This time around we’re taking a look at G.Skill’s TridentX series. Starting at 2133Mhz and going all the way up to 2800Mhz, the TridentX Series is brutally fast. A black and red theme well suited to ASUS’ ROG series or ASRock’s Fatal1ty series, it looks awesome if you’re the kind of person who likes oversized or extreme styling.
The kit G.Skill have sent us is the middle of the spectrum; 2400Mhz, yet it’s only CAS 10 – speeds, with high speeds with such low latency this kit promises to be a strong performer. Lets check it out!
Samsung are well known as manufacturers of consumer televisions, laptops and other electronics. Samsung’s SSDs have been gathering traction and some rave reviews across the industry, and also picking up steam are Samsung’s offerings to the memory sector. Available in 2GB or 4GB DIMMs, with kits available for 4GB, 8GB and in some locations, 16GB, Samsung have something available for every user. Rated at 1600Mhz at only 1.35v, the kit is designed to fit into the low voltage/green market segment. With stock timings of 11-11-11-28, these kits aren’t aimed at the performance consumer.. but knowing that these DIMMs also support higher voltages, lets see how far we can push them, shall we?
