Summary: I purchased 2 sets of Corsair Dominator 12GB (3x4GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory to help power a gaming computer I was building. Along with an ASUS motherboard and a Intel I7 CPU I can play all but the newest games with no slowdown .
Summary: Memory works fine but won't run at 1600 MHz, prior to installing this I had 6 (3X2GB) of Corsair XMS that ran flawlessly at 1600. I've played with MB settings and voltages but in the end I just decided to run it at the lower clock speed. This is on an older GA-X58A-UD5 MB. I'm not sure if the issue is with the RAM or the MB but since the cheaper Corsair has run find for 4 years I'm thinking it could be the RAM.
Summary: My motherboard is a nearly 4 year old Asus P6X58D Premium which I wanted to upgrade before splurging on a brand new build next year. When I originally built this system in 2011 I only got 6GB of RAM thinking that would be more than enough. As a serious gamer, I should've known better.
Summary: I have (what I consider) a 'higher end mid-range computer'. It's built around an EVGA X58 SLI3 Edition mobo. (Model# 131 GT E767.) The motherboard specifications require DDR3, 1600 Mhz, memory and has 6 DIMM slots to support up to 24 Gb of RAM. After opening the case and confirming the specifications on the existing 6 Gb of memory, and accessabilty, and also checking the voltage requirements, I found the perfect replacement/upgrade would be 3 sticks of 4 Gb each, DDR3,...
