5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Great price when I purchased it a year ago.
Low latency while running at 2133.
Placed it into a BIOSTAR TZ77XE4 and set it up to the listed spec. Worked great along with my overclocked 3770K

Cons: The Blue spreaders against the red BIOSTAR board isn't the best looking but no one ever really see's it anyways.

Other Thoughts: Not a con for this product but G.Skill (and others)need to lower the amount of Memory models they sell with the same specs. Very confusing and leads to a role of the dice when picking memory for a motherboard. Sniper, Ripjaws X, Z etc... series are usually identical.

3 out of 5 eggsWrong Default Values Reported to BIOS

Pros: It works at lower clock speeds -- DDR3-1600 -- than advertised.

Cons: Motherboard BIOS reports that this is DDR3-1600 MHz memory with 11-11-11-28 timings at 1.6v, not DDR3-2133 at 1.65v with 9-11-10-28 timings as advertised.

Does not work at 2133MHz (x10.66) -- motherboard BIOS reports an "overclocking error", even though motherboard BIOS supports this speed.

Other Thoughts: I understand from others that other brands of DDR-3 2133MHz memory work in the Gigabyte 890GOA-UDH3 rev 3.1 Motherboard, just not this specific brand of RAM. This RAM does work when BIOS is downclocked to DDR3-1600.

Dear Customer

We are sorry to hear you are having issues. We can surely clarify the problem you are having. Keep in mind that the best AMD CPU (FX series) at this time can only support up to DDR3-1866. For a higher frequency such as DDR3-2133, overclocking and manual configuration is required. Memory is NOT plug and play, the highest any motherboard can AUTO default to is DDR3-1600 CL11, and that's exactly what you see. This allows the memory to boot in any DDR3 computer, but for the performance settings, you must enable DOCP or manually input DRAM settings. In addition, you will need to raise the CPU-NB Voltage to stabilize the CPU memory controller. Most AMD CPUs can not support DDR3-2133, so keep in mind that you will need an FX series CPU achieve the memory's rated specifications. Please visit the Official G.Skill forum or contact us directly for assistance. You can confirm the above information by asking others with other brand memory how they were able to achieve DDR3-2133. It surely is not plug and play.

Thank you

3 out of 5 eggsNot for P8Z77

Pros: looks good on paper. Memory actually is fine but not for this mobo.

Cons: Does not work with P8Z77. See the other feedback. Wish I had looked earlier. Yes, I tried everything on it. Asus needs to take this off their list.
I got it to work on another machine with different mobo with no problems.

Dear Customer

We are sorry to hear you had issues. The memory is fully tested with that motherboard, so it is strange you are having problems. Please make sure you have the latest BIOS for the motherboard. Also, a high performance CPU such as a K series is necessary to operate full slots of DDR3-2133. This is a high performance memory kit that will perform extremely well. Should you have further questions or issues, please don't hesitate to contact the G.Skill technical support team. They will make sure the memory is working fast and stable in your computer.

Thank you

4 out of 5 eggsNice memory but issues

Pros: The memory is very nice, went right in the blue looked awsome on my P8Z77 Asus board

Cons: It shows to be Z77 compatible, I could not get it to post my memok! Function could not fix issue. Constant red light & and memory compatibility error beeps. The packaging says for 2nd generation so may not work with my ivy bridge 3570 I-5

Dear Customer

Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. We are sorry to hear you are having issues. Please test one module at a time to see if either module can boot alone. It is unlikely that both are completely dead, so if they both do not POST, you may have a defective motherboard. Also, double check installation to make sure everything is installed correctly. With the ASUS P8Z77 motherboard and this memory, you should be able to achieve extreme results. There is absolutely no compatibility issue, so a piece of hardware appears to be bad causing a problem. Once you get it replaced, the system should work properly. Should you have any questions or need assistance, please feel free to contact us directly.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsgreat stuff

Pros: Dropped into a Gigabyte Z77 UD5 board. Set the timings in the bios and instant 2133.

While overclocking, it also scales well.

A bonus if using the UD5 is that the heat shields match out exactly with gigabyte's, making for a sweet looking MB.

Cons: None at all, all sticks worked in my ds setup.

Other Thoughts: I have all ways been a gskill competitors fanboy, I am glad I took the chance and changed, this ram is very much the good stuff for oc'ing.

Pros: Great ram, good color, look neat in my case.

Cons: Timings were not set default for my Z68 SLI.

Other Thoughts: Had to manually set my timings in BIOS. Running great.
