5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works well, though a little hotter then I would prefer.
Most motherboards will require you to set the speed and voltage manually (not problem, just annoying).

Cons: Ram has to have 1.6v to run stable at 2133MHz.

Other Thoughts: CPU ** AMD A8-6600K 3.9GHz Quad-Core Processor
MB ** Gigabyte GA-F2A88XN-WIFI Mini ITX FM2+ Motherboard
Ram ** G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-2133 Memory
HD ** Seagate 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Hybrid Internal Hard Drive
Case ** Cooler Master Elite 130 Mini ITX Tower Case
PSU ** Corsair CX 430W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply

5 out of 5 eggsEh looks and great performance

Pros: Always higher quality memory. I upgraded one of my older computers with the same amount of memory and usage dropped 20%.Got this for my new gaming computer along with a i3-4330 and a gtx 760 and the performance is great.

Cons: I like the simpler heat spreaders on the lower end models but this is overshadowed by my cpu cooler anyway so not much to see.

3 out of 5 eggsUnstable at 2133, but solid at 1866

Pros: Look good. Work nicely at 1866.

Cons: I bought these to make a low-end gaming PC with a AMD APU. I know that APUs work better with higher speed RAM, so I paid a little more to get 2133 capability. Unfortunately, when I run the RAM at 2133 (with a variety of timings attempted), my system goes very unstable - basically, whenever I do anything video intensive (like, say, playing a game) I get about 15 minutes of play before my screen goes completely black and my system is completely nonresponsive.

Everything is rock-steady at 1866 (and has been for 1.5 months now), so I know it's the RAM. I e-mailed G.Skill tech support to get some suggestions for how to make it better, but never got a reply. Like I said, they run fine at 1866 and it's more than fast enough for my needs, so I'm not horribly upset, but just a warning that they might not be the most stable at 2133 for you either.

Other Thoughts: As others have said, they're a little tall, so don't buy them if you're worried about space above your RAM slots.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer

Glad to hear you think the memory looks good and they work nicely in your system. We can surely help you reach the rated specifications. Not all CPUs can natively support DDR3-2133, so you may have one that needs to be tweaked in order to fully stabilize DDR3-2133. The common solution is to raise the CPU-NB Voltage to boost the memory controller and that should allow the system to be stable with high speed RAM. Should you continue to have issues, please feel free to contact us directly and we will be glad to assist you. If unable to reach us via email, telephone and forum support is also available for your convenience. Once you get a hold of us, we will make sure the RAM operates at maximum performance. With regards to heat spreader clearance, the modules are 38mm tall, so they will clear most large aftermarket CPU coolers, but they may have issues in small form factor cases. We can confirm or answer any questions you may have.

Thank you

Quality and customer service are our top priorities.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Ram

Pros: Easy to acheave 2140 MHZ on my AMD Asus Mobo with uef bios.

Cons: None. Heat sinks are tall and may interfere with some CPU coolers...

Other Thoughts: Windows 7 - 64bit can not use more than 8 gig of ram. Anything more is just used for prefetch for future CPU use , and is wasted. Buy faster Ram and don't get more than 8 Gig. I monitor performance and ram use in computing never exceeds 8 Gig...

5 out of 5 eggsQuick RAM

Pros: This RAM helped my system get to a 7.4 on Windows experience index for memory operations per second.

Even though package doesn't specifically state it this Ram does work well with AMD FM2 processors.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: When installing this RAM check your memory speed in your BIOS to make sure it is set to 2133. Mine was at 1600 on initial install. It's a quick fix but if you overlook it you will have slower RAM for no reason.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as Advertised

Pros: Had no problems getting these to advertised speeds on the GIGABYTE GA-F2A88XM-HD3.
They had a noticeable impact on the performance of the A10-6800k I pair with them.

Cons: I don't like the 1.6V necessary for the higher clock speeds. I wouldn't call it a con, as it is obviously listed in the specs.
The fins on the heatspreaders interfered with mounting a Hyper T4 in the system. I can't imagine they make much a difference besides aesthetics. Again, they're clearly not advertised as low profile so I can't fault them for it, I just don't see why they couldn't have been.

Other Thoughts: They worked and clocked to advertised speeds and timings. I had no issues during stress tests. These are affordable and reliable, as I've come to expect from G.Skill RAM. If I need something similar I will be keeping these in mind.
