No compromise, all awesome 03/26/2013
This kit was a steal when I bought it, and with the Intel XMP profile it is very well rounded. Frequencies over 1600mhz are rarely meaningful, the latencies are very low for DDR3, and a lot of people appreciate the lower voltages, plus the blue heat spreaders are a nice touch.
Not to sound like a spokesman for G.Skill, but I can't think of anything really wrong with this kit. They've gone from an old AMD build to my current X79 board over the last 11 months, and not a single problem along the way.
I still had a phenom ii x4 when I bought these and was saving for the 3930k I have now, and it's nice to see them run at the timings they're meant to with XMP. I've got a fairly high-end gaming along side thes ARES sticks (670 SLI, now a GTX Titan), and even though they're only 1600mhz instead of the 2ghz+ that reviewers use, I'm still right up there in performance numbers with the benchmarks they post. Heat spreaders don't usually do any good on RAM, but the blue metal on these is just gorgeous. I'm glad I went with these.
