Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory (CMZ16GX3M2A1600C10) (Personal Computers)
I'm running 4 sticks of this memory (two 2x8GB kits = total 32GB) in my Windows 7 (64 bit) machine with no problems. I've used Corsair memory for several years and I also use their SSD's on several home desktops and laptops. I recommend Corsair products.
UPDATE - if you're looking at this review you'll have to decide whether the comment made by a certain individual is of any value. Apparently this person thinks my review is misleading and I'm lucky the memory works for me. I'm simply reporting a positive experience from using 2 sets of the Corsair Vengeance 16 GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600MHz PC3 240 Pin DIMM Memory CMZ16GX3M2A1600C10 - didn't want to bore anyone with the specifics of the build. The person making the comment appears to be using a stupid sexual reference pseudonym (won't even use his/her real name) and as best I can tell likes to make negative comments about reviews rather than offering information about a product.

Check out the # of people that think your post adds to the discussion: 23 of 24 don't. Given that percentage, perhaps you should reconsider both your handle (juvenile) and comments.

This guy clearly went about providing feedback the wrong way. There is a right way to inform and there's a wrong way, and the language used here is definitely the wrong way. However, for the most part what he's saying is correct. Manufacturers prefer that all memory installed in a system be from a matched set (essentially the same production run), which you ensure by buying a kit. In other words, 2X(2x8GB) is not the same as 1X(4x8GB). Some manufacturers will even go so far as to to not provide support if the memory installed isn't from a matched set. However, since I haven't personally talked to every single manufacturer of motherboards/memory, I won't presume to know what all of their policies are.
In a nutshell, if I were installing memory into a new system I would ensure that I was installing a matched set. If I hadn't maxed out the memory of my system when I first built it, would I still consider adding more memory? Absolutely. At a minimum I would ensure that the timings were all identical, and if possible I'd get the exact same part # from the same manufacturer. And everything would probably work just fine.

Dude, for the content, I found your review to be conceise and accurate. I knew what you were speaking about
w/o you having to go into the 'little' details. Just keep up the good work & ignore those who occasionally want
to get on the web & excersixe that singular brain cell.
