G.Skill Ripaws V 16GB DDR4 3200

Final Thoughts and Conclusion

Everything we liked about the Ripjaws V 3000MHz kit is here with the 3200MHz kit, just at a higher speed. The red heatspreaders still look good and decals applied to the heatspreaders add a touch of class. They would great installed in any motherboard with red accents. At 42mm tall, the modules should clear most aftermarket air coolers. Additional black, blue, sliver, and gunmetal colors that should allow color matching to almost any build.

Like the 3000MHZ kit, when it came to overclocking, the Ripjaws V 3200 MHz, were definitely no slouch either. They do seem a bit finicky with the timings, preferring increased voltage over loosened timings. A combination if both is needed to the best results. For those that may not be comfortable running their memory at 1.4V on a daily basis, 3466MHz is still an easy option. For those who want to go all out, 3733MHz or even higher is a possibility.

At the time of testing, I was able to find this kit Newegg and Amazon around $105.99. Like all of G.SKILL's memory, they feature a lifetime warranty. The Ripjaws V has a great combination of price, performance, and cosmetics.
