Personally I've had more issues with crucual and patriot then I have G. Skill or geil. Those 2 seem to be the better of the bunch
never had any issues with G. Skill and only one with Geil the other 2 I've had multiple issues with.
Second this. Horrible experience with multiple corsair sets. Never once with gskill, and they overclock like a champ. What makes them seem like a b-rate company to you Shaky? And the one time I had to RMA a gskill set (figured out it wasn't the memory at all though, so I didn't need to go through with it) they had me an RMA number and shipping label in less than 24 hours. Thats not a diss on corsair's customer service though, Ive just never had to use theirs. Both sets of corsair sticks I had would either throw errors or insisted on only running at 1333- 1600 (rated) would crash, no matter the voltage increases/timing changes.
Personally to me patriot seems like a gimmicky company out of all the three. What type of memory are you currently shopping for, or were you just curious about gskill?
But honestly, youre probably going to get 50/50 on any company out of everyone who responds based on their experience.
