First Class Memory Kit,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Corsair CML16GX3M2A1600C10 Vengeance Low Profile 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 Mhz CL10 XMP Performance Desktop Memory Kit Black (Personal Computers)
I used this 16GB memory kit with Gigabyte Z77X-D3H Motherboard and it performs superbly by attaining the maximum WEI of 7.9 for memory rating. I've had a bit of experience with another memory kit just before this - Corsair CMX16GX3M2A1600C11 XMS 16GB 1600MHz CL11 DDR3 Memory Stick - which only performs the 1600Mhz clock rate at 1.65V rather than the advertised 1.5V. As for the significance of 1.5V vs 1.65V, see my review of Corsair CMX16GX3M2A1600C11 XMS 16GB 1600MHz CL11 DDR3 Memory Stick.
This memory kit achieves the same clock rate at 1.5V which is compatible with new generation Intel processors, and also requires minimal tweaking for extreme performance - thanks to the Extreme Memory Profile or XMS which is supported by almost all modern BIOS firmware. Amazon kindly exchanged the CMX16GX3M2A1600C11 for this memory kit and thank you!
This is a memory kit I've no reservation to recommend.
