Pros: Heat sinks, low-latency tight timings; about the best you can get for older P4-era mobos. In a dual channel arrangement with a pair of 1 GB DIMMS I already had (though those had CAS of 3 clock, not 2), but I doubt most people could really tell much difference in performance between CAS 2 and CAS 3; the bigger boost in performance comes from having a full 3.0 GB of RAM instead of just 2.0. I opted for these since 32-bit operating systems like Windows XP Pro that I'm running couldn't use 4.0 GB or RAM anyway with other system devices needing some of that addressable space. I'm happy with them so far, but haven't put it through any "serious" evaluation.
Cons: None so far!
Overall Review: With the heatsinks on these DIMMs, the gap between each of these and the other DIMMs I have, also with heatsinks, there is very little space between the two DIMMS in each pair (dual channel, 1x1GB + 1x512 MB in each channel), so I wonder if the heatsinks actually improve cooling or not.
Pros: Gskill since day one has offered solid performance and a reasonable price. These sticks have seen service in highly oc'd dothans, dual socket A's, three different P4s ranging from northwood b's to later prescots. Each and every system i put these in likes them. Every stick ive used has exceeded advertised specs in timings and fsb rating. Only had 2 stick faliures out of 30 or so sticks installed and one was killed by an honest mistake by a friend and the other simply failed after running 2 years in a overclocked system (dothan 1.7 @ 2.9ghz)
Cons: Would like to see Gskill offer more variety and higher end performance timings.
Overall Review: What was once a gamble a few years ago is now and obvious bang for buck choice for ram. Thanks Gskill team for years of solid performance
Pros: Cool looking heatspeaders on them. Looks GREAT in my Raidmax Scorpio Case. System Boots really fast. Good OC ability on my ECS nForce4 mb.
Cons: 1st pair i was sent one of the Dimms was DOA..sceond pair solid as a rock.
Overall Review: I got the RAM OCd at 240mhz @ 2.5-3-3-6 T1 w/ 10multi with AMD 64 3200+ 2.0ghz at 2.4ghz. Would have gone with 2gb set but Couldnt afford so this works like a charm for the budget OCers
Comments: I was rather nervous installing this RAM, because it was not on the 'approved' list for my A8N-SLI Premium motherboard. But it went in fine, and has performed quite reliably at 400Mhz.
I had to manually fix the timings... my motherboard detected it as 2.5 3 3 8, and I adjusted that to 2 3 3 8, the timings advertised by G.SKILL.
Pros: Cheap, Good overclocker with low latencies. Bought this for a system running a Prescott P4/865PE at 224FSB. Perfectly stable at 2.5-3-3-6/224MHz(DDR448). Was stable at 2.0-3-3-6 up to about 215-218FSB. I'm sure it could do 500 easily, I only needed 448 out of it.
Cons: none for me.
Pros: Great Price great ram
Cons: Probly not the best model for ocing
Overall Review: Well i didnt buy these to oc but dont get me wrong they probly do but im not this time ill be buying another set soon they run well on the board i put them on but price vs performance grab these good brand good price
Comments: Forget any other "value" ram. This stuff rocks. Only been running it about an hour or so and tested it with loose timings, 2.5-4-4-8 1T at 250 FSB. No problem. Had errors in memtest86 on test 5 but just rigged a 80mm fan to blow across it and no more errors. If you want "cheap" overclocking dual channel ram, buy it!!
Pros: Fast. Reliable. Easy. Popped em in my motherboard was up and running in minutes without a hitch. Runs at advertised speed and timings ... which is fast btw! A vast improvement over the 512mb of 333mhz I was running previously. I trust G.Skill and they have not let me down here either. Totally satisfied. I give this RAM and A+.
