Had 4GB for about a year and a half now. Everything's as it should be, never had any problems, never tweaked anything. 4GB was not enough for my needs however which is why I'm buying another set of these to bump it up to 8GB. Would recommend.

Great ram

This is awesome for the price, running it at 1600Mhz 7-9-7-19 1T 1.65v.

Dean 2011-10-17

Brilliant RAM

This RAM is great. Overclocks well as from my pre built OC System that I got from OverClockers.

Just got another 4GB, so a total of 8GB in my machine. I haven't noticed an increase in speed but this is to be expected when already running super fast RAM and a SSD.

It now means I can run many many programs at once.

Thanks Overclockers!

Alex 2011-08-31

Great RAM

This RAM arrived the next morning after a forum member recomended it. Help with my overclocking. One thing I noticed my MB had it set at 1333Mhz so i had to go into the BIOS and change it to 1600Mhz and set the voltage as well. Not sure why it set it to the lower setting but have read a few aritcles saying it happens and just to change it in the BIOS. Great price for it too! Im running it on an ASUS M4N98TD EVO with a AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE.

Simon 2011-07-26

Great ram!

Have 8gig of it and I wouldnt go any less now I've experienced it

Krispy 2011-06-24

Excellent Ram

I have these running on a Asus P8P67 LE with an i7 2600k at 1.5 volts 1600Mhz
CL 8
tRCD 9
tRP 8
tRAS 22

well above spec :) with low volts too

Corsair XMS3 4GB

Used with a new AMD build, these were replacement for some OCZ memory that gave me a constant headache for a few weeks.

Totally stable from the off, running at 10666 at stock volts (so under clocked) but ive tightened the timing to 8-8-8-24

wasnt actually planning to OC this system so i dont think ill push the memory much further

Daniel 2011-03-30

Works on AMD!

This does work on AMD before anybody asks =).

And Gareth, If you're having problems getting it running contact me on the Overclockers Forums. My name is 'MrElve'. And i'll be more than happy to give you my email address so i can help you sort out your issue. ;-)

Jonathan 2011-03-03

Well Done Corsair

Ordered from OC on Monday and was in my new system up and running by Wednesday. Great Value and works at full speed on my GA-770T-UD3 m/b with AthlonII x2 - 250. Now looking for 8gb version for the 870a-ud3 for my PhenomII-1100T. Only got 4gb running on that!! I'm just greedy!

Cor blimey

Ordered Monday 1st class, arrived Tuesday. Dropped straight into my Asrock M3A790GXH/128/Phenom II 550BE unlocked to four cores. Set manually to SPD settings 1600/9/9/9/24/42 changed to 1T@1.65v. Running async. Passed OCCT/Prime95 1 hr runs and 50 runs of Linx. Previous OCZ Gold wouldn't even run stable after lots of attempts at its rated 1333 & had to rma. Well 'appy :)

Gareth 2011-02-17


Just brought this RAM with an ASUS Crossfire III like Dan. However, I am unable to get this running at 1600Mhz. Once set in BIOS the boot screen will just freeze.

How did you get yours to run? Please help!


Daniel 2011-01-04

Just amazing.

For everybody that is wondering if this will work with AMD it sure does! Just because it says unlocked for Intel i5 and i7 it works a treat with AMD.

I have this set up with my Phenom II X6 1055T and asus Crosshair III formula motherboard and its just amazing at its great 1600Mhz speed.

However make sure your motherboard can support 1600Mhz otherwise change its speed in the BIOS or just buy 1333Mhz RAM, but it shouldnt make a difference as your BIOS usually changes it for you anyway.

Great RAM, Great price. Will definitely be buying more to increase!

Derek 2010-12-29

Great Ram

Works very in my AMD system,cool and stable

Dan 2010-12-24


Ordered another set of these on the daily deal yesterday, was suprised to hear a knock on the door this morning!
Amazing service from overclockers!

Chevallier 2010-11-30

Rock solid

Running at 1600mhz 1.65v 9-9-9-24 24hr stable and solid. Can't ask for more or need more in a non-gaming desktop

D13 2010-07-16

No funny business

Loaded into asus sabertooth, just works, no problems no hassle, always use corsair. My advice for hardware if you dont have problems with a company just stick with them to avoid grief. Also dont waste time with qvl, just go to corsair memory configure website and it will give you list of 100% confirmed compatible ram.
Overclockers shipped within 30mins of order, thats how it's supposed to be :)

Shimmy 2010-07-08

Very Good Ram

Ordered monday arrived tuesday, took less than 5 minutes to install and setup, i5-750 cpu running at 3.4, ram at 1604.

Replaced no brand ram that was a total headache.

Would recommend

ploutarchos 2010-06-10

It's still corsair

As with previous products of corsair, Corsair has fail at 9-9-9-26 at 1800Mhz , I don't know why and I can't find the reason, maybe they have some problem with the other parts of the test, For me, as the others products of corsair that works great. Easy steps to get 1600Mhz and little more difficult to get 1800Mhz but it's still corsair!!!

chris 2010-06-03

great ram

got this runing on asus crosshair formula 4 mobo with a phenom 550 x2 and WOW the best ram i have had overclocked my amd to 3.9ghz no problems

vance 2010-04-15


Running my i5 at 4.0ghz stable, at somin like 1750mhz, and really cant fault them so five stars all the way.

Mike 2010-02-05


Even though it says intel, I am using these sticks on my 955 Phenom II, must say installation was great using a UD3 mobo and oc'ing is awesome too.
Got recommended the mobo and the RAM after giving my suggestions to OC support order went through with my whole system order and must say the current rig im using compared to my old one is an amazing increase in performance:

Intel C2D e7200
Nvidia 8800 GT
4gb Corsair DDR2
Gigabyte P35

AMD Phenom II 955 BE
ATI 5850 1Gb
4gb Corsair XMS3 DDR3
Gigabyte GA-MA790GPT-UD3H

Dean 2010-01-22


Running this fine with my AMD PII 965 and UD5 gigabyte board.

Don't be scared to order this for AMD, I guess the intel i5/i7 branding is just marketing speak.
