works fine.

Anonymous, Newegg
27 August 2013
  • Summary: it's often hard to review just one component by itself -- i find it's mostly about how well everything plays together in the build. this is part of a new build that was hassle-free with great game performance and low noise, at a reasonable price point.
  • Pros: works fine, good price. i've yet to have a problem with G-Skill RAM, through the course of several builds.
  • Cons: none so far.

Simply Amazing

NICOLAE L., Newegg
8 July 2013
  • Summary: Put 6 of these sticks into a Dell T3500 with a Xeon X5690 hex core CPU. Nothing short of amazing. Excellent for use as a virtualization server. Now I feel compelled to get 5 Sandisk Extreme II 256GB SSD's to raid together.
  • Pros: Works out of the box, no failures, fast, accurate, sharp looking, and most importantly... COMPATIBILITY: works on Dell T3500 for 1/5 the price!
  • Cons: Still more costly than should be. Should be about 1/2 this cost.

Silly ammount of memory

Gustav D., Newegg
20 June 2013
  • Summary: Make sure to enable the correct memory profile in your BIOS, I ran these with loose timings accidentally for a couple months before remembering to use the correct profile. It was very easy on my GA-Z77X-UP5 TH, literally just go into the BIOS and select the memory profile labeled "profile1" (the only choice) that has nice 9-9-9-24 timings. Otherwise I think it runs it on a looser default setting, it was never slow before, its even faster after.
  • Pros: Okay, seriously, this stuff is awesome. There is no reason to not buy a full 16gb stack when the price is this low. I've not built a new rig in several years so the new speed was unexpected.
  • Cons: I doesn't bring me breakfast in the morning... Really though, there are no cons, its memory and it works, in this case it works really well.

Great set of RAM

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: I've always had great success with G.Skill and will continue to use them unless I find a reason otherwise.
  • Pros: Running them at 9-9-9-24 2N with no problems. Heatspreaders looked a little tall but fit fine with my Noctua CPU cooler.
  • Cons: None.

  • Summary: All I can say is that this is really good RAM. It's fast and with this amount you'll be future proof (for a while). However, the first kit I received had one defective memory module. It took G.Skill 5 weeks to replace my RAM. The replacement kit I received works perfectly fine. It looks cool as well. Fancy red design without being too big in size. Also, this RAM will show up as 11-11-11-27, which is the BIOS I turned to the advertised 9-9-9-24.
  • Pros: - It's a lot of RAM for a decent price., - Cool design. Not too 'tall', - Fast.
  • Cons: - First kit had to be RMA'd., - Shows up with 11-11-11-27 timings (read summary).

It's G.Skill

Laurence S., Newegg
25 July 2012
  • Summary: I'm sticking with G.Skill. Tried 3 other brands 1 time each. 1 started corrupting files in the 4th week, 1 lasted 6 months, 1 was only DOA ram I ever got, rma set wouldn't run rated speed gave up on that brand. I've bought a lot of G.Skill and only had 1 stick of ddr2 die after 2 yrs. Given my experiences and the competitive prices, I don't see any reason to buy any other brand.
  • Pros: Plug-n-play on an Asrock Z77 Extreme 4 mb. Good price, fast. New build, started with 2 sticks at a time, ran memtest no errors. got everything set up, put all 4 sticks in and passed memtest no problem.I'll be splitting these between 2 computers, if 1 wants to upgrade to 16g I'll combine these and pick up new ram for the other.
  • Cons: none so far
