Works With My MSI X570 Tomahawk MB9/14/2020 1:33:03 PM

Pros: Good price for 32 Gigs of DDR4 Ram at least when I purchased them. Memory also feel pretty sturdy. Looks great if that matters to you.

Cons: None! Be aware though the memory timing for this is 18 not 16.

Overall Review: Initially I had a issue with my new MSI X570 Tomahawk not posting with this memory. I had already built my system with CPU, Cooler and memory installed. I created my USB bios flash drive, inserted into flash port and hit the flash button. System turned on, USB had flashing led for a few minutes. System shut down by itself and then rebooted. Instantly the memory was recognized and the computer posted. Updated bios did the trick. Everything after that has been flawless. So far there have been zero issues with the memory. I ran Prime95 and MemTest and no issues at all. RGB I could care less about. Memory has been great so far. Have been using Corsair products for years.

GettingMy New Mag X570 Tomahawk to post9/8/2020 7:43:47 PM

Pros: Great motherboard once you get it to post. Easy to work with. Two M.2 NVME drives on PCIE Gen 4 ports.

Cons: Not really a con but I purchased the following memory. CORSAIR Vengeance RGB Pro 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800) Intel XMP 2.0 Desktop Memory Model CMW32GX4M2Z3600C18 I had to flash the bios to get the system to recognize the memory.

Overall Review: I tried to flash the bios according to the manual with no CPU or memory installed. I thought it worked. After building the system out and starting for the first time I had the CPU error code led come on. Nothing I tried would get the motherboard to post. Long story short. I installed one stick of my Ram mention above. I made sure my USB Drive had only the MSI.ROM updated bios file on it and that the usb drive was formatted to Fat32. I inserted the usb drive into the bios update port and pushed the button. As soon as I pushed the bios update button the system turned itself on. The usb drive flashed and ran for several minutes. When done the system shut itself down. A few seconds later it started back up but this time there was no CPU error code lit up on the motherboard. It finally posted and everything worked flawlessly after that. Windows10 is installed and I am updating drivers and getting ready to test the system. I hope this may help someone. If you have faster memory with XMP Profile capability make sure you install the latest bios first. I don't know why the first bios update attempt didn't take but this second one with the ram, CPU, GPU and M.2 installed did.

GSkill 4X4 16GB Easy Install11/5/2014 6:19:49 PM

Pros: I have a fairly older Motherboard, a very basic, Intel® Desktop Board DH55HC that I am revitalizing a bit. I received this memory, installed it and the computer booted right up. So it did work with a several year old MB. No noticeable issues and the computer is rock steady. I am not trying to O.C. this system as there is no need to. It is not for gaming., obviously. I have had good success with GSkill on multiple builds.

Cons: No cons. Memory worked without a hitch.
