Do NOT Buy

Pros: None.

Cons: The RAM did work somewhat, but after playing a game or doing any video editing for an hour or so, the computer would begin artifacting and eventually shut down. Replaced most of the parts in my newly built machine, and discovered that the RAM was the issue. Go with Kingston. They rule.

no complaints

Pros: I've been using the same 4 sticks (8GB) of this memory for just shy of two years on two different MoBos and I haven't had any trouble with them. They work at the capacity and speed advertised and I haven't had any system crashes that I didn't eventually trace to some other component.

Cons: none

Very good RAM

Pros: Good price, works as advertised in my Gigabyte EP45-UDR3 with E7500. Clocked them at 1066 & 1333 with no crashes or lockups.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Need 4 Gigs more so I'll be ordering another set.

Amptek

Pros: Cheap[ as heck, easily available...

Cons: Junk, they often are bad right out of the package, when they do fire up they usually don't last very long. I bought a half-dozen pairs of these for system builds and had to return them to Corsair for replacements every time I turned around! My customers always held ME accountable to do all the emailing and shipping etc. and running back and forth to pick them up and replace them in the computers...sometimes I had to take memory out of my own personal system for them to use in the meantime....sometimes even the warranty replacements came dead !!! One set I had to return THREE TIMES, and finally had to ask for a different model.

Other Thoughts: Avoid this stuff like the plague, I've been a tech for almost 20 years and I have NEVER seen ANY kind of memory as bad as this stuff. Don't waste your time on it. If you get a pair that work you should go buy a lottery ticket IMMEDIATELY because THAT will be your LUCKIEST DAY ! !

NOT Stable @ 1066

Pros: Cheap.
Rock Solid @ 800 5-5-5-18

Cons: Will NOT pass MEMTEST or run stably enough to install Ubuntu or XP @ 1066

Other Thoughts: YES I bumped my voltage to 2.1 and read ALL the detailed specs/troubleshooting/instructions on Corsair's website about this ram BEFORE trying MANY times to get it to run stably @ 1066. It simply will not do it. Test fails at random locations @ 1066 and the ram is already running very hot to the touch @ 2.1v. I'm not going to bump it beyond voltage spec to try and get stability out of it @ 1066.

But if I can run it ALL DAY @ 800 on 1.9v... stable, solid as a rock at that speed.

Corsair

Pros: Great ram, happy customer. I always buy CORSAIR.

Cons: This ram worked great for 3 months, then 1 stick went out and my pc wouldn't boot. I sent it back to corsair and got new sticks for free. Everything has been fine since. Going on 1 and half years.

Other Thoughts: Corsair is great.
