So here's where we end up at the doorsteps of G.Skill. Recently they introduced a pretty high-end triple channel DDR3 memory kit.
The kit is available under SKU code F3-16000CL9T-3GBPI-B, and is short for a CAS 9 PC3 16000 Low-Voltage Triple Channel kit. We will be testing the 3GB kit with 3 x 1GB modules. G.Skill was among the first memory manufacturer to release the new Triple Channel DDR3 memory kits in the 2000MHz PC3-16000 speed rating.
Triple Channel kit (3x1GB)
6-layer PCB, designed for Intel Core i7 based systems
240-pin DDR3 SDRAM memory modules
Three single-sided 1GB DDR3 memory modules
The trick as explained for G.Skill is simple: bring reliable and fast memory to the market, yet make it cost-effective memory. This is a 3GB DDR3 2000MHz DDR3 Triple Channel memory kit. PC3-16000 rating, timings of CL9 (9-9-9-24) at 1.65V.
It's EPP enhanced memory, meaning that the mainboards that support it (EPP/XMS/XMP), can read the pre-set configuration from the memory for optimal timings. You might want to do it like I do though, set it manually, please. In fact we recommend the 2000 MHz frequency timings and voltage to be set manually in the BIOS.

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.
