What customers say about "Key Specs"
G.Skill Ripjaws V 16GB (8GBx2) DDR4 3200 MHz C16 1.35V kit
  • Running fantastic with no faults, easily overclocked to 3200Mhz
  • Be sure to verify you MOBO can support dual channel for this product before you get it. Just check the MOBO manufacturer's website. I didn't, but 8 gigs on a single channel is still more than enough so far.
  • This works great, OC in the bios on Asus ROG Hero and is lightning Fast.
  • Works great and compatible with my Asus Maximus viii hero motherboard. All RAM detected, stable, and at speeds it promised.
  • Easy installation. Configured with XMP to 3200, they work perfectly and give excellent results in the benchmarks. Very satisfied.
G.Skill Trident Z 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 PC25600 3200MHz C16 Kit
  • This is some great memory. I had to change the speed of the memory from 2333 in the bios to the full 3200mhz at first boot but other than that they work perfectly.
  • Perfect pair of memory. Always work with G.Skill and never had problems.
  • Very fast memory. Good looking too. 3200 Mhz easy obtained by just selecting XMP profile in BIOS.
  • I picked this memory as it had decent performance out of the box which was important to me as i don't overclock beyond XMP profiles.
  • Bought the ram and it works great. Got it running at faster speeds without sacrificing timings.
