G.SKILL is one of the move respected names in the computer industry. Established in 1989 by enthusiasts, they have become one the leading memory module manufacturers. They also have one the most extensive range of computer memory products available. They have 13 different series of desktop memory alone.
The 16GB 3000MHz quad channel kit we are reviewing today is in the upper middle of the memory speed scale for the Ripjaws 4 line. They feature blue heat spreaders and a G.SKILL decal on each side of the modules. The Ripjaws 4 certainly look and sound the part. The Ripjaws 4 series offers speeds from 2133MHz all the way up to an impressive 3333Mhz. They feature medium profile blue, blue, or red aluminum heat spreaders with a total memory module height of 40 mm. Not all heat spreader colors are available in all speeds and latency configurations. Their 40mm height should clear most aftermarket air cooler, but it is best to check first, before you purchase either. They are available in quad channel kits and with capacity configurations of 16GB and 32GB.
