Summary I bought this ram for a game build with an ASUS P6X58D-E. Have not had any problems yet but I have been reading that putting this ram in all the banks, it fails I hope it doesn't I am very hesitant on buying a second set now.
Summary Matched these to an ASUS M4A79T Deluxe motherbaord on a new system build. They were certified by ASUS for this motherboard and worked, error free, right from day one. This is my first machine with 6GB in it and I am very pleased with the results of this memory. Would definately check the compatibility with your MB first.
Summary Might of just been an issue with the batch I had, however I could not get 2 sets to work as 12gb on my Gigabyte X58 motherboard. All 6 sticks passed memtest as 6gb kits, however once you combined the two the desktop would not load.
I have 3x 4gb Corsair Dominator sticks now instead and could not be happier.
Cons Causes blue screen of death (BSOD) if I want to use XMP mode. False advertising- wont run at spec unless you have it in XMP mode which crashes Cant give this a two star rating (order id is invalid)
Summary Although I had no plans to overclock this RAM, I was advised to use Asus automatic overclock feature to get the most out of my system. As sound as I did so, a few hours later, my system crashed. I checked the Asus boards and the culprit is this particular RAM. I paid over $173 for this, that's $100 more than what it's going for now. I am tempted to get rid of this ram and get another.

Pros Seems to run stable h 1600 once XMP is activated
Cons Will not run at 1600 unless in XMP mode
Summary G Skill was really my third choice of RAM but right before Christmas there wasn't any Corsair or Mushkin in stock in the same price range. Wasn't willing to wait so I held my breath and bought this kit. Like many others, I was disapointed to discover that it would not run at 1600. Tried setting it manually and still no luck. I read that someone had talked to a guy from G Skill and was advised to run it in XMP mode and that it had worked. Now that it's in XMP it does indeed run at 1600 although I have had one boot failure "Overclock has failed" (nothing is overclocked). RAM passes memtest but I still wish I had gone with Corsair or Mushkin for the peace of mind. No biggie though.
Pros - Value priced. - Slim heatsinks won't interfere with cpu coolers.
Cons - None.
Summary I purchased these for an X58 board and because the exact model was on Asus' certified list. XMP profile works perfectly, memtest zero problems. I'm extremely happy with G.SKILL and would certainly consider the brand again in the future.
Cons Only slightly overclockable No case badge included with this kit! :(
Summary This ram does its job and does it well. I have mine overclocked to 1700Mhz (850mhz) speeds and that's about all it will take and is not really responsive at all to voltage increases for overclockability. My past 2 PCs I've built I've only used G.Skill ram. It has never let me down and I can happily say it is the only RAM I will buy in the future!
looking at a new DDR3 triple-channel memory kit from G.Skill which is of course designed to work with Intel’s latest Core i7 processors. This memory is designed to work at a frequency of 1600MHz, allowing it to deliver extreme bandwidths...
