    "Definitely the best DDR4 RAM for gaming. not only does it give me the memory i need, it also isn't half bad a price! seriously, get yourself one of these if you can. if not, there are low-speed variations that are cheaper but can still get the job done!"

    "this DDR4 works beuatifully and looks just as beautiful in my PC! fair bit of warning though: it is a bit taller than most DDR4s out there so take care when choosing it for your PC. otherwise, worth every dang penny!"

    "not as quick as other choices, and also a bit pricey. that said, i'm a corsair fanboy solely because they are consistent in every product they've made. im giving it a fair 4.5."
