Summary: Chose it because I wanted high performance memory for gaming. I also wanted to upgrade my new build to 32 GB od ram. Corsair matches all their Ram so it works well together. In a review, I saw that when one person had a problem with one stick of the Ram, they suggested that it would be best if they replaced all of the sticks. I thought that was an excellent suggestion on their part.
Summary: Bill Gates once stated, "No one should need more than 256K of memory." Boy! Was he off the mark! I will be going for the max of 64GB of memory on the newly acquired motherboard. Along with an SSD, this should do the trick of high-speed image making with Photoshop and NIK Software.
Summary: I bought this memory because it was on my motherboard's hardware compatibility list and it met the specifications listed for the CPU. I've run Memtest86+ and Prime95 with this memory and it has performed flawlessly. I will definitely consider Corsair memory for future needs.
Summary: I should not hold it against the manufacturer/seller of this RAM, as this was partially my fault. I bought it for my Dell XPS 8700 as an upgrade to existing RAM. The system board for this tower said that it supports RAM of up to 1660 MHz. That is why I chose this set. Unfortunately, a cheaply designed Dell BIOS/EIFI does not come with a setting to change or adjust RAM speed, and thus it defaulted to only 1330 MHz.
Summary: It's memory. Installed it. Booted PC. Tinkered in BIOS slightly. It worked. Pretty simple/basic. In theory I suppose that this should be another 1/5 rating type of product, i.e. 1 for phail, 5 for it works, but in this case while I like I'm knocking it for not quite being the lowest latency, etc. and that's how I'm calling this.
