Not perfect, but very good 02/11/2011
Good price for this speed and capacity.
8GB in two slots... puts a smile on my face just thinking about it
Had to increase the latency to 8-8-8-26 (just a bit higher than spec) to get stable operation @1600 in my system (Phenom X4 905e). Higher voltage did not help. It may work better with newer CPU's, though. Note: at 1333, these chips were stable at the advertised timings and voltage.
Using with the Phenom X4 905e, and an AMD 890GX chipset mini-atx motherboard built by MSI. Throw in a cable-card tuner from Ceton and you have a sweet HTPC. Going up to 8GB of RAM is icing on the cake.
Prior to buying these, I had a set 2x2GB sticks made by a different company - the heat spreaders made them so thick I could not fit them into adjacent memory slots (which is required for dual-channel operation). That's not a problem with these DIMMs - they fit with enough room in-between to allow for good air flow.
Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. You are experiencing a common issue that we can assist with. Your CPU has a DDR3-1600 memory ratio, but it is actually not the best one to use. Please refer to this guide to configure the memory properly:
With the memory configured correctly, you should be able to achieve CL7. If you have any issues or questions, feel free to contact us directly for assistance.
