Summary Bought a kit of four then I found I had enough $$ left over so I bought a second kit. Installed all 6 gigs in one shot on a new build (go big or go home?). Everything booted up, no memory issues despite buying two separate 4 gig kits. Thanks G.Skill!
Summary Don't really know what to review with this set of sticks. Just used them to replace my old OCZ sticks as they seemed to be the only thing that wasn't tip-top in my system. Running them at the stock settings on my 790FX-GD70, as well as at the default 1.35V settings. Overall, very happy with how this turned out. Pretty much just glad they weren't DOA :P
Pros low voltage nice looking heat spreader runs cool
Summary Works perfectly with the Gigabyte H55N-USB3 mini-itx board. It even runs at 1.30V which is lower than the advertised 1.35V. Using XMP profile in the BIOS and the timings were detected properly. It runs cool and has a great looking heat spreader.I will continue to buy G.Skill.
Pros Low voltage, nice timings very easy to overclock, looks nice, got it at a good price.
Cons its 1333 by stock the 1600 set will probably be better.
Summary I've hooked these up to a P7P55D-E Pro with an i5 750. Im running them at 1600Mhz 7-7-7-21 with no issues at all. Very solid build and stay cool. These easily compete with some of the highest end ram out there. I can see the 1600mhz kit would be even more worth it. Very happy with purchase.
Pros -Works perfect -minimalistic simple heat spreaders looks nice -running the RAM o 1.3V
Cons -should have bought the 1600s for a few bucks more
Summary My first time purchasing G.Skill ram from all the recommendations on the forum lead me to having a very boring, troubleless experience with this RAM. It's very stable and with 8GG installed, I've had no problems with this
Pros Low voltage, CL7, potentially cool, low power, and fast. And no overhead heatsink, so it fits under the tower cooler.
Summary First set had one bad stick, replacement set causes cold-boot errors in BIOS and memtest86+. i7 860 CPU, Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD4P motherboard. Never overclocked, tried every BIOS setting combination (Auto, manual, optimal SPD, conservative, etc) and BIOS upgrades. G.Skill tech support agrees that this second set is probably causing the cold boot errors. Many others are having these issues as well (check the G.Skill forums).
Maybe the P55 or UD4P doesn't like the 1.35V? I don't know, but they failed at 1.5V as well, so it's probably bad memory again. Thankfully, NCIX is good with the RMAs.
Summary You got four slots? max yourself out with 8 gigs of ram for $200. That should cover you for a while. Then you can save for that ssd or if you a hard core gamer, that GPU ya want. Even getting 4 gigs for $100 is pretty sweet, sure it's not top of the line but your bang for your buck is solid. This'll get you on that 64 bit os without any issues. Think about it this way. It'll cost me $100 for 2 gig of ddr dual ram for my old system,
