      Awesome RAM w/ fast performance

      Pros: + Fast rated clock speeds. + Easy to set XMP speeds @ 2933Mhz OC on Ryzen platform (if you're motherboard supports it) + Reliable performance + Pretty lights Cons: - Requires another third-party program (Corsair Link) to be installed to set the RGB options for anything other than default Rainbow - Can be tricky to get working properly on some Ryzen platform motherboards at rated speeds other than default speed of 2133MHz (this is more a limitation of individual motherboards, BIOS firmware and the still maturing Ryzen platform than a fault of the RAM itself) Other thoughts: Tried to run this set of RAM at XMP speeds @ 2933MHz on my first motherboard, the Gigabyte AORUS X370 Gaming K5, and it wouldn't post at any speed besides 2133MHz. After failing to run two sets of RAM at supported XMP profiles (I tried a set of PNY Anarchy-X RAM @ 3200MHz), I decide to RMA that board and purchase an ASUS Prime X370-A motherboard. I'm glad to report this RAM runs solid and fast on that motherboard with a Ryzen 1600 CPU with no issues. The RGB is a cool feature, that whilst unnecessary does look neat in my clear panel case. Using the Corsair Link program I can choose from many RGB options. Only downside is that you have to use that program to set the option, when most motherboards support some sort of native RGB functions already. Also, couldn't seem to find anything other than solid red color, but couldn't make it pulse or breath one solid color, just in different colors FYI. The RAM's RGBs still stay lit when computer is in sleep mode so if your rig is in a room where people sleep, you may want to fully shut your computer down when you go to sleep instead of letting the computer go into Sleep mode. All minor quibbles and not enough to knock a star. Again, very pleased with this product and loving it in my new build!

      I would have given this product 5 stars, however, the first kit I purchased had a dead stick in it. The return process was quick and simple, which is a nice change of pace from having to RMA through Newegg. As for the product itself, the kit runs at XMP profile speeds and the RGB LED lighting is an excellent touch to really make the motherboard pop. My only functionality complaint is that the RGB LED's continue to stay on if the machine has been put to "sleep." The Corsair Link software that controls the lighting and monitors temps is easy to use and works with most Corsair products. I will be purchasing another 8x2 kit ASAP.

      I have a gaming PC and of course I am looking for the best performance I can, as well as RGB because it looks awesome in my PC. I went up from my old RAM of 2400mhz non-RGB to this new RAM of 3000mhz and has RGB. As for the good of this RAM, my PC looks great and I can change the RGB colors on my RAM with ease and it looks awesome matching all the other RGB colors in my PC! The not so good of this RAM, I just paid over $200.00 for a negligible performance increase I cant even see or feel. So if you are running good fast RAM already, then by buying this RAM is only going to make your PC look good, as in my case I see no increase in performance. So I basically paid over $200.00 for some pretty lights! If money is no object and lighting up your PC is your overall goal then this RAM is perfect.

      Never had a problem with Corsair memory

      I've used every "level" of Corsair memory, from Value Select to XMS to Vengeance to Dominator, and I've yet to encounter any problems. I've purchased probably over 1TB worth of RAM for families, friends and clients and still haven't had one go bad. These are no different, AND THEY LIGHT UP!!! Unfortunately, I've been bitten by the RGB bug and had to have these. They can be overclocked to the same levels as the Dominator DIMMs they replaced so if you're only using the XMP profiles it should work flawlessly.

      Has good timings, good speed, pretty lights. Limited Lifetime warranty. Purchased 2 to put in my latest Corsair inspired build and no regrets. Honestly not to say all ram is pretty much equal but most come with a lifetime warranty. With that said, if you are doing a display build or have a side panel, the LED lights are vivid and can be controlled with the Corsair Link software or just plug and play and they will cycle colors randomly out of the box. (RAM right next to CPU water block)

      The software for the RGB lighting is pretty easy to understand and works well. I've had a couple memory crashes, not sure if its the module or my slot though. I haven't had a crash in over a week, after i updated my bios. Im hoping it was just a motherboard software issue but time will tell. The performance the RAM has given me so far(2 months) has been great though. I rarely lag while editing a video, when I do its mainly because i forget to revert back to my overclocking settings or the effects aren't fully rendered yet.

      Purchased this kit because the RGB would complement by build nicely. Overclocks to 3000Mhz on my Gigabyte Ultra Gaming motherboard with no issues; my system posted on the first try. RGB lighting controllable with Corsair's software and my motherboard with Gigabyte's software, nice to have options. Would definitely recommend this to those of you looking to add both style and performance to your system.

      I bought this as part of a system upgrade, but I really didn't think much about the LED factor - I was just looking for the speed rating and the XMP compatability. Both of those are awesome, and the RAM is working as advertised. However, I do have to say that the LEDs are pretty spiffy. It kinda completes the look, and I love that you can control them via Corsair's software to help give your system the exact appearance you want.
