1 out of 5 eggsfailing causing computer crashes, poor quality

Pros: price was nice but does not matter much if quality is poor, figured if they worked for the first week they should go for a couple years.

Cons: poor quality since they are failing 34 days after purchase, no return to newegg after 30days, very sad about this.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Michael

We will be glad to help with this issue. The specifications for this RAM is above standard, so it is necessary to configure settings in BIOS/EFI. Without the proper set up, the RAM may not work as intended and as a result it can error or corrupt over time. But don't worry, once you purchase G.Skill RAM, you never have to worry about the system memory again. We believe G.Skill quality memory can last forever, so we are confident in offering a manufacturer lifetime warranty. At any time you feel a module is not working properly or up to specifications, send them in for RMA exchange and a replacement kit will work flawlessly. Visit the G.Skill website for complete RMA procedure. The G.Skill RMA process is quick and hassle free, so your computer can be back up to full speed in no time. Should you need help with set up or have any further questions, please feel free to contact us directly.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsGood stuff

Pros: Plugged right into my Intel BOXDP55WG MOBO, no issues.

Cons: None

Did you find this review helpful? Yes No

5 out of 5 eggsLook good and work.

Pros: Nice blue color and work fine. My motherboard sees them and uses them to their potential speed. Though in all honesty, I don't do much which requires using 16GB of ram.

Cons: None that I have come across yet.

Other Thoughts: Work well for the price.

5 out of 5 eggsHappy

Pros: The Pros of this RAM to me was the price + numbers + look. The price for what you are getting that is 16gb of ram is good i seen cheaper 16 gb out there on new egg but with out the casing. You always get what you pay for and with this kit i think G.Skill hit the sweet spot. I am giving this product 5 eggs it did every thing it suppose to.

Cons: I am only getting 12 gb of the RAM not sure if i have one not pushed in socket all the way or if one of the sticks are DOA. Ether way ill figure it out my next day off if i goofed it or if its just a DOA of one of the sticks and if it is a DOA its no big deal it happens some times.

Other Thoughts: i think we need to start seeing more grip on the RAMs outter casing so we can remove and insert the RAM into are slots more easily. This is not something i would take a egg off for because most RAM i have ever had i felt the same way about might just be me and my big hands.

5 out of 5 eggsQuick Upgrade

Pros: Easy Installation, Decent Price, Did not have to change any timing or voltage settings from my previous ram. Maxed out my system to 16GB.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I Bought this kit max out my ASUS M4A79T Deluxe AM3 motherboard, and to replace a G.Skil 2 x 2gb (F3-12800CL9D-4GBNQ) kit that i bought back in 2010.

5 out of 5 eggsNo compromise, all awesome

Pros: This kit was a steal when I bought it, and with the Intel XMP profile it is very well rounded. Frequencies over 1600mhz are rarely meaningful, the latencies are very low for DDR3, and a lot of people appreciate the lower voltages, plus the blue heat spreaders are a nice touch.

Cons: Not to sound like a spokesman for G.Skill, but I can't think of anything really wrong with this kit. They've gone from an old AMD build to my current X79 board over the last 11 months, and not a single problem along the way.

Other Thoughts: I still had a phenom ii x4 when I bought these and was saving for the 3930k I have now, and it's nice to see them run at the timings they're meant to with XMP. I've got a fairly high-end gaming along side thes ARES sticks (670 SLI, now a GTX Titan), and even though they're only 1600mhz instead of the 2ghz+ that reviewers use, I'm still right up there in performance numbers with the benchmarks they post. Heat spreaders don't usually do any good on RAM, but the blue metal on these is just gorgeous. I'm glad I went with these.
