5 out of 5 eggsSolid Deal

Pros: RAM still running like a boss. No issues over the last year that I've been running the stick, it still passes all the memory tests. Just ordered another DIMM to upgrade my system to 8GB!
$30 a DIMM!

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: The red heat sink is a nice effect, as always

Pros: Ran great and was a drop in install

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Not related to the product, but I needed more RAM. I swapped this for the identical series in 2x8GB sticks.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA?

Pros: It didn't kill me, even though it frustrated me and wasted my time!

Cons: Spent a couple of days to finally figure out that the RAM was either DOA (most likely) or incompatible. Tested in 2 motherboards (MSI H81M-P33 and Gigabyte GA-H81M-DS2V) which would seem to have no problem with it. However, neither board (now confirmed to be working) would post after reseating the RAM multiple times in different slots etc. I even swapped out the CPU and tried 2 different power supplies.
With this RAM, the Gigabyte board gave abnormal beep codes as well (power error), rather than the typical long repeated beeps when RAM is missing/not working as intended.

Other Thoughts: In the end, I tried a cheap single Kingston DIMM from a local store, and both motherboards posted instantly.

I read that some GSKILL RAM has issues with cold booting, but am unsure if that's related to this problem. Either way, I'm probably not buying this brand again.

Dear Customer

We are sorry you had such issues. In the future, feel free to contact us directly and we will be glad to help. When experiencing possible memory problems, test one stick at a time to see if the system can be stable with a single module. If both modules have a similar problem, check for the latest BIOS/EFI. It is unlikely both modules are defective the same way. If one stick performs differently than the other, then it may be a defective module. Send them in for RMA exchange and a new kit should work better. This is a high performance memory that will work great for the LGA 1150 motherboards.

Thank you

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Say's it's good memory never got a chance to use it

Cons: i installed it on my Asrock Z68 pro gen 3 motherboard and what happen was amazing. PC didn't boot up and a smell came from the case. i opened up the case and saw it was coming from the RAM slot. I took out the ram and next thing you know i see one of this ram that i purchased one of the gold ram parts where chipped in half ( and surprisingly it was only 1 gold slot that was chipped in half lolol what does that tell you). and it messed up my Motherboard as well. After i did a RMA on my motherboard i put back my old ram just the way i put in these new ones and everything worked perfect. i really don't know what newegg gave me but it was a faulty ram that they gave. I called newegg to get a RMA on this ram and they told me that it was my fault that this happened and didn't install it properly. lololol to them for trying to sell a faulty ram and not wanting to replace it . How is it that i have build all my friends computer and i even put in my old ram in my RMAed board and none of this has happened. I am really scared to buy RAM from newegg now.

Other Thoughts: this happened in 2012 and i have not bought ram from newegg ever since. I still can't believe they sold me a faulty ram and they blamed me for it. Since 2009 i have been building PC's and not one accident like this has happened to me. And i have not bought a single computer hardware from newegg ever since. just reading how people are getting DAO computer hardware makes me not want to buy it from here. i only buy from the manufactured websites now. If i do decide to buy from here i hope i don't get another faulty hardware because that will completely do it for me.

Dear Customer

We are sorry to hear you had such issues. Defective memory will either not boot, or boot up but have errors. The RAM module itself can not cause spark unless it is not in full contact with the motherboard memory slots. In the future, make sure to fully press down on each end of the RAM. They should click right in with a solid sound. If not, try it again, it does not hurt to try several times. It is more important to get a feel that everything is installed properly. Should you need any help with it or have any further questions, please feel free to contact us directly.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsReliable, established DDR3 by G.SKILL

Pros: I'll throw in a brief plug for this item, although even "mainstreamers" will be less likely to buy it at this stage of DDR3 technology: it's only a 4GB=2x2GB kit of these "Gerbils" as I like to call them.

The -GBRL RipJaws RAM kits were superb. I bought them initially in 2011 for a Sandy Bridge computer project. A year later, I added a second kit to fill all four slots. I soon discovered -- putting together responses from G.SKILL tech support and tech-forum veterans -- that you could run 4x4GB of these GBRL DDR3-1600 RAMs @ DDR3-1866 with 10-10-10-32 timings. Under that configuration, you would not need to increase VDIMM voltage beyond the 1.5V spec; you would only need to bump up the VCCIO or similar voltage for the Integrated Memory Controller by maybe 0.13V and well within the recommended limit of 1.2V

A year afterward, I replaced the 4x4GB configuration with 2x8GB of G.SKILL RipJaws Z - 16GZH so I could use the Gerbils in another system.

We decided, for my brother's new machine, to give it an extra 4GB of RAM because we are using a RAM-caching solution to speed up both the Sammy 840 boot drive and an SSD-cached HDD. Bro would never need 16GB.

It might have been "cost-effective" to get the 2x4GB kit of Gerbils for $60-something. But our need was limited, and the ~ $40 pricetag on these was good enough.

Cons: None. I like to be a wise shopper and keep the manufacturers jumping to do better. But if you find a product line that performs well through two or more generations (DDR, DDR2, DDR3, etc.), it has "hidden" capabilities (see other thoughts) that other RAM-makers might actually discourage, and the tech support is always quick and responsive (also see "other thoughts") by E-MAIL, you become a loyal customer.

Other Thoughts: I may have said that these modules -- whether 2x2, 2x4 or 4x4 configurations -- will run at DDR3-1866 10-10-10 and their spec voltage. I forgot to mention that they will run at CMD=1 or CR=1 -- the command-rate. And that's probably the BIGGEST if not the only reason that the IMC voltage needs a little extra boost.

I've occasionally had two G.SKILL RAM modules out a dozen 2x kits arrive defective or just "go bad." "SH-tuff happens." They've got a good track record on their QC-defective rate, but this is surpassed by the quick RMA turnaround and reliability if you have to send a module or kit back.
