  • Summary: I really haven't had any issues with this memory with respect to heat, speed or stability ... ( so far ). It was installed on the MSI 970-G46 motherboard along with an AMD FX-6350 processor and the stock cooler that came with it. Very quiet, no heat or stability issues, just a substantial learning curve with respect to MSI motherboard software / bios set up which you can get help with from MSI tech support if you need it.
  • Pros: Installs, is recognized and runs at 2133mhz with no heat issues
  • Cons: Had to go into MSI 970A-G46 motherboard bios and go through a substantial learning curve to get it to run at 2133mhz as bios default limits would not allow it to run at this speed.

Works perfectly

  • Pros: - Was able to use XMP to overclock to 2133 MHz straight from the BIOS
  • Cons: - If you don't know about XMP, you may be surprised the BIOS initially detects it as DDR3-1600.

  • Summary: Not a bad memory kit. 2133mhz is a nice high number, and sounds great to customers and other people. Timings on this kit aren't that great. I've never had a problem with G. Skill RAM yet though - they seem to be quite reliable.
  • Pros: 2133mhz, Price
  • Cons: Timings

Good RAM for cheap

Paula S., Newegg
6 December 2011
  • Pros: Very cheap and versatile for what I paid, $60. 8 GB set. Runs cool. The heat spreaders are actually a bit nicer than I though they would be. Normally you get these cheap thin alluminum heat spreaders, but these ones are actually a bit thicker than your standard low RAM coolers, for example, Corsair XMS. Runs good at a decent timing and very low voltage which is great on older chipsets like mine.
  • Cons: I can't get it to run at specified frequency. However, i must point out that I'm running an Nforce 790i Ultra. So these RAM modules weren't meant to run on that chipset, the fact they work at all is pretty impressive. I've had trouble running RAM above 1800 MHz on this board before so I'm not surprised by that. I can't get the timings below 10-10-10-28 even at 1800 MHz. It would be nice to hit 9-9-9 but it won't even boot at those timings at 1.5v.

  • Summary: Nothing Great Product!
  • Pros: Fast, Overclocks High, Stable, and looks sexy. :)
  • Cons: People who don't understand that with most mobo's "ones without XMP mainly" you have to MANUALLY SET YOUR SPEED.
