    Nice RAM, Bad QA

    G.SKILL apparently has bad QA. I've had two sets fail on me now. The heat spreaders stick up just a bit too much. I would likely not be able to fill all four of my slots with this RAM, as one stick doesn't look like it'd fit under the CPU ... Read more

    5 out of 5 eggs Solid & dependable RAM

    Pros: I've used G.SKILL memory on the last 4-5 builds exclusively spanning approximately 10-12 years and haven't had any issues with any G. SKILL memory modules. So based on past experience, I automatically picked up a set without looking elsewhere when I was putting together a HTPC for my brother and his wife. Needless to say, it's been running for about 24/7 for about 3 months now without any issues.

    Cons: The heatspreaders can be an issue in builds where there isn't much clearance left by the CPU cooler (e.g. dual tower coolers) but with something like an EVO 212, you'll be fine.

    Bottom Line: Recommendation: Buy as much as your board can support!

    1 out of 5 eggs Gave Sluggish Performace and Finally Totally Failed

    Pros: Was a good price

    Cons: Good price for a bad product doesn't make it worth a purchase
    Sluggish Performance
    Total Failure

    Bottom Line: Installed the memory sticks to raise my total to 24GB for video editing. PC ran sluggishly from the time I first installed these chips. They did not seem bad at the time, but it just seemed to make the PC boot and process slower. Finally had the PC reboot totally today giving a blue screen after being unable to restart. PC was restarted multiple times giving multiple BSOD errors from KERNEL exceptions, IRQL_NOT_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA, and KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED. Trying to boot to safe mode resulted in RecEnv.Exe failing to run with a memory exception. PC finally stopped booting at all after around 30 minutes of diagnosis. Removed the chips and the PC booted perfectly on 8GB of memory and runs faster than it did with the memory installed. Contacted GSkill by phone and was not able to receive much assistance, as it was even unclear that I had reached the right company. No assistance other than being told to request RMA by web was given. Processing my RMA and plan to sell this product online once I receive the replacement. Would not trust this back in my PC.

    1 out of 5 eggs A headache

    Pros: - They are blue, which matches my mobo.

    Cons: - They caused an endless boot loop.

    Manufacturer Responses:

    . Dear Customer Glad to hear the sleek blue RipJaws X series heat spreaders match well with your motherboard. It is a popular memory kit as the color is unique and eye popping when placed in any motherboard. With regards to the endless boot loop, first make sure you have the latest BIOS/EFI. This ensures you have all the latest updates in case an update is available to improve memory compatibility. Should problem persist, test one module at a time to see if a stick performs differently than the other. This can help determine whether a module is defective and causing the issue. Once the system is working properly, we are certain you can be very pleased with this memory kit. 16GB of DDR3-1600 is perfect for today's standards and needs. For any further questions or concerns, please feel free to let us know. Thank you GSKILL SUPPORT Quality and customer service are our top priorities.

    5 out of 5 eggs Great as expected

    Pros: Superior product. Heavy duty heat spreaders. Built like a tank.

    Cons: That I didn't buy more.

    Bottom Line: GSkill memory is flawless. Never bought any that I have had an issue with. Completely compatible, works right out of the box. Excellent performance.

    4 out of 5 eggs Good memory sticks!

    Pros: For pros, i have to say that it's helping me to handle my programs better that i have, without the lags and crashes. cause my old memory sticks i had was 8gb and it just couldn't handle it all at once. so it was time for me to upgrade and thankfully. this can handle it!

    Cons: For cons, i have to say that when i put the sticks in. i thought my computer would recognize the 1600 right off the bat. but it shows that i was only getting 1333? so when i look this up, it told me anything above 1333 i have to manually change the 1333 to 1600MHz myself in the BIOS. i thought Newegg would say something about that in the description right before i was going to buy. but it didn't. it wasn't biggie to change it, but it should of been there to start with so i would of known.

    Manufacturer Responses:

    . Hi Michael Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. Glad to hear this RAM is working great in your system and able to handle the high load conditions. With 16GB installed compared to your original 8GB, you now have twice the processing capability, so essentially you can operate twice as many tasks/processes as you did before until the system begins to lag. This is the perfect amount for most users today and tomorrow. With regards to DRAM Frequency, only DDR3-1600 CL11 and DDR3-1333 CL9 can be automatically detected as these are the standard boot up values for DDR3. Any RAM other than these specs will require manual settings, or enabling of the XMP/DOCP Profile. Once the BIOS is configured properly, the system can perform fast and smooth. For any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly. Thank you GSKILL SUPPORT Quality and customer service are our top priorities.

    5 out of 5 eggs Great Memory

    Pros: - Looks awesome
    - Runs as it should
    - First set came with one stick DOA but the RMA process was easy and in 4 days I had sent back and received the new set which worked perfectly! These things happen sometimes. Eggs shouldn't be taken off because of having to do an RMA. If Newegg and G.SKILL had there way they would have it work the first time every time but this can happen when dealing with electronics.

    Cons: - none

    2 out of 5 eggs Unexpected Failure

    Pros: I have trusted G.Skill memory for tablets and smartphone with excellent performance.

    Cons: Of the two sets of F3-1600C9D-16GXM SDRAM I purchased, one of the four sdram was actually just an F3-1600, I had to remove it from my motherboard and reduce my memory from 4x8- 32 GB to 2x8-16 GB to keep from having program crashes. I tried this same SDRAM in a 2x8 -16 GB setup with the same failures. I'm having to buy another 16 GB set and hope to get what I pay for this time.

    Manufacturer Responses:

At any time you feel a module is not performing to specifications, or it is generating errors, feel free to send it in for RMA exchange and a replacement should work flawlessly.
