5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect 9 Jun 2011
By Chris
Format:Personal Computers|Verified Purchase
Bought this ram to replace 4gb of Dominators (1.8v 1600 9-9-9-24) which kept causing bluescreens due to the voltage.
Put them into my Asus Crosshair Formula IV/AMD 1090T build and they worked straight away and have been stable for over 2 weeks.

I did have to increase them to 1600mhz in the bios as they were running at 1333, but the timings were all fine. WEI score of 7.5, went up to 7.6 with a slight CPU overclock to 3.5Ghz.

Just beware of your CPU cooler, currently have a Hyper 212+ which would be a very tight squeeze to get a second set in. Just waiting for Amazon to have stock of the Corsair H100!

Best part is the warranty and support you get with Corsair, that was the decider over the G.Skill equivalent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, but quite tall when installed & possible 24 Jun 2011
Format:Personal Computers
Just received this. Seems very good so far. No problem overclocking an LGA1155 with this installed.

One slight issue though to be wary off is that the fins project quite high and can interfere with the placement of the CPU cooling unit if CPU is close to memory slots

I recently upgraded my system and bought myself a DDR3 supported mobo so needed some DDR3 RAM.
Having used Corsair DDR2 RAM before i was already happy with the performance I got from them.
With upgraded speeds it's noticable on start up straight away so am very happy with the performance.
Only small detail that you should take into account is i did have some problem with my huge heatsink on my processor and the size of the RAM, I had to buy a slightly higher heatsink to fit over the RAM as it's very tall, so just becareful if you have a heatsink that sits over the RAM slots of the height factor.
Other than that well worth the price you pay for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Stuff 23 July 2011
Format:Personal Computers
Some good quality RAM here. Comes in simple yet effective packaging. No leaflets or anything, just your two new sticks of RAM in two individual anti-static plastic shells which are both in a cardboard sleeve. Installed in a breeze and are designed to work well with new Intel Sandy Bridge setups. These are the same as the Cerulean Blue sticks, the blue ones are just to match new Intel motherboards which have blue heatsinks etc. I have one of those blue motherboards, but actually think these black sticks complement the design just as much. Either colour is a good choice.
These are a bit more on the premium side of RAM. They do have the performance for the price, but if you are just building an office PC, go cheaper as you don't need the speed or the gigglebits. 8 Gigabytes is even a bit of overkill for gaming where 4 will do nicely. I got these for intense video encoding and 3D graphic design mainly.

If it helps, the relevant parts of my computer are...

ASUS P8P67-M PRO Motherboard (Both RAM and Motherboard are DDR3 only and the Motherboard supports the 1600MHz speed, a match made in heaven.)

Intel i7 2600K (a perfect match for this RAM because of the recommended voltage of 1.5V)

These sticks were used in my first PC build, but worked perfectly and at the rated speeds. I have not tried overclocking as it is potentially damaging in the wrong hands i.e me, but I have read this are designed with overclocking in mind and can be cranked up a fair notch.

I bought mine from the seller KOMPUTERBAY LTD and they arrived in good time and good packaging.

I am happy with these and I know you will be too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Corsair DDR3 memory 12 Nov 2011
Format:Personal Computers
Plugged in and it worked without any hitches. Rated at 7.6 out of 7.9 by Windows Experience Index. I went to create an HD movie using this memory and saw that it was taking 7.4 Gb of memory to produce the video, so I have added another 8Gb of this same memory and this was recognised and in use straight away.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what was required 31 Jan 2012
Format:Personal Computers
Works as intended and overclocks well, i'd recommend this to anyone looking for some good RAM that's flexible when it comes to your system setup.

Only issue was that one of the sticks was faulty upon arrival (this is however an issue with the seller rather than the product itself) and after replacement works fine!

I am sure this is a good product but it was incompatible with my pc and did not work. In all fairness, this is always a potential issue when buying ram for a pc.
