5 out of 5 eggsGreat with a good motherboard

Pros: Fast, reliable, runs at decent temps. Heat sinks underneath large CPU air coolers.

Cons: Expensive, requires good hardware to function properly.

Other Thoughts: Thinking I might try to do some future-proofing toward my next big overhaul, I went ahead and bought two of these sets and put my old RAM in an HTPC build I was putting together a couple of years back. I originally installed this in an older (LGA 775) motherboard and ended up running it at a stable 1333mhz with timing in the 7s. Since it was an older setup, I wasn't that concerned or surprised when I couldn't get it to hit advertised speeds.

After upgrading to the GA-Z87x-OC, I set the BIOS to advertised speeds and timing and all four sticks are running perfectly. Fast, easy, stable, reliable, fits under my cooler, can't really ask for more.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Memory, Nice and Fast

Pros: Corsair XMS - need I say more?
Fast, reliable, looks pretty, heat spreader is low profile so it doesn't impede airflow for my aftermarket Cooler Master HyperTX2 heatsink

Cons: I got nothing

Other Thoughts: Not the fastest horse in the race these days, but with faster memory coming out every few months what can you do?
I would recommend this memory to any and everyone!

5 out of 5 eggsDo your Research FIRST people...

Pros: Nice dual channel kit, runs good (now, see cons)

Cons: Initially, CPU-z reported the it had defaulted to 1066Mhz with 7-7-7-24 timings, command rate 1t w/ 1.5V. Changed timings to 9-10-9-27 and added 0.150V for a total of 1.65V and it runs at 1866Mhz (need to OC more for the full 2000)

Other Thoughts: Memory is sold as what it's highest successful speed, but 9/10 times you will need to enter BIOS and manually adjust timings and voltage to reach that. Read a lot if you are unfamiliar with OCing before trying anything, it's not my fault if you break anything.

I AM NOT ENCOURAGING ANYONE TO OVERCLOCK; Just saying how I got it to work as advertised. I do not recommend pushing it PAST it's manufacturer recommended limitations.

2 out of 5 eggsLetdown

Pros: It at least works. And I haven't heard complaints from the Intel Crowd. Was able to get good timings at low frequencies.

Cons: I have been completely unable to get up to the speeds Corsair claims. With some work I've got it running at 1333, and at much worse timings than were claimed in the specs. So, with some work, about half the performance that I paid for. Disapointing, will be considering trying the mushkins or Crucials, which are cheaper up to the same price, and don't seem to have the problem.

Other Thoughts: I'll be contacting Corsair, and maybe they'll have some magic trick to fix my problem. But it seems people running AMD systems have been having problems with these. Not sure why, but they're supposed to work with it. Unless Corsair has something to help me out, I have to say this has hurt their reputation with me. A little shy of claimed performance is one thing, but I'm way under right now, and I'm not happy.

5 out of 5 eggsEdit

Pros: I posted that review that mentioned RAM timings of CL 2, it turns out this was an error in CPU-Z the program I was looking at for timings. The actual timings I have are 7-7-7-20 at 4.1GHz CPU and 1.15Ghz memory.

Don't know what I was thinking, but still this memory feels fast to me even with more reasonable numbers for latency.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This memory is beef for my AMD processor. Right now my Zambezi is overclocked from 3.6GHz to a bit over 4GHz and the memory is only running at like 1066MHz. Lots and lots of room for upgrades to future processors running much faster.

Having it only run at 1066 the SPD puts it at CL 2 tRCD16 tRP 2 tRAS 22. Talk about low latency, CAS 2 is sweet. Me likey. Definite props for them putting in aggressive timings for lower speeds.

I am a huge fan of the Corsair quality. Probably like my 4th set of XMS sticks over the years and have never had a problem with any of them yet overclocked and had the timings pretty tight.

Cons: The looks could use a bit of work. The Vengeance ones look cooler but these XMS3 sticks dont have heat spreaders that stick up too far or anything (the Vengeance line looks good but I have to wonder about clearance sometmes). I have a closed case without a window so this doesnt matter much to me but it could to some people with the case mods.

Other Thoughts: I could have gone with cheaper sticks and slower sticks, but this is a bit futureproof and OC friendly being so fast; and not having to RMA sticks is worth it in the long run. Some other good makers but I like Corsair the best because of the XMS sticks.

2 out of 5 eggsso-so

Pros: I really Dont have any pro to be honest since newegg said it worked with amd.. but seems like it doesnt

Cons: Newegg said in the features it would work for AMD I have gigabyte 990fxa UD3 and the Dram Freq. = 537.34mhz x 2 =1066 or whatever.. far from 2000mhz and seems slow as hell..

Other Thoughts: From now I will be using the .pdf for the gigabyte 990fxa UD3 for compatible ram..

5 out of 5 eggsSolid

Pros: Bought this set to mix with another XMS set that is now deactivated. The set was 2x4gb, 1600mhz, 1.65v with 7-8-7-20 timings. This set, when mixed with the other matches everythang perfectly. Everythang scaled down to match my other ram's every spec.

Great for using ramdisk.

Cons: Price. The XMS series has always been highly priced when compared to competing products like Mushkin Redline.

For half the price anybody can get 2x4gb (8) but with loser timings. Is the price worth it? I paid for it so I guess I'm the sucker.

Other Thoughts: I had the original XMS series, not even DDR2, and it was expensive then, but I have always loved the performance, and overclocking abilities.

I had this overclocked along with my other set 44mhz, but bcuz they were mixed sets, I didn't want to take a chance and mess something up, so I backed it down to stock speed.

To have low profile heat sinks, fast speed, overclocking capabilties, wide variety of speeds and voltages to switch to, along with a lifetime warranty, I guess these are worth the price.

Since my other ram has been deactivated I have no regrets buying this.
