Introduction to the G.Skill Ripjaws Z DDR3 2133 8GB Quad Kit
The X79 chipset may not be the newest chipset from Intel but it is the highest performing one as of right now. And if you have had the opportunity to play around with it in an overclocking manner you will know that the whole process is easier than some of the much older chipsets but not as easy as the P67/Z68 chipsets. This is due mostly to the addition of the CPU Strap which I am a fan of. It finally, well to a point to play more with the clock of the CPU.
And with the addition of the CPU Strap allows us to take the memory bus higher in smaller increments. And this is great with you have some pretty solid memory modules. And today on tap we feel that we do have a set of memory we consider solid. The kit is from G.Skill and is called the Ripjaws Z and is rated at 2133 MHz but it would be silly to not try and take them farther.
