Pros: Individually they work great at 2400
Cons: Bought two sets for a total of 32GB but when all 4 sticks are in they will not run in XMP profile. No matter what I do they fail at 2400mhz when all 4 sticks are installed.
Other Thoughts: I have contacted Geil customer service 3 times about this issue with no reply. I will probably be requesting an RMA soon and will not be buying Geil memory any more.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 8GB ROG STRIX OC Edition
Pros: 2050mhz out of the box, no manual OC needed. Just plopped her in an clicked the OC mode in GPU Tweak software. Had to adjust the fan profile as it would jump up to upper 60s lower 70s, but now full load maxes out at 55 degrees. Can max every game thrown at it on my 2560x1080 monitor, most games I can use DSR and get it up to 2x or 3x res.
Cons: PRICEY!!! I paid $689 and now there well over $700 if you can even find one. I had to sit around for almost a week refreshing newegg lol. While the GPU Tweak software is easy to use it does lack some of the core functionality of other programs like MSI Afterbuners riva tuner integration. Having an OSD overlay with temps and usage data can be very useful, wish this had it built in.
Other Thoughts: If your upgrading from a 7 series or a mid range 9 series card this is a no brainer, I'm jumping from 780 SLI and while its not a huge jump in performance getting rid of SLI compatibility issues is worth it as less games are supporting SLI these days. If your going from a 980ti you might want to hold out for the 1080ti late 2016 early 2017.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Runs great at advertised speeds.
2400mhz as easy as clicking on the XMP profile
great looks if your in to it
Cons: Ii purchased two pairs of these and individually they run great but when using both they refuse to go in to XMP. May be a limitation of my board(msi krait z170) may be a limitation of the ram itself.
Other Thoughts: Sent Geil a message about the issue over three weeks ago and have yet to hear any reply. Hopefully I get the issue sorted but until then they're running at 2100mhz. Doesn't seam to effect bench scores though so...READ FULL REVIEW
