Corsair Memory is specifically designed for rock-solid stability in demanding applications. Data lines are carefully engineered for noise immunity; clock lines are optimized for minimum skew. All modules use JEDEC-compliant six-layer.
Pros: No errors on memtest, overclocks easily in the bios of an SLI Motherboard. Cool to the touch. Lifetime Warranty
Cons: Different versions of the same model of memory might not work together. Nobody tells you this and retailers don't specify which version they sell to you.
Overall Review: If you already bought one pair and are thinking about getting another set, you better make sure the second set is the same revision number. If they're different, they will work at 800Mhz, but your motherboard will not recognize them for EPP.
Pros: Stable at 1066 with 2.2 volts.
Overall Review: Good advice on the voltages. Everyone should check thier mobo's stock ram voltages when installing this set and adjust it if necessary to a recommended level if it is low, then continue to up it as you overclock. Some mobos are set for much lower voltages than this stuff likes out of the box. A quality PSU is a given. Remeber it is rated to take 2.2 volts at 1066 and mine is perfect at that level. Permanent damage has been reported when volting to 2.4 volts or above... Heads up if you plan to go balistic.
Pros: Definately some fast and good quality RAM. Worth every penny. My rig boots up so fast, and installs/loads apps with a blink of an eye. EXCELLENT Tech support from MFG. GET THIS!
Cons: 1st pair i got, one of the sticks was bad. But sent to CORSAIR and they replaced in less than a Week.
Pros: Good fast RAM. Obviously, it's Corsair. Now have to pair of this for a total of 4GB on my Asus P5B-Deluxe.
Cons: 1st pair received in still running great after 2-1/2 months. This pair went bad after two weeks. RMA turnaround with Corsair took about 5 days. Also the Corsair rebates are dreadfully slow.
Overall Review: Only 3GB will be seen by any 32-bit Operating System such as Windows-XP.
Pros: Uses Handpicked Micron D9GMH chips used by most ram manufacturers for their highest performing ram.
Best cooling design of all the high performance ram modules.
Running at 1080mhz at 5-5-5-15 at 2.2v on my evga 680i mb.
Tuns cas 4 at 800mhz easily.
Overall Review: The performance vs DDR2-800 will not be noticed by most. Cost for the extra perfomance not worth the price you pay for anything other than a pure enthusiast pc.
Pros: Works great with my new rig I just built all from Newegg, Thanks New Egg, you rock.
Overall Review: Fast and it works great with my Gigabyte GA-X38-DS4 motherboard from newegg, getting a 5.6 rating in Vista with my CPU being the slowest part and it is a 45nm 3Ghz core2 so this memory is fast, no need to pay for the DDR3 stuff.
Pros: Runs at 1066with the epp or with manual settings. I have 4 sticks running @ 1066(1 set is acually 1142)
Cons: You can not use the EPP with 4 sticks and must use all manual settings. It took a while to get all the setting right with several emails to corsair and EVGA. Seams to fail quickly when useing the EPP mode. also you must update windows to see all 4 gigs inwindows and 32 bit will only use 3 gigs though. Also make sure you have a good power supply
Overall Review: runs great if you take the time to set it up right. They run @ 800 Mhz and 1.8v out of the box for compatability. I have had other manufactures ram were I had to use a diffrent peice of ram to manualy put it the setting just to get them to post.
EVGA 680i MB Intel Q6600 4x1 Corsair Dominator Ram EVGA 8800 GTX video card Thermaltake 300w video power supply Thermaltake 600w power supply
Pros: I bought 4 gigs and runs great. No problems, no hassles just plug and play. You can buy an optional fan for it, but the 4 gigs I have runs cool enough that I can't justify buying a fan for it.
Overall Review: Windows XP only sees a grand total of 4 gigs of memory. If any component in your system has memory, that contributes to the grand total. So if you buy 4 gigs of system memory and you have a 1 gig memory vid card, then your system will only see 3 gigs of your RAM. There are hacks around this, but it is not supported by Microsoft.
