- Made in Taiwan
- Lifetime warranty

Cons: - Heat spreaders might be too tall for some people in crowded or small cases
- DDR3 1600 isn't 1866, but if you overclock it a bit it a bit the gap is less important; it is worth noting that DDR3 1866 *is* superior

Other Thoughts: Grabbed this on Newegg sale for $139.00 - was too good of a deal to pass up. Upgrading from 4 GBs of RAM on an aging AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE build. Night and day performance increase in games and Windows 8/8.1 and Mac OS X Mavericks (virtual machine).

1 out of 5 eggsNever had an issue with Corsair memory until now

Pros: Looks good, reasonably priced for the timing.

Cons: I purchased this ram in late October 2013 and it's now April 2014. It was fast at first, but my machine seemed to be slowing overtime. I assumed it was just the "new build effect" where you get used to how fast hardware is after a while. Then one day I was playing BF4 and I started having some horrible graphics glitching. Tried to restart my machine and it BSODed with an error from memory manager. So I ran memtest86+ overnight and both sticks had tons of bad sectors.

Other Thoughts: I've never had any issues with Corsair products until this most recent build. Purchased a water cooler and ram and both have failed in under a year. I'm not sure what's going on with Corsair's quality control, but they need to get things together. I'll be replacing this ram with some GSkill Ripjaws and selling the RMA replacement. I can't go for weeks with no ram.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsWorks on the GA-990FXA-UD3

Pros: 32 gigs is way faster than 16! If you've read the review by DANIEL s. below you should know not to post after "Happy Hour!"
I've never seen, or owned a faster rig! My FX-8350 just loves the extra headroom!

Cons: I paid more for the first set, but now with 32 gigs, I don't care! Still no Sammy, and I had to clean out the dust bunnies again! No cons here!

Other Thoughts: I promise not to post after happy hour! Ha-ha!
I really wanted to build a rig that would do everything that I wanted it to do for my needs. I'm a COD, and Battlefield fan, and some other WWII fps. You know my board and cpu, so this is my rig:
CM HAF XM case, from the EGG, best case ever!
Corsair H-80 cooler,
2x ProlimaTech Ultra Sleek Vortex 14 fans on the H-80 (pwm 140mm fans with a 120mm hole pattern that not only push more air on a 120 rad, they work great on the CM 212 EVO, just ask my office rig. 'bought them at the EGG!)
4 CM Mega Flow 200mm red led fans, 1 on the door, 1 on front, and 2 on the top, you'll probably guess the airflow.
EVGA 1000 watt psu, 1000 G2 also from the EGG!
2x EVGA GTX 560ti 2gb in sli
SoundBlaster X-fi Fatality,
The above mobo and cpu, and
32 gigs of this glorious Corsair Vengeance Pro in red form!
32 gigs, SLI on an AMD based rig!
I love Life!
