Some what disappointed 10/12/2018 5:58:13 AM

Pros: works in many different CPU / Motherboard combinations. Most motherboards have this model in the QVL as recommended ram

Cons: does not run at 1600 mhz unless the XMP is turned on and it wont run passed that unless the voltage is increased. 1866 was capable but on the gigabyte board I used the voltage was 2.0+ to run stable which isnt a lot seeing they can go 2.5 if youre whiling to cut the life of the ram to 1/3. These should run 1866 at 1.65 volts but thats not going to happen and 2133? Forget about it.

Overall Review: If you want decent ram that runs at 1333 then this is a good choice. If you want to overclock and voltage mod then I say look elsewhere because this is not the best choice. Voltage mods will heat this up and thats not a good thing especially in a LAN Party gaming cube. I like Corsair ram and its always been a good choice especially in an AMD system. I will continue to use this brand but this particular item wont be my first choice.

Doesn't run at 1600 mhz by default! Depends on 1600 XMP profile to reach those speeds! 8/30/2018 7:34:12 AM

Pros: On my MSI Gaming 5, socket 1150 motherboard, these modules can stably operate at 2133mhz on automatic set voltages in the bios!

Cons: Doesn't default to 1600mhz but to 1333mhz, but overclocks well with the right motherboard!

No issues 5/17/2017 11:10:21 PM

Pros: -Nice addition to my old EVGA X58. Matched up perfectly to the 8 year old identical ram already installed. Had 6Gb now 12, yeah!
-Passes mem test no issues

Cons: -Used DHL for shipping. (- 1 egg) ...7 days and ended up being delivered by usps. Spoiled I guess because my other items came fed ex/ups in 2 days normal shipping.

Overall Review: Had to manually set timing to 9,9,9,24 in bios. defaulted to 11,11,11,28.

Expanded memory 5/3/2017 2:04:39 PM

Pros: Easy to use
worked will with my motherboard and with my other memory
cheaper than the original memory I had in my computer
now I have 16 gbs of ram :)

Cons: Probably not what I'd pick if I was very serious about making a top of the line computer (probably pick a newer type of ram with better timing)

Overall Review: Would recommend, especially if you are looking for a cheapish update for an older computer.

Reliable and good performance. Great customer support. 3/1/2017 3:55:51 PM

Pros: I initially bought 4gb (2 sticks) back in 2009. A year or two later, I added 2 more sticks. I've been using this RAM daily ever since for tons of different applications and loads of gaming. This RAM and my Corsair power supply are the only thing that have lasted through 2 PC upgrades. 1 stick just barely died, but the RMA process was easy and fast. Corsair promptly sent me 2 new sticks of RAM. Good thing these babies have a lifetime warranty! Definitely recommend

Cons: According to Asus Suite II, these sticks run a bit hot. I've never had any problems performance wise though.
