5 out of 5 eggsGreat Ram

Pros: Everything. Works as advertized. Very fast. Easy to OC. And it was at a great price.

Cons: So Far, Nothing.

Other Thoughts: I work in a High Tech industry and I know that electronics sometimes fail for no reason. This ram works great, and if I get a year or two years out of it, it was worth it. Besides, newer, faster and better ram will be coming out that is compatible with my system.

5 out of 5 eggsReliable RAM...

Pros: the Ares series RAM is good and reliable. The low heat sinks help when you have a massive CPU cooler. i've bought so many different speeds and colors of the Ares RAM and never had a problem with any set. there is not much to say if you know what the CAS speeds compared to the MHZ mean...

Cons: none....i've owned and used all different types in my personal builds and for customers. Ares isn't meant to be overclocked nor does it like it when you mess with the CAS speeds, but if your gonna do that kinda stuff get RipJaws or the Sniper series...

Other Thoughts: i've used these kinda sticks in all kinda builds ranging from 1333 to 2133 speeds. never had an issue. they are made to run at their factory speeds and CAS ratings, so set whatever speed they are in bios and keep their factory set CAS speeds at that speed.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Memory

Pros: I bought 4 sets 8x4GB = 32GB's for a X79 Build I Just did and couldn't be happier.The actual heatsinks are a more shiny metallic deep blue that looks so much better in person then in the pictures on the selling page.
Just to beautiful to look at I cant explain it till you buy them for your self and can see what I mean.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: G.skill is my favorite brand and always will be because they never let me down ever and they know how to make quality parts.
Works perfectly like always, no problems at all and I am a happy camper.

2 out of 5 eggsDoesn't run at 1866

Pros: Works well at 1600mhz, even with timings slightly lower than advertised.

Cons: Does not run at advertised speed of 1866. Other RAM runs at that speed just fine in the same slots, so I don't think the issue is my BIOS or motherboard.

Dear Customer

We will be glad to help with this issue. The RAM is guaranteed capable of the rated specifications, so if you have issues reaching it, let us know and we can set it up. With a compatible motherboard and capable CPU, you should have no problem at all. Some CPUs may require additional tweaks to stabilize DDR3-1866, so a support representative can assist with this if necessary. This is a high speed, high capacity memory kit so we are certain you will be very pleased with performance once everything is set up properly in BIOS. For all questions and concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us directly.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsA good choice

Pros: I use G.SKILL RAM on both my AMD Dual graphics solutions. I recently bought the latest generation of APU from AMD and have chosen the G.SKILL brand based on its reliability and ease of clocking to the 1866 supported by my mainboard. I just upgraded from DDR3 1600 to DDR3 1866 .The windows 7 experience index went from 5.3 to 7.3 !! Personally , I like the little sticker that they give you as I like to show off my components to other Geeks.

Cons: No Cons here.

Other Thoughts: Some companies sell their products and I may assume they do not show much interest in the comments and or review section. I like that G.SKILL reads and reacts to consumer input and they always offer to help with any issue the user may have. Good job G.SKILL !

4 out of 5 eggsG.Skill Ares 1866 Memory

Pros: Blue color matches my motherboard
G.Skill life time warranty
overclockable
Price

Cons: Motherboard would not allow me to achieve 1866 mhz with out blue screen of death (see other thoughts)
Did not pay my mortgage

Other Thoughts: I have an FM1 Motherboard that you have to set yourself so I could never get the voltage and speed to work together, my board does support 1866 Mhz but not xmp profile. So my bad for not checking (still runs great at standard clock speed of 1600 Mhz.
I would still buy these again at $53.00 just for the G.Skill warranty.

Dear Customer

Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. Glad to hear the sleek blue heat spreaders matches well with your motherboard. The high frequency and capacity makes it a very desirable memory kit for any type of new build. Whether the system is used for gaming or video streaming, this RAM can handle it all. The low voltage allows for overclocking headroom beyond DDR3-1866. You will be very pleased with the performance once everything is set up properly. Please contact the G.Skill technical support team directly and we will be glad to help. With a capable CPU, this RAM can perform extremely well. For any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: Installed, works great. Used in a stock build, no OC. Didn't have to tweak any settings to get rated speeds.
Nice and stable, machine stays on for weeks at a time, sleeping here and there.

Cons: na

Other Thoughts: Bought more for capacity than speed, so can't comment on that. Games that ran fine before still run fine, more capacity helps for running VMs and such.

4 out of 5 eggsAdded second set with out issues

Pros: Standard profile so no interference with CPU coolers. Runs stable* see cons. Cool blue heatsinks, better than the burnt orange or fire red coolers that are used on different speeds and density's. Cost efficient ram that has a decent timing.

Cons: A voltage bump is needed to run this ram at it's full speed. It is advertised to be stable at 1.5000V but I needed to increase the voltage to 1.5750V to stabilize the ram at 1862 MHz. I would not have expected this using an Asus Sabertooth 990FX r2.0 board. The reason for the drop in frequency is because of my OC in the system.

Other Thoughts: I had originally purchased one set of these for when I did a major refresh of my PC. Knowing the trouble that can be had by using two separate sets of ram I took the chance and purchased a second set down the road to up the amount to 16 GB. Besides the need for extra voltage to become stable near 1866 there were no ill effects from adding a separate set of ram to the system.

Dear Customer

Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. Glad to hear you like the cool blue heat spreaders. By adding another two modules to run at DDR3-1866, the CPU memory controller may be slightly undervolted. Raising the DRAM Voltage can indirectly help, or you can raise the CPU-NB Voltage to target the issue. With sufficient voltages, the system will be fast and stable. 16GB will allow the operating system to remain nice and smooth under any circumstance. For any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly.

Thank you
