Pros: High rated, Price, Removable top heatsink, fits under NH-D14, Tight Timings

Cons: Will not reach rated Frequency, Uneeded heatsinks, customer support is crude and unfriendly

I loved how I could buy the literal perfect RAM for my setup. biggrin.gif High speed, good timings, great price, can fit under my massive NH-D14. Went to the store, bought these DIMM's for $79.99, rushed home to put them in my computer.
Then the problems started, the screws to remove the top fin are stuck to this rubber seal stuff and I nearly destroyed the screws trying to get them out, because the Philips screw driver was tearing up the metal on the heads. mad.gif I finally got the top sink off and put one in and booted up, set DOCP profile, then started with good old memtest86(because I always had bad luck with DIMMs for some reason) and sure enough within 5 minutes there were errors, so I put in the other stick and same thing happens. So I tried bumping up the voltage all the way to 1.71(default 1.65) and still giving me errors. frown.gif

Then I lowered it to the max speed my processor could do not overclocked(1866) and got the timings to CL6-7-8-12-1T @1.66250 biggrin.gif
I was very happy with this so I posted my results in a review on New Egg.

Upon posting my results on New Egg in a review, the G.Skill staff said that I must use the correct sized Philips head to make sure stripping doesn't occur and that even though I did not achieve the rated speed, it was OK because tight timings at a lesser speed will get you the same results. Basically telling me I am to incompetent to know how to use their product correctly, and it is all my fault, that I did not buy an Intel based system. mad.gif

Overall it is a good product, but I don't want to support a bunch of egotistical jerks on my hard earned money. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif
