So I've had the Vengenance installed and running full tilt for 3 days now...going well. No reboots, BSOD, or anything of the sort. I will say that there seems to be a bit of lag at start up and have been looking into whether I need to do anything special after making such a jump (8gb to 16gb). All in all the system seems to be running and the WEI score sits at 7.6 for ram.

Just purchased 8GB kit of Corsair Vengeance for $50! Now to settle on the SSD, I'm really leaning towards a 256GB M4. I'll update after installing the chips and putting it through the ringer.
$50? Where did you get that deal?

Thanks. I had it in my head you purchased a 2x8GB kit for $50. I am no longer purchasing 4GB SoDIMMs.

I've just ordered 2x8GB Corsair standard soDimms for my W510.
Was going to order 4x8GB but I decided against it just now as my finances weren't playing ball.
However, if it works fine with existing RAM it should add up to 20GB which should be sufficient for my needs just now.
