G.Skill Releases TridentX DDR3 Kits for Ivy Bridge

G.Skill is offering DDR3 memory kits for Intel's Ivy bridge processors and Z77 platform.

Released as TridentX series memory kits, the devices are available in 2400 MHz, 2600 MHz, 2666 MHz and 2800 MHz versions. The company says that the 2800 MHz kit has been overclocked to 3320 MHz, while the 2666 MHz kit has reached 2933 MHz.

According to the manufacturer, the TridentX memory ships with a removable top fin heat spreader to provide more flexibility when enthusiasts want to use the memory with other memory cooling systems.

The new TridentX memory is offered in 8 GB, 16 GB and 32 GB kits. pricing has not been released.

    1.65V? Where's the promised voltage drop from Sandy Bridge's 1.5V RAM?

    Wow. Makes my little 2000Mhz Corsairs look pathetic in comparison.

    Do those fins on ram modules actually do anything or they are there just for the looks?

    If you're not going for extreme RAM OCing, RAM heatsinks and waterblocks are useless.

    A Bad DayIf you're not going for extreme RAM OCing, RAM heatsinks and waterblocks are useless.usually yes they are just for looks but for these they might actually put off enough heat to warrant having a heat spreader on the RAM sticks as they go almost twice the entry speeds of the first Sandy bridge RAM memory controller speeds ( they were later increased to higher DDR3 speeds ). What i am also wondering is in the spec for Ivy bridge it had 2 memory controllers one for DDR3 and one for XDR so where is our XDR RAM motherboards or was that memory controller dropped in the final design of Ivy bridge?

    The Trident RAM has 5 tines on top of the heatsync...

    Things that make you go Hmmmmmm

  • and, it could boost performance by nearly 1% in certain synthetic benchmarks, but if you're building a big gaming rig in an attempt to compensate for a small male-part, that may not matter to you.

    Why are all these memory kits at 1.65v when the voltage limit for both SB and IB is only 1.5v???
