5 out of 5 eggsSolid

Pros: Fast, inexpensive, reliable.

Cons: Honestly, none. My motherboard would have handled 2400, so it would have been nice if this were just a bit faster, but I knew what I was getting and I bought these because the price was right and they were fast enough.

Other Thoughts: There isn't really much to say. It works as advertised. It's fast and pretty cheap (IIRC it was a shell shocker when I bought it). It has performed, AFAIK, flawlessly. If the specs match what you're looking for and the price is right there is no reason not to buy this stuff.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat price, just a little confused

Pros: Cheap for the speed. Fantastic brand, we use G.Skill in a lot of custom builds at work.

Cons: I'm not sure if it's the RAM or not but memtest86+ keeps giving me errors.

G.Skill Ares Series 16GB (2x8GB) @2133
MSI 970 Gaming motherboard (set to 2133 with XPM profile 1 enabled)
AMD FX 6100 (IMC rated for 2k, support sites say it will support 2133)
Sapphore 7950 3GB GPU
700w single rail PSU

Other Thoughts: If anyone knows how to make my setup run at 2133 without error please comment. Currently the only stable speed I have found is 1600.

5 out of 5 eggsThis is important when considering the purchase of memory.

Pros: The most exceptional after purchase service I have experienced. Over-the-top professional help as fast as can be performed. I purchased 16 GB of Ares 1866 DDR3 RAM about 2 years ago. It worked perfectly right out of the box. There was nothing about the purchase to complain.

I recently purchased 16GB of additional like ram. After installing the new RAM, I submitted for an RMA because a problem happened at the time of this install, and it had the appearance of being a RAM problem. I mentioned that I was expanding my RAM; GSkill suggested I return all 4 sticks, 32GB so that they could send me 4 matching sticks of RAM at no additional charge.

The total return time took a week, which is very fast in my experience.

When I installed the RAM, the same problems appeared, so I called them.

They made no attempt to place the responsibility on any other equipment supplier, they simply continue to serve my problem, accepting all responsibility for the problem.

I took the advice given as the next step.

To make the process easier for myself, I placed my computer on its side.

I don't even know why, but I booted my computer for one last trial, before taking the advice that Kim at GSkill provided.

To my surprise, the computer booted and functioned perfectly. It was obviously something other than a memory problem. I found a loose connection that had an effect on my problem. Tightening it stabilized the original problem completely. My problem had nothing to do with my memory purchase.

I was embarrassed a bit, because I realized how much time and effort GSkill had provided to help me, and wanted to show my gratitude. I offered to write a long-hand testimonial and/or anything that would benefit GSkill.

Their response was more-or-less, it is not necessary; we are just happy your problem is solved. To me, that shows their character and quality of service. It also reflects on the quality of their product, because my memory worked perfect, and they still took responsibility for the problem. They were only interested in making sure their product performed as promised.

I will never purchase another brand.

Other than the statements I just mentioned, I have no reason to give such a glowing report. I am doing you a favour, because I am positive your memory purchase from GSkill is a safe and wise purchase.

I am a retired artist and have nothing to do with GSkill. I do not know anyone working at their company other than making friends with Kim, the man who helped me. Any questions you submit that are referred to me, I will respond.

Cons: None. Everything relating to my purchase of GSkill memory was perfect.

Other Thoughts: I am 72 years old. In my memory, this is only the second time I have given a glowing report. Basically I am not very trusting. But I believe myself as a fair person too.

I wrote this report as much for you the potential purchaser of GSkill products, as I did in gratitude for the service I received.

5 out of 5 eggsAs always, G Skill rocks.

Pros: Lifetime warranty. Decently priced. Solid performance. Good memory space for only two sticks. Low profile heat sinks aren't that much lower than a ripjaw's, but they are a bit shorter and slightly cleaner looking.

Cons: I had to install them myself? They don't make me coffee in the morning? Really no cons in this, or any other G Skill sticks.

Other Thoughts: I only write reviews on G Skill memory because they keep being awesome. At times I think we forget how good they are, because we come to expect it. I've used G Skill in just about every computer I've built, and every computer that I've replaced RAM in. I have never gotten a bad stick, nor seen a stick go bad. And even if a stick had gone bad, I would've been able to get a new one free of charge. Awesome stuff is awesome.

1 out of 5 eggsWell..

Pros: Arrived in safe condition in a timely manner

Cons: After installing and booting, I realize that they are only clocking at a mere 1333Mhz, after the title of this product said 2133Mhz.

Other Thoughts: Requested RMA for the correct product.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer

We can help with this issue. All high performance DDR3 modules AUTO default to a lower frequency. This allows the RAM to be used in any DDR3 computer. In order to operate at a higher speed, it is necessary to enable the XMP/DOCP profile, or manually input settings for the RAM. With a supported motherboard and CPU, you should have no problem at all. With DRAM, the highest frequency depends on the CPU and motherboard's capabilities, though the RAM can be used at any speed in between. In other words, if the CPU only supports DDR3-1600, you can set the RAM to DDR3-1600 and it should work fine. For any assistance or questions, please don't hesitate to contact us directly.

Thank you

Quality and customer service are our top priorities.

5 out of 5 eggsStable at DDR3-1866 1.5V

Pros: These run fine at 1.5V if you back them down to DDR3-1866. I bought two sets of these for a total of 32GB and am running them at 1866/10-11-10-30-2N and 1.500V.

Why you ask? Because this set can often be found for significantly cheaper than the sticks that are spec'd for 1866.

There are a couple of G.Skill moderators that give real-life answers to your questions in their forums. You have timings questions? They have answers. It's a breath of fresh air in an otherwise canned-response world.

Cons: Did not come with a free haircut.

Other Thoughts: The last 4 times I've purchased memory, it has been G.Skill branded, and I've not been disappointed yet. Ripjaw and Ares are great products.

5 out of 5 eggsFast Mem

Pros: 2133 Mgz
16 GB
It will overclock higher
Will run 5 of my most demanding games at the same time with little lag
Definitely an upgrade over my 4 Gb 1333 CL9!!

Cons: not Cl 9 but i don't notice at the price i got this for

Other Thoughts: I overclocked to 2300+ Mgz for 10 min for giggles and it seemed stable
By the time you need this much ram 2133 will seem very very slow
My mobo only supports 1866 officially i was surprised it stayed stable after a stress test

5 out of 5 eggs32 Gbs

Pros: High performance memory for a compelling price (Shell Shocker the day I bought it and sold out the same day. G-skill memory; I'm liking me some G-skill.

Cons: For what I paid, none.

Other Thoughts: Updated bios in Asrock z77 extreme 4 to 2.90 prior to install, changed dram timing setting in bios, voila. Been using G-skill memory exclusively since 2007 (checked my order history to make sure) and NEVER have had a single solitary issue. And this install was four 8 Gb modules all at once.
