    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 purchased this RAM for my PC streaming build and I wasn't thinking too much about it. Honestly, looking at the product pictures (seeing the front and back faces of the ram), I didn't think the RGB would be very pleasing or nice to look at. I was dead wrong. The RGB with the fins, logo, and straight lines (on front/back face) just make it look that much more awesome!! Performance was on point for me. It was definitely plug and play. There are a few features available through Corsair's ICUE software. You can adjust the timing/speed and have different lighting effects like rainbow, static color, color shift, and color pulse. You can also look at performance graphs and other things through the software. I highly recommend this RAM module!!

    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.

    As much as I love RGB as the next person, I'm sorry. I had so many returns with this. I had to return this 2 times. One set causing my PC to BSOD. The second set missing the RGB colors. The 3rd, while working fine this time, has color issues in the middle of the stick, but overall, I decided tos tick to it. I wouldn't recommend this set unless you absolutely need RGB RAM.

      Sorry about the issues. If this kit was compatible with your motherboard and you still had issues then you must have ended up with a faulty unit, and it does happen at times where the replacement is faulty but this is something we try to keep non-existent. If you have any issues with any of our products in the future please contact us at 888-222-4346 or submit a ticket at support.corsair.com CorsairGaming

    I have used this RAM on two different AM4 motherboards, a B350 and an X370. On the B350, I was able to load the 2933 XMP settings with no issues and CL15. On the X370, I was able to load the 3000 XMP setting at CL15 with no issues. Also, RGB is pretty, if you like that sort of thing, or you can turn it off. The RGB is compatible with ASUS Aura Sync motherboard software.

    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.

    This RAM kit is bright. The colors are vibrant and beautiful. The performance is great as well. I've had a few different types of ram before going RGB in my build and I'm glad I chose these. The only con I see and it's a small one is that if the lights are on for long periods of time, hours, the temps are a few degrees higher than when the lights or off. That's to be expected though. That's it, great product.

    Bought these for a new build. They look great and shine bright in my system. One bit of info if you download Corsair LINK and have a program on your motherboard for Mystic Light control these two can conflict and make you loose control of the color changing. They will still work, but they may do different colors at the same time or one will be stuck at one specific color.

    Installed in an Asus ROG Crosshair Extreme VI with an AMD Ryzen 7 1800. Paired these for a total of 32G with two G.skill 3200Mhz sticks. Overclocked these two to 3200MHZ to match G.skill speed with out a problem.Tried to overclock to 3333Mhz and these did not like that. But what can you expect out of a 3000Mhz spec? Still better than I thought.

    I am already a big fan of Corsair and the products they produce. This ram has a fantastic look for anyone building a pc or looking to upgrade. The RGB looks great and overclocking was easy. I had no troubles while overclocking. I would recommend this ram for anyone who wants to add a great look for there build and beast performance.

    Bought this for my new desktop build and it has not disappointed me. The only issue I have is with the LEDs remaining powered when. The PC is in a hibernate/sleep state. I guess this is an issue with RGB DRAM modules in general though.

    These are nice modules of RAM however they weren't utilizing 3000mhz without tweaking settings in bios... even with compatible components. Not sure why that is but it just means extra steps are necessary whereas most other modules like those by crucial or samsung don't require any tweaking.

    Alienware came 2 sticks of next speed lower to give 16GB as bought. Added two sticks of these and now at 32GB Ram worked right out of box no additional configuration. These faster speed modules are backwards compatible with the lower original ram. Employee at BB recommended and he was spot on.

    Currently running on a Gigabyte AORUS x370 motherboard with XMP enabled at 2933mhz. Corsair LINK controls the RGB effects so you'll need to download the Corsair LINK app from Corsair to control the RGB effects.
