Packaging, hey we show you everything my man, we always start off with packaging so you know what to look for in the stores -- it's as simple as that really. And yes .. that might now be the final packaging. Hey we just care what's on the inside right. As you can see this kit comes with G.Skills memory, Turbulence II cooler and installation guide.
Here we have the DIMMs after unpacking. This is the 8GB 1600 MHz kit = PC3 12800 with 2x 4GB DIMMs. Overall a nice design, wish that the PCB would have been black though.
The heat spreaders are made out of aluminum for optimal heat conductivity. This kit can manage latencies of 7-8-7-24 at 1.65 Volts, and that is pretty impressive stuff for memory this dense alright. Label shows a Command rate 2T but we ran it at a command rate of 1T at all times, no probs whatsoever ;)
Very simple stuff, but the details of the modules can be read from a small sticker. You can spot the SKU code and generic info on there. Also primary info like latencies are displayed. It's good to see voltages being reported on there as well. A lot of memory producers lack this info, yet it is so important. Missing on the sticker is the command rate though.
G.Skill RipJaws SR910 7.1 channel headset review We review the RipJaws SR910 USB headset from G.Skill, this gaming headset offers 7.1 channel audio with the help of not two, no 10 drivers. Yep five in each ear-cup. The headset is aimed at gamers who...
G.Skill Sniper 8GB CL7 DDR3 memory review G.Skill designed another 8GB low voltage DDR3 kit (2x 4GB) that can be set at 1600 MHz yet still run a CAS latency of 7. And that is truly interesting because the denser the ICs get, the higher latency typically gets.
G.Skill 2x4GB CL7 1600 MHz Trident DDR3 review We feel that more memory is rather important, and in that trend memory manufacturers have started to increase the density of DIMM modules. Where 1 and 2GB DIMM modules have been the standard, we now see very good progress in 4 GB DIMM modules. Today we\'ll do things a little different, G.Skill designed a 8GB low voltage DDR3 kit (2x 4GB) that can be set at 1600 MHz yet still run a CAS latency of 7. And that is truly interesting because the denser the ICs get, the higher latency typically gets.
