I bought this kit for a new PC build and am extremely happy with it. High powered and able to handle my HD video processing without a hitch. Super fast postage by Amazon makes it an all-round winner. You will not be disappointed.

Once setup, working great.

These sticks are a little bit tricky to get running at 1600 Mhz speeds on certain motherboards. I've heard of people having trouble on X58 based Asus and EVGA boards so far, had a few hiccups getting them running smoothly on my EVGA X58 SLI LE. More an operator issue, rather than the memory itself.

The problem I was having was that the sticks would be stuck at 2:8 @ 1066 Mhz, regardless of XMP Profiles I would assign, or the memory settings I input manually. Overclocking my base clocks to reach 1600Mhz worked, but it wasn't Prime stable. Besides, I should have been able to run at stock clocks at 2:12|1600Mhz. The problem, as discovered, was that there were two "Turbo" settings in my BIOS. One was a "Turbo Mode", which added a bonus multiplier (good thing), the other was a "Turbo Performance" setting nested in the voltage controls, which was more of an eco friendly turbo mode (bad thing). It was the latter that had my memory multiplier stuck at 2:8. Disabling it quickly resolved the issue.

I haven't pushed the memory all that much, but it has been reliable with a mild overclock @ 2:10, 1663Mhz, stock voltages.

Corsair, being one of the top manufacturers of memory and flash products, has a real winner with this set! Tooling around with VM Workstation, continuously running multiple applications, and 15 IE tabs, a 12GB upgrade was on the warranted and on the menu . The fact that these sticks run at the specified 1.5 volts was a plus (more efficiency, less heat + more) that caught my eye. They also have XMP profiles built in, so when I am feeling froggy, I can crank everything up, and get them well past their 1600Mhz rating.

With a price that is very fair, a solid look and feel, and the Corsair name - this was a win-win-win.

Overclocked just fine and is running at a modest temperature. Definitely recommended from Corsair. Could not beat the price! Buy it!

It's good ram. I replaced 6 gigs of ram running at 1333 with this kit. My motherboard is an ASUS p6t deluxe ver.2. You need to configure the Bios to an XMP profile in order for it to take advantage of the 1600 MHz speed. Once that was done,which is very easy to do, windows takes over and it should run without any problems. With this new ram, my pc runs much faster and it takes advantage of the triple channel architecture of the I7 920. I noticed a big difference.

I do not know much about memory, but I do know is that my pc runs very well with these reports, I have an Intel Extreme DX58SO motherboard, and these 12GB runs great and I want to take 16gb, and the dissipation system heat excellent, I recommend it 100%.

Easy installation and nice looking heat syncs. I put these into a ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 motherboard. In order to reach 1600mhz I had to very simply change the AI Tweaker profile to X.M.P.. The default profile (Profile 1) does allow 1600mhz but the second profile bumps the voltage up a bit.

!!!UPDATE!!!
One of the sticks has gone bad only days after getting it setup and configured. The Corsair RMA process is extremely slow. It's also a bit more complicated than most. Usually you pay shipping one way and while that is the case with corsair they also don't suggest a carrier other than USPS and you must drop it off yourself.

The cost was very low but this meant that I had to go to the post office, pack the memory, address the box and write my RMA number on it and then ship it out. Most companies just charge you for a shipping label that they have you print off and send. It will probably take more than a month to get this package back.

!!!UPDATE 2!!!
Everything came back and the stick has been running problem free ever since.
