5 out of 5 eggsIt's been 3 years, still going strong :)

Pros: They run great as per the title.

A year ago I had memory related hardware crashes, which unfortunately turned out to be a combination of my defective motherboard and GPU (both have since been replaced)

I plan on grabbing another pair soon to bump up my total to 16gb.

Highly recommended.

Cons: None whatsoever.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Memory for APUs

Pros: Easy install, Lifetime warranty

Cons: None to date

Other Thoughts: I purchased this memory specifcally for AMD APU application. Was running 1333 and replaced it with this....a quick stop in the bios to manually set it at 2133, a reboot, and all was good. Very noticable speed and response in everything the computer does. Have been using APUs for a couple of years now, (one HTPC and one "daily use" computer, and have to say that nothing gives an APU system more "boost" then higher frequency memory.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great as always from G.SKILL

Pros: Works great, and cheaper than other quality brands.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I've bought G.SKILL Ram for a few builds over the years and their memory always works great at a cheaper price than much of the competition.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdated Review

Pros: I wanted to update my review because I do not think I gave G.Skill a fair review. I was able to get the memory running stable at 2133 on my FX8350. Even though the FX8350 memory controller only supports 1866, it is not unusual to run 2133 DDR3 at full speed with the FX processor. After testing my FX8350, I found the max I could OC was 4.1Ghz. Unusual for an FX8350 which is known to OC to as high as 5Ghz. I upped the voltage on the CPU, NB, and memory and set everything to auto except for the memory timings. I set the memory to 2133 with 13-13-13-35 timings and it runs stable. Since then I have dropped the speed to 1866 and timings to 10-11-10-30 as recommended by ASUS. Memory runs fine at 1866 and with lower timings the benchmarks are better than running at 2133.

Cons: Not really any cons, I should have checked the Asus website for DDR3 2133 memory compatibility.

Other Thoughts: After checking the ASUS website I found the G.Skill 1600 and 1866 are compatible with M5A97 r2.0 but not 2133. My fault for not checking the memory compatibility on the ASUS site. Sure enough when I checked the forums, the only DDR3 2133 that folks were able to run at 2133 was the ones listed on ASUS documents. The G.Skill runs fine at the ASUS recommended setting of 1866 10-11-10-30 at 1.5 volts.

So I changed my mind and admit I was a little hasty in my first review. For the cost and the performance I am getting running this memory at 1866, I would say it was a really good deal.

5 out of 5 eggsGood RAM

Pros: - 2133 speed
- Good looking design
- Hasn't failed

Cons: - Wasn't free

Other Thoughts: I had no problems installing this RAM. It went in, I set the proper speed in the BIOS, and it has been running dine ever since. This RAM is decently quick and looks good in the computer. I just wish RAM were cheaper.

This RAM has not given me any trouble, therefore I have no reason to fault it.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It's 2133mhz overclockable RAM. I also have Corsair Vengeance 2133 RAM paired. Not sure if there is a huge difference in gaming between non-OC and OC RAM but for basic OS operations I notice a snappier response in applications, browsing, etc. Basically the same except for form factor. These sit a little tighter to the board but are a bit wider. I would advise to make sure it is compatible, or a similar product is compatible, with your mobo before purchase. See other thoughts for details.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Did not work with first board I purchased but turns out it was the board, not the RAM. However the lesson learned is to check the QVL of the mobo vendor before buying RAM just to make sure the set it supported.

3 out of 5 eggsUnstable above 1600

Pros: Got it on sale for a good price. I installed in new rig with FX 8350 and ASUS M5A97. No problem with memory and got system up and running but memory only runs at 1600.

Cons: I have used G.Skill Ripjaws before. In fact, I have Ripjaws 1600 running OC at 1760 in another system with no problems. After I got my new system up and running, I set the DRAM speed to 2133 - memory LED on ASUS motherboard lit up red and would not boot. I had to reset the memory speed. I next went into BIOS and set the speed to 1866 and same results, red LED and no boot until DRAM was set to 1600. I then used the built in xmp profile and set it to 2133 using the xmp timings. Same result, would not boot. I did get system to boot at 1866 by setting the timing to 11-11-11-30.

Other Thoughts: For the price the memory was a bargain for 2133 ddr; however, for ddr3 1600 it is not a bargain. It seems to me G.Skill is just remarketing ddr3 1600 by boosting the voltage and reprogramming the profiles. I was going to remove the heatsink to see if these were the same chipset at the 1600, but removing the heatsink voids the warranty. Clever way to keep folks from finding out what they are selling.

I have Crucial 1866 that will run at 2133 with no problems. This G.Skill DRAM is not for performance or overclocking RAM.

Manufacturer Response:

.
Dear Customer

Glad to hear you got the RAM at a good price, and have it installed and working well in your AMD FX build. The RAM is guaranteed at the rated specifications so you received nothing less. The AMD FX-8350 CPU supoprts a maximum DRAM Frequency of DDR3-1866, which is why you were able to boot up just fine when set to DDR3-1866. DDR3-2133 requires overclocking, and it will increase CPU memory controller stress beyond what it is capable of, which is why you experience instability. To force the system to run at DDR3-2133, you need to boost the CPU-NB Voltage. Increasing this value will help stabilize the memory controller at a higher frequency than what it is rated for. The only clever way is to know how to properly configure what you are using. This type of information can be new for some builders, so always contact the manufacturer first when encountering issues as they know how to use their own product. This is a high speed, low voltage memory kit that can surely capable of overclocking and performing much better than a DDR3-1600 kit. The G.Skill support team can show you how and make sure your computer is running at maximum speed.

Thank you
