Hi John

Glad to hear the memory worked for over 3 years. Due to the nature of DRAM, random errors can occur to cause defect to a module. But rest assured all G.Skill memory kits are protected from a natural defect. Any time a module no longer performs like new and is in the same original physical condition as it was new, we can replace the kit with new one that will work much better. Visit the G.Skill website for complete RMA procedure. For any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly.

Thank you for choosing G.SKILL

great in all respects... 4/1/2017 5:40:39 PM

Pros: easy to open packaging (which now holds my old memory cards)
very easy installation
worked instantly out of the box

Cons: cons....i suppose I think the red gashy packaging is a bit ugly, but i assume it helps with heat dissipation so who cares? :-)

Overall Review: highly recommended

Poor Performance with AMD FX8300 3/21/2017 5:29:06 PM

Pros: I have used G.SKILL in past many times and always had good results. Installed this in system I just upgraded with MSI 990fxa gaming mb and FX8300. Enabled XMP and settings and timings were detected and set to run at advertised speed of 2133 and timing in XMP profile 1. Was able to select both Profile 1 and Profile 2 and boot and run with not issues.

Cons: Really poor performance and stuttering with this memory. I tried the XMP settings, manually setting speed and timings and even turning off XMP and running at standard timings and 1600. Benchmarks were really slowed down. When using Crucial Ballistix running at 1600, my 3dMark score was 9960. When I installed the G.SKILL, the benchmark score dropped over 10% to 9020. Tried for hours to run G.SKILL at different settings and even though XMP allowed this to run at 2133 at timings in both profile1 and profile 2, the memory performed even worse than 1333 memory running at CAS 9.

Overall Review: Looking at reviews here and online, the Ripjaws X seems to do well on the Intel architecture. After looking at hundreds of other reviews, I noticed many other folks on AMD architecture experiencing stuttering, bottlenecking, and performance issues with this memory. I have gone back to the Crucial Ballistix and running and CAS 9 timings at 1600 with a slight bump in bus speed. I have another system with the FX8350 and G.SKILL memory running at 1866 and when I did the benchmarks on that system, I found out the FX8300 with Crucial Ballistix actually beats the FX8350. It appears this G.SKILL ram does not have the optimum timings for AMD or the ram just doesn't work with the AMD architecture and memory controller.

Hi Kenneth

We will be glad to help with this issue. The AMD FX8300 and FX8350 is rated for DDR3-1866. By forcing the DRAM frequency up to DDR3-2133, the memory controller may become unstable and thus hindering performance. To stabilize the system at DDR3-2133, you will need to manually increase the CPU-NB Voltage for the CPU memory controller to have more power and capability to fully support the higher frequency. Otherwise, you can lower DRAM Frequency to DDR3-1866 and it should work fine. Also, make sure to have the latest BIOS for the motherboard and that can improve compatibility. With the proper configuration, G.Skill RAM works great for AMD platforms. If you need help with set up or have any questions, please feel free to contact us directly or post a thread in the G.Skill Technical Forum (http://www.gskill.us/forum). We will make sure your computer is operating flawlessly at maximum performance.

Pros: Ok brand, starting to loose trust in Gskill. one of the sticks is not working. I found this out after 3 years of my purchase?

Cons: how many times do these RAM sticks go bad? I kept blaming my PCs other components for issues. but I ran memory diagnostics test on each ram and found one that had problem. I am going to get these repaired hopefully within warranty support.

Overall Review: will update on customer service

Dear Customer

We will be glad to help with any issues you may have. If you feel a module is not working properly, send them in for RMA exchange and a new kit should work much better (http://www.gskill.com/en/rma). Also, make sure to have the latest BIOS for the motherboard. With the RAM configured properly in a supported motherboard, the system should be fast and reliable. If BIOS is not set up properly, the memory can error and corrupt over time. For help with set up or if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us directly.

Thank you
