very happy with performance
1 week ago
Summary: I am glad I ordered these 8gb memory ram instead of others, at first it was clocked as 1600 MHz and I was like, WHAT? and then I checked in the bios, and set it at 1866 MHz manually (I think on some motherboards you have to do it that way), the windows experience index is the highest you can get which is 7.9, very happy with performance... the only con. I found was with my "be quiet!
Summary: No Configuration needed plugged right in and worked great. Make sure you handle with care and ground your self when installing try only touching the edges/sides and top to avoid static shock... Even if you don't believe it static can cause instability and other issues with computers highly recommend this item or the larger 16GB version instead of this one, Amazon also has this item for sell as well and the larger 16GB size too.
Summary: Before I write this I feel you should know that I do build my computers but I'm not too up on the intricacies of ram and usually only marginally overclock. That being said, I opted for G.Skill sniper partially because of my CPU cooler and partially because of the track record this company has. Previously (my last build was about 7 years ago) I opted for OCZ ram but they seem to have fallen off.
Summary: XMP profiles are very convenient and work very well in this memory at least. My board (Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3) doesn't show any differences in timings, just a difference in the memory multiplier (9.33 vs. 8.00) if I select "Profile 1" or "Profile 2" in the XMP setting, so I'm using profile 2 at 1866. Easy and works perfectly - tested using Memtest86+. This memory achieves 1866 MHz at 1.5 V, so it won't stress the memory controller at all.
Pros: Lots of capacity, Fairly low profile, XMP, Always works perfectly at 1866 speeds, 1.5 V w 1866, Still fairly low profile despite heatspreader
