The G.Skill memory DDR3 2000 MHz Cas 9 memory kit

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.

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.
