Pros: NewEgg immediately replaced the bad memory sticks

Cons: The outer casing, the black strips on both sides of the memory stick with the G Skill logo on it fall off

Other Thoughts: I wanted to upgrade my memory to a faster speed, so, I bought 16gigs of this. Upon arrival 2 of the four sticks were bad. The outer casing strips on either side had slid out of place. The adhesive used was simply not up to par. NewEgg was very prompt in replacing the "bad" sticks (it should be noted that , even with those strips removed, they still did not work...they were simply defective). Considering how prone these strips are to slide out of place I have reconfigured my bios to run my fans, of which I have 5, to keep the internal temperature of my case an additional 15 degrees F cooler hoping this will help keep the adhesive from getting warm enough to allow the new sticks to suffer the same fate. I can not fault NewEgg's customer service though. They went ahead and sent out replacement ram before I had even shipped back the defective ones(they said I qualifiied for this service...what the criteria is to qualify I do not know), and, they sent it by Air Express so I got it in two days. So far the new sticks are ok. I did notice however that even on one of the replacement sticks they sent out, the outer stripping was loose, so, I had to correct that. I would advise staying away from this particular kind of G Skill memory, as I fear that I am going to end up sending it all back.
