5 out of 5 eggsJust Awesome

Pros: Fits my A88XPRO and the BIOS sees everything about the memory, make, model, latency, timing, color <notReally>... so good job Gskill for firmware info!

Stable like bedrock, and fast!

Cons: Nothing, nada, zip, zilch...

Other Thoughts: When I first looked at the memory in the BIOS I was somewhat confused by what was reported...
I contacted G Skill support and they have the best customer support BAR NONE! So feel safe and secure when purchasing from G Skill, the tech team will resolve any issues a customer might have.

2 out of 5 eggsRuns at stock only

Pros: Runs at stock speeds no problem.

Cons: Will not run stable at 2133 speeds whatsoever. I have tried many many different combinations bewtween timings and voltage. Used manual and auto settings and none worked.

Other Thoughts: Running a A10-7850k and a gigabyte GA-F2A88XM-D3H with the most updated bios(f6). no overclocking of any kind other than trying to get the ram to run at 2133

1 out of 5 eggsWill not run at 2133

Pros: Works out of box at default speeds no problem.

Cons: The ram straight refuses to boot out of bios after setting the speed to 2133. I have tried many settings on the timings, from auto to manually setting them all. Unless there is some magic setting it will not run at 2133.

Other Thoughts: Running a10-7850k and a Gigabyte GA-F2A88XM-D3H
many options beside timings and voltage to adjust but having to do more than that is absurd

5 out of 5 eggsBEST

Pros: They work for me last year they were cheaper but still I can remember 150$ for 2 Gig of 400 ram. So for the price this still cheap when I look back. I have Never had a bad stick of G. Skill from 800 to 1000 too 1066 I still use them on my old AMD. When they ruled the World not any more.

Cons: None except they were much cheaper last year I bought 400$ of G. Skill from 1600-to 2133. Today they would be 700$.

Other Thoughts: If you have a Good M.B. 2133 is a good deal it will default to 1600 or set to 1866 or set to 2133 you get 3 types of ram for your money. Next year DDR4 Ram will be here and the New X99 DDR 4 M.B. and the new 5th Gen. Intel 6-8 Cores that run DDR4 will be here. This is a Whole New System all NEW from the Ground UP. It will start at 2133 DDR 4 and up to 3000 Ram.

4 out of 5 eggsGood but pricey

Pros: Works great in Gigabyte Z87 board. Board detects at 1600 but no problem with manually setting to proper speed.

Cons: I picked up this 8 GB kit for $53 in Dec. 2013. I haven't seen it for less than $70 since.

Other Thoughts: Would really like to pick up another 8 GB but the price needs to come back down closer to what I paid for the first 8 GB.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer

Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. Glad to hear the memory kit is working well in your Z87 motherboard. The JEDEC DDR3 standard is DDR3-1600, so all DDR3 motherboards can only default to a maximum value of DDR3-1600. For higher frequencies, or timings lower than standard, it is necessary to enable XMP/DOCP, or manually configure settings in BIOS/EFI. Once that is done, the memory can run at the full speed it was designed for. With regards to pricing, unfortunately that is not something we control. Around the time of your purchase, DDR3 was at an unusual low, so you were lucky to get it at such a great price. Pricing is now back to normal; hopefully it can go down soon to become more affordable. For any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsGood Ram

Pros: Fast; 2133 + XMP Profiles.

Has been stable since i've used it. (NOV 2013)

Looks agrresive and goes will with a red build mobo like msi g65 for example.

Cons: My jaws hurt!

Other Thoughts: Some reviews here state that frequencies aren't right, etc. Points to follow: consult mobo compatibility and cpu compatibility chart. Enabled XMP profiles and i'm getting timimgs and speed as advertised.
