Review: G.Skill Aegis 16GB DDR4 16GISB K2 3000 C16 [F4-3000C16D-16GISB]

Memory G.Skill Aegis 16GB DDR4 16GISB K2 3000 C16 [F4-3000C16D-16GISB] has excellent compatibility with systems based on Ryzen processors, overclocking potential up to 3333 Mhz. Instead of radiators, metallized stickers are used here, which, if necessary, can be replaced. But if the user will not engage in extreme overclocking, there will most likely not be overheating problems.

We recommend to purchase this memory for assembling an inexpensive working, gaming PC, if you are limited in budget. 16 GB of memory operating in dual channel mode should be enough for the vast majority of popular programs and many modern games.

For those to whom 16 Gb will seem a little: in our previous review we wrote about the same bundle, but with 32 GB of memory. It also differs from its competitors by a low price and a good value in terms of cost / capacity / quality ratio.

Review of G.Skill Aegis 16GB DDR4 16GISB K2 3000 C16 [F4-3000C16D-16GISB]

The G.Skill memory kit of the Aegis series is one of the most popular products in our joint purchases in the RAM category. The memory from a reputable manufacturer works without any complaints from the users. The choice of G.Skill Aegis is made due to the low price of the kits, the possibility of overclocking and the variety of options for purchase (with different timings, capacity, dual-channel / single-channel versions).

The product is a good solution for gaming and working computers, as it is characterized by high stability, energy efficiency and chip quality. Memory kits come with a limited lifetime warranty.

This budget kit has its minor drawbacks. For example, the fact that the set delivers in an unsealed blister and anyone who wants can unnoticeably open the memory and test it. Instead of a radiator, a metallized sticker is used here.

In general, everyone agrees that when buying on a computeruniverse, in terms of price / capacity / speed, memory bypasses many of its competitors.

Works Great (When Not Defective)
May 15, 2017 [Verified Purchase]

Bought this RAM because it’s the same model I originally got with my mobo when I built my computer.
Sadly the first batch that were sent to me were defective and I had to send them back, but I got my refund processed the same day and received replacement sticks 2 days later and they are working beautifully.

Customer feedback from Amazon, which had to deal with defective goods.

Had some trouble when I first installed them. Computer was only registering one of them. After I switched them and re inserted them like 4 times it finally booted up fine with both sticks registering. Works perfect now, zero complaints.
