MASSIVE FAILURE - System Builder Review
on May 31, 2012
I'm a custom systems builder in Los Angeles and I've just returned for replacement the 3rd set of these 16gb 4x4 Corsair Vengeance 1600 speed RAM back to Corsair all within the last 3 weeks for systems that I built less than 6 months ago. 3 weeks, 3 successive clients called about random blue screening which became more frequent until their computers would blue screen immediately upon boot up. Running MEMTEST, all sets of RAM exhibited massive ERROR and FAILURE and unfortunately have to be returned to Corsair who is really starting to slip not only in the quality of their RAM but their CUSTOMER SERVICE is horrible these days. I'd go into more detail but Amazon frowns on comments that aren't attributed directly to the product itself. Suffice it to say that I'm now going to start moving away from Corsair products in my custom builds.
Edit 7/9/2012: Just returned a 4th set of the Vengeance 4x4gb kits. I am now using G.Skill RAM for my Sandy & Ivy Bridge builds and no problems whatsoever so far.
