Good solid RAM

Comments about Corsair XMS3 12GB DDR3 SDRAM Memory Module - 12GB 2 GB (HX3X12G1600C9):

Corsair is the saint of Ram, their help support is pretty good, for the less then knowledgeable running tests such as Memtest (which they recommend for testing faulty RAM) are a bit more than manageable. However, it is great ram, I am actually underclocking it (explained later) and the sticks are happy as clams. Stable Memory, No need to overclock runs fine as is, price is affordable for 12GB kit. Owner of this kit for 8months and counting. Going to buy another set for my other computer I'm building. Its Corsair what else can you say. I purchased these to replace 2x 6GB kits from Geil that I purchased with the board (N82E16820144287). The computer would pass all memory tests (memtest/windows memory test) with the Geil memory but would BSOD every week or so. Prime95 tests showed the problem to be the memory, it would crash in mere seconds. With that in mind I decided to use every slot I had available for RAM on my motherboard. This package did the job. Only gripe, if you want to call it that, is that the CAS latencies are 9-9-9-24, so we're not going to set any particular RAM speed records. Had no problems getting motherboard to see ram.
