G.Skill Ripjaws-X DDR3-2133 8GB Dual Channel Memory Kit Review

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.

Special thanks to G.Skill for providing us with the Ripjaws-X DDR3-2133 8GB Dual Channel Memory Kit to review.

Packaging
Rather than just coming in the typical clamshell packaging this Ripjaws kit comes in a larger box, you will see why in just a second.  There is a simple G.Skill logo on the top of the box.  On the backside you have all the information about the modules inside.

Opening the box up the first thing that you see is not the memory, but a cooling unit.  This is why the memory did not come in a clamshell package.  Getting everything out of the box you have the 2 memory modules, the silence II cooler and instructions for installing the silence II cooler.
