I am a network engineer and amazed at how many buy non matching parts here. This ram works excellent with boards listed on the GSkill QVL motherboard list. I have a Maximus V Formula and it runs at 1.5 volts on XMP with zero issues. Most of of these posts are from AS Rock board users. The ram is perfect for my CMV6GT cooler which is huge and conflcits with tall ram
none the ARES is a perfect match for the ASUS Maximus V Formula and will give low latency cas 9 without overclocking the CPU. If I decide to benchmark and OC I will go with GSkill 2X4 ram. But for every day this stuff is perfect and gives me 16gb
Most issues listed here are bios related. Always update your board to the latest BIOS. I have 7.8 on my 3770K and ram. The rest is 7.9. I am using a HAFX, with CM1100 PSU, 2 580 Ultras, Crucial M4 512gb, Seagate 2 TB for steam, and WD 2TB for storing customer subscriptions etc. This combined with a Steel series keyboard and G9X makes for 195 fps in BF3 in auto with vsync off.
