We liked

This is a no-nonsense kit that majors on speeds and doesn't bother with frills. In other words, forget about fancy cooling solution or flashing lights. Instead, soak up the 2,000MHz clockspeed and enjoy the competitive pricing. In short, this kit delivers all the performance most users will ever need at a price they can afford.

We disliked

In a ideal world, Corsair's XMS3 2,000MHz would be clad in the finest heat-dissipating material money can buy. We'd hardly complain if this kit came with the same clip-on fans as the Corsair Dominator GT. Back in the real world, cheap heat spreaders are all you get at this price point.
