Default corsair value select ram

any one have any experence with this ram? good or bad. looking to get some was thinking the xms series but decided I really did not need that type of proformance. I was thinking it is just lower end corsair for regular users.

It is basicly cheapo RAM with slower timings, probably CAS 3 latency and no heat spreaders.

The difference between the more expensive probably isn't a whole lot, but if you can afford the better stuff you might as well

The difference between high quality and expensive ram from less expensive ram is modules. Corsair xms series and twin x are tested to make sure they are the best for overclocking and this takes more time to select the module so you the buyer have to pay for that. There is nothing wrong with value ram from corsair and it is very good not cheapo
