G.Skill Sniper SR2 8GB 1.25v Sandybridge Kit Review

Up Close

The Sniper comes in the standard plastic-sleeve style packaging 90% of memory arrives in. Otherwise there is little of note.

The heat-sink is shaped to ape a pistol and does so perfectly. As this is running at a mere 1.25v there is unlikely to be much heat to dissipate and that's enabled G.Skill to go bonkers with the design. The iron sights at either end aren't the nicely things to catch your fingers on, but otherwise the kit is a certain looker.

One of the things we like most is how they have resisted the temptation to go so crazy the Sniper ends up being a couple of inches tall. Rather they've compacted the design to ensure it still fits under pretty any CPU Heat-Sink you care to mention, which always scores points in our book.

Seems a great kit, would probably work well in a little SB file/media server for the eco people out there were it needs the performance when prompted for it but cuts back on leccy usage even that little bit over 1.5v kits.
