G.SKILL TridentX Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C7D-16GTX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -- Low latency gives plenty of room to overclock
-- 1.5V (Devil's Canyon will love you for it!)
-- Red )))
-- Cheaper than 1866 Zs I've been staking out
-- I made these push 2133MHz @ 10-11-11-24 1T 1.5V

Cons: They still boot under settings they can't run on, throwing you curve balls during testing, yet not crashing the system. Don't get me wrong, I like that it doesn't crash my system, but I'd like a bit more clear signs. I still don't know what the limits are for this super awesome memory! I simply settled with what I felt good with, which also ran stable.

Other Thoughts: I still can't believe it runs this fast under 1.5V and 1T! In the latest AIDA64 Read is 31K, Write 33K, Copy 32K. Latency 51ns. It stays cool, just don't mess with the timings beyond the first 5 parameters. Make sure you have a good board & processor (Intel). AMD, take a hike, Intel rules! Yours truly, AMD fanboy ))) Love my 290X though. I still don't like Intel, yet love my i5, but having the same RAM run MUCH slower on AMD setup is SUPER LAME!!!

AMD GIFT Dirt Rally

1 out of 5 eggs This game is an insult to Dirt series 07/01/2015

This review is from: AMD GIFT Dirt Rally

Pros: 1) Free
2) OK graphics
3) Didn't pay for it

Cons: 1) Graphics are worse than Dirt 3. Super lame!!! I would be VERY upset if I paid money for this cheap knockoff of a game!
2) Difficulty setting is gone. ??? What is up with that?!
3) Completely different feel. If I wanted something different, I'd get a game from different series! GIVE US BACK the Dirt experience!!! We didn't ask for a sim, we wanted another Dirt game.
4) Unplayable on keyboard! ??? Seriously?! I play all of my games on keyboard, including Dirt series. This one seems to be made specifically for a steering wheel setup. Well, include one then!
5) It's 20GB and looks worse than 14GB Dirt 3. That is some super lazy coding!

Other Thoughts: To redeem the code, be ready to jump through some hoops, singing happy AMD chants. AMD wants your cell number nowadays. Whatever for?! Would you like my SSN as well, just to play a game?! if you don't provide a cell number (a home phone is a no go), then they freeze your account for 24 hours for "activation" (all this for ether an already existing account or a new account) WHAT?! I just want my free game!!! Once they finally let your in, then the redemption process doesn't work. For days on step six it kept giving me plain text page with no way to proceed. It only took a few days to get my free game that I can't play now. Thanks to AMD and game developers! ((( Back to Dirt 3 with my new card and now super awesome graphics all maxed out. Wish I got a game that I could actually play with my new card... Had no problems redeeming yet another code with Steam. How many codes does it take to get one game?! )))

P.S. BTW, Dirt Rally was maxed out on graphics as well, yet it looked worse than Dirt 3.

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL8D-8GBXM
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Tight timings with highest practical speed. XMP profile loaded with zero problems or discrepancies. G.Skill rated this memory to run at 2T, but it runs just fine at 1T. Best ever latency of 47us!!!

Cons: Price

Other Thoughts: Don't bother with AMD platform with ANY high end parts. I've been AMD hardcore fan for decades, but lately AMD platforms can't even run high end parts to specs. Forget squeezing any extra juice! Identical parts run much faster on Intel as I found out with this memory and Samsung 840 SSD. Super upset with AMD!!!
