Pros: They look nice and have a heat spreader for cheap...
Cons: I had a problem with this ram and my intel DG965RY board. I contacted intel tech suppoard and went through their procedures which lead to me contacting G-Skill directly. After talking to someone at G-skill they told me there were known issues with their ram and that motherboard combination.
Overall Review: They said there were problems with all their ram with model numbers ending in NQ
Pros: Price, heat spreader.
Cons: As one user already mentioned this memory is not compliant fully with motherboards using D965 chipset. It is recognized as 800 MHz memory, but makes a computer crash, don't even let Windows to be installed. when speed is reduced to 667 it works stable.
Overall Review: Would not recommend for Intel DG965SS and all MB using 965 chipset. Otherwize, in 667 mode can be used, but what is the point of building a system which can run memory as 800 but can do only 667? Try another brand which really supports 800 MHz.
Pros: Newegg is allowing me to RMA with no restock fee with purchase of different memory. This in spite of being after the 30 day refund period.
Cons: Memory basically worked but required a lot of gymnastics on my AB9-pro mobo to get working. Later versions of AB9-Pro BIOS make this easier by automatically choosing higher voltage (2.0V). However, I've been getting BSOD once in a while and finally ran some memory tests which result in repeated failures at one specific memory address. Hence the return.
Overall Review: I would have been better off making sure that I bought memory that was guaranteed to work on the AB9-Pro the first time. I'm replacing this with Corsair TWIN2X2048-6400C4 this time.
Pros: Cheap, nice heat spreader
Cons: 1 worked, 1 doesn't. Tried to change memory voltages and timings to get it to boot, no such luck. I really hate getting stuff that doesn't work out of the box. Doesn't anyone do any quality control anymore?
Pros: Works as advertised. Got the 800 MHz Speed
Cons: Had to get 3 gigs because 4 gigs would be wasted since of stupid 32-bit OS limits
Pros: Good memory at a decent price. Works as advertised and no problems
Cons: None at this time
Overall Review: I had the matched pair of G-Skill 2x1g in two slots and picked up these to top off all four slots. I'm running matched 2x1G and 2x512M in an ASUS M2N with XP-Pro and no problems. After running the board with 2x1g's I added these and the board would not clear the POST. No errors - it just hung. Cleared the CMOS and it booted up fine running at advertised speed.
It's not the fastest memory but I knew that when I bought it. No complaints.
Come with 2 extra stickers. The extra stickers are the same as can be seen in the pictures on the side of the heat spreader.
Also come with one BIG glow in the dark G-Skill sticker (about 6 " long by 4 inch wide)
Overall Review: ...
Pros: cheap dual channel!
Cons: 5-5-5-15, but thats not so bad...
Overall Review: I like to get by on cheap hardware that you just push to its limits. I can't really understand the previous review, but I think he's saying he reached 920MHZ at 2.0 (stock v is 1.8). Those are about the same results I got, but I think you can safely hit 2.1 and 930+, but I'm not sure the lifetime warranty covers that. Anyway, you get what you pay for. For a higher OC, try PC1000+ or more higher rated sticks from OCZ, Corsair etc.
