Runs great, overclocks, zero issues 05/25/2011
Absolutely zero problems getting them ram to work.
I enabled the XMP and then I changed the voltage to 1.54v. I did this because I wanted to overclock the ram. I'm currently running all 12GB at 1680 MHz at CAS 9-8-8 timing. I haven't tried to tighten them anymore, but I assume I could. My i7-930 is stable at 4.02GHz, and while I had the ram overclocked higher previously the CPU was not stable. The only thing I can currently tighten is the CAS timings, which I'll play with in the future, but for now I'm happy with the ram and G.Skill is always highly recommended when it comes to being at the top of the list for ram.
With memory it usually works or it doesn't. Before you blame a memory supplier, you should move your memory around to different slots on your motherboard, ensure voltages are correct, you power supply is sufficient etc. I know memory has problems from time to time, but it seems as of late, when I read reviews I see individuals that either don't know what they are doing, or assume something is broke before they troubleshoot correctly.
Normally when you enable XMP, you should check the voltage that is assigned. For some reason the voltage is usuallly incorrect when using XMP. Set it to what the company says, or if that option is not available just above it.
