    MUST HAVE UPGRADE FROM 8GB to 16GB (A++FOR GAMERS)

    This is a must have if you had bought a pre-built PC or have been building a PC. I got the HP Omen 870 series and the stock ram that came with it was for 1x 8gb. I noticed over time my computer started weighing down and became very very slow. Especially if you run video games or browse with multiple tabs over Google Chrome/Mozilla Firefox. I resisted getting 16gb for a long time until my computer was impossible to play video games. I ended up taking the time to buy this in store and one of the BEST INVESTMENTS I made all year. Comes with 2x 8gb rams for a DDR4 2.4ghz. Really easy to install. Just remove the older ram and snap these into place. They only go inside the computer in one direction, like all ram, and snaps into place. In a matter of minutes, booting up my PC, the web browsing is AMAZING for video games. I no longer had to deal with LAG SPIKES or slow performance. My PC use to run 8gb ram at 80%-90% and now it runs stable around 40%-60%. The upgrade is definitely a must. This is great for watching Youtube videos, browsing multiple tabs online, video gaming, photoshopping, and anything else that allows you to run multiple applications at once without having your computer slow you down. There's nothing more frustrating than having to spend more than 5-10 seconds to load a Youtube video or browser article. This solved the issue and is one of the ways I've upgraded my prebuilt PC to performing faster without having to deal with any slowing frustrations. I'd definitely recommend this and I am loving the performance and brand . Just make sure you check your PC that it requires or uses this style of ram to avoid purchasing the wrong one . HOW TO FIND WHAT RAM YOU CURRENTLY HAVE/NEED: If you have Windows 10: Go to Your "Task Bar" and "Right Click" any open space. Then select "Task Manager" Click tab "Performance" And then you will see what Speed (MHz) your motherboard uses whether it's a DDR3 or DDR4 Ram slot. Also you can view the current ram in your computer. It's great to see how well your computer is performing and whether you need more ram from your current settings. Make sure you have enough slots in your motherboard. Mine only took two slots and this was good enough to install with 2x 8gb sticks. Good luck!

    I originally was going for the higher clock speed, but upon further research, all these memory sticks all have the same speed, it just some are already overclock... so why pay more, I just finished building a PC and benchmark it with the online tool, it performed excellently compared it to build of the same specs, particularly these memory chips...it concluded that it will meet all my needs and more....highly recommend it.

    Can't go wrong with Corsair Memory

    I decided to use my best buy gift cards that I had got from the holidays in 2017 and use them to buy 16 GB RAM kit from corsair for my gaming rig. 16 GB RAM to some may be overkill but down the line 16 GB will become standard in any computer as games, applications (photoshop, premier pro) will need more memory if you are multitasking. When I buy RAM I always get it from a well known brand and corsair memory is good memory.

    Purchased the memory for a Dell T30 server to boost capacity so I could install VMWare to host some test dev VMs. The memory was easy to install and felt like it was quality. The computer booted right up after installing and ran into no compatibility issues. It's been running now stop now for a good month with no memory related errors. Would purchase this brand again.

    I bought this thinking it would work well with the pc I bought from BestBuy to increase the RAM from 8 GB to 24 GB. They are the same specs as what the PC contained (DDR4-2400) The set of DIMMS contained a bad memory module, so I exchanged them. Installed the new ones in the correct configuration. No matter what configuration I tried, games would crash even with the original PC memory module removed. This caused me many headaches.

    Bought these for a upgrade to my PC because it was listed as a tested compatible ram for my motherboard and well the price was just rite. Recommend these to anyone that needs DDR4 im sure these would be compatible with just about any board needing DDR4.. These are very nice looking with the aluminum heatsink to make them run cooler and so far so good after having them in my system for a month..

    I bought a set of these when I first built my computer back in 2016, was very happy with their performance so I decided to buy another set to give myself 32GB for "future gaming" lol. Overclocking memory is something im not too great at but XMP auto does it well enough to notice a difference while running stress tests. Overall great product love corsair.

    Doubled my memory & my PC runs faster

    I doubled the memory in my desktop because it sometimes ran a little slow loading pages or streaming. Plus it took it often a full minute ++ to boot up completely. Not anymore. It boots up to usable within 25 seconds most of the time, and sometimes faster. no more buffering problems & just a pleasure to use it now.

    I bought this memory as an upgrade for my new desktop. It did not disappoint. Corsair has been a trusted manufacturer of mine for years. Both the quality of manufacture and performance were of the usual excellence. I was pleased to find that the price has dropped as well. I highly recommend picking this memory for upgrading by everyone.

    These are very eas to install and to remove from the packaging. It was a breeze after I identified the keyholes on my ram sticks to the ones on the motherboard. I just locked one side into place, then locked the other ensuring the motherboard ram clips “closed” on both sides with a satisfying snap sound.

    I had to buy all new ram for my new computer, while I used ballistix 4gig sticks x2 for my last build. This was a nice upgrade, sticks were solid, went rigbt into slots with little force. Paired them up with my i5 7600k and my comp boots up in under 30 seconds cold boot. Id reccommend for sure had to setup xmp in bios for this set too! Besure to do that if you purchase this product.

    My computer only had 8GB of Corsair RAM so I decided to buy two of these packs, installed myself with relative ease and they worked fine. I mean it’s RAM. Had to take my cooler fan out but no big deal. These are low profile so they fit nice in my rig with all the other do-dads in there.

    I paired this with a Ryzen 5 1600 and RX 570 and it works perfect. I was a little wary about buying 2400mhz ram but it seems to work fine. I don't overclock or anything so not sure how it would handle in that situation. But, great deal for 16gb of ram

    Unfortunately my purchase had come along with a bad stick of memory and had to return this. I tested both sticks and one was faulty and would not let my computer boot up. If it wasn’t for this accident I would definitely recommend buying.

    Needed some RAM for an urgent system replacement and BestBuy was there with in-sock parts. As always they price matched and had the parts waiting for me when I arrived (ordered online) No problem installing these or any issues with the specified performance.

    I'm currently running 16 GB of this ram, 32 total.. I've had them in my build for around 3 years now and it's never given me any problems. Would highly recommend this to anyone, either starting a build of any kind or if you are just upgrading an old computer.
