Very solid memory
5 Star Review   By member FormerFirebirdOwner - Sep 24, 2005   

Strengths: Very good price, very reliable, Corsair name brand

Weakness: none that I know of

I purchased this stick of memory to update my computer from 512MB to 1GB. What a difference it made! My first stick of RAM was from Buffalo, and since I couldn't find any more of that, I choose Corsair. I was happy with a stick of their memory I bought for a computer I built for my mother about 2 months earlier. Since Buffalo and Corsair memory OC differently, I can't OC the memory with both in, so I don't really know how this OCs. Funny story though, when I first put it in and started the machine, it got to Windows screen and restarted and restarted. After 10-15 minutes of worry, I remembered that I still had memory settings OCed for the Buffalo. Put it back to normal settings (2.5-3-3-8) and it booted the first time. Very happy customer!

2 Star Review   By member wcw - Jan 20, 2005   

Strengths: Price, latency and timing performance, firm reputation, lifetime warranty.

Weakness: Memtest86 error at consistent address in one of two sticks when testing both together in Athlon 64 rig.

Price is great, just above bottom-of-the-barrel sticks and with good 2.5-3-3-7 timings instead of the 3-4-4-8's you otherwise see. The firm reputation is good, so you'd probably be able to cash in the lifetime warranty should you need. The downside is that while each of the two sticks I bought tested perfectly alone, with both together in the same AMD64 setup, memtest86 threw an error in Test 6 [for data-sensitive errors] in one of the two sticks regardless of DIMM slot. The error would not go away even with relaxed timings (e.g., 3-4-4-10) or underclocking (I tried 100 MHz rather than the rated 200 MHz -- and got the same error). I'm returning both sticks for a refund rather than an exchange, since I'd rather not risk another hard-to-test interaction. For all I know it's the motherboard, but I'd rather not risk it. Since I would not purchase again, it's a two-star rating, but I don't think this is really that bad a review. The numbers are all good, each sticks runs like a champ alone even under hours of memtest86, and since I didn't buy the two sticks in a kit (which I probably should have), I can't expect Corsair to have tested all possible sticks for this weird interaction error. Still, buyer beware. If you're buying two sticks to run together, consider buying the kit instead.

5 Star Review   By member glwinc - Dec 11, 2004   

Strengths: Speed (latency 2.5CAS), price. Good for dual channel.

Weakness: No heat spreader, and sometimes freezes when overclocked.

Excellent RAM - very fast. I actually over clocked mine to 442 MHz, but when I did, it seemed to freeze more than normal, so I put it back. I really wish this came with a heat spreader - maybe if it had one, it wouldn't freeze when overclocked. I will be getting a spreader. Excellent overall. ***Update*** I got a heat spreader, and my system has never been more stable. Would definitely buy again.

4 Star Review   By member wrhovland - Sep 15, 2004   

Strengths: Great price / performance ratio. Quality, performance name brand. LIFETIME warranty.

Weakness: Not an over-clocker's product (not really a weakness)

PC3200 RAM with decent timings 'out of the box' typically will run 30 to 50% more money. Corsair is know for it's performance and dependability. Stability is great at rated speeds, but I wouldn't advise overlcocking this RAM. For those of you inclined to get more speed than rated from stuff, pay a bit more for special RAM and enjoy yourselves. But for those of us who's budget vs. performance does not include burning up parts, this is a great value. Make that Value with a capital V. Price vs. performance and this RAM rates 8 of 10! Overclockers might rate it around a 5 of 10. But for the price, its a definite winner.

Strengths: worked for me! was very glad. compatible with older (slower stated DDR)mobos - Intel845 in emachines T2885 and Soyo K7VME Via400

Weakness: none---I nailed 4 of 'em at last months low price wars!

I am new to building /upgrading PCs, but i have responsibly studied a lot all summer in order to justify any upcoming disaster! I wanted to buy many parts that would actually be useable in a "real build"...which will be my 3rd and 4th PC builds using XP3000 Barton and P4 Prescott 3Ghz. The Emachines was bought from B.Buy in Jun. Celeron 2.8, They said it had qty 2 PC2100/2700 256Mb, upgradeable to 1G...so I thought 2 sticks wasted. Well, glad I learned to get independent after this, my LAST computer purchase...will build from now! Bought 1 PNY PC27 512 to add and cut the E-m case sticker, found qty 1 Samsung PC27 512, woohu. This I845GVSR doesnt have correlating rev.# compared to Intel's data...Intel max DDR 1G @ PC27, but the purchased Corsair works fine. BlahBlah for a reason...to share compatibility experiments with others/ I am going to check with E-m about Board Rev. # and whether it will take a 1M cache 533Mhz Prescott (like some rev. of thos MB do)...so maybe the B.Buy E-m wasnt a waste of money, can upgrade to a P4C. SOYO K7VME board: Using Thunderbird 900Mhz for "mule", and then XP2400 Thouroughbred for cooling flow experiments: Also the Corsair worked in the Soyo MB, 400 chipset...some places I've read that 400 ch-set "unofficially supports PC3200, but a JEDEC convention couldnt approve a formal specification. The Soyo BIOS let me fool around w/memeory timings, until I fouled something up and had to reset to defaults, (success) so even more good experiences. SHIPPING EXPERIENCES: Important. 1st buy was from zee competition, was horrified they shipped the Corsair blister pack in only a bubble envelope. 2nd was from the "shipping Champ" the Corsair Blister paks were in a small sturdy box (I'll save!), which was then swimming in enough peanuts for XMas in a big box -- makes me =) :D I look fwd to another pair of this same Corsair to put in a SOYO 865 chipset intel MoBO, and will post a short report if of any use...am sure it RAM will be put to full use by 200FSB this time!

Strengths: specification/price + a brand name

Weakness: could not find any

Just note there are two versions of this RAM with around the same price but this one has better latency. (see model numbers) I still believe that throwing in more RAM substitutes for difference in levels of RAMs. i.e. put your money in buying more RAM than in an expensive one.

5 Star Review   By member brivers - Aug 19, 2004   

Strengths: Cheap, reliable

Weakness: Not as fast as some memory.

I have owned Corsair ValueSelect Memory for one year and have had no hiccups or compatiblility problems. This is great RAM if you're not looking for the absolute fastest stuff out there (however, this stuff isn't exactly slow - it's faster than a lot of the more expensive stuff). I'd highly recommend this to any enthusiast.

4 Star Review   By member rsx - Aug 13, 2004   

Strengths: Low 2.5 CAS latency(Good performance) Compatibility

Weakness: No heat spreader

I bought this RAM for my first Athlon 64 3000+ system, paired with a generic OEM board which had no overclocking settings whatsoever. But I had no problems runing it with that setup. I recently got my second AMD64 system(planed to give first one to brother-in-law) with 3200+ on MSI Neo Platinum and this stick ran well with that board also. Even though this stick overclocks well, it couldn't out run the GeIL which I got for the second system. I'm thinking the heat-spreader on the GeIL may have something to do with it. Overall, very satisfied with the purchase and would recommend it to anyone.

5 Star Review   By member Clownboat - Aug 12, 2004   

Strengths: good timings, can handle at least modest overclocking if not more, great for dual-channel, reliable

Weakness: considering it's value RAM, none really

I bought two sticks of this stuff for my rig and my friend bought two sticks for his at around the same time. Trust me, this stuff is solid, and it's blazing in a dual-channel configuration (like my friend has). I can actually run Prime95 now for as long as I want, whereas my old Kingston ValueRAm DDR333 crapped out after about an hour. My mobo wanted to run this stuff at 2.5-3-3-8 T2 timings, even though my friend's system immediately set it at 2.5-3-3-7. So I just went into BIOS and turned it to 2.5-3-3-7 T1, and it still works flawlessly. If you don't have $500 to spend on RAM, this is THE stuff to get.

4 Star Review   By member slamkal - Jul 23, 2004   

Strengths: powered right up, worked with different memory vendor in dual channel DDR mode on Nforce2 Ultra 400, 2.5-4-4-8 settings through SPD

Weakness: 2X the number of chips, I don't know if this is a weakness however they probably will run warmer

This is my first experience with Corsair memory. The bios posted and correctly identified the memory, automatically set the memory bus to 400MHz. I ran memtest as long as I could stand it (1GB is a lot of memory to test) and am satisifed it works in my Nforce2 system. Since then I have been running this computer for the past few days with no crashes, reboots, etc. Good job Corsair.

5 Star Review   By member sellmen - Jun 12, 2004   

Strengths: Rock-solid stable, reasonable price

Weakness: Not low latency

This RAM is from Corsair's value line; it runs at CAS2.5 instead of CAS2 (XMS line). As a result, it is about 60% cheaper than the XMS line, with the performance difference being unnoticeable. Unless you are a serious overclocker, save some money and buy this instead of Corsair XMS RAM. I have used this memory for four months; the system is perfectly stable, and very fast.

Strengths: Excellent value; good memory size.

I ordered two of the 512 MB memory chips and they have worked like a charm. I've had absolutely no problem with memory access and they where easy to install. I highly recommend Corsair and would definitely buy their product again.

Strengths: Runs great OC's OK

Weakness: Not the fastest times but for the price worth every penny!

Bought this memory because it was cheep and with a cas of 2.5 is as better value that Kingston. I have run this memory on ASUS P4P800 Deluxe for 8 months and have had no issues what so ever. I am purchasing for another system I am building and recomend it to any one who wants to build a stable system.

Strengths: awesome memory, Consistent high quality memory, you cannot go wrong. compatibility is not an issue

Weakness: price of course, but you get what you pay for when it comes to memory.

like i said earlier there is no compatability issue what so ever. Like the review above said the company stands behind its name. It is used to test almost everything in computer hardware reviews. Brand memory is always the way to go if you can afford it. Corsair is top notch and you will not be disappointed with it performance

5 Star Review   By member dirtdodger - May 3, 2004   

Strengths: Reasonable price, good performance

This memory is awesome, especially for the price. Performs well and haven't had any problems with it. I am running Windows XP and a Intel P4 2.8ghz on an Intel 875PBZ motherboard. Has been perfect right out of the box and I see no reason it won't keep going. Works on both my games and my computing programs with equal ease. Two thumbs up.

5 Star Review   By member joshjohnson72 - Dec 27, 2003   

Strengths: Consistent high quality memory, and the company stands by their products

Weakness: Price is a little higher, but usually worth it

When I buy RAM, there are only 2 choices -- Corsair and Crucial. I buy Corsair for quality, and shop Crucial for price. In the most recent instance I purchased a 512MB DIMM for my new computer motherboard, because I needed PC3200. I installed the RAM with no problems, and put it through some grueling cycles for a week to burn in the system. No problems whatsoever with the RAM, which is just what I would expect from Corsair. I've used them in the past, and in one incident where I had a problem with a system recognizing 4 256MB sticks, I went by their office in Fremont, and one of their employees personally tried out a combination that worked for my system. Can't praise them enough.
