Named after the fierce Greek god of war, the G.SKILL Ares memory module is ready for any battles with peerless power and capability. High speed and low latency get your system up and flying through everyday computing. Complete with proven quality, reliability and stability G.SKILL is renowned for, the G.SKILL Ares Series leads you to countless victories.
Pretty Much Perfect.
This review is from: G.SKILL Ares Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-2133C10D-16GAB
Pros: Standard memory height but Low Profile sink makes for good speeds and good CPU cooler compatibility.
Cons: Had to bump the voltage on my System Agent, Digital and Angalog I/O .075 to get the system to post with these. Wondering if the memory is contributing to a pretty stubborn cap of 4.2Ghz on my 4770k, but I doubt it, running them at 1333 or 1600 doesn't help.
Other Thoughts: I've heard that 2x8GB modules are faster in dual channel than 2X4GB typically. If this is true, I have no way of knowing, but I did upgrade from this same speed and series to afford some room for RAM disks.
