G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 16GB (2 x 8G) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 2133 (PC3L 17000) Laptop Memory Model F3-2133C11D-16GRSL
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Able to run at a real 17GB+/sec rate. Able to run with low latency on slower systems

Cons: price

Other Thoughts: This is a very fast RAM. Even on systems that cannot utilize the full 2133 rate, it runs with a lower latency than other RAM. For example on the Intel NUC 2820 it is the only RAM that runs with 7-7-7 timings @ 1333. On the NUC 54250 it runs with 10-10-10 timings @ 1866.

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Laptop Memory Model F3-1866C10S-8GRSL
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fast timings at lower speeds

Cons: Not working at 1866 in a NUC

Other Thoughts: I have this RAM's sister F3-2133C11D-16GRSL which works great at 1866 in a NUC. I decided to get this one for my other NUC to save few bucks, but this one does not work reliably at 1866 in a NUC. I had to drop the speed to 1600 to make it work. It might work however at advertised speeds in other systems.

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent media computer with slight gaming capabilities 12/30/2014

This review is from: Intel NUC BOXD54250WYKH1 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics 5000 Mini / Booksize Barebone System

Pros: small footprint, good looking, 4 USB3 ports, some overclocking capabilities (see details)

Cons: no voltage adjustment controls, automatic memory settings are unstable at 2133 speeds, hardware revisions prior to -104 have SATA drive detection issues with some drives

Other Thoughts: This is an excellent NUC for those who need transcoding capabilities in their media PCs or who like a high end office PC with slight gaming support. For those who like to tinker, there is a slight "overclock" capability. You can do two things there:
1) You can buy fast RAM (such as F3-2133C11D-16GRSL) and then manually set it up to run at 1866 with the following timings: tAA: 10, tRCD: 10, tRP: 10, tRAS: 29, tCK: 1, tRRD: 5, tRC: 38, tRFC: 249, tWR: 14, tWTR: 7, tRTP: 7, tFAW: 25. This will give you over 17GB/sec bandwidth
2) You can increase the TDP from 25W short burst / 15W steady to 35W short burst / 31W steady along with an increase in max current to 42A. This will increase your 3d Mark 11 score from ~1200 to ~1700 or about 40% increase due to 50% increase in graphics capabilities. This chip (HD 5000) has 40 cores and with 15W total to be shared with the CPU it has not enough power to fully utilize those 40 cores. By raising the limit you allow those cores to run at full speed rather than be throttled, while still allowing safe temperatures (<80C) at the expense of a much louder fan.
