Unlocked BIOS for Advertised XMP 3000MHz
Pros: Got 3000MHz Timing 16-18-18-39-524-1T
Cons: none so far You will need XMP option in your laptop's BIOS. Without this option, you will need a unlocked BIOS! I can only recommend people who knows how to run things like command and DOS to buy this kit. You will need to write and flash BIOS ROM. Not simply update it.
Overall Review: Good for me so far!!!
Need Corsair Controller! Or RGB doesn't work!
Cons: This stuff requires the RGB Hub and controller. The controller is nowhere to buy. Nice job Corsair. You'd better put something like "Warning: This items requires Controller and HUB to provide RGB Function" on the title.
Overall Review: Don't buy this if you just want one Fan. Are you kidding me? Spending $57 on a fan with 5V LED? Why do you have this 90's design? I am gonna return it. To be honest, I love Corsair and have been used their products for many years. This fan is the 1st thing that disappoints me. Highly not recommended!
Updated: Successful OC 4000MHz C17 on AORUS X299
Pros: I was using this as Quad-Channel. As you may know, it's hard to get quad-channel overclockable to higher frequency. Buy I did it! 4000MHz OC, C17-17-17-37, 10 MemTestPro Processes, only 1 error, pass 100%+. C17-18-18-38 no error! Very strong stability and power even as quad.
Cons: The G.Skill RGB app finally works! But it may conflict with apps like ASUS AURA and Gigabyte RGB Fusion. You can't launch these programs at the same time. Set your board RGB and then set the G.Skill APP RGB.
Overall Review: All in all, I saw the improvement on this kit if you are willing to waste time on it. I was using timing C18 and I was never able to get higher than 3800MHz. Recently I lowered the the timing to C17 and 4000MHz bootable without problems and without motherboard post speaker report.
RGBRGBRGB! Upgraded from Entry Level EK-SPC. Never turned back.
Pros: Beautiful/Creative/GoodQuality/EasyToUse Synced RGB with Motherboard 4/5pin RGB. Or use remote to control colors. Creative Design with Pump Speed Display(Amazing function) Very heavy duty. quality is so good East to use. It's all pre-built. Plug the Power Cable, Lighting Cable and mount to the case. Everything is ready to use.
Cons: The RGB header is not designed for typical motherboard 4pin/5pin RGB connector. Need to improve this. Important! It's too loose. Only comes with one inlet G1/4 threaded tubing. I recommend to add a shorter one(like 2.5cm or 3cm). It's not a big cost. The pump speed cannot be controlled by motherboard. Not so smart to be honest. The outlet port is at the back. It's okay to use at the first time. But it's really difficult to remove the tubing from the port if I want to change my water cooling like draining it or refill it. Recommend to leave the outlet port at the left. Or make it rotary.
Overall Review: All in all. As the first RGB reservoir/pump combo made by Enermax, it's beyond expectation and doesn't make me disappointed. Just need some human centered designs improvement for next gen. Will not turn back to EK because their products don't have RGB(need add-on) lol. RGB RGB RGB!
