These sticks are a little bit tricky to get running at 1600 Mhz speeds on certain motherboards. I've heard of people having trouble on X58 based Asus and EVGA boards so far, had a few hiccups getting them running smoothly on my EVGA X58 SLI LE. More an operator issue, rather than the memory itself.
The problem I was having was that the sticks would be stuck at 2:8 @ 1066 Mhz, regardless of XMP Profiles I would assign, or the memory settings I input manually. Overclocking my base clocks to reach 1600Mhz worked, but it wasn't Prime stable. Besides, I should have been able to run at stock clocks at 2:12|1600Mhz. The problem, as discovered, was that there were two "Turbo" settings in my BIOS. One was a "Turbo Mode", which added a bonus multiplier (good thing), the other was a "Turbo Performance" setting nested in the voltage controls, which was more of an eco friendly turbo mode (bad thing). It was the latter that had my memory multiplier stuck at 2:8. Disabling it quickly resolved the issue.
I haven't pushed the memory all that much, but it has been reliable with a mild overclock @ 2:10, 1663Mhz, stock voltages.
One of the sticks has gone bad only days after getting it setup and configured. The Corsair RMA process is extremely slow. It's also a bit more complicated than most. Usually you pay shipping one way and while that is the case with corsair they also don't suggest a carrier other than USPS and you must drop it off yourself.
The cost was very low but this meant that I had to go to the post office, pack the memory, address the box and write my RMA number on it and then ship it out. Most companies just charge you for a shipping label that they have you print off and send. It will probably take more than a month to get this package back.
Everything came back and the stick has been running problem free ever since.
With a price that is very fair, a solid look and feel, and the Corsair name - this was a win-win-win.
After 3 months of use, I can report no blue screens or freezes of any sort. My "old" system running Windows 10 has been rock-solid in terms of stability. The biggest speed gain (and the reason for the memory upgrade) can be seen during my photo editing sessions as stitching multiple RAW files during panoramic creation and/or stacking multiple photos during HDR processing really eats up memory.
Overall, I am quite happy with this memory and will be purchasing another set to max out the memory allowance of my motherboard.
One caveat: the heat spreaders are a little on the tall side. My video card heat sink (passive, and admittedly large) prevented me from loading these into the three slots that I would have liked to use. Luckily I have 6 slots total. I put my old RAM close to the video card and these farther away.
I suppose I could have removed the heat sinks if I really needed to. Anyway...something to be aware of. Probably similar to other brands that come with heat sinks.

I had Dominator 6gb and these are not compatible. Same company cannot mix. Instead of adding 12 gb, I went from 6 to 12 gb. May purchase another set to max out my system. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Bobby L. Allen
