G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-2133C10D-8GXM
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Ran at 1866

Cons: In my earlier review I noted that I bought 16G of this memory(4x4G) Two of the sticks refused to run faster than 1866 regardless of what I did. I contacted the Manufacturer and was provided information to allow me to tweak voltages in an effort to get it to run at advertised speed. It refused to run above 1866. The other two sticks ran at 2133 but I had numerous crashes. I realize as a Manufacturer you are trying to do damage control when some one gives you a bad review on your product but I have been playing with computers since the TRS-80 and building them for many years and this is the first time I couldn't get memory to run at the advertised speed. Funny how all my problems went away when I changed to a higher priced brand of memory.

CORSAIR Vengeance Pro 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model CMY8GX3M2A2400C11R
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Put it in my board and it runs stable at 2400.

Cons: A bit pricey.

Other Thoughts: Never had a return with any Corsair product.That's why I was willing to pay the some what higher price.

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-2133C10D-8GXM
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Manages to run at 1866

Cons: I bought 16G of this memory to use with my new Kaveri build. Two of the sticks refused to run higher than 1866. The other two seemed to run at 2133 but when I played games I got frequent crashes. I thought it was a cooling problem and pursued additional cooling to no avail. I belatedly noticed that my board was listing this memory as 1866 rather than 2133. When I replaced the memory with another more expensive brand the new memory listed as the proper speed and the problem went away. Don't know if it was a Q.C. problem or if the memory was falsely labeled 2133 when it was only 1866 or perhaps my board just didn't like it. I managed to send two of the sticks back but got stuck with the other two because I couldn't find all the packaging. I will avoid this brand in the future.

Other Thoughts: Tried to save a buck by going with this brand and got burned. Karma
