Lucky if it works well. 11/05/2011
Low voltages! Excellent overclock - 1800mhz with no adjustment to timings (on 2 sticks--see cons). And fast! High quality, nicely designed heatsinks. I haven't adjusted the timings; the XMP profile was of great benefit to performance but see below...
Got two sets. 4 out of the 6 sticks were problematic. One would cause a boot failure if clocked at 1600 or above. The other 3 had between 1 and 72 errors in Memtest in the overclock. Very inconsistent and I'm not sure if that's to be expected on a very high quality piece of Ram but in general there is always variation.
Still, I expect 0 errors for the price and quality. There marketed for overclocking. The 2 that worked were excellent though, but I question the QA of G-Skill...I bought these based on positive reviews and company reputation. I've filled out an RMA and hope their customer service is good. In the meantime, I have some slower Corsair XMS3 1600mhz sticks I'll be using.
We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. It is very odd multiple modules had issues. Please send them in directly to us for RMA, and replacements should work much better. If you have issues, feel free to contact our technical support department directly and they will make sure the memory operates stable at the rated specifications. You are correct in that the modules should have 0 errors. Even 1 error is a defect to us because G.Skill memory modules should be perfect. This is a high performance kit, so your satisfaction is guaranteed.
Quality and customer service are our top priorities.
