The Z77 platform has been in full flow now for almost a month and Intel partners have been releasing a variety of motherboards for the 3rd generation of Intel Core processors. Recently we reviewed a prototype of the latest Kingston HyperX Genesis 2666mhz memory and today we are looking at a more affordable high performance offering from G.Skill. The TridentX 8GB 2400mhz kit is available for less than £100 in the UK today.
G.Skill have been extremely active in the last year, releasing some of the finest memory kits for the enthusiast audience while maintaining extremely competitive pricing. They have also been focusing on pushing performance to the limits, while breaking overclocking records.
The TridentX 2800MHz 16GB kit for instance has successfully achieved DDR3 3320MHz speed, when paired up with LN2 … we posted about this a short while ago. Sure, this isn't practical for the end user, but it certainly helps G.Skill to build up a reputation within enthusiast circles.
Is the G.Skill TridentX 8GB memory an ideal partner for a new Z77 system build?
