For those of you new to building Core i7 based PCs, be aware that in order to run this RAM at 1600, you will have to set the memory profile to XMP in the BIOS, or on some motherboards, fill in the timings manually. These are printed on each of the 3 sticks so they shouldn't be hard to find. Not doing so will cause the RAM to run below 1600, or on some boards, not be stable.

Now that I've owned these for nearly a year I feel I can comment on them. And the comment is: Flawless. I'm even going to buy a second set to upgrade to 12GB.

I am using these with a Intel Core i7 920 on an Asus P6T6 WS Revolution motherboard.

Don't listen to W. Garrahan's review.
This kit, if put in a proper I7 motherboard with tri channel and 3 slots will be fine.
XP won't recognize the 6gb ram but will not slow your pc down at all.XP 64 would be better but I'd go windows 7, I won't install vista or Vista64.

This kit is rock solid, superfast and easily handles more voltage and oc.

This Ram is sitting on my EVGA X58 SLI3 for 5 months now with my I7 950, running 24/7 on my gaming rig. Running at 1600 MHz w/ no issues. I'm happy with this purchase and would have no second thoughts recommending this to my friends. I own a set of these, but I'm still planning to purchase another one to give my rig a total of 12GB in the future. For this price, I am a happy customer.

Delivery is also fast considering I'm in the middle east. Only took 10 days of waiting, which is way ahead of their projected delivery date.

*** Update: 5 Mar '12 ***

It has been a year since I bought these set and I am still happy with them. I have OC'd these babies carelessly since I technically bought them to learn OCing. They've crashed on me a few times before, but not they're fault.

The feel of these sticks are nice and heavy and come in a three pack. Even though my X58SO motherboard has to be adjusted to recognize 1600 ram they are still very fast. Keep in mind unless you use 64 bit Vista it doesn't matter how many you use since 32 bit will only recognize about 3 and a half. These are probably the best ram sticks I have ever owned and with the way they are made heat dissipation is very nice. Get yourself a good board and get to overclocking to get the most out of these sticks. Though the price is steep considering three sticks of DDR3 can be found for under a hundred dollars they just aren't as overclock friendly as these are. I would recommend these to people who are trying to get everything out of their system they have invested in. Why would you get all awesome parts in your rig only to drop cheap ram into it (by that I mean the green sticks of ram that come factory with most computers). I would say casual computer people shouldn't invest and these are probably only for those who want to push quality and performance. Most people don't think about the quality of RAM that they have so its not a necessity for them to have the best. Overall nice addition to my self made rig and so far everything is super fast and I am very happy with this RAM.

When I was choosing the various pieces for my new gaming/multimedia powerhouse PC the RAM choice, obviously, was a critical thing to consider, and Corsair "Dominator" has proved to be the best-performing, fastest, most stable SDRAM I've ever had the privilege of working with. I am flat out telling everyone reading this review that you are about to invest in the finest SDRAM in the marketplace of retail products, bar none!

Dominator is right! Holy Stuffed PC's! I have had my Corsair SDRAM doing everything but sitting up and "barking" for me, while I sorted out the OverClocking potential of the new PC, via air-cooling only, and it's just incredible performing SDRAM. I have had it overclocked some 266Mhz at one point, to 1866Mhz in my EVGA motherboard's BIOS/CMOS settings, and it laughed at me! NO PROBLEMA, senor!

I ended up backing the SDRAM down to 2:6 ratio in the BIOS/800Mhz, just to stabilize the CPU's high clock (3.6Ghz setting, stable as a Spring Chicken (!) with all components registering 100%, across-the-board stability for one week, and counting), but I had it set at 738Mhz DRAM Frequency for many days, and it didn't complain one little bit, was never the reason for me adjusting things downward at any time.

Where do I start? OK, let's start with the construction of the DIMMs, something of note right away that needs describing and publicity, so I'll do my best here, but don't hold me down for not trying...

Each DIMM, in its packaging, is set into a separate double-walled plastic container, inside of the shipping/display box, and there are 3 in a pack. You cannot buy them separately, as Corsair sells 6GB of Dominator in a package for "Triple Channel" memory use only.
