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.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›

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). Read morePublished 13 months ago by Kyle
Bought these about 4 years ago still going strong. Got them matched with a pair of critical 6gb for a total of 12 romping gbs. No issues in the 4 years of owning them.Published 17 months ago by Boguardis
I've had this memory for years now and it still works great. It overclocks well and is very stable even at 1800MHz.Published on April 3, 2013 by KC
My only complaint is that I bought this stuff when memory prices where high. Also, PC temperatures seem to go sky high when you run this memory at the recommended 1600 mhz. Read morePublished on January 17, 2013 by AJ

I've had OCZ RAM for the past 2 years and recently added these 6 gigs of OCZ to my current 6 gigs of OCZ. Solid as a rock and have never had any issues.Published on November 15, 2010 by lango3
