5 out of 5 eggs790i Ultra SLI

Pros: This is the ticket to running 8GB of ram on a 790i Ultra SLI mobo. Trying to run a 2GBx2x4 to get 8GB of ram on this board is very problematic with getting the timings just right. Some games don't like the timings and you have to play with them again.
I installed these in dimm0 & 2, I used the factory timing only so far 9-10-9-27-2T. I ran MemTest64 Deluxe iso Ver. 4.0r1 it passed 1000% thorough test @1833MHz with 1.65v
I wish I had stumbled across these ram sticks before I tried running 4x2GB sticks, the memory controller on the board doesn't like 4 sticks and OCing, BUT using 2x4GB to get 8GB works like a champ with excellent OCing results.
Using a QX9770 I was able to oc to 4.2GHz on Air without adjusting any timings.
Using a Q9650 I was able to oc to 4GHz on Air without adjusting any timings.
I ran this Ram linked & sync'd to the FSB with P1 & P2 on *auto*. with 1.65v on the Ram.
When I have some more free time I will tighten up all the ram timings and get it to run a little better.
For out of the box performance and getting 8GB on the 790i Ultra SLI mobo to run flawlessly, this is one of the best bets out there! Buy it now before their gone.

Cons: None so far...

Other Thoughts: If you have a 790i Ultra SLI mobo and want 8GB of ram, run these 2 sticks and save yourself a lot of time and effort trying to run 4x2GB sticks and trying to oc while pulling your hair out...
BTW remember the old Corsair dominator fans(3 fan setup)?
This 2 fan setup actually moves a fair amount of air and works, another pleasant surprise with this Ram package.
This rig's parts:
QX9770 @4.2GHz
This Ram with the fan
2 Evga GTX580 blackops in SLI OC'd 1GHz core
Creative Sound Blaster XFi Fatal1ty titanium PCIe with control module
2 WD Raptors 1TB in raid0=2TB
PC Power & Cooling 1200watt turbo cool
Thermaltake SwordM case with 12 Scythe fans(very loud) on 3 Scythe control modules with temp sensors
This old rig still plays everything on Ultra or max settings on all games...

4 out of 5 eggsGood Ram / Garbage cooler

Pros: Ram works as advertised. Never had an issue. Very speedy, works great.

Cons: Cooler worked great for a few months, then a ball bearing began to buzz and hum upon first boot in the day and continued the very loud noise until it warmed up.

Other Thoughts: I just took off the coolers because it drove me nuts, either they need to up the quality, or make it cheaper and not bundle them.

5 out of 5 eggsSB-E Gold.

Pros: -Corsair quality, at a reasonable price.
-Heat sinks are heavy, and nice looking.
-Comes with a phenomenal warranty, and a good company backing said warranty.
-Over clocks higher with a little tinkering on the timings.
-Got my two kits on a RIVE, and a 3930K up to 2300Mhz at @ 1.68V, 10-11-11-29.

Cons: Didn't buy another 16GB (or two kits). I wish the voltages were at 1.5V so you could push them up higher to get those stupidly high memory clocks (given your IMC can handle it, and your board is capable of holding such clocks).

Other Thoughts: I was surprised by this kit, honestly. I've usually thought that Corsair products were the overrated "Premium" products, but they really are. They blend in perfectly with my RIVE, and dual reference 7970's. Not too much red.

They're also compatible for EK memory blocks without removing the whole heat spreader for those who are interested in going all out in a WC loop in the near future.

5 out of 5 eggsTheir Grrreat

Pros: Nice set. They worked on my EVGA 790i FTW mobo without a hitch. Overclocks well, just simply the best of on its class.

Cons: I have another 4GB (4 year OLD) set of this RAM but, unfortunately 4 stick wont work on this mobo... Stays on an endless POST cycle. Wont enter the BIOS but the POST screen does comes up. But that's fine

Other Thoughts: I have an older build and I'm trying to maxlife it. It sill works well and overclocks like a charm. I like the quality of Cosair so far never had an y problems w/ any of there stuff - Their PSU and SSD Force GT series are great

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Performance

Pros: This memory brought life back into my 790i motherboard.
It has allowed me to overclock my Q9550 to 3.8ghz,

Cons: This is my motherboards fault with the 790i limitations, but I wish I could add 2 more :(

Other Thoughts: Memtest passed twice with zero errors I am running them at 1800mhz stable for a whole 1ghz increase on my cpu.
I boosted my framerate in Crysis 3 about 10. I definitely recommend this RAM.
