Well I had read a lot of reviews before buying about DOA sticks, but figured at the price plus rebate, no one had a better deal. First let me say because of the concerns of DOA sticks I ordered from amazon instead of newegg or any other computer company because of return policies and that was a SMART decision on my part. all other companies require you to send back your defective merchandise before they send a replacement, well if its the only RAM you have, that means you can't use your PC for 2 weeks! In my case I did receive defects, at first I thought it was only 1 stick as the other two passed Memtest86 and windows mem check without problems. I asked amazon for a replacement and they sent the replacement the same day (2 day UPS!!!) and said to send back the bad RAM after I received the replacement, that is AWESOME customer service on amazons part.

Well I thought everything was running okay with the 2 sticks but shortly realized that when I tried to open any movie files (no matter the format) or actually just click on the folder they were in, windows 7 would freeze or shut down! I was about to cry (manly cry) because I had spent hours setting everything up on my new build and SSD and thought all my old data was lost! I had all my drivers updated BIOS configured to standard for cpu and memory, but couldn't access the files. I even re-installed windows, after hours of setting it up. Well an hour later UPS came with my replacement memory (remember 2 sticks I was using passed all memory tests). I popped in the first stick (like to test one at a time) and it ran okay, then I went into windows, clicked on the media folder and it OPENED! I was couldn't believe it, the problem was the memory when all the tests showed it was okay.

I originally went with 3x2GB OCZ Gold 1600Mhz and ran them at 8-8-8-24-1T with 1.625vDDR in my i7 920 setup with Evga 758 board. I recently bought another set of 3x2GB from Amazon and just put them in the remaining 3 slots for a total of 12GB and everything worked out of the box WITH SAME SETTINGS! No timings or voltage needed change, except for VTT which I decreased to +75mV from +125mV. My stable BCLK using Auto vcore went up from 192 to 196.

I ran the memtest overnight and then 2hrs LinX run at max memory setting to make sure 12GB goes through its paces repeatedly under stress. No issues in either of these tests.

Make sure to set the settings (dram ratio - 2:8, timings - 8,8,8,24-1T, and voltage - 1.625 or 1.65v) in BIOS manually and don't depend on BIOS detecting timings automatically.

And most importantly: Do not touch the RAM modules without getting rid of the static charge that accumulates on your body. Use an anti-static wrist wrap bound to metal somewhere or at least touch metal grill or some other metal like your screwdriver before handling RAM. Static discharge will destroy your RAM modules and memtest will throw errors. Nothing the vendor can do against this.

Okay seriously. Eff this RAM and eff OCZ. This stuff has been unstable from day one, when I was too young or arrogant to bother returning it (I thought my settings were wrong). The second kit I got to expand to 12GB failed after six hours, and I had to send it back. The replacement kit SEEMS to work, so maybe I can just pull the older sticks and have 6GB of working RAM? Either way, this stuff blows.

Had an SSD from them die recently too. Should've just gotten another Samsung or Crucial.

I bought a set of these to stand in for a set of Corsair XMS3 modules that were going through the RMA process. All three OCZ modules posted immediately based upon the BIOS settings I had set for the Corsair modules (1544MHz, 8-8-8-24 timings, 1.64V, with a i920 clocked at 4.05MHz).

Many reviewers and users recommend Corsair over OCZ due to better dependability/brand; one of my Corsair modules died after about 5 weeks and I needed a replacement set within a week (the RMA process took between 2-3 weeks) so I gave this kit from OCZ a try. Amazon had these at my door in less than a week.

This particular set from OCZ, along with the XMS3 from Corsair, is among the most commonly used kits for 1600MHz 8-8-8-24 timing RAM.

I've had zero problems with the OCZ modules over the past month.

As it's been mentioned, you will need to set the proper settings in your motherboard's BIOS to get them to run at the rated speed; by default, they run at 1066MHz.

What I can't comment on is the higher rate of shipped dead modules from OCZ, or failed modules that initially posted. That's caveat number one with OCZ, based upon what others have said; allegedly higher than Corsair.

Personally, I've had bad luck with my one experience with Corsair, no problems with OCZ; this is probably not the norm, but this simply demonstrates that ALL components from any manufacturer have the potential for slipping by factory tests before being shipped to consumers.

I also can't comment on OCZ customer support, seeing as how I haven't had to go through the RMA process with their kit, nor have I needed tech support to get these running at the settings I specified. That's caveat number two. Some allege that OCZ customer support could be better.
