Summary: Had a defective chip from the very start which can happen to anyone other than the time it took to locate the problem Corsair was very quick to send a return authorization no. and the time to send it to them and get the replacement was just about a week. So am very please with the way they handled the warranty. Fast and painless.
Nice sticks, not designed for Haswell but will work
18 February 2014
Summary: Good product, I will enjoy the lifetime warranty... But I think I ordered a newer set as this model is over 3 years old and designed for sandy/ivy bridge support... These modules work with the 4th gen Haswell, but I get error 51 which gigabyte rep says this is perfectly fine as long as the board boots with no problems.
Summary: I decided to build my own computer and chose 2 Corsair Vengeance 16GB low profile modules (32GB total) because of an online recommendation. I've had the computer now for over a year and, man, it's fast. If low profile is what you need, without compromising performance, this is it.
Summary: I installed this memory in a brand new ASUS BM1AE Desktop to upgrade the factory 4GB to 16GB. It works great in dual channel mode. It raised the Win7 Experience Index from 5.9 to 7.6 in the memory category. The memory sticks are low profile so they avoided conflicts with internal wiring. The sticks also have a nice metal blue casing. The computer has been working flawlessly since installation of the memory, about 2 months so far.
