G.Skill is a computer memory module manufacturer that has been around for a couple of years. In fact, they started selling memory modules for computers as early as 1989. Created by a group of computer enthusiasts, G.Skill RAMs have been touted to be one of the best in the business.
Today, we’re going to take a look at their G.Skill Ripjaws V RAM. This is the new DDR4 RAM that is compatible with Z170 motherboard chipsets. It offers speeds from 2133MHz up to an impressive 3,400MHz.
What can you expect from the G.Skill Ripjaws V?
Blazing Fast Transfer Speed
Available in a wide range of frequency options from standard DDR4-2133MHz to a blistering DDR4-3733MHz in dual channels, Ripjaws V lets you enjoy a faster computing experience for gaming, video & image editing, rendering, and data processing.
Rigorously Tested for Compatibility and Reliability
Each and every Ripjaws V DDR4 memory kit is tested with G.SKILL’s rigorous validation process on all major performance motherboard brands to ensure the best-in-class reliability and compatibility across the widest selection of motherboards.
Color It Up
Not only is the Ripjaws V designed with a sleek new look, but also available in five different colors: Blazing Red, Steel Blue, Radiant Silver, Gunmetal Gray, and Classic Black. Whether you’re a modder seeking matching hues or looking to build a stunning new system, Ripjaws V is a superb selection.
42mm Module Height
Continuing the tradition of aftermarket CPU cooler compatibility, Ripjaws V is designed with a 42mm module height suitable for most oversized CPU heatsinks.
Up to 64GB Ultra High Capacity
Ripjaws V offers various capacity configurations, not only with modules of 4GB and 8GB, but also in ultra-high 16GB capacities for up to 64GB (16GBx4). The possibilities are endless!
Designed with a low voltage of 1.2V~1.35V at DDR4 standard, this lowers the memory voltage requirement by 20% from DDR3 memory kits! Now your system can perform even faster without becoming an expensive appliance heater.
XMP 2.0 Support
Just set and go. Programmed with the latest Intel XMP 2.0 profiles, the only thing between you and extreme performance is a simple setting.
Limited Lifetime Warranty
All G.SKILL memory products come with a limited lifetime warranty and the G.SKILL technical team is always ready to provide consumers with complete technical support via online forum, Facebook, telephone, and email.
As you can see, the Ripjaws V not only performs really well, but it is also power efficient. It has XMP support which, when enabled, will use the advertised speed of the RAM, unlocking its full potential!
I am quite impressed with the G.Skill Ripjaws V. It comes in a variety of colors such as gunmetal black, blue, Silver and Red. You also have a number of options such as a 8GB module (2x4GB) or you can opt for the 64GB module (4x16GB).
Couple this with a great Z170 motherboard such as the MSI Z170a Gaming M7 with DDR4 Boost, and you can launch and play applications in no time!
G.Skill has made an amazing reputation, and if you’re planning to buy your gaming rig in the future, be sure to consider buying G.Skill RAMs. Trust me, you will not be disappointed!
