4 out of 5 eggsIt's Ram

Pros: It's memory, for a pretty standard price.
I always order 9 9 9 - 24 and 9 CAS latency.

Cons: All the manufacturers seem to be doing this now, but most ram ships at 1333mhz. You need to tweak your bios settings to get it to run at the advertised 1600mhz. My timings were off and I haven't been able to get them right, but to be honest even if it was DDR2 ram, it would be hardly a noticeable difference.

Other Thoughts: Please just tune them at the factory G. Skill

Dear Customer

Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. Glad to hear you got the RAM at a good price. This is a high performance, high capacity memory kit that should work well with your new build. With regards to the boot up value, it is standard for DDR3 so any DDR3 computer can use this RAM. Otherwise, if the boot up value is non-standard, it can pose even more problems for even more computers. If you are having issues and would like help, please don't hesitate to contact us directly. The G.Skill support team is always readily available to assist you and make sure the RAM is running fast and stable in your computer. With 8GB of DDR3-1600, the operating system can remain nice and smooth under any circumstance.

Thank you

Dear Customer

We will be glad to help with this issue. Each memory module should boot up in a system without a problem. It is not necessary to have two or more modules for boot up. Since you only have one module, send the memory in for RMA exchange to see if a replacement works better. Or if you happen to have another DDR3 module, test that to see if you are able to get the system to work. Should the problem persist, the motherboard or another piece of hardware may be defective. For further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact the G.Skill support team directly. We can help you get to the end of this tricky issue.

Thank you

4 out of 5 eggsGreat RAM, terrible shipping speed

Pros: An insane speed boost compared to my 4GB DDR2. That, along with my new AMD processor (Vishera 6 core 3.9) doesn't lag anymore, unlike my old setup which lagged constantly.

Cons: The first one shipped at a decent speed, I bought the RAM in a combo thing and it came within 2 days for 4 parts. Decent. Bought a second stick to futureproof my PC, and I still haven't gotten it after almost a week. I understand we just had 4th of July, but I don't understand how it takes more time to ship one small component compared to a box full of several components. That's why I'm taking off an egg, this shipping speed for the second one is absolutely terrible.

Other Thoughts: The RAM is great, G Skill is a well-known brand, and it's pretty darn fast. Just hope that when you buy it, Newegg doesn't take forever to ship a single stick of RAM.

Dear Customer

Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. Glad to hear the RAM provided an insane improvement to speed. This is a high capacity, high performance memory kit that will be great for the AMD Vishera CPU. It can fully unleash the processing power of the CPU. With regards to shipping, we apologize for the slow delivery. Please contact NewEgg directly to express your concerns. Should you have any questions or issues with the product, feel free to let us know and we will be glad to help.

1 out of 5 eggsNot a good choice

Pros: low cost

Cons: Bought two of these. One was dead on arrival, the other reported slower speed than advertised.

Manufacturer Response:

.
Dear Customer

Glad to hear you got the RAM at a good price. Performance RAM is designed to boot up at a standard frequency / timing, so it can be used in any DDR3 computer. The DDR3 standard is DDR3-1333 CL9 1.50V. In order to enable the performance values of the RAM, enable the XMP profile or manually input the specifications and the memory can run at full speed. DRAM is unlike any other computer hardware, it does NOT automatically boot up to the performance value. There is no "factory overclock" as with a graphics card. Any clocking and overclocking must be manually configured by the user. With a supported motherboard and capable CPU, the XMP/DOCP profile may be used to detect these values. But in any case, it is not plug and play. If you would like help with this or have any questions, please feel free to let us know. The G.Skill support team is readily available to assist you and make sure your computer is running fast and stable.

Thank you

4 out of 5 eggsWorks fine

Pros: It's ram, works just fine.

Cons: Misleading a bit since the original 8G stick from G.SKILL I ordered is actually natively reported to the BIOS as 1600, while these sticks are actually only 1333 with overclock rating of 1600.

Had a lock up one hot day with them at 1600, but they run fine at 1333 as well until I can get some better cooling, but this isn't G.SKILL's fault!

Other Thoughts: I could have sworn that I ordered the exact same RAM that I already had in my box that had slightly better CAS timings, but thats what you get for not double checking! :) Otherwise they work great, just keep a cool case!

Dear Customer

Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. Glad to hear the RAM is working fine in your system. All performance memory kits will default to a lower value such as DDR3-1333 CL9 1.50V. This allows the RAM to be compatible with older systems that may not be able to boot up at DDR3-1600. The feature does not negatively affect the RAM in any way since the SPD profile is not the actual specifications used. To enable the performance values of the RAM, the XMP Profile is used. So as long as XMP is enabled, or settings are manually configured, the RAM can run at full speed. With an additional 8GB installed in your system, your computer will be capable of anything you put to it. For any further questions or concerns, please feel free to let us know.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsGreat RAM, Easy to Install

Pros: This is great RAM. Fast and runs cool, the included heat spreaders do their job perfectly. I ordered 4 of these for a new gaming build and they all worked perfectly out of the box, no DOA.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Be sure to change your RAM timing settings in your BIOS to get the 1600 speed. Else the BIOS will only recognize them as 1333.
