4 out of 5 eggsshell shocker item

Pros: good and reliable, buy it as $60, good for my AMD FX 6300

Cons: there is another G'skill memory 2*4GB 2133HZ which is $65, if someone want better overlock performance, go and get it

4 out of 5 eggsStable. Loves 1.6v

Pros: Height. Appearance. Performance when increasing voltage. Stable at stock speed. Good value for enthusiast on a budget.

Cons: A little slow at stock speed for enthusiast activity but rock solid stability.

Other Thoughts: This ram seems to like being tweaked to 1.6v and it kind of takes off performance wise... like a jet plane. Stock is like value ram performance but not as good as a Crucial Value ram. Actually, not even close... However, minor tweaking this ram over other value based ram reaps amazing results. I noticed that a high quality power supply and motherboard bios chip make this ram shine.

Dear Customer

Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. Glad to hear you like the low profile heat spreader deisgn of the Ares series. They will especially come in handy when overclocking the RAM and pushing beyond the rated specifications as you are experimenting. Raising the DRAM Voltage can significantly improve performance, but at the same time heat can be increased, so the heat spreaders are perfect for this purpose. This memory kit is sufficient for gaming and much more enthusiast activity. For any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsGreat RAM. Period.

Pros: I picked up one of these kits as a part of a customers gaming/HTPC upgrade.

I use G.Skill memory in a lot of my builds, and it always performs wonderfully, I have trusted the G.Skill name for many years. Not only does this kit have the performance to meet the customers demands, but it fit the blue aesthetic they were looking for.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This kit was used in an AMD FX-8350 powered build running a Radeon R9 270X as part of a gaming HTPC rebuild. It's working perfectly and the customer is very pleased with it's performance. Chalk up another win for G.Skill, another satisfied customer.

3 out of 5 eggsMixed Results

Pros: First set worked as expected and the price is decent. Not much you can say about ram; it either works or it doesn't.

Cons: Second set was defective and caused bsods.

Other Thoughts: Bought a second set of this memory after over a year of only using two sticks of it. Unfortunately the product was defective and memtest confirmed this. Probably just an unlucky batch since the first has worked fine for over a year. Awaiting RMA action for now.

Dear Customer

We will be glad to help with this issue. Once you receive the new kit, remove the original RAM and install the new kit. Manually input the settings in BIOS, or enable the XMP/DOCP Profile. Check to see if that works fine. If so, install the original memory kit to see if they can work together. It is not guaranteed the two kits can work in a single computer, but you can certainly try. If you continue to have issues, contact the G.Skill support team directly at that point and they will be glad to help and get 16GB working smoothly in your computer.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product, Very Aesthetically Pleasing

Pros: Beautiful RAM, Great Price, Great Performance

Also, the image looks like the RAM heat sink is plastic, or has a matt finish. It actually has a metallic blue finish very similar to the blue ripsaws x color/finish.

Cons: None...

5 out of 5 eggsStable, Reliable RAM

Pros: Using 16gb (4 x 4gb) of these in my current build and it has been rock solid at stock timings. Could not ask for more.

Cons: nada

Other Thoughts: These are used in conjunction with:

- MSI Z77A LGA 1155 ATX Motherboard
- Intel i7 2600k Sand bridge Processor
- Other non-important-to-know components.

5 out of 5 eggsA company that really honors their lifetime warranties, and exceeds their published timings

Pros: G. Skill claims to put a life-time warranty on their memory products, but the truth of that claim can only come to light when the memory fails, and you try to exercise that warranty. I've purchased several sticks of G. Skill memory through the years, but I finally had one stick go bad after 3 years of use (purchased the memory in 2011). I submitted the RMA on line, describing how I determined the memory failure, and G. Skill responded within 48 hours, approving the RMA. I sent the defective memory kit (both sticks of the dual-channel kit), and G. Skill promptly sent a brand new replacement kit that I verified error free using Memtest86+ (running for 24 hours).

Regarding this particular dual-channel memory kit: though the G. Skill website publishes the timings at 9-9-9-24-2N, the actually XMP data on the pair of memory sticks that I received revealed timings of: 8-8-8-24-1N. Ran Memtest86+ for 24 hours at the higher timings without error. Apparently, G. Skill publishes timings that serve as a lower boundary, and the actually memory may very well exceed the published performance. It was a pleasant surprise.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I've purchased other brands of memory before, but my experience with G. Skill has been so excellent that I will likely only buy G. Skill memory from now on... assuming that they keep it up, of course. Please, keep it up, G. Skill.
