Pros:

Good price for this speed and capacity.
8GB in two slots... puts a smile on my face just thinking about it

Cons:

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.

Other Thoughts:

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.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer

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.

Thank you
GSKILL SUPPORT

Quality and customer service are our top priorities.
