Value and performance collide!
on 13 January 2012
I brought two sets of this 2x4GB memory for my new i5-2500k/Asus P8Z68-V PRO GEN3/Prolimatech Megahalems build and it's been perfect for me. Like a previous reviewer CAS says, the BIOS by default sets the memory speed to 1333 and you have to manually bump it to 1600. But after doing this I've had absolutely no problems.
I have to be honest, and say that getting 16 GB was probably overkill, but in a year or three maybe I will be using this memory so I've saved myself having to source similar memory modules and having to install them at some point in the future. But it's nice to have 16 GB anyway :-)
Other memory sticks have heat-sinks on with sticky up bits and all kinds of needless bling. This memory is low profile so fits under my heat-sink's fan and delivers the stability and performance I've come to expect from Corsair.
