5 out of 5 eggsGood stuff

Pros: Solid memory at a decent price. No problems hitting advertised speeds, and overclocked it a bit for a short while without any issues. Went back to stock speeds for the peace of mind.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Had a difficult time getting these to fit in the A slots on my Asus Sabertooth Z97, along with 212 Evo cooler. Had to mount the fan a little high. It only hits the fan, not heatsink. Only using two sticks so I just put them in the B slots. Something to consider if using that board/cooler. Would either need lower profile memory sticks, or mount the fan on the other side (I really wanted it to push, not pull).

4 out of 5 eggsGreat! Only strange packaging issue...

Pros: I bought this same RAM previously, and added this additional 8GB. RAM functioned as expected, and gave a noticeable boost where I needed it the most.

Cons: N/A. See "Other thoughts".

Other Thoughts: I was worried when I opened the package, because the actual plastic container that the RAM came in was cut open, as if by a box cutter. I took pictures in case anything came of it, installed the memory, and had no problems as of yet.

Very weird that my packaging would have this huge gash in it though. I didn't even have to cut it open myself...

Dear Customer

Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. Glad to hear the memory is working well in your system, and provided a nice boost. This is a very high performance memory kit, so with 16GB installed, your computer should be very fast and reliable. It is strange that the packaging was not perfect, but don't worry, as long as the RAM is not physically damaged it should work flawlessly. If not, you are still backed by a NewEgg 30 day return/exchange policy and the G.Skill lifetime warranty. You will have good working RAM for life. For any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsHigh class!!!

Pros: Tight timings with highest practical speed. XMP profile loaded with zero problems or discrepancies. G.Skill rated this memory to run at 2T, but it runs just fine at 1T. Best ever latency of 47us!!!

Cons: Price

Other Thoughts: Don't bother with AMD platform with ANY high end parts. I've been AMD hardcore fan for decades, but lately AMD platforms can't even run high end parts to specs. Forget squeezing any extra juice! Identical parts run much faster on Intel as I found out with this memory and Samsung 840 SSD. Super upset with AMD!!!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: - Works like a charm, looks great and feels somewhat solid.
- Fonctionne très bien, bon look et semble très solid dans les mains.

Cons: - none so far
- aucun

Other Thoughts: - I bought this RAM for my first custom built. it says it runs at 1866, but you need to enable XMP in your bios to get that speed, otherwise you get 1600. Not a big deal really.

- J'ai acheté cette RAM pour mon premier assemblage. La ram est vendu à 1866, mais on doit activer le XMP dans le BIOS de l'ordinateur pour avoir cette vitesse. Sinon elle roule à 1600. Très facile à faire.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Stuff

Pros: Works well in my system, hitting the specified timings, haven't had any need to OC the ram. Heat spreaders seem to work well. Good price.

Cons: None that I've noticed.

2 out of 5 eggsOne stick bad out of the box

Pros: Fast, cheap, good timing, looked good with my blue mother board.

Cons: Cheap, one of the sticks was bad out of the box.

Other Thoughts: The one stick that worked was fast...but since one was bad and these are a set I had to return both. This is the first time I've ever received a bad memory stick and the first time I've ever purchased Gskills DDR3. I expect something brand new to work out of the box. I ended up spending a little more on a brand I trust more.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer

We are sorry to hear a module was bad; that should never happen. Unfortunately, due to the nature of DRAM, random defects can happen. So if you ever experience a problem with a module, complete the RMA procedure online, send the memory to us and we can have a new kit out to you immediately. This high speed, high capacity memory kit should work extremely well with any system. Once you receive a new kit, manually input the settings for the RAM and the system should run at full speed. For any further questions or concerns, feel free to contact us directly.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: Plugged right in, auto set to 1600, went to bios and set to xmp profile 1 and it set right to 1866. Very common occurrence so no eggs knocked off. Despite what others have said this works with at advertised speeds with the fx 8350. The sticks feel sturdy, I expect them to last for years to come.

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: Came with a nice blue heatsink attached to the ram that looks good with the rest of my blue led fans

5 out of 5 eggsGood Timing

Pros: It does all the things that RAM should do and none of the things that RAM shouldn't. Also it looks pretty cool.

This ram is pretty generous with overclocking and general messing about.

Cons: This RAM isn't in stock often, so get it when you can.

Other Thoughts: Really, if you need 1866 RAM the 8-9-9-24 timing is best available.

5 out of 5 eggsGood RAM

Pros: Blue fins to match the blue theme of my build. RAM installed and worked right out of the package.

Cons: Price, but doesn't deserve an egg to be docked.

Other Thoughts: Previously had x4 2gb sticks of Kingston pc1333 and upgraded to theme x2 4gb stick of pc1866. Had to go into the BIOS to set the profile in order for ram to work at rated speed, but knew that before I even bought it due to the reviews. Not really noticing any speed increase, but that was also kind of expected. May be purchasing and another pair of these.
