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.

Some good quality RAM here. Comes in simple yet effective packaging. No leaflets or anything, just your two new sticks of RAM in two individual anti-static plastic shells which are both in a cardboard sleeve. Installed in a breeze and are designed to work well with new Intel Sandy Bridge setups. These are the same as the Cerulean Blue sticks, the blue ones are just to match new Intel motherboards which have blue heatsinks etc. I have one of those blue motherboards, but actually think these black sticks complement the design just as much. Either colour is a good choice.
These are a bit more on the premium side of RAM. They do have the performance for the price, but if you are just building an office PC, go cheaper as you don't need the speed or the gigglebits. 8 Gigabytes is even a bit of overkill for gaming where 4 will do nicely. I got these for intense video encoding and 3D graphic design mainly.

If it helps, the relevant parts of my computer are...

ASUS P8P67-M PRO Motherboard (Both RAM and Motherboard are DDR3 only and the Motherboard supports the 1600MHz speed, a match made in heaven.)

Intel i7 2600K (a perfect match for this RAM because of the recommended voltage of 1.5V)

These sticks were used in my first PC build, but worked perfectly and at the rated speeds. I have not tried overclocking as it is potentially damaging in the wrong hands i.e me, but I have read this are designed with overclocking in mind and can be cranked up a fair notch.

I bought mine from the seller KOMPUTERBAY LTD and they arrived in good time and good packaging.

I am happy with these and I know you will be too!

These Corsair RAM modules are by no means the latest or greatest in Corsair’s lineup. They are, however, a great buy for any enthusiast looking for RAM that can keep up with their CPU.

For many people, DDR3 RAM is as good as they can go because of their motherboard, so all of the advancements in DDR4 memory are more or less irrelevant.

Perhaps the most striking thing about these memory modules is the design. You can see from our photographs that these modules look beastly next to some standard, cheap memory. That design isn’t just for looks, however. Those high surface-area metal fins help dissipate any heat that builds up whilst you’re pushing the memory to its limit.

When it comes to overclocking, these RAM modules really shine. Around the internet, some people claim in their reviews that they’ve been able to reach speeds of 2133MHz, but in my tests I only managed to overclock to 1866MHz, but that could be for any number of reasons not caused by the RAM itself. Regardless, that is still a pretty substantial overclock, especially when considering the price point of these RAM modules.

The CPU I’m running in this test (i7-2700k) is renowned for its overclock potential, and coupled with these RAM modules really makes for a machine to be loved by overclockers.

I’ve been running at this speed for nearly 9 months now, and so far have had no issues with any of the modules, with Memtest being perfectly happy with the configuration.

Whilst these modules may be small, they certainly are mighty. Corsair do of course produce higher capacity modules, but these are very competitively priced and are great for the enthusiast on a budget.
