This replaced 8gb of Patriot Gamer 2 that wouldnt work with my motherboard. Its running currently at 9-9-9-24 ddr3-1600 and around 1.6v. Scored a 7.8 windows rating. Love it and Love Corsair memory.

I specifically selected this pair of memory modules to match the ones I already have. The specs were good: DDR3, 1600mhz, CAS9. Plugged them into my Gigabyte GA-MA785GMT motherboard. Set the BIOS memory to 1.65v and clocked them to1600mhz, everything else related to memory set to Auto. The box is well ventilated (7 fans total). CPU running at spec; no overclocking.

Boot-up and system operation was fine - for about a month. Then I started getting system freezes, unexpected restarts, and then it started freezing at the BOIS! After some troubleshooting, a BIOS reset, and swapping out of memory modules, I discover its my newly purchased memory.

So why did these fail? You tell me. I've been building for more than a dozen years, and one thing I've learned is to buy name brand parts, and from reputable sources. So this really sucks.

These RAM sticks are well made and are compatible with my ASUS Z87-A board and new haswell i5 processor. They work as they should but just remember to set up your XMP profile in your motherboard bios to utilize the factory timings and speeds of the sticks.

When I built my new computer I knew I wanted to have a good amount of RAM. I decided to go with Corsair for multiple reasons. The main being their price. I have not been disappointed. This RAM has been working great!

Corsair has always been consistently good in the RAM realm, and the XMS series works great in workstations. I had to set XMP to see 1600mhz, but that is the norm for most "office" oriented memory.

I have yet to ever have a dead stick of corsair memory, fingers crossed.

If you are looking for reliable workstation RAM from a trustworthy company, definitely check this out. If you are more gaming minded, I suggest looking at something else.

Ordered this package to max out my memory on my mother board to 16GB, these were the same as my other modules. Noticed quicker boot, quicker processing times and rendering times, increased speed in web browsing, stress tests in applications. Pretty pleased overall.

Great RAM, for a good price. It feels very sturdy too. I thought there was something wrong because my Anti-Virus software would crash due to some kind of memory error, but I ran a diagnostic on it and there are no bad sectors. I think my Anti-Virus software is the problem (Kaspersky).

UPDATE: almost a year after buying this I've consistently but also totally random Blue Screens of Death which started the first day I built my PC. I replaced, the case, the PSU, and when I use one stick, everything works fine. When I take that one stick out and use the other one my computer crashes instantaneously. Bottom line, I was sent a bad stick of RAM. Since its been so long I don't know if I can return through Amazon, and Corsair's warranty will either try to repair it or send a refurbished one. I haven't tried the return but I'll update with the result.

Always had good luck with this budget performance RAM. Good overclocker. Good stock as well. System performance always seems to very obviously improve when I add this line of memory to almost and system.
