Stable RAM
5 Star Review   By member danielvan - May 18, 2009   

Strengths: Heatsinks, low CAS Latency, super fast, extremely stable when overclocking.

Weakness: Memory runs warm but that is with overclocking. Corsair is elite.

I highly recommend PC enthusiasts that want to have a stable system when overclocking to buy this RAM. I have used Corsair for years and never had to return a stick. Plus, Corsair backs their products up with a lifetime warranty!

Corsair XMS2 Xtreme 4GB DDR2 PC2-6400 Memory Kit
5 Star Review   By member IbarraYJ - Aug 10, 2008   

Strengths: Good Instructions & Easy to Install. Works Great! Nice Heat Spreaders.

Weakness: The Packaging is cheap and not easy to take memory out, always afraid they'll break.

I've recently been using alot of Corsiar memory modules in my systems and have been very pleased. I don't think I've received a DOA set yet, crossing my fingers. This Corsiar 4GB Kit is great for anyone using Vista, and if you're using XP I think only 3GB will show and be used.

Great price for a great package
4 Star Review   By member luanminhle - Aug 9, 2008   

Strengths: Price, Backward compatible, Cool running

Weakness: CAS latentcy

I got the kit from Fry's Electronics at $69 after $10 rebate + tax. Got 8GB total and boot my system performance point up .2 points from 4.0. I used this kit with Gigabyte GA-MA78GPM-DS2H mother board and AMD CPU 9950 as a total system overhaul build. Recommend to get this memory kit.

Great buy
5 Star Review   By member wway - Aug 1, 2008   

Strengths: Great price, especially with the rebate offer. 4 GB, DDR2.

Weakness: None.

This 4GB DDR2 is a great buy for the price. The 4 GB, DDR2 kit has enough RAMs for an entry level HTPC. They work smoothly on my HTPC. I highly recommend this memory kit for building a HTPC.

Excellent Value!!!
5 Star Review   By member SHOJUS - Jul 9, 2008   

Strengths: Price, speed, flexability with my motherboard.

Weakness: none so far!

I grabbed these while I could due to the rebates and I have not been disappointed. Although keep in mind that XP will only recognize 3.5 gb of the 4 I have installed. But I do not want to go to vista so "oh well". I think they can be overclocked but I'm not absolutely sure yet. I will update when I find out. But overall a great buy!!

My thoughts on the Corsair XMS2 4GB memory kid
4 Star Review   By member marc420 - Feb 20, 2008   

Strengths: 4 GB of memory, excellent price of the rebate comes through, comes with preinstalled heat sinks, Corsair namebrand and quaility

Weakness: CAS latency of 5 is a bit slow, limits to overclock ability due to slow CAS latency, going through rebate programs is always a hassle.

I'm very happy with this RAM so far. The price of the RAM after rebate compared to the actual price was the biggest selling point for me. I also like that it comes with heat sinks already installed and that Corsair has such a good reputation. I'd say the biggest flaw of this RAM is dealing with the mfc. mail-in rebate. Also if you are running Windows Vista the OS will only recognize less then 3.5GB of the RAM. Atleast on my system it did and I've heard of others having the same problem. My system with Vista Basic only recognizes 3.25GB of installed RAM, go figure.
