G.Skill Ripjaws 4 3200MHz DDR4 memory Review

G.Skill Ripjaws 4 3200MHz Review

Introduction

We're currently in the midst of a transformation. Anyone who was around during the switch from DDR2 as the mainstay in our systems to DDR3 will know how long it took for DDR3 to be affordable and a requirement for the majority of system builds. 

When Intel added DDR4 support to their latest motherboards the old cycle is repeating itself. 90% of people have DDR3 in their rigs, and DDR4 is prohibitively expensive for all but the most well-heeled and demanding user. However, like any step change in hardware it's fun for those of us who haven't got a DDR4 capable system to marvel at what is possible, and get used to it because in a couple of years time it will form a part of our own rigs as it moves down the food chain.

Welcome, therefore, to the G.Skill Ripjaws 4 review. A monster memory kit with 16GB capacity running at a whopping 3200MHz. Very nearly £400s worth of memory at the time of writing. A figure which, in years to come, will seem ridiculous. But then DDR3 was eye-wateringly expensive when it first appeared too. So let's forget the cost, fire up our LGA2011 test bed and get to grips with the Ripjaws 4.

"Leave the fans in the box" - EXACTLY what I did.

I ran them for a night, realised they were pointless and the red didn't go with the white / black / silver colour scheme - now they're in the cupboard!

Brilliant sticks though, I was very surprised having never gone with G.Skill before.Quote

I really wasn't expecting such a jump in gaming performance considering memory speed never really mattered (for the most part) in the past for gaming. Very nice sticks aswell!Quote
