A cautionary note
on 28 July 2015
OK first off.. Corsair make great chips and I have used the XMS3 range in previous upgrades with no issues.
This time however, I have encountered numerous problems regarding this chip and my system (AMD i3 processor firstname.lastname@example.orgGhz running MS win7 home), have tried running it on it's own with no other XMS3s in the board and got ... nothing system went dead, whilst when running with the other chips installed .. got blue screen of death and slumberous error messages.
It is possible that I may have got a rogue chip (Nb I made sure that the chip matched my clock speed of my processor and other chips too) but I would advise caution when using this particular model chip.
Otherwise as stated Corsair do make great products.
