5 out of 5 eggsWorked with some tweaking

Pros: Runs at specified timings and voltage when not on the QVL for either my Asus M5A99FX Pro 2.0 and my AMD FX-8120.
I had overclocked the system on Patriot 16GB (2x8GB) 1600Mhz CL9 with 1.5V, so I needed to restore default clocks before manually setting the timings on 2 sticks. The voltage was picked up fine and the BIOS didn't know the correct timings. I was able to boot on what my BIOS wanted, then CPU-Z showed me the current timings and what the 2133Mhz timings should be. I rebooted, carefully set timings, and viola! I then put my other two sticks in, and booted with no trouble. 16Gb (4x4GB) runs fine with my above stated equip. Not only that, but the color and heatsinks look nice with this MoBo. Can't speak for benches yet, and won't test until I put my FX-8320 in and Overclock back to 4.0 like my FX-8120 was set to. I will update the post then.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: Just know that it takes patience and time to carefully use BIOS generated profiles and let the OS and CPU-Z tell you what the other XMP profiles look like, that way you can compare the timings and descriptions to manually set in the BIOS Advanced Settings.

2 out of 5 eggsfailed memtest86+ on bench test

Pros: Nice price for specs, loved reviews.

Cons: Installed these in my new ASUS-Pro MB with 4670K, ran Memtest86+ boot on bench. Got 3 fails and 47 errors at less than 50% test complete.

Dear Customer

Glad to hear you got a nice price on this memory kit. This high speed, high capacity RAM should have outstanding results. Since it is above standard, don't forget to configure settings in BIOS/EFI. With that motherboard and CPU, enable XMP, then everything should run at full speed. Without the proper settings, the system may be unstable. To determine whether it is a problem with the memory, test each stick individually. If one performs differently, then indeed a module is defective and needs to be replaced. For all further questions and concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us directly. We will make sure the RAM performs flawlessly in your computer.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsGood Memory

Pros: I've had these running for 27 months straight 24/7. It's a fast reliable kit with decent timings. I see a lot of 2133mhz kits these days that have looser timings which is typically not as fast.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsNo Prob w/XMP

Pros: XMP settings worked w/4 slots filled, without timing or volt tweaks on my Z87 and with CPU overclocked. The sinks look good to me also.

Cons: None since I bought 4 of these and all passed memtest86 out of the box.

Other Thoughts: The memory works as described in specs with a capable motherboard..

5 out of 5 eggsBulletproof

Pros: I don't have to worry. Benchmarks like a champ and heat is not an issue, even in a moderately ventilated case.

This was my first G Skill purchase, they now have a returning customer. I just purchased another set to max out my dimms.

I am currently using my i5 gaming rig to run Computational Fluid Dynamics (modeling software) which is the equivalent of benchmarking your PC everyday. I originally kept an eye on my stats, but she runs through hours of heavy load without a care.

Cons: Uh, not free?

5 out of 5 eggsGreat RAM

Pros: I love this RAM, i just got another 8gb and run 16 overall. 16 is alot but i do many things at once on my computer such as gaming movies and music with some video transcoding as well and this RAM is up to the task.

I run even tighter timings than stock with no issues, currently run 8-9-9-23 timings and its flawless.

very impressed with gskill and will only utilize them for now on

Cons: n/a

2 out of 5 eggsGood while it lasted.

Pros: These are NOT 2133 sticks. These are 1600 sticks with a suggested overclock. I bought 4 of these sticks total, 2 at a time, about 6 months between purchases. They worked great, but not for long.

Cons: The first pair started experiencing boot failures around 3 months after purchase due to overclocking when summer rolled around, had to clock them down to 1600 to keep the machine running. Well ventilated case.
Problem #1: Recommended overclocking has little environmental tolerance.

A little over a year after purchasing my youngest pair, one of these sticks has became unstable (At factory recommended 2133 speed) and will no longer allow my machine to boot properly. It will not function appropriately at 1600 or 2133 speed. I have since had to replace the pair.
Problem #2: If you can keep this RAM clocked up to advertised settings, the lifespan of the hardware will probably suffer greatly.

Other Thoughts: False advertisement. I don't recommend this product. Since RAM prices have dropped, do yourself a favor and buy REAL 2133 speed RAM.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer

All DDR3 modules follow a standard known as JEDEC. The JEDEC standard is DDR3-1333 CL9 and DDR3-1600 CL11. Any memory kit better than these specifications will be considered "overclocking" and an XMP (Extreme Memory Profile) is designed and embedded in the modules to contain the rated performance values of the RAM. This memory kit is rated for DDR3-2133 CL9, so with a capable CPU and motherboard, simply enable the XMP Profile in BIOS/EFI and the memory can operate at full speed. By leaving all settings to AUTO, and not enabling the XMP Profile, the memory can only default up to the standard JEDEC values as mentioned above. This is the same for any performance RAM on the market, there is no other "REAL" DDR3-2133 RAM. A DDR3 motherboard can not automatically default to DDR3-2133. If you are having issues with your memory kit, don't worry, we are here to help. Contact the G.Skill support team with hardware specifications and we will be glad to troubleshoot the problem. If a module is defective or not working to specification, we can have it replaced right away. We will make sure the RAM is running fast and stable in your computer at full speed. That is the G.Skill guarantee. For any further questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us directly.

Thank you
