I hope it turns out good... not too happy with the performance. From what I was reading, I was actually expecting it to run a bit faster.biggrin.gif

Sweet... it was on the pic but just wanted to make sure. Does it save it to your Documents folder?

Getting a bum product happens in electronics, if you look back i got a Sabertooth that would only run my vid card at x4 speed instead of x16. I replaced the board and am awaiting rma for the broken one then will help a friend with the board they send me back. This is my first time with G.Skill i got them just as a switch up, previously i had Dominator GT's (have always been a corsair guy for ram) and so far i have seen no difference from the two companies id buy from either again. I would make G.Skill replace the sticks and your problem should be solved.

I agree, getting a Bum product it's a possibility, however they pass memtestx86 and windows memory test at 2400 Mhz and 1.65V using XMP 1 and 2, so they are not "defective" i guess, they just freeze windows if voltage it's at 1.65V..... they seems to work fine when volts are increased to 1.75....also my experience is the same at the one on this review G.SKILL Trident X 2400MHz Ram Review - not up to enthusiast grade, I guess they got a Bum product also, so go figure... if that's the case then G.Skill Quality Control is to blame.....All i can say is that If I had read that review I would have not bought them at all....but i bought them before the review was published.

I'd replace them for another kit if I lived in the US, but I live in Venezuela South America...I buy this parts in the USA and have them shipped via a private forwarder, so it's an extra cost to send them back to check if it's really a Bum product, My best option it's to sell them at cost down here or keep them running at 1.75V

I'm testing them with the same CPU 4.5 Ghz Overclock I had with my Other Corsair Vengeance 1866 Kit .......as I write this....they have passed 35/100 Runs of IBT @ Very High Level, but that's with Dram Volts 1.75V and VCCSA to 1.25V....they seems to work fine but only with increased volts, will post the SS when i completes.

The RAM issues are interesting. This may not sound very helpful at all so sorry rolleyes.gif
I've matched a few Asus boards now with various types of corsair RAM. They've always been a perfect match for me.
It's a bit boring maybe but they always just work !

Anyhow , good luck , still loving the new sabertooth.

All this talk about testing got me to wondering why the ASUS guy on Newegg TV says to NOT use Prime95 to test your system?

I have seen that also. I started using IBT to test then the actual games I play. IBT usually shows 5-10C higher than anything I see while gaming so I figure good enough/

Just wanted you guys to know the G.SKILL Trident X 2400MHz 16 GB 4 x 4 GB Kit passed IBT 100 Runs on Very High with my 4.5 GHz Overclock also, again in order to get my kit stable at DDr3 2400 (XMP 2 Profile) I had to up the Volts to 1.75....I'm disappointed my my kit was not stable at 1.65 volts and just the XMP Profile, but i guess at least it works....

At 1.75v won't the RAM get quite hot?  Asking because I'm new to overclocking.

I don't remember, my board is being RMAed at the moment. I believe it asks you where you want to save it to when you press F12 though.

I see the same with any product, you can see the reviews and theres always some with ANY product that have issues. You have 4 people including myself reporting no issues and certainly not over volting our ram to hit 2400 as specified by the ram. You really shouldnt have to overvolt the ram to hit 2400.
