Not much to say really. These are very nice low-profile modules which work smoothly alongside my AMD FX-8320. For some reason my Asus M5A97 EVO 2.0 motherboard didn't set the settings correctly as per their SPD at 1600MHz, so I had to set these manually, but that's not so much a fault of Corsair as a fault of Asus.
I'd highly recommend these for anyone who wants reliable, low-profile modules which will run a lot cooler than most.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dave2897 Excellent performance and quality
Memory fitted without any issues. All I had to do was make a quick change to the BIOS settings to tell it to pick up the memory config from the memory sticks themselves, and it all worked like a dream. I wasn't familiar with this and a quick call to scan and they were able to tell me what I need to do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Fireblasto Stable, but XMP profile has never worked for me.
I brought this 2x4 GB pack from Ebuyer for £50 two years ago. In that time the XMP profile1 has never worked successfully for me.
Who cares about lower voltages anyway? Chances are if you are buying this RAM you're too cheap to get higher clock speeds, the RAM overclocks beautifully with a higher DRAM voltage no issue when running my BCLK at 102.5 MHz pumping the memory speed up to 820MHz. Not bad, could put the voltage higher to get more out of it but this setting is nice and stable with the "Turbo" setting on my gigabyte board.
Overall has lasted me two years no problem at this speed, can push higher but would rather not as it doesn't have the best heat speader.
