A short while ago we reviewed the G.Skill Ripjaws 4GB DDR3-2133mhz kit which was retailing for an incredibly low £50 inc vat. Today we are looking at the latest G.Skill 1600mhz RipjawsX bundle which is an 8GB kit retailing for £59.15 inc vat. Is this an ideal upgrade for your new system build? Has G.Skill made any compromises?
As we said before, G.Skill are peppering the market with quality products at extremely competitive price points. While the 4GB RipjawsX kit offers faster speeds, many people are feeling that 4GB is the minimum memory count for a new system, with a wider audience opting for 8GB configurations. The kit we are reviewing today is rated at 9-9-9-24 latencies @ only 1.5V.
