G.Skill Sniper 1866 MHz DDR3 Memory Kit
Featured Reviews: Memory

RAM is one of the basic building blocks of a computer system, and although the technology has changed over the years the same basic idea of quick temporary storage has been RAM's main purpose since its inception. Gamers have always wanted the fastest speeds possible but unfortunately that meant that many of the fastest kits were very expensive. Since the introduction of DDR3 prices have plummeted and speeds have skyrocketed and a good set of 2 x 4GB RAM can be had for under $150. G.Skill understands this and has SKU's designed for every price range. G.Skill's most recent addition is its Sniper series of which we will be looking at the 1866 MHz F3-14900CL9D-8GBSR kit which is well priced $104.99 providing users above average speeds with relatively tight 9-10-9-28 timings. Benchmark Reviews will determine if this RAM is worth its price or if users are better off getting slower, less expensive SKU's.

8GB G.Skill Ripjaws 2000MHz DDR3 Memory Kit
Featured Reviews: Memory

The maximum speed officially supported by an Intel Core i3/i5 CPU is 1333MHz, and most will know too well that that even lower priced Intel H55/P55 Motherboards can support a 200 BCLK. If you like to dabble in the dark art of overclocking there are a few good reasons to choose a 2000MHz (PC3-16000) RAM kit. Firstly you have the options of lower voltage and tighter timings at lower speeds, and next you have the added benefit of higher memory bandwidth at the top speed. Last but not least though is the overclocking headroom, sure you could try to push your 1600MHz kit to 2000MHz but there are not too many kits that will do that, and you will certainly have to pay a premium. G.Skill have a broad range of DDR3 RAM from basic to extreme, today Benchmark Reviews will be testing the G.Skill Ripjaws 2000MHz CL9 Dual Channel 1.55v 8GB Kit (PN: F3-16000CL9D-8GBRM) priced at $209.99 for your reading pleasure.

2500MHz Patriot Viper-II Sector-5 DDR3 Kit
Featured Reviews: Memory

As if 2133MHz were not enough for a high-performance kit, there are some brands pushing the limits to the max in the memory section. Just about 6 months ago, some brands released 2200MHz kits, followed by 2400MHz and finally 2500MHz kits specially targeted at high-end enthusiasts and overclockers. The kit we are reviewing today is one of the fastest kits available in the market, and the fastest kit ever tested at Benchmark Reviews. The Patriot Viper II 'Sector 5' Edition is a 2500MHz 4GB kit, running with high binned ICs, and according to Patriot's homepage, this kit works with LGA 1156 Core i7 CPUs and possibly nothing else at the moment of writing this revision. Join Benchmark Reviews in a trip to discover how far we can push this kit, and analyze system's performance with extremely high frequencies.

G.SKILL 2133MHz DDR3 Pi-Series Memory Kit
Featured Reviews: Memory

Although the memory controller built into Intel's Socket 1156 processors only supports DDR3-1333 speeds officially, any enthusiast knows that there's more than a bit of overclocking headroom there. DDR3-1600 memory is increasingly common, and recently a number of memory vendors have upped the ante even more, with DDR3-2000 and higher speeds becoming available. G.SKILL has entered the enthusiast memory market with a broad selection of high-speed and low-latency memory kits, and Benchmark Reviews tests their new DDR3-2133 memory kit (F3-17066CL7D-4GBPIS) to see what kind of performance benefits it will yield when overclocked.

Crucial Ballistix BL2KIT25664FN1608 Memory Kit
Featured Reviews: Memory

"Ask any PC enthusiast and they'll tell you that system heat is a constant concern", said Crucial Ballistix senior product manager, Jeremy Mortenson. The new Crucial Ballistix kit comes with a pair of innovations in memory cooling. The first one is an improved heat spreader design compared to the old models. This isn't such a big innovation in the memory market but the second will be an interesting one for sure. Crucial added thermal sensors for temperature monitoring via software. Since we're PC enthusiasts at Benchmark Reviews, the BL2KIT25664FN160 kit from Crucial couldn't miss our benchmark's suite and tests. Join us in this article to watch out what this new Crucial Ballistix Kit has to offer.

G.Skill ECO 4GB DDR3 Memory Kit F310666CL7D
Featured Reviews: Memory

In the industry of technology, brands offering similar products without innovating will not be easily adopted by the enthusiast market. If we talk about memory, then the mayor factors are frequency, latency and of course... price. Intel specifications for Core i3/i5/i7 products recommend using a maximum DRAM voltage of 1.65v. While most brands try to fit on Intel´s limits on the high side, G.Skill is trying something different. The G.Skill ECO F3 10666CL7D 4GB Dual Channel Kit is intended to run at 1333MHz with barely 1.35 volts benefiting both high-end enthusiasts who want better Overclocks and lower temps, or simply those who want to build an HTPC an every shaved watt can be the difference. Benchmark Reviews will test the G.Skill ECO kit to check if this kind of memory is able to do that difference (considering that frequency and latency are not a major factor on Intel chipsets anymore).

12GB Crucial DDR3 Memory Kit CT3KIT51264BA1339
Featured Reviews: Memory

It's always better to have and not need, than to need and not have. This Golden Rule applies to computer system memory as much as the other aspects in life, and having more RAM than your PC needs can only help matters. Multimedia editors require large amounts of memory to keep their encoding tasks moving at top-speed, otherwise the PC's much slower storage drive is called into play. Crucial offers the power-user a guaranteed boost to system performance, with their triple-channel 12GB DDR3 memory kit. The Crucial CT3KIT51264BA1339 UDIMM kit consists of three 4GB DDR3 modules rated for 1333MHz CL9-9-9-25-1 each. In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests the high-density RAM kit against memory big and small, fast and slow.
