Rated 5 out of 5 by DomB Best performance for unoverclocked Haswell
For a Haswell S1150, if you keep with standard clock speeds, 1600MHz dual channel is the fastest configuration. This memory, able to do that at a relatively low latency of 9-9-9-24 at the typical 1.5V is a great buy. On my Gigabyte motherboard, I had to enable XMP profiles in the UEFI config (BIOS replacement) to get it to run at full speed, but that was enough; no manual adjustment required.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ziggomatic Good ram
This is very good ram that has worked perfectly since I got it. It runs flawlessly at its rated speeds and voltage.
Since it is high profile ram, it's worth mentioning to prospective buyers that it may get in the way of larger cpu heatsinks. That said, I am using a closed loop water cooler so I don't have any problems with it.
Scan's service was excellent - my package arrived promptly and securely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by roughavoc It's RAM
RAM is pretty much all the same today, I just liked the heat spreader on this so I picked it up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by The100TonGun No problems so far, all smooth sailing
I've given this product perfects all-round as it does the job and hasn't failed on me yet (I will update if it does). Good product, feels sturdy and well made and was fairly inexpensive. I would recommend this RAM to anyone looking to build their first gaming PC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stuart Already had 8 GB installed so as I was doubling RAM, no vast increase in performance. Multitasking performance improved

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gary Solid performance budget despite the (overly) flashy looks. Past experience has shown me that Corsair's warranty is solid in the rare event anything goes wrong.
Truly daft heat spreaders...

Rated 5 out of 5 by PaulF Fast & so far reliable - > 1 year since I installed first pair. I subsequently added another pair with little noticeable difference in speed; so 8GB seems to be sufficient for an Intel i-3 2100 being used for general household computing.
