We check out the latest iteration of G.Skill's popular Trident Z memory


  1. Only problem with gskill is their availability is poor.

  2. This raises a good point. generally CL7 kits are much better quality than the CL9 counterparts which are cheaper. CL9 also have lower production costs.

  3. GSKILL are small but they know the enthusiast audience demands very well. This looks to be a fantastic kit. well worth looking at in the new year for a new system

  4. I still have a 2GB GSKILL kit that I bought years ago and I think this company are much better than OCZ or any of the others for performance memory.

  5. very good performance. 4GB sticks used to be painfully bad. like this pricing too

  6. G.Skill has good price/performance value there. I got their Trident kit last year. It’s oced like a dream and price is good too.

  7. very very sexy, like it.

  8. I need new memory, but 4GB is more than enough. still, gskill make good stuff. always liked their ram.
