5.0 out of 5 stars Looks and works nice.
Works well so far. OC to 2 GHz and no problems at all. Low price, enough memory to let me switch windows swap file off.

3.0 out of 5 stars memory detected as 1333Mhz, why is that ?
My motherboard Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 detected the memory as 1333Mhz not 1600 MHz as promised.
I have seen on a Corsair forum that the memory needs XMP enabled (overclocking) on BIOS.
Why do I need to OC a 1600 MHz memory to get it work from 1333MHz to the standard speed 1600MHz.
I will follow up with Corsair maybe there is a good explanation for...

This review is from: Corsair CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9 Vengeance 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3 1600 Mhz CL9 XMP Performance Desktop Memory Kit Black (Personal Computers)

I have the feeling that I bought something which it does not exactly what it says on the tin:

XMP technology is only available for Intel processors not AMD so that was a red herring
Corsair explains on their forums that the issue I have is actually caused by AMD not being able to see the memory properly.
I will see why Asus listed this memory as compatible for Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 if they don't fully support the memory configuration.
They may have a good explanation. I'll let you know.

This review is from: Corsair CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9 Vengeance 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3 1600 Mhz CL9 XMP Performance Desktop Memory Kit Black (Personal Computers)
Does exactly what it needs to, great performance great looking and of course you know its a quality product with the corsair badge on it.
If you are not looking at getting the absolute best memory modules for your build you don't need to buy any other product than this, they will give you the quality you need for a great price.

Not much to say: Does was it says it does. Had to change voltage on mobo so system read the RAM at correct speed, that was a mobo issue though.
