What on earth is up with the intro. It looks like it was written by a child.

This page needs some facts. I think Corsair is making this up. Anyone that uses corsair memory find it reliable?

I've never used Corsair memory, but it always gets excellent reviews from those who have purchased it. See here [1] for an example. Vesta 23:04, 5 January 2006 (UTC)
I've been using Corsair memory. I do find that it's been stable/reliable and it is performance-oriented (although my system is now outdated). I wouldn't really have expected anything different with other brands of memory (since all PC memory is ultimately fabricated at a small handful of plants). However, in general, Corsair provides high-end components (the modules are specifically selected for their attributes and ability to overclock well), so the description is not inaccurate; it's just not very specific. 71.201.59.110 05:56, 20 May 2006 (UTC)

Corsair's XMS series memory is one of the more popular enthusiast RAM modules, because of their speed, low latencies, and reliability. Their Value RAM probably isn't so good, but I don't have any experience with it.

My dad worked on XMS2, and it is popular with gamers. I know at least 5 people that work with it for day to day use, and they say it's very useful.

HX Rails[edit]

According to reviews (SilentPCReview, JohnnyGuru among them), the HX series, even though it's stated that they have 3 rails, those are virtual rails with no separate OCPs and in reality they have only one large 12V rail. 40/50A respectively for the HX520/620. 85.19.140.9 (talk) 00:23, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

The 12 volt rails are listed as being seperate in the specifications put out by the manufacturer. What you're saying is true however. If somebody could add that to the article, that'd be great.

Computer enthusiast doesn't mean you're a hacker. I removed the link in the article to hacker culture. Please don't add it back in. GuitarFreak (talk) 21:03, 11 January 2008 (UTC)
