Great Stuff

John P., Newegg
1 June 2015
  • Summary: Have used Corsair ram almost exclusively for several years now. Tried Patriot, and for a long time used Crucial; howerver both had problems that I have never encountered with Corsair. Corsair customer service is excellent, but to be fair Crucial's is at least as good, but Patriots was just o.k.
  • Pros: Stable, high quality, good CAS for 1.5V. If you are into it it overclocks. Using the XMS in two gaming multi/use and gaming computers, and have used the XMS in both DDR2 and DDR3 versions. Using their Vengeance in my gaming PC.
  • Cons: None really; just a reminder that EVERY manufacture has parts that occasionally fail, even Corsair.

Works Good

Chris T., Newegg
17 June 2013
  • Summary: My first shipment was delivered via USPS but it was not in my hands. Someone (post man, apartment building office?) took it. Newegg replacement it for me and this enabled me to go from 16 GB (from 24 on an X58) to 32GB.
  • Pros: It was still available to match my other 6 sticks from my 1366.
  • Cons: The only con was that the revision 5.1 would be seen as 1333 on an x79 with XMP Profiles 1 & 2. On these (revision 5.2) Profile 1 is only available, which is good, but I just wished they would all show up as 1600 without the XMP

Good value

Kaylore "kaylore", Amazon

  • Summary: For what I needed this for (breathing a little bit more life into an old computer) this is what the doctor ordered. They came in well packaged and worked as I needed them to. Still running strong as well.

Corsair XMS3

Steven S., Newegg
6 May 2013
  • Summary: Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. I will not buy Corsair memory again until I hear their quality control has significantly improved.
  • Pros: Can get a good price for the RAM capacity and speed. Lifetime warranty for RMA returns.
  • Cons: Had two different XMS3 sticks go bad on me over the past 8 months, causing computer crashes (usually when computer went into screen saver mode). Was able to diagnose both times using BurnIn Test (read errors), to narrow down to which sticks went bad. Had to pay postage for RMA returns

good for compact mini ITX build

Nathan, Amazon
6 May 2013
  • Summary: good quality, ddr3-1600 as advertised, once a faulty motherboard was replaced chose these for the lower profile heat spreaders, since I was building in a small case (coolermaster elite 120). didn't need the gaudy anodized fins you see on many out there

Just to mention compatibility

SOSTENES L., Newegg
20 April 2013
  • Summary: Need to play swap my DDR3 around to different computers so I didn't have to return. A little of a headache but at least I don't have to return anything.
  • Pros: Works with Asus M4A88TD-M/usb3, did have to update Bios.
  • Cons: Not compatible w/ Gigabyte Motherboard GA-H55M-UDsH v1.0. Upgraded bios to F11, latest as of 4/19/2013
