Works Great!*

Kyle B., Newegg
8 February 2016
  • Summary: While the ram drops in fine and runs fine using JEDEC settings, switching to XMP destabilizes my system, which should have no problem handling the speed boost. I will eventually replace this RAM with something faster (and functional) it works decently for regular use, and will be migrated to a...
  • Pros: -Works great at default speeds. -Install, boot, and play; no configuration needed. -System is stable and has plenty of headroom for applications.
  • Cons: -XMP setting induces instablility.

4GB or 6GB of RAM works but not 8GB in my laptop

Brian H., Amazon
15 December 2015
  • Summary: I bought this RAM to upgrade my 2008 Sager NP5796 (Clevo M570TU). I originally bought my laptop with 4GB of RAM which was "good" back in 2008 but I recently replaced Vista 64bit Business Edition with Windows 7 Pro.

OK, not really worth it

Paul C., Newegg
29 October 2015
  • Summary: I have replaced these with G.SKILL Ripjaw V and no issues hitting the specified 3200MHz.
  • Pros: Decent memory and very stable once the correct timings are found. SPD/XMP works very well.
  • Cons: Could not reach specified 3200MHz at CL16. 3000MHz at CL16 worked fine, however. Not worth the premium!

Won't run at rated speed.

Stuart B., Newegg
28 October 2015
  • Pros: - Color scheme looks great - Easy to install and run at base clocks
  • Cons: Won't run at 3000 MHz with the timings listed. I'm running it in an Asus Z170 Pro Gaming series board, and with XMP enabled and custom setting the timings this DIMM is listed with, I get a boot up error that "Overclock has failed, Press F1 to enter setup" whenever I attempt to enable XMP. I've tr...

XMP Not Achievable

Darin L., Newegg
20 October 2015
  • Summary: I was waiting for other parts to arrive to complete the build, so by the time I got them installed and tested, it was past the return period.
  • Pros: Comes with decorative fans. Low CAS and high frequency memory.
  • Cons: System was unstable at XMP setting. Could only achieve 15 CAS and 2400 MHz on new ASUS X-99 board (which is worse than the 2400 MHz sticks I already had).

Solid...When it works

John C., Newegg
30 August 2015
  • Pros: Solid XMP Profiles, high speeds for a solid price
  • Cons: Sometimes one of my sticks just isn't recognized when I boot into my system giving me only 12 GB of RAM but restarting a couple times usually fixes the issue. So I don't know if its a motherboard or a RAM thing, just felt that people should know it's happening. (Motherboard is Asus-X99 Pro with U...

Seems OK, but reserving judgment.

WTL, Amazon
1 March 2015
  • Summary: Got this for a friend at the same time I got 16GB for my wife. The 16GB failed in way less than a month, so I'm reserving judgment on this 8GB. Both were easy to install. Whatever you do, DO NOT THROW AWAY YOUR ORIGINAL RAM! You might need it again.

When its too good to be true, it usually is.

GenuineReviewer, Amazon
11 February 2014
  • Summary: Got this to upgrade my laptop from 4 to 8gb. While it did the job there, I started seeing pauses in laptop operation. Good quantity but not that good of quality. My original ram is much more efficient.

Loss of Proper Functionality

parky259, Amazon
6 May 2013
  • Summary: Installation was not a difficult task, and initial boot was flawless, running diagnostics showed full functionality of both boards, and my Hardware (2009 SONY VAIO PCG 61112L) recognized that it was 8 GB of Memory.
