With Intel’s X79 chipset we started to see quad channel DDR3 memory. It is crazy to think that in just a short period of time we have gone from dual channel to quad channel memory. Not long after Intel released the X79 platform we started to see quad channel kits designed and certified specifically for the platform. Today we are taking a look at one such kit, the G.Skill RipjawsZ DDR3-2133 16GB quad channel kit (F3-17000CL9Q-16GBZH). This kit features four 4GB modules that run at 2133MHz with timings of 9-11-10-28. Read on as we take a look at our first quad channel memory kit.
Sandy Bridge, by now you all know the name and you know that Intel’s new processors blew the socks off almost anything out there. With this whole new architecture comes a new line of components made specifically for Sandy Bridge. Today we will be taking a look at some memory from our friends at G.Skill. A little while back we took a look at their 1600 MHz Ripjaws memory and today we are checking out the 2133 MHz Ripjaws-X memory, more specifically the Ripjaws-X F3-17000CL9D-8GBXLD kit. This kit runs at 2133 MHz with timings of 9-11-9-28 at 1.65v. Let’s take a look at this memory and see if it is perfect for your Sandy Bridge setup.
