5 out of 5 eggsOh, Man!

Pros: G.Skill - always works.
G.Skill - looks cool.
G.Skill - Survives well-intentioned, technically uninformed yet eager OC'ers, UG'ers and SysBldr's who have not yet taken the time to educate themselves.

Cons: G.Skill is not free.
G.Skill does not provide extra heatsinks for tricking-out kitchen appliances and shop tools. I could machine my own, but they would not be authorized nor authentic.

Other Thoughts: Bought these to relocate the heatsinks to my kitchen mixer so it too would look 'G.Skill'. I will share photos when you have overhauled Congress and executed proper Tort, Insurance and Tax Reforms.
That will get you mixer pictures - eliminate Lawyers and I will share my Chopped 'No Bays' ATX Box (with Custom Paint and Mfr Badges) pix.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as Advertised

Pros: Price, performance.

Cons: None that I am aware of.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you retain the cheap clamshell packaging your RAM comes in; if you need to RMA you will need this packaging; it has the serial number(s) on it and it must match if you RMA. I made the mistake of tossing the packaging on some much more expensive DDR4 memory for another rig and two of the sticks were bad. I could not RMA those so I had to eat it.

3 out of 5 eggsNo 1866 here

Pros: Price

Cons: Did not work well at advertised speed with my gear.

Other Thoughts: This RAM defaults at 1600, but you can change this by manually overclocking in the motherboard bios/setup. Mine refused to boot at 1866 with memory timings on "AUTO." I could get it to work fine if I went in manually and adjusted timings. I decided to just run it at default to avoid problems. I built a budget desktop system with some extra parts including 320GB HD, SATA DVD-RW and onboard video. The following were purchased new:

1 x AMD A6-6400K Richland Dual-Core 3.9GHz Socket FM2 65W AD640KOKHLBOX Desktop Processor - Black Edition
.
MSI A78M-E35 FM2+ / FM2 AMD A78 (Bolton D3) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL9D-4GBXM

Maybe other motherboards and gear combos have better luck running at 1866. Would buy again at the price point.

4 out of 5 eggsIssue With 1866 But it works!

Pros: Cheap. quality, heatsink, works(not DOA). decent shipping.

Cons: Used this ram on my initial build. Bought 4 more GBs as an upgrade. I was able to run the initial 4GBs@1866 before I installed this ram but now whenever I try to modify it to 1866 I get a bios error and have to reload optimized defaults. Works as intended, shipping was 4 days, good quality ram, low price. Just 4/5 because it doesn't want to go at 1866 and I can't seem to find out why. I've heard about an issue like this with my cpu (FX 8150) maybe thats why.

Other Thoughts: mobo: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950

cpu: AMD FX-8150 Zambezi 8-Core 3.6GHz Socket AM3+ 125W

ram: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (4 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 performing at 1600

psu: RAIDMAX RX-635AP 635W ATX 12V v2.3/EPS 12V

gpu: ASUS ENGTX460 DirectCU TOP/2DI/768MD5 GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 768MB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16

os: Win 7 Ult

Dear Customer

Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. Glad to hear the memory is working well in your system. Getting the system to work with full slots of DDR3-1866 can be tricky, but we will be glad to help. Keep in mind AMD states ONE DIMM PER CHANNEL for DDR3-1866+, which is why you are getting errors and stability issues. Try boosting the CPU-NB Voltage and/or DRAM Voltage to provide the necessary boost the memory controller needs to stabilize the RAM. If you continue to have an issue, please contact the G.Skill support team directly. Once you are through with us, your computer will be fast and smooth.

Thank you

Pros: Fast + Cheap

Cons: No idea

Other Thoughts: Bought this for my-
ASUS A88XM-PLUS
AMD Athlon x4 750k Black Box Edition
-it took awhile for me to figure out how to get the ram to run at 1866, till i discovered the D.O.C.P. option in the bios and selected the appropriate profile.

4 out of 5 eggsThe memory operated as it should.

Pros: The memory operated at the specified timings, frequency and voltage.

Cons: I should have initially chosen an 8GB set of memory for my Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit build. My AMD A8-5500 APU required over 700MB of system memory to operate effectively leaving the system with roughly 50MB of free memory after Windows had loaded.

Other Thoughts: The memory operated as it should, and setting it to the proper speed and timings in the motherboard BIOS was easy.

I just wasn't pleased with the Windows Experience Index score of 5.9. After removing this set of memory and installing a larger 8GB set of memory with the same speed and timings the WEI increased to 7.2.

Dear Customer

Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. Glad to hear the memory worked at the rated specifications. This is a high speed memory kit that can perform extremely fast. With today's memory intensive processes, 8GB is definitely better to maintain a smooth oeprating system. For basic word processing or internet browsing, 4GB is still effective. For any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsAs expected

Pros: No issues to report. Ram installed/runs with no issues at advertised speeds.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: G.Skill has pulled me away from other "better" (and more expensive) ram with my last few builds. Normally a Corsair user, I've had no issues with GSkill to report.

1 out of 5 eggsBlue screened again

Pros: Maybe none :(!

Cons: I wrote a review for this memory yesterday saying this:
"Took a lot of trials, but finally appears stable at 1833 on my ASRock FM2A88M-HD+ main board (Prime95 and Live Streaming HD viewing). Had to set the DRAM voltage to the max available, 1.74V instead of the normal 1.55V. Tried the advanced timing settings but they actually hurt, best results being with auto timing. I also had to raise the A6-5400K core voltage from normal 1.400V to 1.525V (max memory spec 1866), presumably to achieve memory controller compatibility with the voltage boosted DRAM -- definitely not needed in order to raise cpu core speed, it'll run stabler 4400GHz at 1.400V."

I've two corrections to make.
1) The CPU core voltage had to be raised to 1.4125V from 1.4000V, not to 1.525 -- huge difference, sorry about that!
2) The darned thing blue screened again during the second to last end of a tight Olympic curling match.

This memory just seems to be unreliable, works great at 1600. Am trying the advanced timing setting once again but that's just my desperation since both available settings have previously failed.

Other Thoughts: This memory should not have been sold as DDR3 1866 -- maybe I was just unlucky?

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer

You are raising the wrong voltages. The DRAM Voltage does not need to be raised at all unless you are overclocking the RAM. The RAM is guaranteed at the rated specifications so they will operate as stated. CPU Core Voltage is for CPU frequency overclocking. This does not need to be touched at all for the RAM. The CPU-NB is the memory controller voltage that you may need to increase for DDR3-1866. Increase this value by ~0.05V and it should improve stability. If you continue to have problems, please contact the G.Skill support team for assistance. They will make sure the RAM is running fast and stable in your computer. That is the G.Skill guarantee.

Thank you

3 out of 5 eggsA little dissapointed

Pros: Took a lot of trials, but finally appears stable at 1833 on my ASRock FM2A88M-HD+ main board (Prime95 and Live Streaming HD viewing). Had to set the DRAM voltage to the max available, 1.74V instead of the normal 1.55V. Tried the advanced timing settings but they actually hurt, best results being with auto timing. I also had to raise the A6-5400K core voltage from normal 1.400V to 1.525V (max memory spec 1866), presumably to achieve memory controller compatibility with the voltage boosted DRAM -- definitely not needed in order to raise cpu core speed, it'll run stabler 4400GHz at 1.400V.

Cons: Yes, it'll run at 1866, but without any voltage margin. G.Skill 1600 always works fine at 1.55V, just glad this Ripjaws seems to be OK at 1.74V. Need more time really to make sure -- just got it working seeming stable yesterday.

Other Thoughts: I just don't expect memory to be near the very edge of its capability when operated at its frequency spec. If I were pushing an o/c sure, but this is a spec application!

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer

We can help you configure the RAM correctly. Your current method is not correct to stabilize DDR3-1866. Instead of raising the DRAM Voltage, you need to raise the CPU/APU-NB Voltage to give the memory controller the necessary boost it needs to stabilize the high speed RAM. The CPU Core Voltage is for CPU Frequency overclocking, so you do not need to adjust that for RAM. This memory kit is rated for 1.55V, so you can be certain that it will operate at that voltage with the proper settings. For all further questions and concerns, please contact us directly. The G.Skill support team will make sure the memory is working, as specified, in your computer.

Thank you
