Jeremiah M., Newegg

Imac 5K Retina Issues

Randy S., Newegg
24 February 2015
  • Pros: May work at desired 1600Mz if installed as stand alone memory.
  • Cons: If combined with existing Apple memory modules, all modules now show running at a slower 1333Mz vs the origional 1600Mz. All chips state on the physical chip they are 1600Mz, PC3 (12800). Researched on Mac Rumors and there is discussion this is due to the mismatch in CL latency (these SDRAMs show...

Stable at 1333mhz but not at 1600

Anonymous, Newegg
30 June 2014
  • Pros: Low profile heat sinks
  • Cons: I enabled XMP mode in my bios to get the sticks to run at 1600mhz. The motherboard detected the timings correctly. However, every few hours windows would crash. I disabled XMP to stop the crashes. It's seems the ram I received is not stable at the advertised speed.

Just OK.... Could Have Been Better

craig d., Newegg
9 April 2014
  • Summary: Installed the new Corsair ram and got multiple blue screens and auto reboots almost immediately. Tried one module at a time...one works, the other was no post. I expected a better product from this well known company.
  • Pros: Low Profile, Black Heatspreaders. Aesthetically Pleasing to the Eye.
  • Cons: One of the memory modules was garbage right out of the packaging.

CORSAIR Vengeance Performance 16GB 2x8

David R., Newegg
17 March 2014
  • Summary: I thought paying more would buy speed and reliability. turns out not to be the case.
  • Pros: Installed in 2570p successfully. 9 9 9 24
  • Cons: Not really impressed with performance. not any faster than the factory memory modules. One module died within two weeks of use and had to be RMA'ed. Leads me to believe that they are not really burn in tested as well as claimed by manufacturer. Not worth the extra cost IMHO.

Bad QC

alexander b., Newegg
24 February 2014

  • Pros: High capacity, reasonably fast
  • Cons: Died after Newegg's RMA period ended.

Both sticks died

Brandon L., Newegg
2 December 2013
  • Pros: Worked great - while they worked
  • Cons: First stick died after a month of usage, forgot to look for manufacturer warranties so I just took it out. Now a year later, the other stick has died, leaving me without ram. Will be looking to RMA it back to Corsair. Will post an updated review based on replacement sticks.
