Pros: Only running 16g at the moment and its running fast with no issues

Cons: windows home editions only support 16 gigs (i currently have 32 gigs installed and only 16 gigs are readable) while not a con of the product should be taken into consideration

Dear Customer

Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. Great to hear the memory is running fast with no issues. This is a perfect memory kit as it provides high performance and capacity at a low price. With 16GB of DDR3-1600, your computer will be capable of anything and everything you put it to without any lag or delays.

Windows 7 Home Basic can only address up to 8GB of RAM. Windows 7 Home Premium can address up to 16GB max. All other Windows 7 versions, and Windows 8, can support 64GB+

Thank you

2 out of 5 eggs1st Set Defective, 2nd Set worked fine

Pros: When I received my replacement set it worked perfectly.
Low profile heatsinks

Cons: 1st set was defective. Had to pay to ship it back to newegg.

Other Thoughts: I bought these for the low profile heat sinks because of space limitations in my machine. I've rarely had issues with GSkill but the 1st set i ordered, only 1 stick worked. I RMAd with newegg who charged me to ship it back to them.

Newegg's service is starting slack off. First they started charging you for shipping and then you have to pay for return shipping even when the item is defective.

Dear Customer

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. The defective module should be a one time mishap. Glad to hear the replacement kit works flawlessly. This is a high performance memory kit; make sure to configure settings in BIOS/EFI, and the system will be very fast and reliable. With 16GB, your computer will be capable of anything you put it to. For any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly.

Thank you

1 out of 5 eggsAs some others: ! stick defective

Pros: Ill say this. To the point of faliure the sticks performed well. Never had any problems with it untill recently

Cons: Failure, Not even after 1 year of light gaming and nothing else the sticks failed. My PC wont boot with 1 of the two sticks inserted (and yes it is a specific stick) I will be replacing both sticks with a different brand very very shortly

Other Thoughts: Its nice the the RMA time was 1 month on the item. Hopefully the company has something a little more promising to say

5 out of 5 eggsAs advertised

Pros: Love these sticks. I have them with my "red" build and they fit right in. Specs all as advertised once I unlocked XMP in the bios.

Cons: They don't walk my dog in the mornings.

Other Thoughts: Why would you go rip series with the jagged teeth? Just adds to the potential to block cpu coolers and limits more air flow, buy these for a strong 16GB with low profile.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome memory

Pros: – Low profile, never liked crazy tall heat spreaders anyway
– Priced lower than other 1600MHz 9-9-9-24 memory
– It's been working without a hiccup for 6 months now, I expect it to last a very long time *knock on wood*
– G.Skill is the only brand memory I use ever since I switched over from overpriced C*****r memory.

Cons: None, so far so good.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Memory

Pros: + High density modules
+ Lifetime warranty
+ Low profiles heatsinks allow for use in SFF systems and under large heatsinks
+ Cheaper than many of the other 1600MHz 16GB kits

Cons: None for the moment

Other Thoughts: Bought two dual channel kits making a total of 32Gb of ram in my HP Envy H8-1534 with AMD FX 6200 (OC to 4.3Ghz) and XFX 7850 1Gb video card. I do a lot of video editing and since with the new ram my time has decreased at least 50% compared to the factory 10Gb of ram. I have not tired to over-clock the new ram. Motherboard instantly recognized all four sticks on dual channel and it has been working fast and flawlessly since install.

The only negative I have so far: Shipping was slow but delivery was made in the four day window. The product was only six hours away from my location. DHL is not very fast and had issues from the past. But this is not worth taking a egg off because it was delivered in the time frame even though standard USPS would have been there in two days instead of four days. Lastly, the envelope was ripped on the bottom (one inch). No damage to the product but it could have fallen out if the hole got bigger. I would recommend taping all of the edges.

Overall 5 egg experience, first time buyer and will do business again!
