I remember when I was kinda new with computers (between 1 and 2 years ago) and I was building my desktop, I picked out some overpriced ram. I was too unfamiliar with ram to realize that 120$ for a 4gb 2333mhz kit was grossly overpriced. I don't think that Kingston even makes ram at that speed anymore. Funny because my motherboard only ran it at 1333mhz anyways. Since then, I sold the 4gb kit and purchased an 8gb gskill 1600mhz kit for under 50$. The problem with high speed ram is that it offers nothing in regards to performance to warrant the nearly doubled price.

It's a recommended product at twice the price of competing products? Surely the specs look nice on paper and the design might be something of interest to some but nowhere does the testing show that it's actually worth it for desktop users.

Also you keep referencing 1866mhz kits while there is not a single one in the tests.

And it would be nice except for the lack of CPUs can take full advantage of RAM running at 2400 speeds... only server CPUs do that. Most desktop CPUs don't take advantage of RAM that runs faster than 1600 natively. By the time CPUs come close to having native support for that, it's likely we'll see DDR4 hit the market.

Not to mention the price doesn't justify the increase in speed... better off getting some cheaper ram that has a lower speed but with alot tighter timings TBH

Back when G.Skill came out it was cheap and had excellent overclocking potential. But, every stick of it I bought died over the course of 2-3 years. I've strayed away from this brand since then. Just my experience. I realize that was just one of the many types of G.Skill, but that ruined my experience.
