Hello,

I'm looking at getting some 12gb memory (3x4gb) for my new PC I’m building but the memory is by G.Skills who I have not heard of before. I was wondering if they are any good? The price is!!

Its the G.Skill 12GB (3x4GB) DDR3 PC3-10666 1333MHz Triple Channel Kit by the way.

Thanks

Can you tell me the motherboard as most manufacturers have a QVL which shows the compatibility of many brands of Ram. Very useful as my last build I have many problems with the RAM the Mobo just would not get on with it.

As for GSkill its a very good brand.

It’s the Asus P6X58D Premium. I will admit that I haven't looked in the manual to see if it compatible yet as I was at work.

Would this be ok?

G.Skill Ripjaw 12GB (3x4GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 1600MHz Dual Channel Kit

On the G Skill website it says it will work fine with my board (Asus P6X58D) but in my user guide and on the Asus website its not on the list? I’m very confused

I'm also running GSkill RAM (Trident) on an Asus motherboard at 2000MHz without problems. It does takes a while for Asus to update their QVL, assuming they test the RAM in the first place.

If you want to be certain you can ask in the GSkill forum at click here I couldn't find the confirmation on the site that it works with that motherboard but I suspect it will.

One of the good things about GSkill (and Corsair) is that they have a lifetime warranty and pretty good technical backup on the forum although it can take a while to get an answer.

That's a very good price for 12GB but are you certain that you'll need that much?

What operating system are you intending to use ie 64bit or 32bit?
