G.Skill Trident 6GB PC3-16000 DDR3 Memory Kit Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
Hardware Canucks have posted a review of the G.Skill Trident F3-16000CL9T-6GBTD, a triple-channel 6GB PC3-16000 9-9-9-24 memory kit with a low 1.65V default voltage.
Here's what they had to say:
"Now keep in mind that PC3-16000 modules aren't for everybody. They are for enthusiast users who enjoy overclocking, messing around with system settings and who want to be able to push their systems to the max without having to worry about their memory holding them back. As we have explained a few times throughout this article, not every processor can even run at such high memory clocks. So what if your particular processor can't handle the DDR3-2000 9-9-9 memory frequency? No big loss. With this model you can simply downclock the memory frequency a bit and make use of the Trident's impressive timings flexibility. Frankly, unless you are attempting to break some benchmarking world records, we can't think of any reason why you would need to spend more for an enthusiast-oriented memory kit than this G.Skill Trident model. Simply speaking, there is currently nothing in this price range that comes close and we can wholeheartedly recommend this product."
If you're an enthusiast user, and you enjoy overclocking without breaking the bank, this is frankly the only kit that you should consider.
