When it comes to purchasing memory, G.Skill may not be one of the first names that springs to mind unless you’re an enthusiast. For those who aren’t, what you may not realise is that G.Skill have been operating for a number of years and their be all and end all about everything is quality.
Quality control is self explained and any company will have a department which makes sure that all of their products are of the best quality possible, however G.Skill have an in-house IC testing department which physically tests each and every one to make sure that they are 100% reliable.
Late last year we took a look at G.Skill’s Ripjaws-X memory kit and we were impressed by its high levels of performance and highly affordable price tag. The Ripjaws-Z is a completely new line for the company and these kits are designed specifically for X79 and its somewhat insane memory bandwidth. The kit we are looking at today comes with a whopping 16GB running at 1866MHz. What we have to remember is that X79 is so much like X58 and is all about bandwidth however we do find that these kits are some of the fastest around with kits with speeds upto a whopping 2500MHz available.
We find the kit in a two sided blister pack with two of the 4GB modules to the front and rear. On the back of the pack there is a brief introduction into quad channel memory and how it is designed specifically for X79 based systems.
