Works as expected 4/19/2017 9:44:39 AM

Pros: - 16GB RAM
- Looks nice

Cons: - A bit on the expensive side (when I bought them)

Overall Review: I upgraded my father's computer from 8GB (2x4GB) to these 16GB RAM sticks and what a difference them made. The computer executes faster and he can truly multitask now. He loves playing Flight Sim X and always has about 10 other programs open at the same time. Before the computer was sluggish but not anymore. He is satisfied, I'm satisfied that he is satisfied...we're all satisfied with these sticks of RAM

Here are his system specs:
- AMD FX-4100 (not OC's)
- 16GB RAM (these)
- GIGABYTE GeForce GT 740 2GB
- 1TB SATA HD

Works fine, but not at 1600 9/16/2016 7:13:17 AM

Pros: Price, appearance, value, interchangeability and function.

Cons: It is not recognized as 1600. Shows up as 1333 (by HP computers anyway) . I installed in an HP slimline, and it booted at 1333 in the BIOS. I thought it was the computer. Several months Later I swapped it to a HP desktop and it still booted at 1333. I know this computer supports 1600 because the original HP memory booted at 1600. Unfortunately, HP bios has no memory settings, except to view the memory.

Overall Review: Others don't like the appearance, but it Looks cool to me. Good price and value. Works on different computers immediately on boot up. I wish it was 1600.

Hi Clifford

Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. Glad to hear you like the special design of the Ares series memory. The ultra low profile heat spreader in orange can be a nice addition to any type of system. Unfortunately, for pre-built computers like HP, the motherboard BIOS can only recognize standard specifications. So if the CPU supports DDR-1600, you need DDR3-1600 CL11 RAM to be recognized properly. Any RAM with timings other than CL11 @ DDR3-1600 is designed for aftermarket motherboards that can be adjusted. In any case, with an additional 16GB installed, the operating system will have plenty of additional capacity to run smoothly even during high load/heavy duty situations. Should you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly.

Thank you

Great Value, Great Performance 3/23/2016 3:34:59 AM

Pros: Easy install
Good value
Great Performance
Low profile heatsink

Cons: I don't like orange, really.

Overall Review: I'd recommend these. Running them in my gaming rig next to an older 4GB stick no issues. The heatsink causes absolutely no issues with my CPU heatsink.

Works, but doesn't recognize properly 3/7/2016 2:33:46 PM

Pros: - It does its job
- It looks good in the case without being gaudy

Cons: - BIOS recognizes them as 1333, not 1600.

Hi Trey

We will be glad to help with any issues. This RAM is above standard, so you will need to configure settings manually in BIOS, or enable the XMP/DOCP Profile. Without any changes, the maximum boot up value is DDR3-1333 CL9 1.50V. This standardization allows the RAM to be compatible in most systems that can support 8GB DDR3 modules. Once a system boots up with RAM, then any performance values can be enabled if supported by the motherboard and CPU. With memory settings configured properly, the computer will be fast and smooth with 16GB of DDR3-1600. Should you need help with set up, or have any questions, please feel free to contact us directly.

Thank you
