G.SKILL Ares Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-1333C9Q-16GAO
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: None. I was not able to get these modules to work with my systems.

Cons: Something has changed in the manufacturing process of these DDR3 modules. Memory made before a certain date (2013) works fine. Memory manufactured more recently than that date doesn't work at all in my dozens of Dell OptiPlex 780 business-class workstations. System won't even POST, just gives a long beep as soon as you plug it in.

Other Thoughts: I do not recommend purchasing these modules if you have a Dell system.

CORSAIR XMS3 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 Desktop Memory Model CMX16GX3M4A1333C9
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Don't know, was unable to get these to work in my system.

Cons: Due to a new manufacturing process, these modules are no longer compatible with my Dell OptiPlex 780 motherboards. Modules purchased before a certain date work fine, those purchased after don't work at all. System won't even POST, just beeps as soon as you plug in the power cord. This is the same problem I had with G.Skill modules. Very disappointed in these manufacturers testing procedures.

Other Thoughts: These modules don't work in my dozens of OptiPlex 780 systems. Am very disappointed that manufacturers couldn't test them in advance for compatibility with standard business-class workstations.
