Conclusion:

The CSX 3GB DDR3-1600MHz (CEC3-1600-3GB-3KIT) memory had functioned as expected, we ran into no stability problems, and it easily ran up to its DDR3-1600MHz rating. The real-world Linux performance was great and comparable to that of the OCZ 2GB DDR3-1333MHz Gold Kit, but if using an Intel Core i7 platform, you should be able to experience even greater results thanks to its triple memory channel support.
