Cheap Corsair Memory

I've just bought a cheap 4GB Stick of RAM which hasn't arrived yet but I'm already getting buyers remorse. Its this -

(Corsair CMV4GX3M1A1333C9)

There is an average 1 * rating which wasn't there when I bought it but I can't find another review out there on this stick. Am I mising something or is this an alright stick?

My system is going to be - AMD 965, a 65 GB SSD for OS and apps, a 890G chipset mobo (probably getting gygabyte) and a 5770 (I'll add a second when I can afford it).

Is this memory stick going to be a bottleneck? I was under the impression that memory was far enough ahead of other components that it didn't really matter if you bought a cheaper stick.

Thanks for your help

  1. Well, there shouldn't be any problems, as far as i can see. Better RAM's are available though. Frequency is fine. But you could have gone for some lower latency RAM's, like CL7 or CL6.
