Although Nubius will be here shortly to put down corsair, I have to say that it is indeed good RAM. Just because not as many OC'ers use it as use OCZ doesn't mean its crap.

Thanks,I thought (corsair) was good stuff but alot of people on this board really don't like it. It's better than the generic ....ok but what about the Kingston value ram? I guess generic ram is Value ram, right?

The reason people don't like Corsair is because Nubius and the people of XtremeSystems Forums all hate it. Because they are very knowledgable overclockers, they take his words of wisdom with high regards. While he may be right in that most overclockers use OCZ, Corsair IS NOT bad stuff, contrary to what he will tell you. When I joined these boards, everybody was hard core Corsair fans!

P.S. No offense Nubius, I am just stating my opinion that Corsair isn't really that terrible.

Corsair is very good RAM. In all of it's flavors. I use corsair value select in all of my budget builds for clients. Never had a problem.
