Pros: I now have these running great! It took some fiddling with my motherboard setting to get XMP to work stably, but they are running great. I think my son had possibly changed some settings and that may have been the cause of my earlier issues.
Cons: None at all.
Other Thoughts: Too bad I can't simply update my original review. I'd prefer to bump that from 3 to 5 stars.
I got them on sale, if they go on sale again I'll be getting another 16GB for a 32GB total. Even with 16GB I can pause a game and let my son launch another one and play for a while, return to my game and all is good. Everything goes silky smooth, from the launching of the second game, to playing it, to returning to the first game. I'm hoping with 32GB I'll be able to do even more, maybe game while I have some work stuff running for those days I need to work off hours.
Pros: Runs all games extremely smooth on high on my 1200P monitor. Runs very well for the price. Would need to spend a lot more (at least as of this writing) on an AMD card to get more performance.
Cons: Was hoping for more, but that may be my fault.
Other Thoughts: I can't get some games to run smooth on ultra settings. This is the only non-high end part in my system because I thought it could carry the weight of running on ultra at 1200P. I was wrong. Some games work on ultra, but not as many as I hoped would, including Titanfall. But it does run great on high settings.
I probably had my expectations too high. I thought with a Maximus VI board, 16GB of high end G.Skill memory, an I7 4770, and an Intel SSD I would be able to go ultra on most if not all games, but it's not quite there. Can't blame the card for that, it's my fault. Maybe with some more tweaking I'll get there.
Pros: Looks good, I like blue. Has good specs. Runs fine with the DEFAULT motherboard settings.
Cons: I can't get my Asus Maximus VI Gene motherboard to work stably with this memory using XMP settings in the BIOS. Windows becomes very unstable, and many files got corrupted. I had to refresh Windows after using XMP. I've got the latest BIOS for the board and the latest drivers, but so far no luck.
Other Thoughts: Others seems to have no trouble with this memory, so I'm hopeful I'll get things working, but I am worried I made need to reset my Windows 8.1 since a refresh didn't do it. If I can't get the XMP settings to work then I overpaid, if I can then I'll consider this a good deal.READ FULL REVIEW
