Pros: Use it out of the box without O/C. Works fine. Temperature during full load is within acceptable range (< 42 deg C).
Cons: Do take note that the modules need to be fully inserted into the slots as inserting them in could be tricky.
Other Thoughts: Delivery was fast (within a week) considering that the modules were from the US (and I'm from SG).

Step up from my old 1600mhz RIPJAWS to Sniper 1866Mhz memory
Pros: Great memory although little confused at the poor labeling of these vs the GAMING version of the sniper RAM. The GAMING version have a higher latency of 10-11-10-30 Whereas these have a lower latency of 9-10-9-28(lower CAS latency is better). SMH....
Cons: None so far

Great customer service from both NewEgg and G.Skill - but cannot achieve performance at 3200Mhz
Pros: Quick shipment from Newegg Quick and supportive customer support from G.Skill
Cons: Apparently this RAM is not certified for my new mobo - Gigabyte G1 Z170x Gaming 3 so I'm unable to boot at 3000Mhz without tweaking my BIOS (relaxed settings). Unfortunately this reduced my benchmark performance. Seems 2800Mhz is the sweet spot.
Other Thoughts: I'd recommend the G.Skill RAM but in hindsight I would have gone with something cheaper (2800Mhz), if I had known.
Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. Glad to hear you received the memory kit very quickly through NewEgg. As the number one e-tailer for G.Skill products, you can expect low pricing, quick shipping, sharp service, and helpful support. With regards to your issue, unfortunately the Gigabyte GA-Z170X-Gaming 3 motherboard has been tested by G.Skill to reach a maximum frequency of DDR4-2800. A BIOS update may be necessary to achieve a higher frequency, if possible. Since you purchased a higher frequency than supported, you can still maximize performance by lowering timings. It can be difficult at times to find a low latency memory kit, so a common work around is purchasing a higher frequency kit to decrease timings lower than other memory kits on the market. There are many ways to optimize a system, so although you purchased a higher frequency than supported by the motherboard, you can still configure the RAM to perform better than a cheaper DDR4-2800 memory kit. For any further questions or if you would like help with set up, please feel free to contact us directly.
Thank you GSKILL SUPPORT
