Summary No need to expand, does what it says and does it perfectly. Good product for the price,This pair of Ripjaws was the closest I could get to the 4gb kit I bought 2.5 years ago at NCIX.This pair of Ripjaws was the closest I could get to the 4gb kit I bought 2.5 years ago at NCIX.
Summary At sale price, this is currently one of the cheapest 2x2GB (4GB) kit available. I have mostly G.skills in my machines and I intentionally purchased this "design" to diffentiate it visually from the ripjawX models. Timing / speeds are identical.
The only physical difference I could notice between this and the ripjawX (other than the heatsink design)is that this has a lighter green PCB. The ripjawX has a very dark green to black pcb.
However, despite being one of the cheaper sets, the price is still considerably high compared to 2011 (when I purchased a similar set of 4X2GB kits). At it's cheapest, 8GB of DDR3 was in the $40-50 range. Today, it has more than doubled.
Regarless, I still needed at least 4GB for a media pc machine that was going to be used entirely for playing and storing video / movie files. This still did the trick for me and G.skill has not disappointed me yet.
Oh and for some reason this came with a g.skill sticker / case badge (I know it's trivial but some people may want that sticker). All the other kits that I have purchased before (at least 10 sets) never had that sticker.
4GB is absolute minimum for a Win7 Home prem 64 machine. 8GB would still be the sweet spot
Pros Great performance for the price (PM'd to ~$38)
Summary This pair of Ripjaws was the closest I could get to the 4gb kit I bought 2.5 years ago at NCIX. The timings/voltage were slightly difference but not enough to cause any issues. Popped these in last week upon arrival and am now running with a red/blue mix n' match from G.Skill. Very happy with the product as the previous near identical set has been flawless for me for the last couple years and this will extend my PC for a while yet.
