Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Corsair Vengeance Blue 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory (Personal Computers)
Why worry about your CPU Cooler being able to clear your ram chips? Buy Lo Profile and you'll be happy! These work well, overclock easily, and are rock-solid. Everything you want in your game build-- and none of the ridiculous heat spreaders that fight with today's monster air-coolers. Plus- they're blue and match the ASUS motherboard! Bought 16GB kit from Amazon - and I'm set. No worries about trying to add on later - all four ram slots filled, Noctua DH-14 monster air cooler sits on top, clearance to spare. I'm 100% satisfied with these ram chips, and my ASUS motherboard was able to push them over 1600 up to 1633 or so with no crashes or lockups.
***UPDATE 12/3/2012- Overclockers, I recommend the 1866mhz model of this product over the 1600mhz version. Why? More stability at the higher overclocks. Your system won't run 'faster' because of the 1866 speed vs the 1600 speed ram- but it will be MORE STABLE when you start reaching for 4.7ghz clock on AIR COOLING. Other than that caveat, I highly recommend Corsair because they have TOP TIER aftercare, lifetime no-quibble warranty- and amazing customer service. Plus, their chips just flat out LOOK really cool, and let's face it, that counts too, yeah?***
