4 out of 5 eggsupgraded ram

Pros: works with minimal configuration

Cons: expensive ram for such an old system

Other Thoughts: the heat syncs are flashy but also functional, overall I'm happy with the purchase

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer

Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. Glad to hear the memory is working well in your system. This is a high performance memory kit that is great for systems that can support it. In fact, this is the lasting high end DDR2 RAM on the market. Soon there will be no more and only standard DDR2-800 RAM will be available. Due to the rare availability, it is reflected in pricing. The heat spreaders are definitely functional in cooling down the modules that can get hot especially during overclocking 2.10V+. G.Skill does not produce any non-functional designs for flashy reasons. For any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsadded G.Skill with Corsair

Pros: The quality is very good. Prior to ordering I contacted G.Skill support and asked them if adding their memory existing 2 x 2 Corsair dominator, PC8500, 5-5-5-15 will cause any negative issues. They replied same day and gave me advice that I may have to make a couple adjustments and where at (MCH and maybe voltage). Excellent support.

Cons: None at this time

Other Thoughts: I'm pleased to say that adding the 4GB of G.Skill memory to my current 4GB of Corsair memory worked perfect and, I didn't need to change any values. Both brands of memory are PC8500 and same timings, 5-5-5-15. My BIOS detected the additional memory and kept the speed at 1066. All the timings, voltages and MCH are the same. I did not need to tweak any values. I ran memtest86 bootable ver 4.0a for 10 passes and no errors. I ran Prime95 for 6.5 hours and no errors, no warnings. Launching programs is snappier, quicker and even shutdown happens quicker. I think boot time is the same....haven't timed it yet. My MOBO is Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3R,LGA775, intel P45, it likes G.Skill and Corsair memory. When I build another computer I'll use G.Skill or Corsair memory.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works as advertised, good memory. Will run 5-5-5-15 timings up to 1066 at least. Great for trying to get the last bit out of old 775's etc.

Cons: None so far

5 out of 5 eggsF2-8500CL5D-4GBPI-B (8GB)

Pros: Bringing back some life to an aging PC. :) For years had 4GB's module kit and kept putting off upgrading. The old 4GB modules were no longer avail and didn't play nice with the new 2x2 PI's. So ordered a total of 2x4 Pi 1066 kits and still working out the bells & whistles. (finger's crossed).
~G-Skill tech support is Amazing & VERY helpful~

Cons: Nothing as of yet. Hopefully resurrecting an old built without having to 'move to the new tech' just yet.

Other Thoughts: Not really a Con. Due to my intermittent knowledge (Jack of all trades, so to speak) regarding bios & settings, I'm working with the GSkill techs to get it running 'Stable!' I'm not really a heavy gamer, but do enjoy dabbling in Photo/Video editing.

Setup for the 'old workhorse':
GA-EP45-UD3P (rev. 1.0) F10 bios
Intel Core2Quad Q6600 with G0
-on the way- ZOTAC ZT-61012-10M
80GB SSD boot
1TB Veloceraptor

1 out of 5 eggsDead Ram Stick.

Pros: Good Ram Sticks, been using them on my last laptops.

I just had my G-Skills DDR2 8500 deliver to my house, pot them in and nothing. I try each stick one by one and found that one stick out of two is defective.

Cons: On the package states that they are %100 hand tested, In my opinion they are not. I inserted the sticks in and my computer didn't boot. So i try one stick at a time and found out that one stick didn't work.

My fist buy for DDR2 and they Fail, I'm really disappointed.

Now i have to send them back and exchange them for working ones and I have to wait again for them to arrive at my house.

Other Thoughts: Just bothers me that it says they are %100 hand tested, well i think they have to check twice before releasing them for sale.

Dear Customer

We are sorry to hear you had a problem. Each G.Skill memory kit is hand picked, tested, and guaranteed for optimal performance. Please send them in directly to G.Skill for RMA exchange and we can assure you that you will receive a perfectly working memory kit. Simply install them, manually input settings in BIOS, then everything will be ready to go at full speed. Some CPUs may require additional tweaks to stabilize DDR3-1066, so if you do encounter problems, feel free to let us know and we will be more than glad to help. We will make sure the memory is working fast and stable in your computer. Visit the G.Skill website for complete RMA procedure.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Customer Service

Pros: I bought 2 of these kits for a total of 8gb, but I had a problem at first getting these dual channel kits to work at 1066 and getting my Bios to see all 8gb, but after contacting G-Skill's Tech support, the kits are up and running at full speed. The tech support department at G-Skill went above and beyond to help me set this memory up on my computer. I would not hesitate in the future to pick G-Skill again!

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsGreat RAM

Pros: Installed no problem, booted right up. Smaller heat sinks than the replaced OCZ ram (1 of 4 sticks failed). Now have 4G with 2 sticks instead of 4.

4 out of 5 eggsmemtest failure

Pros: Reasonable price for DDR2 1066

Cons: First pair had a stick that failed MemTest consistantly, RMA'd for new pair.

Other Thoughts: New pair seems to work fine and runs at 1066 on my AMD 790X board with no bios tweek needed.

5 out of 5 eggsExactly as advertised

Pros: I've done a fair bit of comparing the cost of building another PC vs just upgraing my old nVidia 750 board with the Intel Core2Quad Q6600, and I decided to simply doube the ram (from 4Gb to 8Gb), switch to a SSD, and buy another 9800 GT Graphics & simply SLI the two.

Prior to doing anything else, I upgraded the RAM and did notice an immediate performance boost when gaming on one screen & performing other misc. tasks on another screen. Any typical tasks which are RAM hungry (ie multiple programs going at once) enjoy the additional RAM.

Cons: Cost: For about the same price I could have bought double the amount (8Gb) of DDR3, but that would also involve buying a new mobo, cpu, graphics...you get the point. It is pricey RAM but I'm hoping it lasts a few more years.

Other Thoughts: All in all I ended up spending about $275 in upgrades (almost $70 for this RAM, $140 for a 240Gb SSD, and $50 for a used 9800 GT graphics card) but the performance improvements on my almost-5-year-old machine are incredible. I no longer play the latest & greatest games so I'm guessing this most recent upgrade will last me another 2-3 years. Well worth the cost.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat RAM

Pros: Popped it right in, booted right up. 4 sticks running at 400mhz ea on auto. The heat sinks are nice, light, smaller than my old ocz reaper series and are quite effective.
I paid the extra price for 3 day shipping because I'm buying these to replace an old dying 4 gig kit, and I made my order Sunday and received my ram Tuesday morning, made the three day price well worth it because it ended up over night, all this on Christmas eve. great product and once again thanks newegg

Cons: none
