Default G.Skill 6GB PC3-12800 Triple Channel DDR3 Kit Review

Hey everyone, we have just posted a review of the surprisingly affordable G.Skill F3-12800CL9T-6GBNQ, a 6GB DDR3-1600 9-9-9 triple-channel memory kit with a low 1.5-1.6V default voltage.

If you have any comments and questions, you can post them here here, and I will do my best to answer them

Excellent review! That's an impressive price-point, too.


I am so glad I found this place on teh innarwebz.

Check out the Evga Web Site.....apparently not listed as compatible with the Evga X50 Board and a number of folks replacing them with listed compatible Memory.....I don't have the specific link, but I did recall reading it...

mobo ram compatibility lists are a joke. They're never an exhaustive list. My memory was not listed as compatible for my board either and yet 1 year later it's still working fine. Unless there are credible reports of users having problems (ie. the crappy crucial ballitixs frying with certain boards a while back) then you can be pretty darn sure they'll work without a hitch

Just bought some of this RAM, tired of waiting for back ordered OCZ crap... This seems to be money better spent anyways. Nice review BTW.

Hey man...I'm just posting what I read.......I've been on the Evga Forum steady for the last 3 days getting settings to get my I7 Rig stable...I agree, not all "compatible lists" are accurate, BUT...as said..their are a number of folks having issues with G-Skill 3 x 2GB Tri Channel sets........then again, what do I know??........

Nice review. Shame about the overclocking, but it looks like putting it a little over 1700 at CAS 9 will be the performance winner, although I'd like to see how it does at CAS 8 1500.

These sticks aren't manufactured with HCF0's, at least mine weren't.

Where did you hear that they might be based on those ICs?
