Terrible

18 months ago.

Customer service is terrible. The only way to truly know if the RAM you are getting is compatible with the BOARD you are using is to actually go to G.Skills website and use their recommended configuration...if you're lucky to find what you want in stock somewhere. Long story short - they don't list serials on any of their products - so by going the way of their marketing "All major motherboards" "Asus Sync" and some other clues told me that this would probably work. 2x8 no worries. 4x8 big problems because I didn't get the "Quad" set and I didn't get the "TZRX" instead of the "TZR" Support would not help me because I purchased 2 2x8 instead of 2 2x16 sets but guess what? Good luck trying to find a quad set and be prepared to spend upwards of $500 that does not promise anything. Went with a no name brand T-DELTA group 2x16 @3000MHZ not a single issue and no - it's not on Asus QVL or T-DELTA. DDR4 is DDR4. For years I've mixed and matched kingston, seagate, and samsung. NEVER a problem as long as the speed is the same. Save yourself some money - it's really not worth it.
