5 out of 5 eggsMemory works just great

Pros: First G.Skill product and am very satisfied. Memory works great out of the box. Like the low profile so its easy to work around in the case. Best price around for 8 gb.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Mounted on Asus A88XM-E motherboard with AMD Athlon II x4 740 processor. Nice and fast for normal use PC, very quiet.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat price and speed

Pros: RAM is RAM, right? Pretty much. I did appreciate this kits XMP option to "overclock" my memory kit back up to 1600 from the 1333 speed my Intel G3258 allows.

Cons: N/A

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works, and was easy to set up speed in the BIOS. Not much else to say about RAM other than it looks nice and fits the color scheme of my motherboard.

Cons: None as of yet.

Other Thoughts: Used this to upgrade my AMD machine (CPU: Phenom II x4 955, Motherboard: ASUS 785G). Couldn't find reviews regarding compatibility with a similar setup, so I took a chance and bought these on sale. Work fine, and despite getting two sets, one would still be more than enough.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as advertised

Pros: G.Skill typically puts out high quality RAM and this stuff is no exception. This is my second set of Ares series DDR3 and I have no complaints. This particular set I put into a budget build for my sister.

1. Stable.
2. Nice to look at heat spreaders.
3. Survived 48 hour Prime95 Blend stress test with Unigine Heaven 4.0 also running at the same time.
4. Survived three full passes of MemTest86+

Pre-loaded XMP profile worked perfectly and at the stated speed, voltage and timings.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: System I built for my sister:

AMD A10-7850K CPU
AsRock A88X Extreme 6+ mobo
G.Skill Ares DDR3-1600, 2 x 4GB sticks, using XMP profile
Seagate SSHD 1TB 7200 RPM hard disk
Corsair AIO H55 water cooler
LG DVD/RW
EVGA 430 Watt PSU
Fractal Design Core 3300 case

5 out of 5 eggsGreat RAM for a Recreational gamer

Pros: -Stable
-I dare say fast
-Easy install
-Plug-n-Play

Cons: -None so far

Other Thoughts: I have owned this memory for over a year and haven't had a single issue. Though I don't over clock my system, I just bought 8 more gigs of Ripjaws 1600 Cas 8 on a Cyber Monday Special. They should play well together. Will update later.

1 out of 5 eggsNot happening

Pros: Cheep

Cons: Will not work with my system

Other Thoughts: This memory would not work in my system, but the following two types work just fine.

Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231314

and

Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231445

I don't know the difference between the Ares Series and the Ripjaws Series, but the Ares is going back...

Glad I picked out a few to cover my bases.
