Corasir MSM 2GB PC-6400 DDR memory
1 Star Review   By member nickhaines - Sep 28, 2009   

Strengths: Easy to fit

Weakness: One stick was DOA

Only one stick of the memory worked. Returned the purchase for credit - still waiting for my refund. Not happy with this purchase. It has caused problems with my MBoard.

Great Value, performance, service
5 Star Review   By Bbell1 on Mwave.com - Jun 19, 2008   

Strengths: Very good performance, overclock capabilities, warranty service and rebate service.

Weakness: had 1 stick out of last 8 pair I bought go bad

I've bought Corsair memory for the last 3 DDR systems I built. Never had a problem getting a rebate. Yes, they do take some time to print the check and send it back. However, I've even lost a rebate check, called them up and they send me a new one a few weeks later! That's customer service! Performance is always as stated, if not better. I overclocked these particular 800Mhz sticks to 948Mhz stable on my ASUS M2R32-MVP (AM2) at 4-4-4-12 settings. I had one DDR2 Corsair stick go bad after about a year of usage on a P4 overclocked system. Ran MEMtest to confirm it was bad, RMA'd through Corsair, and had a replacement set within a week! Again, great customer service!

Very good memory
4 Star Review   Mwave.com   

Strengths: Stable and Overclockable.

Weakness: Heat Spreader, I have a fan right on the chips for insurance. If someone got it to 1066 I would be amazed.

Was very happy with this memory, overclocked to 4.4.4.11 at 2.1 volts and 840mhz. It seemed stable at around 850, but above that I started getting orthos crashes. At 840mhz I its very stable.

I hope yours works
1 Star Review     

Strengths: good price

Weakness: one module did not work

When you tell corsair that you have a bad module they won't believe you. I thought that when the bios won't count up your memory (checksum error) that your memory is bad. Corsair wants you (me) to download and unzip a program from memtest.org. I didn't know how to do this so it took some time before a client did this for me. So when the bad module returned 2500000 errors without completing one test run corsair gave me a return#. So I sent my ram out priority mail . Corsair and me are both on the west coast 2-3 day delivery. Ten days later they acknowledge receiving my ram. Ten days after they still have not tested the ram. good luck case 214629 rma 1022259

Good Memory
4 Star Review     

Strengths: Fast memory, easy installation and set up, price, lifetime warranty

Weakness: Heat spreader leaves me wanting, price, reliability?

This memory is very fast, upon initial installation onto an eVGA 680i LT motherboard the system automatically recognized and set up the BIOS settings (easy installation and set up). I put down the price as a strength and weakness because looking at the regular prices it does appear to be more expensive, however I got this memory kit with a rebate (that I'm still waiting on) so the price was very reasonable especially for the performance that I am seeing. The reliability as a weakness, I've been using the memory for about 3 weeks and I had a module go bad on me, with no overclocking. I'm hoping that this is just a luck of the draw type of situation because aside from the memory dying on me I am very impressed and satisfied with this RAM. Currently running on 1gb module until I can RMA the bad module, and there is a huge difference when the memory is not paired, even when doing typical Windows tasks.

Worked Great
2 Star Review   By member SDTechDeals - Mar 8, 2007   

Strengths: Fast; heat-spreaders; lifetime-warranty

Weakness: could be faster; POOR REBATES

I was upgrading from 2GB dual-channl PC2-5300 RAM, as I wanted the performance boost, and to not maintain upwards compatibility. I plopped 'em in and my ASUS P5WDH recognized them as PC2-6400 RAM, so at least the SPD rom is programmed properly (some are programmed to be overly conservative). I tweaked the timing, bumped the voltage to 2.1V, and all is good! Corsair has a great reputation in the memory business, with a lifetime warranty. I just hope my first purchase of their product proves to be a good one! :-) Updated 7/2/07: Don't trust Corsair rebates, which is handled by the status-now dot com site! I submitted my rebate in Feb, they never got it. I resubmitted via FAX several times, made numerous phone calls, and it finally got logged. Status updated in early May indicating that check was processed, and the expect it in six weeks! After this time, and no check, they will re-issue. It's been two weeks, and they still have not mailed the check! I will never buy another corsair product because of this. It's a shame that Corsair hires this rebate house, because other than that, the product is top-notch!

Corsair Memory
5 Star Review   By member tengst - Mar 7, 2007   

Strengths: Price, speed

Weakness: None that I know of...

I purchased this for a particular motherboard that was known to be touchy about memory. However, I have had absolutely no problems with the memory. I haven't had a chance to overclock it yet but I expect no problems from what I've seen so far. It doesn't have the fancy lights that the more expensive Corsair memory has, but I can live without those for the price. I have used Corsair memory in the past. While I would always recommend researching the device you specifically want to use it for, I have had no problems with any of the memory I've purchased.

Works fine
5 Star Review   By member gqvisionz - Feb 28, 2007   

Strengths: 800 mhz, cas4, 2gigs, heatspreaders

Weakness: heard its not a micron chip

This ram works perfectly fine with my XPS 600. Surprisingly it reads at 800mhz on the dell when i checked bios and ran cpu-z. Haven't had a chance to test its overclockability though since the dell's bios is locked. otherwise, killer ram. oh yeah, it didn't seem to get very hot either.

Excellent Memory
5 Star Review   By member mwilke01 - Feb 8, 2007   

Strengths: Excellent CAS timings, Quality manufacturer, runs fast, rebate also helps

Weakness: Expensive and heat spreaders seem a little flimsy/thin

Works great with my ASUS P5B Deluxe without any problems. I haven't overclocked it yet and may not need to since it is already very fast. I am upgrading from a P4 with DDR memory and this memory with a Core 2 Duo are very fast!

Memory that works
4 Star Review   By member vishpunja - Jan 22, 2007   

Strengths: Fast, overclockable, SLI.

Weakness: Expensive.

I am really happy that it works well without doing much to it but when I finished building the computer, the computer did not work and just made beeping sounds. After removing 1gb the computer started up properly. I do not know what the problem but after that incident I put in both the sticks and the computer worked fine and picked up the 2gb. Other than that this is great memory.

Automatic Configuration works Great
5 Star Review   By member HEB1022 - Jan 18, 2007   

Strengths: SLI Technology

Weakness: None that I have found

My EVGA 680i motherboard picked up this memory and set all the timings automatically. I run it unlinked from the FSB at 800mhz, and CAS=4 with no problems at all. Great memory. I am planning to add another pair to bring me up to 4GB

2GB PC2-6400 DDR2 DIMM MEMORY KIT
5 Star Review   By member ironpipe - Dec 21, 2006   

Strengths: Fast, Fast, FAST!!!!! Run at very low temperature. Attractive. Overclock with FSB 1385.64. No problem.

Weakness: Expencive

I am running this beast at over 1385 FSB and they are steady and extremely consistent. With a Core 2 Deo E6600 it is so fast that if you blink you will never see the screen change. They are a pair of beauty to behold. Take your pick, Beauty or a Beast. Love them.

Great memory
5 Star Review   By member kenneth0127 - Dec 14, 2006   

Strengths: Very stable, highly overclockable

Weakness: heatspreader is cheap quality

These are great memories. Perfectly compatible with my ASUS P5B Deluxe for 800Mhz. Minimum overclockable to 1066 with slightly increased voltage. The heatspreader isn't so good and you will feel it's hot when touching it.

Great Ram from Corsair
4 Star Review   By member gamejunkie - Dec 12, 2006   

Strengths: Very fast ram! Worth every penny! This ram has ready to use profiles, you have to active at it in your bios.

Weakness: The ram initially ran at 5-5-5-15 on my GA-965P-DQ6. I had to go into the bios to change it to its rated timings of 4-4-4-12.

Overclocked mine to 850 MHz DDR @ 4-4-4-12 timings. This ram isn't cheap at $280 for 2 matched pairs of 1 GB but this is quality ram that you know is fast. Got it from Newegg.

Perfect with M2N32-SLI Deluxe!!!
5 Star Review   By member csrush - Nov 27, 2006   

Strengths: Perfectly compatible with Asus M2N32-SLI Deluxe Wireless Edition Motherboard.

Weakness: None.

This ram works great with the Asus M2N32-SLI Deluxe Wireless Edition Motherboard. I got this ram and mobo not too long after the mobo came out. I read many reviews and this was the #1 recommended ram for that mobo. There were lots of people trying to save a few dollars by buying different ram and they only got themselves a headache. This ram works great and definitely has room for overclocking. Definitely recommend it.

Great memory, very stable.
5 Star Review   By member dardia - Sep 17, 2006   

Strengths: Fast memory, high quality. Works in a lot of boards, especially the great, but picky, ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe (it's one of the few good sticks on the QVL list for the mobo).

Weakness: Expensive for 2GB of DDR2-800 compared to other brands.

Dropped this in a new build with an M2N32-SLI mobo with a new X2 4200+ processor and it worked right out of the box. I installed Windows XP SP2, and then began running Prime95 stress tests and Memtest86+ and it was very stable. Haven't begun overclocking yet, but may post an update later.

Good memory
5 Star Review   By member dimgeoch - Jul 4, 2006   

Strengths: Price, stability

Weakness: Heatspreader?

I've recently moved to new AMD platform, with Asus M2N32-SLI Deluxe motherboard. Originally I had 2GB of Kinston 800 DDR2, which had worked very well with P4 motherboard, but wouldn't even boot in new configuration. After some research I purchased this Corsair memory, which worked right away, and is very stable so far. You can use BIOS configurations to overclock it, but I am not sure if heatspreader is good enough for this. I looks like it is a plastic, not an aluminum as on Kingston. Anyway, very good memory
