Well firstly they arrived well packaged and each memory stick came in it's own little plastic case for added safety. Installation is very easy and simple, simply ensure the computer is turned off at the mains and before you touch anything ensure you have grounded yourself so as to remove any static electricity from you as static kills computer components. A simply way to do this if you don't have an antistatic wristband is to touch any grounded metal object, a metal tap on the bathroom sink usual does the job and ensure A) you don't get wet and B) you check you are static free once in every while.

This Memory by Corsair is part of their "enthusiasts" range so it's meant for Gamers and people who take their computers seriously, there are heat spreader fins which do protrude quite a way so please check your CPU fan does not overhang any Memory slots as you will struggle to install the RAM. While not essential at standard clock rates the heat spreaders do look good and for anyone that likes to show off the inside of their case (as I do from time to time) they do look impressive, if anything they will guard against any excessive heat produced although i have yet to have a problem with any memory sticks in that regard over the past 5 years.

As will all RAM, the installation process is very easy (plug and play), simply ensure the clips either side of the free memory slots are open and push the memory firmly into the slots (they only go one way so match up the little groove underneath). You should hear a click which indicates the clips have popped back into place which locks the memory in the slots.

Colour Name: BlackSize: 8GB (2x4GB) 1600Mhz Verified Purchase
I wanted the best (I could afford), so, I bought Corsair 'Vengeance' DDR3 @ 1600Mhz, I always prefer to buy from Amazon anyway, as, is there is a problem at any time, they WILL help sort it out, as I have discoverd in the past.

I didn't need a full 16Gb of DDR3 memory really, as I already had 12Gb 1333Mhz already fitted, but, as I didn't want to 'mix and match' I bought the maximum my motherboard would support, this was 16Gb at 1600Mhz, that's 4 x 4Gb modules..... 2 packets of 2 units!

Due to Xmas rush no doubt, the memory did take a full week to arrive, but, it was worth the wait.

You can tell the second you open the packet, it's quality, full stop, beautiful. Very easy to fit, remember, these are matched pairs, so, install each pair (if your bought more than one pair) into same coloured slots, as, it's dual timing, i.e., DDR(x) dual data rate!

Another pointer that might be useful, when I installed mine, it was still running (at the old settings) of 1333Mhz after fitting and several re-boots, .... going into BIOS, it was easy to alter the timing to 1600Mhz I discovered, I presumed it would auto sense the new faster RAM, not the case, although, your motherboard might be different, mine is Asus M4A88TD-V EVO USB3.

There are many many cheaper types of DDR3 memory modules out there now, many with strange obsecure makers names, probably rebranded, but, if you want reliability, and quality, it's better to pay, just that little bit more and get something you know will perform and last ...........

Looks good, smells good, tastes good, feels good, feels good all over my body, RAM, sturdy RAM, quality RAM, value for money RAM. Raaaam.

On a serious note, I can't fault this. Came quickly, arrived in good nick, very sturdy body (the heatsink looks sexy and also acts as an anti static shield of sorts), was very easy to insert. I didn't have to change anything in the BIOS, just crammed it in and away I went.

Definitely recommend this for gaming systems or anything intensive like video production. Very good bit of kit, and very efficient, even without overclocking, though it can be overclocked well too.

For the price, this is extremely good value.

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.

I bought this item and it works just as it says. In the end, it's just RAM and should just "work".

By the way, if you own an AMD Bulldozer, be warned: AMD DOES NOT support 1866Mhz natively. You will need to change the settings on your BIOS to get its full speed.

I wasn't aware of that untill I noticed that my RAM clock was 1333. I contacted Corsair and they replied very quickly with a link to AMD's website, showing the VERY SMALL print.

But the guys at Corsair were very helpful and emailed me the clock, latency and etc so I got it to 1866 as it should be.

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.
