    Hey Guys,
    Just purchased G. Skill Ripjaws Series (2 X 4 GB ) 240 Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800. )

    Out of curiosity, anyone else have this memory and have you had any luck overclocking. My specs are Asus Maximus III Formula, Intel Core i7 875K ( Cooler Master V8), Radeon HD 5770, and OCZ 700 PSU.

    The reason I'm asking is the price was so low ($99.00 promotion, $120 regular). I'm thing about going ahead and ordering a second set but wanted to make sure I'm getting a good deal!

    Thanks, John;)

    Never used g.skill however it is listed on the qvl list at asus so it should work ok. Remember no overclock is guaranteed; you may or may not get a little more spd out of the memory. Do check the required vdimm [ram voltage] and set that value in the bios since it will probably default to 1.5V and that memory will most likely need a higher vdimm.

    Make sure after any overclock, you test for stability. An overclock that is not prime95 stable is worthless.
