With expensive memory often come a some extra's. G.Skill offers a life-time warranty with these memory modules, you can't beat that. Look at the heat spreaders, it's fairly unusual to see a design like that. One thing is a sure fact, you either like or hate the aesthetics. The green PCB bothers me a little though. Styling wise that's a missed opportunity.
The heatspreader is designed to enhance heat dissipation allowing better tweaks and overclocks. As a result this is not low profile memory though. The idea is that heat is moved away from the actual memory chips and this increases potential overclocking and stability.
The kits will be sold with a G.Skills memory fan to decrease the system temperatures and provide further overclocking headroom during tweaking.
The fan is quite silent, but the extra tweak potential always will be a little relative. We assume that if you build a PC with such high-end components, your chassis airflow would not be an issue either. It's definitely a nice stylish item that will look great in any PC. And in combo with the Turbulence II memory fan the results could be wicked.
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.
