4 out of 5 eggsgreat memory

Pros: great memory. replaced stock heat sink for more cooling power, great price

Cons: went to go order a 2nd set and the price more then doubled to $179.00... outrageous price for such out dated hardware

Other Thoughts: newer, faster ram can be purchased cheaper

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer

Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. Glad to hear the memory works great and you got it at a great price. This is the best DDR2 memory kit avaiable on the market. No more chips are being produced so you can see that reflected in pricing. You are correct in that newer kits, especially those currently in production, will have a lower price. Older kits like high performance DDR2-1066 will continuously become more rare so it is possible for price to increase. Keep in mind G.Skill does not set pricing, that is managed by the vendor. Should you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to let us know.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Support

Pros: RAM worked at rated 1066 speeds (you need to adjust your voltage, I think mine are at 2.2).

Cons: Had a stick fail ~2 years later, random application crashes and BSOD's. But see Other thoughts for RMA info.

Other Thoughts: I RMA'd a single stick of this memory more than two years after purchase. The process was pretty seamless online, with G.Skill contacting me within 48 hours with the RMA information. No fuss. I shipped the faulty stick back to them, they immediately sent me a new package. Here's the thing, they sent a whole package of two sticks, not just one. So, I guess I have a spare DIMM in case another one fails or I need to do some testing. Their return shipping was pretty slow, taking about 8 days to get it here. But, as far as satisfied goes I am pretty up there, they accepted the RMA without disagreement, and stood by their warranty. Way to go G.Skill!

Dear Customer

We will be glad to help with this issue. The RAM is guaranteed at the rated specifications, so they will surely outperform any DDR2-800 RAM. Keep in mind the high speed will cause a lot of stress for the memory controller, so additional tweaks may be necessary to stabilize the system. Should you need any assistance with this, please feel free to contact us directly.

Thank you

2 out of 5 eggsOK but not great.

Pros: OK sticks but not great.

Cons: One of the sticks was faulty, computer would randomly not boot and required several tries of restarts.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer

We are sorry to hear you are not fully satisfied with your purchase. These are the fastest DDR2 modules on the market, so you should be pleased with the performance. The specifications are above standard, so make sure to configure settings in BIOS to run at full speed. If you need any help with that, please feel free to let us know. If you believe a module is defective, send it in for RMA exchange and a replacement should work much better. Visit the G.Skill website for complete RMA procedure.

Thank you

2 out of 5 eggsVery disappointed

Pros: High-speed DDR2

Cons: Expensive for this amount of RAM.
No exchange or refund.
Manufacturer support (see below).

Other Thoughts: Bought this kit for a project I was trying to maximize.
Part of the blame is on me, I bought this for an AMD-based system without noticing that, under the Specifications tab, only Intel chipsets were listed as compatible.
I completed the physical build, set the BIOS for DDR2-1066 RAM and booted the system from a Memtest86+ CD. Almost immediately, over 200 RAM errors were displayed.
I checked my order history and found there was no RAM link or button next to this purchase, no way to return or exchange.
I contacted G.Skill Customer Support and asked for help. They responded quickly and offered a couple suggestions. One of the suggestions was to run the RAM as DDR2-800 at 4-4-4-12 timings (which, coincidentally, matches the settings of their F2-6400CL4D-4GBPK kit that sells at a much lower price).
When I pointed this out, the response was rather "snarky", suggesting I was inexperienced and not very bright for trying to get "high performance out of an AMD platform.
I transferred the RAM to an old Gigabyte GA-G31M-ES2L and tweaked BIOS settings to get the AM to run at 1066MHz. It runs stably, but the SPDs still read as DDR2-800.
Between the price I had to pay for this RAM, the fact that I'm "stuck" with it and how I practically had to beat the rated performance out of it, I'm very disappointed with this purchase.
I have bought G.Skill RAM, almost exclusively, for several years and I know they make a good product.
The support experience I had with this product, however, knocks G.Skill completely off of my buy list.
I have a few kits in my current stockpile, but I won't be buying any more.

Dear Customer

Glad to hear you got the RAM working at full speed in another computer that can support DDR2-1066. This is the best desktop DDR2 memory kit on the market, so the price is reasonable for what it is. Not all CPUs can support DDR2-1066, so if you have hardware that does not, the RAM can still be used, but the RAM must be set to a lower frequency in BIOS to run properly. For your AMD motherboard and CPU combination, most likely the ideal speed to set it to is DDR2-800 4-4-4-12 2.0V, so that is what the technical support representative suggested to you for optimal performance. As you discovered, with a capable motherboard and CPU, you had no problems running the RAM at full speed. Through NewEgg, you have a 30 day return and exchange period, so within that time frame you have options to get a different item or a refund. For any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly.

Thank you

1 out of 5 eggsIt worked for 2 years

Pros: At the time a good price not so much now.

Cons: When you do a RMA they will tell you to insure for loss yet they do not insure for loss on the return trip so if they get lost in the mail it will be on you. It's hit or miss as far as email I had only a 50% response rate. I never got a single email during RMA process just an anonymous email from stamps telling me an unknown shipment was mailed from California. I Joined there forums and activated my account in hopes of opening up lines of communication but from the instant my account was activated I had no posting privileges. NEVER AGAIN WILL I BUY G.SKILL.

Dear Customer

We will be glad to help with this issue. If we received your RMA return, we guarantee you to receive a working replacement back. So you are responsible for making sure we receive the return, and we will make sure you receive new hardware. If there is any issue, you can contact any support email, telephone, or forum support and a representative will be glad to help. The G.Skill RMA process is quick and hassle free. We don't take days to check in your product and diagnose the return so we can send you details. We believe you need your computer running, so once you receive your RAM, we are going to send you new memory back right away. We would like to solve the issue immediately rather than keep you posted on the status of your RMA. With regards to the forum, there is a temporary wait period to filter SPAM users, so that is why you were unable to immediately post. You should now have full access to the G.Skill technical forum. For any further questions or concerns, please feel free to let us know directly.

3 out of 5 eggsLasted 2 years

Pros: Worked well out of the box. I did not over clock the memory due to restrictions of motherboard.

Cons: I did an RMA with G.Skill with a turnaround of one day. G.Skill should consider better communication during the RMA process. They sent no emails letting me know they received the memory and nothing letting me know they shipped it out. The only reason I know they shipped it back to me is an anonymous email from stamps.com. The story does not end well. I am near Chicago in Indiana scans ended with USPS three days ago just west of Chicago less than 50 miles away with no further scans. Hopefully G. Skill will get back to me.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Perfectly

Pros: I just purchased two (2) more sticks of this memory to the match 4GB I used in an HTPC a few years ago (2009). The old memory is has been flawless for 5 years. I was amazed that it is still for sale.

Cons: DDR2 is too expensive. I paid less in 2009.

5 out of 5 eggsSome of the best

Pros: Out of stock maybe forever but is still running over clocked in my main gaming desktop in a Foxconn Destroyer mobo I built in 2008.If you ever had any issues with this DC 10600 ram just turn the juice up a tad until it's happy. I have never had any problems with it and my AMD black dual core Phenom 550 will still run this build on air with the
same 9800 GTX+ card and WD raptor at 3.9 ghz.Who would of ever thought ( me for one ) that this build would still be cranking out any fps this long ✌

Cons: None at all
