Great deal but, slightly cheaper if you buy them as single modules

Do those finns serve any purpose - someone said they were stuck on with double sided tape!

Almost none whatsoever. In fact, if your CPU fan overlaps the RAM slots they will probably prevent you fitting them.

They look good though and this is pretty good value RAM. Got the 12Gb kit when they appeared on Scan for £145 a few weeks ago. Not super fast timings but main advantage is they will run at 1.5v so will keep the overall temps down if overclocking.

Plus, of course, with all these scare stories circulating about Sandy Bridge chips failing when pumping too many volts through the memory controller they should give you peace of mind if you're going for a new SB setup.

Bought two pairs, 16gb ram intotal :D. Off to sell my 4gb (2x2gb 1600mhz) :p.

That's ridiculous X)

has there been some super game invented that needs these? most games made are xbox generation games, why would you need 8gb? 100 quid will buy you an xbox!i used to be a pc gamer but i just dont see the point anymore, constantly upgrading your pc with expensive hardware when the games are still the same requirements, it costs a fortune too!

Excuse my ignorance - but will this help me increase the speed of my lappy?
And is it compatible - sorry i am a techy noooobbbb....

Nope, This is desktop PC memory not for laptops.

Since when were PCs only used for gaming?

Try using proper applications like Photoshop and you'll see why more memory is good!

Nice to see 4gb sticks finally, took their sweet time...
#11
do they work on mac?
#12
That is some badass looking RAM.
#13
Read on Tom's Hardware you don't get much from more than 4gb for gaming.
If you're doing some video editing or whatever I suppose it would help.

I'd rather be playing L4D2 8)

8Gb would be handy for photo/video editing, 3D modelling/animation, music production, to name a few. Personally, I would use it to do programming and number crunching.

Would be nice if you justified that in any way, shape or form.

I already purchased 8GB in late November, I just ordered another 8GB yesterday. I suppose i'm one of few who needs it as I virtualise testing infrastructure and that pretty much eats ram. Helps to have a 6 core CPU too.

Plus funnily enough it's cheaper to buy 2x the single 4GB modules, saves you £2 :)

Or play L4D2 with 8gb of RAM. I know the game can't address that amount of memory but it makes switching to the desktop or another app more responsive.

I mainly upgraded to try and reduce the use of the pagefile as I use an SSD (I do still have one but is on a standard mechanical drive which takes longer to access).

Since when is Corsair poor quality?

Here's one review, plenty more positive reviews available:
overclockersclub.com

Pros:
* Thin aluminum heat-spreaders
* Rated speed runs at 1.5v
* Decent overclocking ability
* RoHS compliant
* Lifetime Warranty
* XMP ready

Cons:
* None

Corsair have a good reputation with RMA's
Would of bought these if they had been this price last week, as it is got the same spec G-skills, for just a bit less.

Does 9-9-9-24 latency mean fast or slow? Would 5-5-5- be quicker?

The smaller the numbers the quicker the timings. You won't find much in the way of DDR3 running at 5-5-5 though, you see the ocassional kit running below 7s but they are normally either slower speed (e.g. 1333, not 1600mhz) or cost a lot more (at least until the manufacturing process matures enough to make the faster stuff for less).

Most half-decent motherboards these days allow you to set your own RAM speed/ timings anyway, so you could, for example, run this Vengeance kit at 1333 with tighter timings like 7-7-7. Or you can pump a bit more voltage through the sticks (going from 1.5 to 1.65v) and get something like 8-8-8 at 1600mhz.

Real world difference, however, is minimal. The vast majority of users would notice hardly any difference if they raised the timings by these sort of increments in anything other than benchmarks.

With the new Sandy Bridge chips now available much faster DDR3 is starting to appear, I've seen 2400mhz kits already on sale (only running at slack timings though) and I'm certain they will continue to get even faster in the near future.

Absolute rubbish. Corsair is arguably the best RAM maker out there. Crucial are far below, i've had many crucial sticks fail on me, never a corsair, and corsair give lifetime warrantys, no hassle to get it fixed.
Please don't misinform consumers.

If anyone is still after this particular kit Scan have it for £89.99 on their TO deal (free postage as usual for AV/Hexus forum members):
