1 out of 5 eggsFails Memtest86 Hammer test

Pros: None

Cons: Consistently gets over 1200 errors per pass of the hammer test. I have a set of HyperX and G.SKill Ares that don't have any errors with the hammer test.

RMA isn't free since you have to pay to ship it to G.Skill.

Doubtful that RMA will solve the problem since all F3-17000CL9D-8GBXM I've come across has this problem.

Other Thoughts: Specs has refresh period (tREF) of 7.8us but the RAM gets over 1200 errors per pass on hammer test. I tried 3.9us and it was still getting 10-20 errors per pass. A value closer to 3.0us allows it to pass the hammer test but decreases bandwidth by around 5%.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer

We are sorry to hear you had such issues. Not sure what is your hardware model to check the compatibility for you at this time, but please kindly update the latest version of motherboard BIOS, clear CMOS then enable XMP profile for another try. Or you can contact the G.Skill technical support team with hardware information and they will be glad to assist you.

Thank you

3 out of 5 eggs4x DIMMS not running at 2133

Pros: Like a few purchasers, I've been running 2x DIMMs of these F3-17000CL9D's for some time at their advertised 2133 timings. My G.Skill Ripjaws have never glitched or caused a restart, even through multiple system upgrades. Been dragging my feet on a purchase of 2 more DIMMs (for 16GB's total) and finally made the plunge in prep for this winter's new crop of games. Cannot beat Newegg's price for this flavor.

Cons: A reviewer from 12/05/2014 got the following response from a G.Skill rep: "Depending on CPU used, DDR3-2133 may not be fully supported, especially 4 modules."

Obviously, I've run into problems now that I'm trying to run 4x DIMMs. My Sandy Bridge i7-2600K and ASRock P67 Extreme6 motherboard have never been a cause for concern before. After reading this customer service post, I'm a little concerned. I've been unable to determine the validity of the rep's warning even after surfing the G.Skill forums.

My system refuses to load Win7 3X, boots to the UEFI where I've made several attempts at selecting the appropriate XMP profile, and will then grudgingly bring up Win7. With the BIOS pointing to the 2133 XMP profile and all other settings on AUTO, CPU-Z & Speccy both show all for of my DIMMs running at 11-11-11-28 timings.

While I've doubled my RAM headroom to 16GB, I've somehow managed to gimp the rest of my system with these low timings.

While setup issues and tweaks to my UEFI configuration were to be expected, not being warned anywhere that attempting to run 4 identical 4GB DIMMs was fraught with system bugs is a foul on someone's part.

Other Thoughts: I still like G.Skill products, but if I had any inclination that this setup would prove as difficult as it has, I would have opted for 2x 8GB 2133 DIMMS. As it stands my PC is not running the way it should with this level of tech.

Hi William

Glad to hear this memory kit has been working well in your system. With two separate memory kits of RAM, the rated specifications are not guaranteed if used simultaneously in a system. Only one kit of RAM should be used in each computer for optimal performance. Though in your particular case, sounds like the two kits are working, but may need some tweaking to determine maximum capabilities. With 8GB kits, the XMP Profile is programmed for 8GB of memory. To attempt two separate kits, manual BIOS/UEFI configuration is required. Basic settings such as DRAM Frequency, timings, and Voltage need to be input, and you may also need to boost VCCIO Voltage to help the CPU memory controller support full slots of DDR3-2133. If you need further assistance, please feel free to contact us directly. We can make sure G.Skill RAM is operating at maximum performance in your computer.

Thank you

4 out of 5 eggsQuality product

Pros: So, product as described, delivered the newegg way.... incredibly fast.. cannot say enough great things about my experiences with "THE EGG" they rock... Regarding the Ram, While I am well versed and educated on how ram works and the need to set the overclock preset configuration XMP profile, the ram 2133 speed ram I purchased defaulted at 1233 not the standard 1600mhz that it defaults too for most people. This is interesting because I've installed it on a Z97 Asrock Fatality Pro motherboard (New), A board that is capable of hitting memory speed of 3000+ Over all, I am happy with my purchase, the ram was worth the cost.

Cons: Would be nice is XMP preset could auto config themselves,,, but we don't live in a perfect world.... The Ram stands tall due to the "fin" design on the top, these fins can cause issue's if your placing a LArge AIr Cooler such as a Lucifer like I am. I had to remove the air cooler to install the ram stick into Slot B1

Other Thoughts: Gotta Luv the egg! This is a very good, well run company~!

Hi Richard

Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. Glad to hear you received the RAM very quickly and were able to get it working at full speed. Most G.Skill DDR3 modules default to a lower frequency DDR3-1333 because this allows the RAM to be usable in older platforms. To activate the performance settings of the RAM, enable XMP Profile in BIOS/EFI. By doing so, the motherboard can automatically detect and configure RAM settings. The RipJaws series heat spreader is 38mm tall, so make sure you have sufficient clearance. The total height is shorter than most, so they can clear most aftermarket CPU coolers, including larger ones. For any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsFinally! RAM that works the way its suppose to!

Pros: Went into my Bios and went to my XMP settings, and selected the correct profile. Then Bam, everything was set correctly. Now the test to see how long it'll stay alive.

Cons: Nothing i can say so far.

Other Thoughts: Can't put it in slot 1 due to my cpu cooler (evo 212) is blocking it's path. But that's only minor due to how my mobo is setup. Simply put the RAM sticks to 2 and 4 slots.

1 out of 5 eggsonly runs at 1600mhz otherwise BSOD!

Pros: works at lower clock speeds...but why would I pay more money for that?

Cons: not compatible with asrock 970 pro 3 motherboard and fx 8320 processor...its all over the web that this motherboard and processor will only handle up to 1866mhz yet the newegg memory finder found this RAM for me saying it will work. Needless to say I've spent countless wasted hours trying to load different hard drives, memory tester (which the ram tested fine). It defaults to 1600mhz in the bios and if you try to load the profile for the ram and bump it up to what its suppose to run at (2133mhz) you get a blue screen until you change it back. Not very cool..alot of wasted time/money figuring out that newegg/gskill doesnt even tell you about compatibility issues when you're checking for compatible ram for that mainboard.

Other Thoughts: I already had crucial 1600mhz ram that worked just fine, was trying to get faster ram, not more expensive ram at the same speeds!

Dear Customer

We are sorry to hear you had such issues. The RAM is compatible, but if you have certain hardware that does not allow it to reach maximum frequency, lower the frequency and it will work fine. With DOCP enabled, set the DRAM Frequency to DDR3-1866 or DDR3-1600 and the system can be perfectly stable. Additional tweaks may be necessary to fully stabilize DDR3-2133, but it requires advanced knowledge and experience. If you would like assistance with it, contact the G.Skill technical support team directly. They can provide the expertise you need and save you the headache of having to do research and figure things out. Once you are through with them, your computer will be fast and stable.

Thank you
