2 out of 5 eggscalliehf

Pros: Quality memory, great price

Cons: Except for being bigger, same specs as my previous memory but it won't run

Other Thoughts: I wanted to run 16 GB Ram, I'm currently at 4 GB

Biostar TH55B HD motherboard, about 4 yrs old....runs great with GSkill F3-12800CL9D-4GBNQ 2GB x 2 DDR3 1600 is working fine with 4 GB total, (but only running at 1333.) AMI Bios IH55E-MHT

Running Windows 7 64 bit. Intel Core i3 530, Intel, 1156 chipset 650 watt PSU, AMD videocard

Just purchased G.Skill F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL DDR3 -1600, 4X4 = 16 GB,from NewEgg. Board is rated for 16 GB. 4 Sticks Tried INSTALLING all 16 GB at once, but it hangs at the bios screen. i Tried just 8 in the 2 red A1 slots, same result. Tried the other 2 new ones, same result. MIxed, same again. Always boots right back into Windows 7 when I put the old 4 GB back in. Here is the memory guide from Biostar......
http://www.biostar-usa.com/app/en-us..._ID=466#memory

G.Skill F3-12800CL9D-4GBNQ DDR3 -1600 2X2 = 4 GB
G.Skill F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL DDR3 - 1600, 4X4 = 16 GB

I I could get it to work, I'd give it 5 Eggs. It has all the same specs, you'd think it would / should. I sure hate to RMA this!

5 out of 5 eggsFlawless memory

Pros: Quality design and manufacturing. I've owned other memory sticks with heat spreaders that felt as though they were simply going to break or fall off the DIMM using the necessary pressure inserting them in the motherboard. Not so with this product. Mainly, because the heat spreader design makes it completely unnecessary to apply pressure to anything but the DIMM itself. This would seem to be common sense when designing a product like this, but apparently it isn't always the case.

Initial installation in my MSI x79a-GD45 plus motherboard was problematic. Memtest reported multiple failures beginning with Test 3, and if I hadn't researched MSI's website for both that specific motherboard as well as MSI's forums, I would not have known it wasn't at all the fault of the G.SKILL ram, but that of the motherboard itself. A bios update eliminated this memory problem completely, and I've never had Memtest fail using the aforementioned motherboard or this ram in any of the three boards I currently have it installed in.

While I cannot say this ram is actually faster than other brands (G.SKILL is all I use for DDR3 now), I can safely say I'm completely satisfied with it's performance in the gaming systems I've installed it in. Games such as the entire Battlefield series save Hardline (I don't particularly care for that addition to the BF franchise), Shadow of Mordor, Metro 2033, Metro Last Light, The Witcher series, Crysis series... pretty much any and all AAA titles out there in the RPG, FPS, RTS, and 4X Strategy genres.

I read all the time, as I'm sure many of you do, how this game or that game will not work on someone's system. These claims made by people who swear it's 'not their system', because game X, Y, and Z run, just not game W. Well, if I can play ANY game I've ever installed including these games (pretty much any and every game on Steam or Origin) that people claim are broken, then it MUST be their system. I have over 1,000 games on Steam, over 50 on Origin, a few dozen on GoG, some on Desura, well, you get the picture. Quality products, used correctly and not abused (extreme overclocking can easily cause system instability, which is sometimes difficult to accept for some). This ram lightly overclocked has yet to give me any problems, but for the record, I run it stock speed 90% of the time, and currently it's stock speed, along with my Intel i7-3820 processor.

So basically, in the three gaming systems I have at home right now, my two sons and mine, we have zero issues and all have this ram installed. Of course when I upgrade around Christmas I'll still use G.SKILL, but it will be their DDR4 memory, of which I have little doubt it will be of the same high quality found here.

Cons: I have a Cooler Master Hyper 212 plus installed on all home gaming systems (or variants of... the EVO on one system) and I know on my system the heatsink just barely clears the rather high heat spreader on the ram in the first DIMM slot. Just something to keep in mind, though I doubt it will be an issue for most boards out there, unless those ram slots are even closer than those on my MSI board as mentioned above.

Other Thoughts: Always check the manufacturer's website of your motherboard for updated bios and/or drivers if and when having any issues with your system. Generally, I'd recommend NOT updating firmware UNLESS you're having an issue, and that issue is specifically addressed, and even then only as a last resort. It's far too easy to brick a system (even with the 'dual bios switch'). Personally, I've never fried a board updating the bios, but have seen people who THOUGHT they did, as well as people who actually have. Neither is an exciting, fun experience!

1 out of 5 eggsWouldn't recommend to anyone.

Pros: Its ram

Cons: Long story short me and roommate both got this kind of ram and both stopped working in under a month.
My roommate and I both built computers around the same time. We both got this kind of ram coincidentally, seeing how many good reviews it had. I built my computer and three weeks later one of the sticks of ram started causing infinite blue screen restart loops. A week after he built his the same exact thing happen to both sticks of his ram. Needless to say this was extremely frustrating for both of us. Please keep us in your prayers so that our returned ram will allow our poor, blind, deaf, gluten intolerant, children to feel the warm hum of our computers.

Other Thoughts: Maybe this is a fluke from a bad batch of ram...maybe.

Manufacturer Response:

.
Dear Customer

We will be glad to help with this issue. This memory kit is above standard, so make sure to configure settings in BIOS/EFI. Without proper configuration, it is possible for the RAM to corrupt and fail over time. If the motherboard supports XMP/DOCP, and the CPU is capable of DDR3-1600, enable the memory profile and that will the system to detect and adjust all memory values automatically. When experiencing strange stability issues, test one module at a time to determine whether the issue is a stick a RAM. If so, feel free to send them in for RMA exchange and a new kit should work better. For all further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome set of RAM

Pros: Installed this kit in every build I've done for myself and has been absolutely perfect in every instance. No issues with compatibility or incorrect speed display. If this kit goes on sale for <$60, scoop them up.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: First and only set of RAM I have purchased for myself. The taller heat spreaders on this kit can interfere with some CPU air coolers or water cooling radiators, please inspect your case and setup before you purchase, make sure they will actually fit.

5 out of 5 eggsjust what I needed

Pros: Works perfectly!

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: RAM: it either works or it doesn't. If it doesn't, you either bought the wrong type or it's just dead from factory.
