5 out of 5 eggsWorks fine

Pros: Fast memory. Was detected right away on my system without going into BIOS as 11-11-12-28 timings. Enabled XMP in BIOS and rebooted and was detected as 9-9-9-24 timings.
This was only my second build. My last build was a AM2+ in 2008 and it also has G.Skill memory in it and is still working.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: AMD A4-7300
Gigabyte GA-F2A78M-D3H
Cooler Master G550M Power Supply
Cooler Master N200 Case

1 out of 5 eggsJust didn't work

Pros: low profile

Cons: I bought two sets and they just didn't work at all. I've been using two sticks of G-SKill Ripjaws X F3-12800-CL9-4GBXL in the same system and never had any problems. When I added these Ares modules, the system just kept on power cycling itself. The POST beep code said there was a problem with power. It didn't matter which slots they were in or how many modules were used.

Other Thoughts: Other than the heatsink, what is the technical differences among different G-Skill memory series? Knowing that certainly would making shopping easier.

Manufacturer Response:

.
Dear Customer

We will be glad to help with any issues. Sounds like there is some sort of compatibility issue if not one module can boot properly. First, make sure you have the latest BIOS/EFI for the motherboard. Updates are commonly released to improve functionality with newer hardware. Should problem persist, contact the G.Skill support team with hardware specifications to determine potential causes. This is a high performance memory kit that should work well in most systems that can support 4GB modules.

Thank you
GSKILL SUPPORT

Quality and customer service are our top priorities.

5 out of 5 eggsThey Just Work

Pros: I replaced Ripjaws with these and they are slightly faster not by much. No Issues with a Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0
I always boot to the bios at first start with new ram to make sure all the timings and such are good.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: My Ripjaws I have had running for 3 years now at least with no issues at all. G.Skill works for me I have e-mailed them and get a quick response every time. Hey nice color too..........

5 out of 5 eggsSolid company, good looking product

Pros: fits great on my micro atx board, low profile was necessary for me.
looks real good too, decent heat sink on this ram for low cost!!

Cons: pins connected very very firmly in a somewhat nerve racking fashion...i thought i was gonna break them upon installation.

keep even pressure and PUSH!!

5 out of 5 eggsStill Awesome!

Pros: - Good Performance
- Awesome Price

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I bought and reviewed these when i originally built my desktop computer. Those original sticks are still running great, and I just bought another set to increase my total RAM to 16 GiB.

They continue to impress. If you have a motherboard compatible and are looking for good RAM, these do wonderfully. You won't be disappointed!

5 out of 5 eggsSolid RAM

Pros: -Easy setup. Plugged RAM in, switched to the XMP profile in the BIOS and it was up and running at the advertised specs.
-The blue matches the blue used on most boards, if color coordination is your thing.
-The low rise heat sinks work well without interfering with other components.

Cons: -RAM is one of those things that works or it doesn't. This worked as advertised, so no cons.

Other Thoughts: -This is a great choice if the price is right. I got it on sale for just under $30 for 8gb (2x4gb).
-I vastly prefer the low rise heat sinks to the huge ones that are becoming very common place but often interfere with CPU coolers or other components.
-Paired with an overclocked G3258 without an issue.
-Widely compatible with various motherboards, but be sure to check the list for your particular board.
