5 out of 5 eggsThe real dominator!

Pros: - No dead sticks
- Runs as advertised
- matches my MSi Z87M red perfectly
- has a nice shine to them and not a flat red
- Runs cool

Cons: - Maybe the packaging could be better, but that is REALLY digging to find a complaint. This has nothing to do with the quality of the product as so much as it has to do with shipping and quality control recommendations for G.SKILL to make an overall better "out of the box" appearance of the product.

Other Thoughts: This stuff is the real dominator. Corsair is just the over priced mercedez in the car world. I made the switch from Corsair to G.SKILL years ago and I haven't looked back since. Matter of fact, I was shopping at a local competitor for this PC build and they didn't sell G.SKILL memory. The sales associate told me that G.SKILL wasn't as good as Corsair and was only a Newegg exclusive memory with lower standards which is why they do not carry them.

Because I believe in G.SKILL so highly, newegg earned my business. I would highly recommend ANYBODY looking to build a system to consider G.SKILL. Excellent technical support as well!

Thanks G.SKILL.

5 out of 5 eggswork great

Pros: stays a reasonable temp without needing direct cooling even when tuned for my liking

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: i bought them when they were new on the market and paid a lot and thats why i only got 16gb

i now seeing the price has went down dramatically i would not hesitate to buy 32gb of these. 32gb would be better than 16gb for my RAMdisk storage

5 out of 5 eggsNumero uno

Pros: Flawless, fast, RAM.

Cons: Don't know if fast ram makes a difference with Haswell. It IS important is you buy an AMD system.

Other Thoughts: If i could do it again i would buy 32 GB of those to use as a RAMdrive. I know of no software that need more than 8GB, and 16GB is not enough to cache big games into RAM. 16GB is like the worst number out there.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Heat Spreader, Quad Channel, Work Great for Gaming

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: These work great, not sure why other reviews were bad, maybe they didn't know what they were doing but they installed easily (like most RAM do) and I have had no issues.

5 out of 5 eggsRuns great

Pros: Installed these with my intel i3570, ASUS Sabertooth MB and Dual GTX 680 in SLI. Latency is low and memory is suffiecient for any activity I have thrown at my system.

Cons: Case on RAM is a little large, leaves little room if motherboard design is tight.

Other Thoughts: The red case may be an issue for smaller boards or those with liquid cooling. Was able to work around mine but it was a very tight fit.

5 out of 5 eggsRipjaws DDR3 SDRAM 2133

Pros: Loaded XMP Profile just fine on a X79 motherboard. I like the look of the heat sink spreaders.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Your motherboard may need the latest BIOS to take advantage of the higher speed. Mine needed it as it would boot up in endless boot loops unless the default of 1600 was selected.

3 out of 5 eggsFast but DOA again

Pros: The XMP profile kicks these in to the correct speed.
Fast for the sticks that work.

Cons: This is the second set I have bought of G.skill RAM with 1 of the 4 sticks DOA. Its either RMA one stick and wait for them to take the sweet time testing or RMA all 4 again to Newegg and wait for another 2 weeks to finish my build. Its a lose lose situation and I am tired of paying for shipping on defective products.

Other Thoughts: A lot of people like G.Skill but I just do not seem to have luck with them. Two different computers with 2 different sets of ram and 1 DOA module in each. Will go with Corsair vengance from local dealer next time so I can get my computer running in a timely manner. The ones that do work are blazing fast.
