Pros: Runs at 1600mhz in my Asus M5897 like it's supposed to AFTER overclocking it. It defaults to 1333 for some reason in my Asus M5897 mobo.
Cons: My Asus M5897 motherboard for some reason sets this memory to run at 1333 instead of 1600. When I run the system info it says this is 1333 memory which I thought was strange. I had to "overclock" it to 1600 to get it to run at 1600 in my Asus MOBO. Searching the internet I found that others have had the same issue when using this memory in an Asus MOBO. Asus says its the memory, Corsair says its the motherboard. I don't know whose fault it is, either ASUS needs to update their BIOS or Corsair is using 1333 memory and rating it at 1600. More than likely ASUS just needs to update their BIOS. I overclocked it to its 1600 rating and its running like a champ at 9-9-9-24 @ 1.5v like it says. Just wish my MOBO would set it where it should be automatically without it needing to be "overclocked."
Other Thoughts: I gave it 5 eggs since this memory runs good and I don't know if the 1333 issue is related to the motherboard BIOS or the memory.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS M5A97 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
Pros: Bought this MOBO along with a Phenom II X4 965 BE CPU. It works great, overclocks great, and does everything it is supposed to do very nicely. I am a big ASUS fan and have owned many ASUS MOBOs, this is another exceptional product.
Cons: NoneREAD FULL REVIEW
