Still Runnin' Strong

  • Summary: Christmas 2012, I was gifted an upgraded processor, which may have aided in the functionality of this RAM, or so I read. The processor I've used since is the "AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb Quad-Core 3.4GHz AM3 HDZ965FBGMBOX" model (Newegg item number N82E16819103727).
  • Pros: FAST stuff. When I use this RAM to create a 4GB RAMDisk & test it with HD Tune Pro, it averages over 3.5GB/s & the test lasts under a second, sometimes completing in close to half a second. Said testing was done with a range of different block sizes; from 1KB(slowest test results) to 64KB, all th...
  • Cons: Can't think of any at the moment. I've been very satisfied with the stability of this system for these last couple years.

Exceptional, to say the least.

  • Summary: I use my system for high end graphical performance & gaming so I'm not too heavy into OC'ing the processor & trying to squeeze everything out of my RAM. They should be pretty easy to do that to tho since they're such a lower voltage than my old pair of DOMINATORS(Corsair) -Frost
  • Pros: I've had these since late March & haven't had a noteworthy problem yet. Put 'em in my new ASRock 990FX Extreme3 back then and my system's been more stable than anything I've experienced so far. Love this stuff! It's beautiful how quick they are with RAMDisk s'ware.
  • Cons: I did notice that the system puts them at 1333 when set to auto OC. My system runs stable at auto OC'ing my CPU from 3.0 to 3.15 (5%) but I think it does that by dropping the RAM to that level instead of the full 1600.

  • Summary: Corsair has a great reputation for rock-solid products. However, they really dropped the ball on this model. I RMA'd back to Newegg, and picked up Corsair Dominator. I really wish these worked, as I really liked the look of the RAM in the Sabertooth X79. Color matches the Board nicely.
  • Pros: I decided I was going to go X79, purchased 2 of these 4 module kits along with an ASUS Sabertooth X79 mobo. -They arrived on time -Set Freq. to 1600 in BIOS, windows installed/booted very fast. -Super nice memory... Until it died
  • Cons: 2 Weeks after my system was completed and running flawlessly, One module died. verified with mdsched.exe, and memtest. 1 Week after that, another module died.

Useless

  • Summary: System ID'd this RAM as only 1333. Weird but not my first time having this problem with Corsair RAM. Fixable by forcing 1600. System started BSODing. Turned back down to 1333 but was still BSODing. Ran mdsched.exe which confirmed bad RAM. Will never buy Corsair again for wasting my time.
  • Pros: Worked flawlessly for 3 hours.
  • Cons: Now doesn't run for longer than 10 minutes
