G.SKILL is definitely a name you have to think of when it comes to high-performance memory. G.SKILL entered the DDR4 market with their Ripjaws 4 quad channel kits that launched with the Intel X99 chipset. Now that we have DDR4 on the mainstream Z170 chipset G.SKILL comes back with Ripjaws V, which are available in quite a few different offerings and offer a more subtle look. G.SKILL is offering their Ripjaws V memory in speeds all the way up to 3600 MHz in both 8GB and 16GB dual channel kits. Today we will be taking a look at the F4-3200C16D-8GVK kit which is an 8GB kit that runs at 3200 MHz with timings of 16-16-16-36 at 1.35V. Let’s get this kit in our Z170 system and see what it can do!
The Ripjaws V DDR4-3200 8GB Dual Channel Memory Kit comes in the typical clear packaging we expect from G.SKILL. This allows you to see the kit before you buy it, although our modules are in the package so we really can’t see the main side of the heatspreader.
Flipping the package over to the back it gives us more information on the kit and lets us know the official model of the kit.
Getting everything out of the package we have the two memory modules and a G.SKILL case badge.
