I am looking at getting a set of these..Has anyone had any problems running this type of ram? Do they Overclock well?

Corsair XMS2 Dominator Extreme Performance TWIN2X4096-8500C5DF 4GB 2X2GB PC2-8500 DDR2 1066 CL5-5-5-15 240Pin Memory Kit

Thanks

Mine run fine, although i'm running them below spec. They ran fine at 5-5-5-15 1066 aswell though.

Nice RAM if the price is right, go for it.

My friend has these , when he first used them he was having constant BSOD's and some other issues. Fixed it by updating his bios , and had to reinstall windows
But now they run like a charm.

I have a pair and my roomate has 8gb worth in his rig. Runs well at specs 5-5-5-15 timings @ 1056 MHZ but I run mine at 5-5-5-15 @ 1000MHz becuase the extra speed was causing BSOD with my CPU overclock. Other then great ram IMO I have always been a corsair fan when it comes to ram.

I have two pairs of those, one pair that came with the fan and one without, for a total of 8GB. I'm running all four sticks at 750MHz and 4 4 4 12, and I hope to get them down to 3 3 3 9. The fan is handy if you are going to overclock, because they do get pretty warm to the touch. I don't know how that impacts their serviceable life, but it's good to have some kind of cooling.

I had to RMA the first pair that I got because they were causing errors in MemTest, but Corsair was awesome about the exchange process and even cross-shipped for me with no shipping charges. Their support is even superior to EVGA's in my opinion.
