Great G.Skill support after failed 8GB chip3/16/2018 5:26:14 AM

Pros: Works fine on a Z370 Board (ASUS Z370-Plus-Gaming) with Intel Core i7-8700, even if it's not on the QVL list (I was aware of that before purchasing) By default, it is detected as 2133Mhz memory, but I can easily make it run a 2933Mhz by tweaking the XML profile. However, I am not certain if it also has an impact on the processor's heat generation, so I am leaving it at 2133MHz for now until I can make further research on that subject (I am not really noticing any performance change either way).

Cons: - Had one chip fail very soon (maybe a month or two) after installation. Bit of a grief during the period I got BSODs all the time till I finally found out it was because of the said chip.

Overall Review: G.Skill's RMA process turned out to be rather smooth, other than the nuisance of having to pay shipping fees from Canada to US. It took maybe 2 and a half weeks, which is pretty good in my book. I will point out my computer's performance was flawless during the whole period I ran it with a single 8GB chip, and every day performance, including gaming, was the same as ever. Maybe going for 2 x 8GB was a bit overkill for today's needs ;)

. Hi Francois Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. Good to hear the memory kit worked great with your ASUS Z370 motherboard and Intel Core i7-8700 CPU. That is a very high performance build so results should be outstanding. Enabling XMP and running at a higher DRAM frequency will generate slightly more CPU heat as the memory controller is embedded within the CPU. You can monitor temps or use a software like RealTemp to see if it exceeds 80 degrees C during gaming or any memory intensive task. If so, you may need an aftermarket CPU cooler to maintain CPU temperature. Good to hear you were able to get an issue resolved very swiftly. Should you have any other questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly. Thank you for choosing G.SKILL Quality and customer service are our top priorities.

Pros: - Super silent - Sleek looking - No issues with card itself

Cons: - A little expensive because of miners .... whos to blame?

Overall Review: Really really like this little gem of a vid card. Eventually I'll upgrade to a newer model & hopefully MSI will still be manufacturing similar GPUs ;)

Excellent external drive6/26/2009 5:24:59 PM

Pros: -Small -runs cool -They're designed to be stacked one onto another (unlike the MyBooks)

Cons: USB port only

Overall Review: Make sure you change the partition type if you want to format this drive for the Mac OS (pick the one that is compatible with Intel processors if you got a newer Mac) otherwise you'll get a formatting error when you try to do a Journaled format.
