G.Skill Ares F3-1600C8Q-16GAB 4x4GB DDR3 RAM Review
There is a German student in my power engineering class with a very strong accent. As such, my professor likes to call him 'Germany' in a humorous, good-natured way. One time, he was asked to come to the front of the class match up against another student in deriving a certain equation. "Where are we doing this?" Germany asked aloud. "In the skies of Southern England," I blurted out, albeit somewhat silently, near the back of the room. Whether you like it or not, war and conflict between nations has always been an integral part of human history. Sure, it is terrible -- I am not going to skirt around that question as we live in relative peace here in North America. We can only thank all the people who have put their lives on the line, and continue to do so as I type this paragraph, so that we can enjoy everything we have right now. People in the past had their culture deeply integrated with armed conflicts as well. In ancient Greek mythology, Ares is the god of war and violence. According to Burkert's book "Greek Religion", Ares is a powerful Olympian who is "overwhelming, insatiable in battle, destructive, and man-slaughtering" (1985, p. 169). With G.Skill naming their latest line of RAM after the Greek god of war, are we to expect something that can simply blow the competition out of the water? We took a G.Skill Ares F3-1600C8Q-16GAB 4x4GB DDR3 RAM kit in this morning, and see if it really packs the power to destroy under the hood.
