5 out of 5 eggsStable - good performance

Pros: Stable, trouble-free memory. The “Write Review” link I clicked on to do this review was from a Nov 2013 purchase, which was the 1st of 6 sets of 8GB Ares that I have bought. Two of them are recent purchases that have yet to be installed, with one of them 1866MHz while all the others were 1600’s.
For each install I’ve done nothing more than insert them into their slots and check to see if they are running at the advertised speeds. In every case no bios adjustments have been necessary.

Good performance. I’ve used all the familiar brands and these sticks have among the highest WEI ratings. Although I take those ratings with a grain of salt I’d rather see them than not.

Compact. Although not low enough to be classified as ‘low profile’ they are relatively compact compared to most. I used 3rd party heat sync with one set that had those fins that stick out and the ARES fit right under them.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I used Asus boards in $50-$90 range for all installs (I do use other brands but more Asus than others for past year). CPU's were:

Intel Pentium G3220
AMD A10-5800K
Intel i3-4130
Intel i5-4590

5 out of 5 eggsG skill Ares 2x4

Pros: Decent Cas latency 1600mhz good warranty on them
low profile cooler which is nice if you are installing a cooler like the hyper t4 or t3 on an amd board.
Look nice. Got mine for a very good price at the time (see other thoughts)

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Ram pricing has been wonky for the last year as far as I can tell. If you already have 8 gigs, I wouldn't bother upgrading for awhile until the price comes down a bit. 8 gigs has allowed me to run tomb raider, league, world of tanks 3 tabs in google chrome and sniper elite 3 with only 60% usage. You really dont need more than 8 right now if you are gaming. When I got mine they were going for $68.

5 out of 5 eggslooks and works great

Pros: Nice low profile ram sticks with great blue color and no lame over the top designs. My motherboard detected these at 1600mhz but I had to enable XMP profile to get the right timings. Everything is working fine otherwise.

Cons: none
