Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory (CMZ8GX3M2A1600C8) (Personal Computers)
I just built a new system using these. Make sure when you're doing your research for parts, to get THIS set (CMZ8GX3M2A1600C8) rather than the CL 9 set (CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9)! Just a tad more, but worth it for the better speeds. As mentioned before me, also load the XMP profile or set up your timings/speed in your BIOS to get the full potential of this ram. If you're worried about the heat sinks being too tall, go with a sealed water cooling kit! The Corsair H70 or the Antec H2O 620 are both awesome... I have the latter of the two and it's wonderful (but that's another review). I also love that all 8192MB of memory is being seen, good stuff!
