5 out of 5 eggsF3-12800CL8T-6GBRM

Pros: Works fantastic with ASUS Rampage III Formula. Like many other reviews here, the true test is time. System originally detects @ 1333, but when the correct XMP (extreme memory profile) is selected, I was successfully able to achieve a stable 4.2 Ghz overclock with minimal effort on an Intel i7 970. Ran successfully for 7 months at these speeds. I geared CPU down to stock a few months ago to preserve CPU life for the long term, but wanted to let everyone know that this RAM was rock solid every step of the way.

Cons: This is NOT a con but a frustration in that I am ready to get my second set for 12 GB on this board, but like many great products here at Newegg, it consistently sells out and now that the motherboard standards are moving away from the LGA1366 platform, I urge anyone who needs this RAM not to wait. Eventually it will become very scarce. Still waiting for AUTONOTIFY to let me know they have this back in stock =)

Other Thoughts: Relevant Config:

waiting for 6 Gb more

Heh, I was hoping to upload a jpg of my Windows 7 Performance Index - looks like only videos are allowed but I wanted all of you to know that this RAM scored the only 7.9 (perfect score) on an overall 7.8 rated system performance index. Very impressed with this quality and stability.

5 out of 5 eggsGot some more

Pros: Great ram! Fast with no problems. Unlike everything else in life, this got cheaper.

Cons: Waited over a year to get a full 12 gb!

Other Thoughts: Like others on this ram's review, I got 6 gb and waited a year to upgrade to 12 gb. I had never used g.skill before (used sailing ship company) but now after a year care free use, this is the first place I look for memory! I have no idea why this ram isn't always sold out.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Good

Pros: Still works over a year later.

Cons: It is now cheaper than it was when I first bought it.

Other Thoughts: I can't say I know a lot about RAM, but after doing my research, this is the one I purchased. Over a year later, it is cheaper and I am now looking to buy this set again to increase my computer's RAM.

At the very least, I am a happy, repeat customer.

4 out of 5 eggsOne Year Later

Pros: When I first got these I didn't even KNOW how fast these could be. I ran everything I wanted, all at the same time. Unfortunately a year later I'm having problems...

Cons: ...I have these clocked at 1600 Mhz, I've tried Windows Memory Diagnostic, but as of about a week ago, at random times my memory usage will shoot up to around 98%, rendering my previously limitless computer, snail-slow...It does that for about 10 minutes then goes back to normal. Which I don't like, I have important things to be doing while my RAM slowly eats my precious time.

When I try to restart my computer, it takes a second and says some application needs to close, but when I check what it is, there's a blank space! So I don't know what the problem is!

Other Thoughts: For reference, heres my setup

Dear Customer

Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. We will be glad to help get your computer operating stable at full speed. AMD CPUs do not natively support DDR3-1600, so manual settings are required to operate at maximum performance. Please use this guide to configure your BIOS:

If you still have issues and need assistance, please let us know and we can guide you and get your computer running at the best performance.

Dear Customer

Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. Glad to hear you enjoy this memory kit. The low latency allows for a quick system. So especially with your triple channel platform, it should be capable of intense workloads. Upgrading to 12GB will make it capable of editing, rendering, and similar professional work. You should be very satisfied with the performance. If you have any questions or issues, please feel free to contact us directly.

Thank you

3 out of 5 eggsTook 2 x RMAs

Pros: Quick, and easy to set up

Cons: Took 2 x RMAs to finally get a working set. Maybe I just had bad luck my first 2 sets.

First set I RMAd to NewEgg after finding out one of the sticks was defective causing my PC to BSOD on cold boots consistently.

The 2nd set I RMAd to GSkill themselves. I was getting the dreaded 1.99GB usable error. I tried and gave it more endless hours of troubleshooting. MCH Strap, Memory Low Gap, etc...

GSkill handled the RMA well and I got my RAM back in about a week from when I sent it out. So kudos to them for that.

3rd set of RAM I'm on seems to be doing fine so far. No BSOD, no 1.99GB usable. So I'm giving this set of RAM 3/5 for now.

Dear Customer

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. It is odd that you had so many problems; glad to hear it has been resolved. This memory should work well in any triple channel motherboard, so your X58 chipset should not have a problem. Should you have any questions or issues in the future, please feel free to contact us directly and we will be glad to assist you.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsOnce more!

Pros: Stable
Looks OK
Nice heat sink
CHEAP!!!!!

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: Bought this memory to pair up with these same 3x2's I bought last year. Now filled out the 6 memory slots on my asus motherboard to 12Gb. My overclocked i7-930 has no issues with this memory while running at 4Ghz.
