G.Skill RipjawsX (F3-1600C9Q-32GXM) 1600MHz 32GB (4x 8GB) Memory Kit Review

G.Skill ships the 32GB RipjawsX memory kit in a simple plastic ‘clamshell’ style package. A pair of sticks is located on the packaging’s front side, with the other pair housed at the rear. Information regarding the kit’s specific speed, timings and voltage is listed on the packaging’s rear face.

The bundle consists of the four 8GB memory sticks, in addition to a G.Skill case sticker which reads “G.Skill – Go Beyond Limit”.

Located on the bottom-right corner of the ‘RipjawsX’ sticker is information regarding the memory kit’s frequency, timings and voltage.

Attractive sky blue heatsinks are used to cool the 8GB DIMMS. The RipjawsX heatsinks follow G.Skill’s traditional design which has proven its effectiveness many times in the past.

We are very pleased to see G.Skill using a black PCB, rather than green.

With a height of 40mm, the attractive RipjawsX heatsink makes each module around 9.5mm taller than a standard DIMM PCB.

The RipjawsX modules’ light blue colour scheme is a perfect match for blue-themed motherboards such as our Asus P8Z77-V.

At around 9.5mm taller than a standard memory module, it is unlikely that interference with a large CPU cooler will be a regular problem for the G.Skill RipjawsX sticks, but it could present issues for certain users.
