Corsair built its reputation on performance memory that shines in the most demanding computing situations: extreme gaming and high-transaction processing environments. But not all computers are put to such extreme usage. So we brought the same reliability, testing and Corsair quality to a line of memory designed to support standard computing situations such as popular office applications. Now it’s one of our most popular memory lines. Backed with a lifetime warranty, it is memory you can rely on.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
So I did a return with a replacement. Installed new set today and system crashed fast. This time I did some testing and figured out which DIMM was bad. System consistently crashed with bad DIMM within a minute of boot. Did another return with replacement. Final replacement set worked.
So out of four sets I received, two had at least one bad DIMM. But now I have a system up and running without any issues for over a month now.
My machine had no problem detecting the new RAM, and within minutes I was back up and running with noticeably less slowdown during my heavy use of IDEs (programming environments) and Photoshop, both of which are substantial memory hogs.
It's worth noting that you should check the highest speed of memory your rig supports. Many newer CPUs support 1600 MHz RAM, which allows for faster communication with the computer, but many are still limited to 1333 MHz. Some fairly recent computers are even limited lower, at 1066 MHz.
In laymans terms, putting this in some machines might not get you that machine's full potential memory-wise, and putting it in some might limit the performance of the memory itself. Since faster memory can usually be clocked down, there's nothing wrong with getting memory that's faster than you can support if you plan on upgrading your CPU later, but, generally, the lower the speed, the cheaper the memory, all else being equal.
So, I ordered four kits, installed them all in the same mobo, and the software world looks ever so different from the perspective of the first and only 64Gbyte machine I've used. This is what the future feels like.
In the 8 DIMMs I got, there are no flaws or defects. All were manufactured in the same week, and they are perfectly matched in timing etc as far as my motherboard can tell.
It often happens that when you mount eight DIMMs together you have to use a speed lower than rated or lengthened timings due to subtle mismatches that are usually not noticeable in installations of two or four, but I'm not seeing that here. These are solidly in spec and work perfectly together. I'm not an overclocking gamer with requirements that exceed the factory specs for the hardware, but I'm completely satisfied.
Don't feel tricked because it says "Value Select" on the label, this doesn't feel like they cut any corners to get this RAM produced.
As always, I'll update this if I have any issues or further thoughts.
If you are using this ram with Windows 7, make sure you flip on superfetch. Superfetch is a Windows technology that will analyze your computer usage, and automatically load programs into ram. So for those applications you launch frequently, they will start almost instantly. [...] will explain how you can enable Superfetch.
