5 out of 5 eggsG.Skill Support

Pros: Received excellent tech support from G.Skill via telephone to determing which RAM was right for upgrading my aging motherboard.
the technician referenced my current RAM model, and came up with the right replacement in almost less time than it took to dial the phone.
Very courteous and informative, also directed me to the NewEgg web page so i could place my order.

Cons: i only wish the old memory units were still available, but it HAS been 4 years

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Runs well on my system. Noticed less latency spikes when recording game content. Game content was actually smoother than on my F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL (2x2GB).

Cons: System crashed after every restart/shutdown/hibernate. Seems to be I had same issues as others with this product. After some fiddling, system stopped crashing, but would freeze for 1.5-15 minutes during each boot process.

Other Thoughts: Will be refunding product in favor of a different set, but perhaps a higher price point. Still want 8-8-8-24 timing, which is hard to find.

5 out of 5 eggssent back

Pros: Great looking RAM, I actually never opened it. Before it arrived at my house, I did my research, noticed I got too high of a voltage for a sandy bridge processor. Called newegg, great support. Sending it back tomorrow.

Cons: Nothing I can complain about, I should have known about the voltage issue before I purchased it.

3 out of 5 eggsnot so happy

Pros: Ive had for about 4 months now, ...

Cons: Computer would keep freezing when i booted up, i changed the timings and would only freez in a great while and never a bad time so i didnt really care, until it kept happening non stop with black ops, i took the memory out one by one and put back in and figure out i have a bad one, doesnt freez anymore, but i only have 6 gig of ram and i do believe i have no way of getting a working one this late...

4 out of 5 eggsAdditionaly Info

Pros: Good, see other thoughts.

Cons: Minimal, see other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: I wanted to add some experience, but I can't edit a previous review. I have had complete success with lowering the VDDA with the latency and speed settings I included in my previous review (1600MHz 9-8-8-24-2T). Specifically, I have been stable at 1.7V VDDA, which shaves 3-4 Celsius off the temps. Just wanted to share. Also, I forgot to include setup info:

AMD Phenom II x4 965
ASUS M4A78T-E
And as I said, excellent air flow (XClio 380 Plus)

These settings include an overclocking with a HT Clock of 207 MHz (Resultant MemClk = 1660 MHz).

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer

Thank you for your added information. Reducing the memory voltage can surely shave off CPU temperature since the memory controller is embedded in the CPU. As a result, the lower the memory voltage the better, as it produces less stress/heat on the CPU (memory controller). This memory package should only need 1.60V to operate DDR3-1600. Glad to see you are slowly overclocking. If you have any questions or need assistance, please feel free to let us know.

Thank you

4 out of 5 eggsGood Memory, Needs Custom Timings

Pros: It's good memory and overclockable to 1600 MHz. Heat spreaders are adequate, but good case air management is necessary. Overall $ to performance/hassle ratio is good. See Other Thoughts

Cons: Default clock is 1333 MHz on the ASUS M4A78T-E. If you just bump up multiplier to 1600 MHz it's unstable no matter what you set for voltages, etc. The listed latency is off just a bit. See Other Thoughts...

Other Thoughts: The Latency settings that worked for me are 9-8-8-24. Bumping the CAS latency up from 8 to 9 cleared everything up. It does run at 1.9 V default after that. Haven't experimented with lowering voltage yet, but 1600 can be achieved. Please, if you have had any similar experiences with this RAM, share them.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer

Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. The default clock will be DDR3-1333 since that is the standard maximum default for all DDR3 motherboards. After installing the memory, simply configure memory settings in BIOS to the rated specifications. Since you are operating 4 modules, you may also need to raise the NB and/or HT Voltage to stabilize the memory at DDR3-1600. Once that is complete, everything should be fine. If you continue to have issues, simply contact our technical support department and they will be able to further assist you.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome deal, great heat sink, great color

Pros: RAM is a great deal! It is rated as above average (not ultimate performance) and is a great price. Blue heatsink matches my mobo and ram was received in perfect condition. Worked perfectly with the GIGABYTE GIGABYTE GA-790FXTA-UD5.

Cons: Nothing

Other Thoughts: My Rig:
GIGABYTE GA-790FXTA-UD5 AM3
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black 3.4GHz
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB DDR3 1600 (PC 12800)

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Ram

Pros: Sweet looking heat spreaders! Nice speeds, OC's are decent. Fits my System Scheme!

Cons: Heat Spreader is a bit tall almost didn't fit in my mobo with the monsoon iii. I moved th fan on the monsoon, added longer screws and made a small standoff so they would fit

Other Thoughts: I'd Buy more but my mobo has no mor meem slots :(
