    After I RMAed the ram Gskill had it shipped back to me from California to Ohio in 4 days. The ram they sent back to me works perfectly. Thanks Gskill! I now remember why I have been a customer of yours since 2004. Your customer service is EXCELLENT! You even sent back the new ram with my son's brand new shirt I used as packing material lol

    G.Skill Commitment: 100% error-free memory

    5 out of 5 eggs
    This was my first purchase of G.Skill memory. For years, I have purchased the Corsair brand, which has been reliable and Corsair has always been very responsive if there was ever any product issue or complaint. I decided with my new build (Gigabyte motherboard, i7-3550K CPU) to try 16GB of G.Skill memory because of the lower latency (9 vs. 10) and the ratings on Newegg (most popular memory in the 16GB DDR3 class). I was disappointed after I completed the build and ran Memtest86+ ver 4.20: I was getting memory errors on every completed pass, and I was not able to isolate the problem to a single module (testing individually). In other words, inconsistent results. There is a G.Skill email address listed on the Newegg product page, so I sent a note asking if a few errors were OK. I also sent a note to Newegg reporting the issue. G.Skill responded within 24 hours. (Someone is listening, yeah!) The G.Skill response: even one error is not acceptable to our company. Right answer! Newegg immediately shipped replacement G.Skill memory and included a pre-paid UPS mailing label to return the defective memory, so there was no cost to me for the replacement. I could have just as easily asked Newegg to refund the G.Skill and send me comparable Corsair memory. But I wanted to give G.Skill a chance. I received the replacement G.Skill memory in 2 days and tested with Memtest86+ for more than 48 hours with NO errors.

    5 out of 5 eggs Fantastic

    Pros: Because of these I have been able run so many programs, open up many tabs, and still have 30% available. Keep in mind I use 3 monitors.

    Speedy, snappy, awesome!

    Cons: None as far as I can tell

    Bottom Line: G. Skill is great and they stand behind their products. If you have an issue, you can be sure they'll try to fix it.

    Also I have managed to OC these to 1833 and they work great.

    5 out of 5 eggs I love Gskill

    Pros: Great value, excellent performance

    Cons: None

    Bottom Line: I've had Gskill ram in another system I built for four years now, and it has done everything I thought it would. The same can be said for this flavor of RAM. I experience no lag, but I do not play video games. I use multiple versions of graphic design software and have not experienced any issues thus far.

    Manufacturer Responses:

    . Dear Customer We are sorry to hear you are not fully satisfied with your purchase. This is a high capacity, high speed memory kit that is perfect for multi-tasking and tons of work. 16GB of DDR3-1600 CL9 is not general memory, it is much better than standard. The RAM can be overclocked and achieve a higher frequency than advertised. If that is something you are interested in and have questions or need assistance, feel free to let us know and we will be glad to help. The G.Skill technical forum is also available for many tips and pointers. For any further concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us directly. Thank you GSKILL SUPPORT Quality and customer service are our top priorities. Tech Support Email: RMA Dept Email: G.Skill Forum:

    5 out of 5 eggs So far running perfect!

    Pros: Just installed these bad boys into my 2 year old PC. Upgrading from a 4 GB corsair stick, which should have been 8 but one of the sticks was bad. Already noticed a huge difference. Load times for games is significantly lower, PC boots up faster, Photoshop is far more responsive etc...

    Cons: Not really a con, just something to watch out for. The Heat sinks on these are huge, so make sure you check the size of your CPU heat sink and make sure it isn't too big. I had to install them in slots 2 and 4 because my CPU heat sink was too big and the G Skill wouldn't fit in slot 1. Other than that, It's RAM. Everything is as advertised.

    Bottom Line: Great price and they even showed up a day ahead of schedule! Thanks Fed Ex! Would definitely recommend.
