G.Skill Sniper Low Voltage Worth It?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Right now my 2x4gb Corsair Vengeance 8gb 1600 1.5v ram has 1 stick defective. Ordered it this month for $85 and I can either rma return or replace from newegg. I was wondering if it was worth returning for this G.Skill ram that is on sale.

Would the low voltage help with anything? Its almost $10 cheaper and comes with a flash drive. Also I'm guessing it would be faster returning because I can order now and not have to wait for newegg to receive my rma.

Thoughts please

Looks like a good deal with 15 percent off promo code.

Well if it can do 9-9-9-24 at 1.25v maybe you can crank up the voltage and lower down the timings.

It's a possibility but I can't say with 100% certainty how low your timings can go.

I'm guessing its going to cost about $10 to ship it back so it will be about the same price. But I can't tell if its better than the vengeance. I wonder if i would be able to lower these to 1.25v

Great deal for those GSkill Snipers Here are a couple of reviews about the Snipers you're considering. Hope the reviews help with your decision.
