What customers say about "Key Specs"
G.Skill Flare X 16 GB (8GB x 2) DDR4 3200 MHz
  • It's fast. Right out of the box, threw in this RAM into my MSI X470 Pro Carbon, went into the BIOS, picked the 3200 MHz profile, and it worked without any fuss.
  • Runs without problems at 3200 MHz and this stable.
  • Great for Ryzen. With gigabytes b350 they are viewed via XMP at 3200. No stability issues.
  • This is the best possible DDR4 RAM you can get for Ryzen right now, runs out of the box at 2400Mhz.
  • Ryzen loves high speed and low latency memory, and this is a good combination of both.
G.Skill Ripjaws V 16GB (8GBx2) DDR4 3200 MHz C16 1.35V kit
  • Running fantastic with no faults, easily overclocked to 3200Mhz
  • Be sure to verify you MOBO can support dual channel for this product before you get it. Just check the MOBO manufacturer's website. I didn't, but 8 gigs on a single channel is still more than enough so far.
  • This works great, OC in the bios on Asus ROG Hero and is lightning Fast.
  • Works great and compatible with my Asus Maximus viii hero motherboard. All RAM detected, stable, and at speeds it promised.
  • Easy installation. Configured with XMP to 3200, they work perfectly and give excellent results in the benchmarks. Very satisfied.

What customers say about "Features"
G.Skill Flare X 16 GB (8GB x 2) DDR4 3200 MHz
  • The heatsink has a look I personally like, even though it does add height to it.
  • Very cool looking and considering its tight timings and higher operating voltage @ 1.35V it's very cool indeed @ 33C under load.
  • It has some alright overclocking potential as you could overclock this to 3333mhz, 3400mhz or higher depending on silicon lottery, motherboard, ram, cpu imc, etc.
  • No gimmicks, just great quality for the price.
  • I was running very stable with x2 sticks at 3200Mhz.
