G,Skill Ripjaws X 2133MHz 8GB Kit Review

Test Setup and Overclocking

G,Skill Ripjaws X 8GB Kit Review

Test Setup

8GB G.Skill Ripjaws X 2133MHz
Forceware 275.20
Gigabyte Z68X UD5 B3
Intel Core i5-2500K @ 4.4 GHz
Be Quiet Dark Power Pro
Windows 7 64 Bit SP1


Overclocking Memory is no longer as easy as it once was, thanks to the methodology employed by the LGA1155 platform. There isn't a choice to go any higher than 2133MHz so we're limited to timing changes.

The Ripjaws X are already at the 1.65v limit so we weren't expecting much as we can't pump some extra voltage through them for stability.

However, we did manage to slightly tighten things from 9-11-9-28-2N to 9-10-9-27-1N, and that will be the basis for our testing today.

Nice performance and price

I don't like the new style of the Ripjaws I think the original style looked better, still good RAM though.Quote

It says £150 in the conclusion, they probably aren't out yet but Ebuyer and Overclockers usually stock the Ripjaw RAM so keep an eye on those.Quote

I just bought the 4 Gb Kingston Hyper-X 2133Mhz Genesis off the back of OC3D review. Benchies seem pretty similar to these. No need to send them back!Quote
