5 out of 5 eggsSeems to work great

Pros: It seems to work as designed

Cons: It was a bit tricky to get this thing to run the right timings in my machine... it wanted to go to a default setting but I was finally able to get the 1600 out of it.

Not such a ding to the product, perhaps my machine.

What I looked for when I selected this product and why I bought it. Looks of course!! Blue Heatsinks look sharp. Also...
-Matches my motherboard compatibility
-Better than average CAS Latency @7
-Decent speed @1600
-Reliable Company
-Customer Reviews positive near 75% or better
-Price per Gig reasonable

Cons: None that I have experienced.

4 out of 5 eggsFast as hell

Pros: great price - fast as heck - visually appealing ?

Cons: installed memory in motherboard ASROCK H97M Anniversary but can't get it to clock up to 1600 without random crashes. Running the memory at 1333 or 1400 works without any problems at all. Yes, I enabled XMP and manually set the speed to 1600. I will have to rum memtest86 on it tonight to make sure the memory is faulty.

Other Thoughts: considering sending this memory back in exchange for faster 1866 speed memory just to make sure it works - it's the same price but slower CAS (don't really care). I just want the computer to run STABLE while play World of Tanks.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Excellent, matches the motherboard I purchased perfectly. I will be getting another set to bump up to 16 gbs shortly

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Remember to change your RAM setting in bios, both of my G-skill purchases had to be changed from 1333 to 1600. No big deal though

5 out of 5 eggsGreat RAM After a CMOS Reset

Pros: Solid and stable RAM. Runs at advertised speed at stock 1.5v which is awesome. Some of the lowest timings available for DDR3 1600 RAM. Attractive kit matched my motherboard (GA-790FXTA-UD5) color scheme. Also really cheap. Best bang for your buck if you're looking for DDR3 1600 RAM.

Cons: Too pretty and too fast. Had to take some tweaking to get it to run, but that's more to do with my motherboard and CPU initially not being cool with the new kids on the block. They are good friends now - like Phoebe and Monica. Biggest con is they went on sale 4 days after I bought the kit. But whatevs...

Other Thoughts: RAM didn't immediately play nice with my AMD motherboard (GA-790FXTA-UD5) which does not officially support DDR3 1600 unless you OC. Trouble seemed to stem from old settings stuck in CMOS. The sticks would only run when I set timings to auto. After clearing CMOS and re-setting up everything in the BIOS, and a couple of tweaks here and there, the RAM worked perfectly on my AMD system. Was worried the integrated memory controller on the Phenom II X4 980 CPU was not up to snuff, but after some coaxing the RAM is working perfectly at the stock settings listed above. So if you have issues installing these sticks into your system, try a CMOS reset to see if that helps.

5 out of 5 eggsApology

Pros: Good as it says

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Related to my previous review, I just want to apologize to G.SKILL for alleged problems that I complained to.
There is no problem at all, everything works as it is supposed to.
I was mislead with the previous RAM settings that needed no additional tweaking to be able to run at max speed.
Now, with minor adjustments, everything is perfect.
Sorry once again and thumbs up for G.SKILL!

1 out of 5 eggsNot fair

Pros: I believed it was the price

Cons: Did not get what I payed

Other Thoughts: My friend bought me this ram and brought it to me in Serbia. I have chosen it cause of it's specifications. However, when I installed it and checked it, my bios and memtest are showing that it's working on 1333Mhz instead of 1600. It has sticker with all advertised features, but that is not true. Each memory stick works on 665Mhz instead of 800. My previous ram worked at 1600Mhz, so motherboard is not a problem. Now, cause of my location, I can not turn it back to seller and that is just not right. I feel very much dissapointed.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer

We will be glad to help you with this issue. It is normal for the RAM to default at a lower speed. This allows the memory to be used in any DDR3 computer. To enable the performance values of the RAM, you must enable XMP/DOCP, or manually input settings for the RAM. Depending on CPU used, additional tweaks may be necessary, so if you need help with this, please contact the G.Skill support team directly and they will make sure the RAM is running fast and stable in your computer. This is very high performance RAM so we cre certain you will be very pleased with the result.

Thank you

Quality and customer service are our top priorities.
