3.0 out of 5 stars One module failed after just a year and a half..., 29 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 Vengeance 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) DDR3 1600 MHz CL9 XMP Performance Desktop Memory Kit - Black (Personal Computers)
Don't get me wrong this ram is very good! especially when I first bought them, now I only have the one 4gb module in my rig, along with my GTX 560, i5 2500k, Asus Z68-VPro Mobo and all is good, still plays anything I throw at it! However I have noticed a slight drop in fps in battlefield 3 apart from that all good.

One day I booted my pc up, to encounter constant BSOD's while on idle (not doing anything), which is a very unlikely event in Windows 7 lol, so I knew it wasn't software related, and most likely hardware related. Using my initiative I could only assume it was a sign of bad ram, as that's usually what causes such occurences. So I ran memtest86 on both modules first and it found multiple errors :( I knew either both sticks were dead or one of them (I was lucky it was only one) so I ran memtest86 again this time with only one of them in, and it found no errors so I knew the one I took out was completely kaput.

Nonetheless, I should call Corsair up and ask them for a replacement because a year and a bit is simply unnacceptable!! Or should I call Amazon up for a replacement, I dunno lol what do you guys/girls think I should do? The product details state that this has a 10 year Warranty? Has anyone else encountered this issue and had it resolved? please let me know.

Much appreciated,

Big K
