G.SKILL TridentX Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-1866C8D-16GTX

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This Ram is amazing! They overclock like crazy! After actually having the time to play with these, I have all four modules running 2133mhz with 8-10-10-24 timings @1.65v. I have clocked them stable to 2400mhz cl 9-11-10-27 @1.65v but only using 2 modules. I purchased two sets weeks apart from each other to put in my current system.
My Build: Formula V Mobo, Fx 8350 4.9ghz, 2 AMD Radeon HD 6970s, Corsair Force GT3 SSD.

Cons: I have none.

Other Thoughts: When I first purchased these, I set individual profiles to meet my needs at the time. I finally got the chance to sit down and play with these modules to get a comfortable 24/7 clock.

Pros: The ram looks great and matches the color scheme in my computer. 1866mhz CL 8-9-9-24 I'm able to play my simulators, games, and render 3d models with ease. I purchased my first set from another site. Loved them so much, came to newegg for a second set. I purchased these to replace a set of GSkill Snipers (which were amazing) at 1866mhz. The snipers fell short when it came to rendering 3d models, but were amazing at everything else.

Cons: I've only owned these for a short period and have no cons.

Other Thoughts: I have 2 sets of 2x8gb. Currently, these are clocked at 1866mhz at CL 7-9-8-22-30-1t @1.67V for my "work profile". My second profile ("gaming profile") are set a (4x8gb) 2133mhz 9-11-10-27-37-1t @1.65v. My third profile ("everyday profile") are at stock stock setting. Amazing performance and plenty of head room for over clocking. All profiles are set in my BIOS. I could not be any happier with my purchases.
Asus Formula V mobo

G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL9D-8GBSR
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This RAM is awesome. I have an Asus Formula V mobo, FX8350 processor oc at 4.9ghz, 16gb (2 sets 2x4gb)Gskill sniper 1866mhz running 9-10-9-28-1T 1.5v stable. I did have them at 8-9-8-24 2t also stable but noticed better performance at 1t. 2 AMD Radeon HD 6970 in crossfire. System maxes out everything.

Cons: Did not purchase on newegg.

Other Thoughts: I recently upgraded my system processor and ram. I purchased two sets to replace a 16bg set of AMD Radeon 2133mhz gamer series memory (which burned out after a month). I have always used Gskill with all of my other builds or upgrades and decided to try something new. I learned from this lesson, stick with what you know works well. awesome job with this RAM Gskill!!!
