Hey guys, I just ordered this 2GB set of ram...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820231047

What do you guys think of it? I dont plan to OC or anything thats why I went for a low latency ddr400 set...

Anyone here have any experience with G.SKILL? How is the company?

Bought a set for a friend from newegg. It was defective.

Good luck.

That's not what I usually like to hear.

When did you buy it? How was the RMA?

I have these G.Skill in my rig.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820231021

They do 2.5-3-3-8 at PC 3200 speeds and are good for 3-4-4-8 from 250-270 @ 1T. Some people have taken them higher and mine top at 270 @ 1T. They also hold a Trc as low as 7 all the way to 270.

That's my current 06 score with them:

I am still tweaking this new mobo and Xfire card so hopefully I will score more in a bit.

G.Skill has worked fine for me and YMMV.

Having had to do an RMA with both GSKill and OCZ I liked OCZ's service better.

My G.Skills have been very good to me. They also have a tech on msn who is usually on for most of the business day. He'd probably be willing to help if you had a problem.

Same here. Never had an issue. I dont overclock though.

Just installed the 2 gigs...Runs awsome so far! FEAR runs without any stuttering at all...smooth as silk! I'm going to install and run BF2 tonight to see how that goes. Also got the GRAW demo waiting for me. :)

I'll run memtest tonight to make sure there are no errors but so far its running at rated timings with no problems...

I've had good luck with some products that many others have had horrible luck with. And when I have bad luck it's usually with stuff that others have good luck with.
