Alongside the CPU is 16GB of Kingston memory in the black T1 heatsink, which matches the black and orange theme perfectly. Given how much work goes on in Photoshop and the like the 16GB is more important than absolute performance, but it looks damn good against the black slots of the Asrock Z68.
Intel certainly got the memory side of the Z68 chipset worked out perfectly. When we consider that this 1600MHz setup is faster than the quad-channel GTX8 in the X79 rig it's proof of how nailed on the underlying controller is. Although the 2133MHz kit on the stock 2600K setup shows how much extra performance would be available from a faster setup.
