Summary The G.Skill make great memory module. This module was listed compatible on MSI Z87-G43. So no worry to install on this mobo. The heatsink look great with MSI Gaming mobo. Good price for very good product.
Pros * Excellent Value * They just work * Excellent Reputation
Cons * None that I found thus far
Summary I purchased this ram due to 3 considerations. Firstly I needed RAM that I was sure would properly work with my older AMD CPU (Phenom II X4 955) and would properly detect voltage and was - ideally - tested with my specific motherboard. Secondly I wanted RAM that would be compatible with a new CPU / Motherboard from the Ivy Bridge family of processors, in case I chose that upgrade path sooner rather that later. Thirdly I wanted RAM that was reasonably priced and didn't come with huge heatsinks and fancy crap I don't need.
I was extremely pleased on all counts. A forum member recommended this RAM through experience, another found that GSkill had actually gone and tested it with my motherboard. Given the reputation for reliability and actual testing with my motherboard and given the assurances of experienced forum members that everything would properly detect, I made my purchase.
It immediately detected the proper operating voltage and has done exactly what good ram should do... it has let me forget about it.
Pros They work just fine. I've been doing a lot of gaming with integrated graphics (TF2 mostly). I also was running some demanding games later on with a good graphics card. I had no problems. These are rated to run at higher voltages without voiding the warranty. Great value considering there is a great warranty and Gskill has a good reputation for reliability. I guess they look pretty cool (but who cares really?).
Cons I couldn't get these to actually run properly at 1.5 Volts. System performance plumetted at that voltage level. This was only after I had tried to manually set the voltage to 1.5 volts. My motherboard originally automatically set the voltage at 1.6, and it always worked fine at this setting (and they are supposed to be able to run at this voltage, so it doesn't void the warranty or anything, so that's good). My motherboard is a Gigabyte GMA-UD3H (or is it UD2H?) rev 2.1, using the 880G Chipset and SB 850 (I think), in case you were wondering.
Summary Good value for basic memory. I would not trust anything which has an inferior warranty to these, given these are already inexpensive.
Summary Installed this onto my Gigabyte P55M-UD2 motherboard without any problems. I love the look of these RAM sticks compared to my old, boring black ones. Was able to price match another e-tailer and saved a couple bucks.
