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.
It is not often that we do an unboxing of a memory kit, but since G.Skill has recently released their RipjawsZ Extreme Performance Quad-Channel Memory kits we have decided to show you what they are all about. Today we are checking out the F3-17000CL9Q-16GBZH kit. This quad-channel 16GB kit runs at 2133MHz with timings of 9-11-10-28 at 1.65V. These kits are made and certified exclusively for the Intel X79 platform. Read on to check out our unboxing and overview video!
