5 out of 5 eggs Breathes a little more life into a 3 year old build 11/30/2016

This review is from: G.SKILL TridentX Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model F3-2400C10D-16GTX

Pros: - A reasonably priced fast and low latency 2x8GB DDR3 kit
- Flawlessly performs as advertised with my Asus Z87-Pro 4770k build using its XMP setting
- 42.0 nsec latency in AIDA64 while running T1 stable @ 4.5Ghz cpu / 4.3Ghz cache OC

Cons: - This kit is HUGE, removing the fins can help...somewhat

Other Thoughts: I got this kit solely to increase my RAM capacity from 8 to 16GB while maintaining high performance. I feel lucky that such DDR3 kits are still available at decent prices. It replaces a 2x4GB Samsung green "wonder ram" kit I had running at 2133 9-10-10-24 T1 1.55v that fit nicely under one of the two fans of my Silver Arrow SB-E cooler. I had to remove that cooler fan to accommodate this kit, but the slight cooling penalty was worth doubling my RAM capacity, gaining bandwidth and preserving low latency. I find that for RL usage (encoding, running flight sims) the cooling loss is negligible. 5 stars for that this kit does everything I expect it to do without any hassle or nasty surprises.

Pros: - super tiny footprint
- works perfectly in my home wifi environment
- amazing value for the price

Cons:
- has a most irritating blue light that flashes nearly constantly to let you know it's busy at work

Other Thoughts: I have two aged Win 7 laptops whose built in wireless is failing. Plugged these in, installed only the driver (the included app isn't necessary), and now all is well with those laptops (no more complaints...yay). A small piece of electrical tape took care of the irritating light.

Pros: Amazing, jaw dropping image quality! Refresh is fast enough for running flight sims and non-twitch master gaming. Comes with 6' DP, DVI-D, HMDI, and VGA (what?) cables, all which are good quality. The high quality and easily adjustable stand itself is worth $100 IMO.

Cons: If you need more more that 60 hz to be satisfied, I doubt you would be even reading this; same goes for 25". DVI-D connection supports 2560x1440 but not 1920x1080; the display system will hang if a game/app forces a lower screen res using DVI-D. Not always on sale :-(

Other Thoughts: Mine arrived tax free with free 3 day shipping from NYC in perfectly working with zero dead/stuck pixels and no backlight bleed issues. Took about 10 minutes from opening the box to using on my computer. Seems other are have quality problems, but not here. Got mine on sale for $279; 0% buyers remorse at this price. Use the DP 1.2 cable, I found out the hard way that it's the best to interface use. Makes the 24" 1920x1080 panel it replaced look like a kid's toy. Driving this with a new gtx 1070, which may be a bit of overkill, but why not run everything at max settings...right?
