G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast, xmp profile available, large enough that I got 2 and have 2 empty ram slots for future upgrading, heat spreaders seem to work (no issues so far).

Cons: This could be a motherboard issue (MSI Z87 G45 gaming) but when I first plugged these in only 1 stick would be recognized in ram slot 1 or 3. Both sticks in and it wouldn't see the second. I turned on XMP profile in BIOS and rebooted and they both showed up dual channel 1600 Mhz and I haven't had any problems with them since then. Hopefully this was just a one-time issue.

Other Thoughts: I've always used Corsair high end RAM and have been very happy with their speed and lifetime. These are quite a bit less expensive and the speed is great. I can only hope they last as long! *fingers crossed*
