Once setup, working great.

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.

I bought this kit for a new PC build and am extremely happy with it. High powered and able to handle my HD video processing without a hitch. Super fast postage by Amazon makes it an all-round winner. You will not be disappointed.

It's good ram. I replaced 6 gigs of ram running at 1333 with this kit. My motherboard is an ASUS p6t deluxe ver.2. You need to configure the Bios to an XMP profile in order for it to take advantage of the 1600 MHz speed. Once that was done,which is very easy to do, windows takes over and it should run without any problems. With this new ram, my pc runs much faster and it takes advantage of the triple channel architecture of the I7 920. I noticed a big difference.

Easy installation and nice looking heat syncs. I put these into a ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 motherboard. In order to reach 1600mhz I had to very simply change the AI Tweaker profile to X.M.P.. The default profile (Profile 1) does allow 1600mhz but the second profile bumps the voltage up a bit.

!!!UPDATE!!!
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.

!!!UPDATE 2!!!
Everything came back and the stick has been running problem free ever since.

Corsair, being one of the top manufacturers of memory and flash products, has a real winner with this set! Tooling around with VM Workstation, continuously running multiple applications, and 15 IE tabs, a 12GB upgrade was on the warranted and on the menu . The fact that these sticks run at the specified 1.5 volts was a plus (more efficiency, less heat + more) that caught my eye. They also have XMP profiles built in, so when I am feeling froggy, I can crank everything up, and get them well past their 1600Mhz rating.

With a price that is very fair, a solid look and feel, and the Corsair name - this was a win-win-win.

Installed w/o any issues into my Asus P6T motherboard (Intel X58 chipset) --- Also confirmed triple-channel operation with proper DRAM frequency via CPU-Z.

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.

I was very pleased with this item. Three sticks of RAM. Lots of space. For my work I do a lot of grinding data in R, which holds everything in RAM and I was always running out. I stuck these babies in, and it's no longer a problem.

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.

These work fine for me. Would be nice if Corsair would provide on their website a selection guide and/or more detailed product descriptions to be better able to choose which product family (platinum vs. vengeance vs. vengeance LP vs. vengeance Pro vs. mainstream) is best for a given application. Marketing buzz-words like "fast" vs. "high performance" vs. "extreme performance" are not very helpful and so perhaps I purchased more expensive RAMs than I really needed. Yes I understand about overclocking but would it not be better to simply spec the part in terms of maximum tested clock rate rather than saying its an 1800Mhz part rated for overclocking. What does that mean? At what clock frequency was the batch of parts tested at?
