The G.Skill RipJawsZ 16GB 2400mhz arrives in a large cardboard box with the company name on the front. This is significantly larger than any other memory box we have received in recent months.
Inside, are two separate boxes, both labelled with ‘G.Skill’ branding. Inside each box is a memory fan cooler which connects to either a molex port, or a header on the motherboard.
The memory ships inside protective covers as shown above. G.Skill also bundle a user manual.
The fan cooling units are comprised of two Young Lin 50mm fans, marked ‘DFS501012l’. These are rated 12V/0.8W and include a blue LED.
The G.Skill RipJawsZ 16GB might not look as nice as the Corsair GTX8 memory, but it will appeal to users who have limited space in their case, as they don’t ship with an oversized heatspreader. The memory also won’t cause fitting problems when paired up with an oversized cpu cooler such as the Noctua NH D14.
2,400 mhz DDR3 memory does tend to run quite hot, so if you don’t use the supplied cooling fans, just ensure your case has decent airflow around the memory sockets on the motherboard.
