    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 ... Read more

    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

    3 out of 5 eggs First Impressions Not So Hot

    Pros: Thanks to Newegg, received the RAM quickly...

    Cons: Determined both sticks of RAM as defective after several failed attempts to boot. Finally inserted sticks 1 at a time and booted into Windows. The first stick caused application errors immediately followed by a blue screen memory dump shortly thereafter. After removing the 1st bad stick, replacing with the 2nd stick and booting into Windows successfully, my computer appeared to be functioning fine. I attempted to run Memtest and my computer crashed again with a blue screen memory dump. I am running the ASUS P8Z68-V mobo, as well.

    Based on this, I am not happy at this point considering I am now required to pay for return shipping to Newegg due to a defective product which clearly slipped through quality testing.

    Cons: Quit after two years, but it was quickly replaced under warranty.

    Bottom Line: Never had RAM go, but I assume it will happen one time or another. Happy RMA came through with no hassle.

    5 out of 5 eggs Great Memory, but it's expensive at the moment

    Pros: I've been building computers for myself, friends, and family for 13+ years now and I am a systems / network admin at a large company.

    This is great RAM, highly overclockable if that is your thing, but it's plenty fast on its own for people that don't want to mess with that. My current system is using this RAM and I've been pleased with it

    Cons: The price, although it's in line with other RAM at the moment... that is to say RAM is just expensive in general right now and I don't know why. When I bought this -exact- RAM in February 20013, it cost me $95. As of today (09/12/2014), it costs $165. Given that better RAM has come out since then I am disappointed with the price.

    Bottom Line: I'd buy another 16GB of RAM today if the price were closer to what it was 19 Months ago. I'd like to go from 16 to 32 GB of RAM but I can't quite swallow a 70%+ price increase.

    5 out of 5 eggs This RAM is weird, but good

    Pros: Great RAM, can even overclock it really high

    Cons: None

    Bottom Line: My sticks are... odd. I had them overclocked to 2133MHz completely stable (Could have gone higher if I tried I bet) with 11 12 11 timings, however, I could not get these sticks to boot at 1866MHz, no matter what timings or voltage (Up to 1.65) I put it at. Not a con or something big enough to take an egg away, just really odd.
