5 out of 5 eggsworks like it should

Pros: well all 4 sticks posted at 1.5v just like they should and they didnt come DOA. the low profile touch is pretty nice and the heatsinks dont look to bad either.

Cons: as far as i can tell. none what so ever. G skill has been pretty reliable for me and i have had several DDR2 and DDR3 sets and so far none have ever died on me. as a a matter of fact this PC that is about to be retired is running DDR2 1066 G Skill.

Other Thoughts: G skill is good ram and has never let me down yet. will buy more in the future if i need to!

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good...

Pros: Inexpensive, works fine in my machine at stock settings, looks well made...

Cons: Won't even let memtest+ start.

Other Thoughts: Memtest failure for this memory is more than offset by the fact that it passes windows 7 memory test, and works reliably at stock settings in my system (so I didn't dock a star). I don't have many plans for overclocking - for the time being I'm enjoying the peace and quiet of Core5 750 processor at stock :). Motherboard didn't set the 8-8-8 part of memory's specs by itself, but I don't think it should be held against the G.Skill either (I'm using it in somewhat aged Asus P7P55D Pro). And, of course, with upgrade from 8 to 16GB of RAM everything on Win7 x64 became more smooth and responsive (another reason not to bother with overclocking).

5 out of 5 eggsGreat RAM for Socket 2011

Pros: Runs @ 1600mhz 8-8-8-24 with 1.5 volts no problem. Very nice looking sticks. Low profile to fit under any cooler. Stays nice a cool.

Cons: XMP profile is aggressive. Set timing manually.

Other Thoughts: you don't need those hege heat spreaders like on many sticks of memory. These stay nice a cool all the time.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great, small size

Pros: Fast (1600 @ 8-8-8-24), all 4 sticks work, doesn't have huge ugly fins that get in the way of my large CPU cooler. XMP working great on my Mobo. Really good price. Never had an issue with G.Skill in any of my builds.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Memory

Pros: Great RAM for the price. The only thing limiting the Memory is my 3 year old motherboard (which I plan on updating soon) :) Heatsinks work great.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsFine Memory

Pros: Memory fits nicely in my old ASUS P5E3 Premium wifi@n. Runs without error at all speeds my old mb will run at.

Cons: Will not run @XMP, will not run at 8.8.8.24, 1600, won't even post in the mb. Fault lies with the MP, not the memory in my opinion. Will run 7.7.7.24 @1333.

Other Thoughts: I purchased two matched sets of this company's memory months ago and wasn't able to boot @1600, 8.8.8.24. After dialogue with company, I was advised to purchase a four stick matched set, which with this purchase I did; however, performance of the four sticks is no different from the two matched sets I already have.
Again, I believe the limitation is the MB.
