4 out of 5 eggsStated timings for Intel XMP systems only

Pros: Great price, great timings, dem GB's

Cons: This RAM will default to 11-11-11-28 unless your system supports Intel's XMP (i.e. if you run an AMD system). You can change it in the BIOS, but that's a bit of a headache so I took of an egg. Literally the only thing I can complain about this ram.

Other Thoughts: If you want to change your timings, read "Understanding RAM Timings" at hardwaresecrets.com -- it will explain the most important aspects (but there are like 30 other things you can mess up/around with). Oh, and if you do decide to play with timings I recommend you learn how to reset your CMOS first :)

2 out of 5 eggsUnstable with my set-up.

Pros: Nice blue heat sink. Product was delivered on time.

Cons: Installed these on a GIGABYTE GA-Z97-D3H LGA 1150 board with i3-4370 Haswell Dual-Core 3.8GHz with no OC, right off the bat it wouldn't post. Double check the config for proper voltage then reseated the sticks. Still no good. Then took one stick out and left just one in, system rebooted but would get the blue screen every few days after several hours of playing games. Bought the G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 1600 (PC3 12800) Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL to replace since I knew it was bad/incompatible ram. The new sticks worked great with no issues and still runs like a champ under heavy gaming.

Other Thoughts: Not sure if these Ripjaws X are truly bad since i didnt try them on another computer system but I can't use them on this setup. Didn't matter which stick was installed, I would get the blue screen every few days.

Dear Customer

Glad to hear the product was delivered on time and you like the blue heat spreaders. This is a popular memory kit due to the sleek design and vibrant color. It matches very well with many motherboards and cases. The RAM is compatible with the Gigabyte Z97 motherboard and i3-4370 CPU, so it is strange you were having problems. When experiencing strange issues, check for the latest BIOS and test one module at a time to see if one performs differently. Good to hear the other memory kit works better. Make sure to enable XMP Profile in BIOS/EFI and everything should run at full speed. The RipJaws series is perfect for gaming so you should be very pleased with the performance. For any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggs2 years still good

Pros: I just ran a memtest and all is good. It occurred to me that I have had these running regularly since about May of 2013. Stock timings and voltages all the way. Thought someone might be interested, so thought I'd share.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: It's really nice to have things that you don't have to think about because they don't fail, or require any of your time to fool around with them.Too bad more things aren't like that!

5 out of 5 eggsRMA came back SO FAST

Pros: Super Fast RMA. I am very impressed they stand so firmly behind their products. I won't hesitate to buy GSKILL in the future.

Reference previous review:

Cons: A faulty stick will happen. They stand by their product.

Other Thoughts: Pros:

Easy install. Ran at detected speeds. Did not attempt to overclock.

Cons:

After 6 months of use one stick failed. Verified using memtest.

Other Thoughts:

Waiting on RMA from Gskill. If they stand by their product I will update with 5 stars.

Dear Customer

Glad to hear the memory was easy to install and worked well in your computer. If the motherboard supports XMP/DOCP and the CPU supports DDR3-1600, enable the memory profile and that will allow the RAM to run at full speed. This will also ensure that the RAM is always utiliizing the proper settings. With AUTO default values, settings may vary and that can cause the RAM error. But in any case, if the RAM is indeed defective, you are backed by a G.Skill manufacturer lifetime warranty so we can replace it with a new one right away. As long as the RAM is not physically damaged and the warranty sticker is intact, all G.Skill DRAM products will be covered. In other words, you will have good memory in your computer for life. For any further questions or concerns, please feel free to let us know.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsStill having no issue after 4 year of use

Pros: 1- 4 years of intensive use and still having no issue.
2- Latency is 8 instead of 9 which makes difference while needing instant response.
3- Perfect for low budget overclockers of 2011 generation.
4- Its shape perfectly fit for under most CPU heatsink, which is a big plus for the airflow.

Cons: As it was (and still) perfectly fit my criteria, i have no cons against.

5 out of 5 eggsWorking great as always - longterm GSKill user

Pros: Inexpensive, quick timings, heatspreaders, GSkill

Cons: None that I can think of

Other Thoughts: Been using GSKill memory for over 12 years, probably much longer, and I've only ever had to return one set way back. Using Gigabyte Z97-HD3P and the timings are automatically detected once you enable the XMP profile in the BIOS. Memtest came out clear. Guess there's a reason I always just buy GSKill and don't really bother looking around. Using for my DAW (music machine), so while I don't do high end gaming the stuff I do does indeed use a LOT of memory (large sample banks, etc).
