4.0 out of 5 stars BSOD at stock voltage...
When I first installed this RAM, my mobo's BIOS automatically set the frequency to 1333mhz. I had to go in and change it to 1600mhz myself. However, as soon as I did so I started getting BSODs at the Windows loading screen. At first I thought the RAM was faulty (and maybe it is), but it turns out the stock voltage it was getting (1.5v) wasn't enough for that frequency,...

2.0 out of 5 stars Unfortunately it became Defective after a month
So a month ago I decided to build a PC Gaming Computer and decided I would use this for RAM hearing that it was good. I am not an expert when it comes to computers because I am still only in high school but I know a thing or two about computers. Had this RAM for about a month and just the other day I started getting blue screens of death. I investigated what it could be...

4.0 out of 5 stars BSOD at stock voltage..., September 15, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Corsair Vengeance Blue 4GB (1x4GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory (CMZ4GX3M1A1600C9B) (Personal Computers)
When I first installed this RAM, my mobo's BIOS automatically set the frequency to 1333mhz. I had to go in and change it to 1600mhz myself. However, as soon as I did so I started getting BSODs at the Windows loading screen. At first I thought the RAM was faulty (and maybe it is), but it turns out the stock voltage it was getting (1.5v) wasn't enough for that frequency, so I had to go into the BIOS and increase it a bit to 1.525v, and now it works great. It's not a big deal, but trying to figure out what was wrong, was quite frustrating.

For those wondering, my specs are:
AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE
Gigabyte GA-990XA-UD3 mobo
Windows 7 Home Premium

2.0 out of 5 stars Unfortunately it became Defective after a month, October 11, 2013

This review is from: Corsair Vengeance Blue 4GB (1x4GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory (CMZ4GX3M1A1600C9B) (Personal Computers)
So a month ago I decided to build a PC Gaming Computer and decided I would use this for RAM hearing that it was good. I am not an expert when it comes to computers because I am still only in high school but I know a thing or two about computers. Had this RAM for about a month and just the other day I started getting blue screens of death. I investigated what it could be because it displayed that the problem was "Memory_Management" and after checking my memory through windows I discovered that this "great cost effective Gaming RAM" is now defective....
All in all I am very disappointed that it only lasted a month after I spent $40 some dollars on it....not to mention the hair pulling out when my computer blue screened on me...
This may not be a common thing with Corsair and I don't believe that it is...but from now on I will no longer be buying their RAM
Thats the two-cents of a 16 year old

Great ram! Works flawlessly. I have two sticks and both work extremely well in my custom build. When I have a little more money I'll definitely be picking up more of these.

These are great RAM sticks and work flawlessly. I bought these(4 of them to be exact) when I was building my rig and they are lightning fast.

My son purchased this to build a new computer. I helped with the construction. The memory worked well but the issue we ran into was the height of the chips caused it to interfere with installation of the CPU heat sink. Just be careful and understand this memory is taller than your average memory chip.

this ram is very fast (1600mghz) and 35 dollars is a good price.
P.S. You may need to change the bios settings to get it to 1600mghz

I bought 6 R9 280X's which works fantastic. I did have to add 4 GB to total of 8GB now, using cgwatcher that controls cgminer perfectly, all running at 700kH once I turn off Microsoft virtual memory or page file. miner is no longer eating at my SSD whew. Hi5 enjoy this RAM
