G.SKILL Value Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-8GBNT
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good performance/ price ratio

Cons: Not reliable

Other Thoughts: Installed in January. It worked until late May. Never had a problem like this before.

This memory worked correctly when installed with other memory modules. But the motherboard would not even POST with only this memory installed.

After four weeks of waiting, received a replacement from G. Skill. The lifetime warranty for memory is only through the manufacturer and has nothing to do with Newegg.

NB: Better have another machine with the same spec components nearby to test these modules if you have a problem.

1 out of 5 eggs Intel gives No Warranty Support? 08/16/2012

This review is from: Intel BOXDZ68DB LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: The DZ68DB is a full-featured motherboard with SATA RAID capability. With an i3-2105 cpu and 8GB of RAM installed it should be a fast but reasonably priced system. This system functioned beautifully for 5 months.

Cons: One morning the system failed to boot. The BIOS post would not even get to the CMOS set-up screen. Called Intel and spent 2 hours on the phone before being given an RMA so that the board could be returned for repair. Got the same board back with the same problems. Unhappy with this motherboard and with customer service. If one wasn't good, the other could make up the difference. When both are bad, I take my business elsewhere.

Other Thoughts: Have been in the computer industry for 20 years as of next month. During this time I have recommended many Intel boards to my customers. If I don't get more and better help soon, I will have to rethink my opinion of Intel's quality and their willingness to support their products. So sad to see another US company falling by the wayside.
