Features

Removable Heat Spreader Fin

The G.SKILL TridentX series features a removable heat spreader fin to improve your cooling options. With the heat spreader fin, the increased surface area keeps the memory cooler. Alternatively, with a system that already has a sufficient cooling solution, the fins can be removed to accommodate massive CPU coolers or other customized cooling solutions.

If you follow my posts on the forums, you'll find that I consider myself one of Corsair's biggest fans, but those feelings were thrown completely out of whack when I received this kit from G.Skill. The G.Skill F3-2666C11Q-16GTXD kit managed to completely amaze me with its quality and clocking ability, and I fell in love after checking its price. You cannot find a 4 x 4GB 2666MHz kit for less right now unless it's been put on sale. This kit manages to overcome any performance deficiencies with flexibility and great overhead. At stock, I managed to beat out my trusty Corsair Dominator Platinum kit with a little bit of tweaking. Overclocked, the G.Skill F3-2666C11Q-16GTXD kit managed to go just as high without a boost in voltage. That is just outright fantastic.

G. Skill's 2400 MHz Trident X kit put on an impressive display of performance, easily overcoming the competition in all but four of the benchmarks used. Unfortunately, the memory was bottlenecked by the processor -- limiting the overclock to a 104 bclk and leaving us with a final overclock of 2218MHz and timings of 10-12-12-31 2T. Paired with a 3rd generation Intel processor, G. Skill's 2400 MHz Trident X kit would have benefited greatly from the increased bandwidth and has the potential to hit 2500MHz with some fine tuning.

Gold Award at OverClockersClub

Gold Award at OverClockersClub

G.Skill's Trident X line-up comes with kits that range from the 2400MHz kit we are looking at to a 2800MHz kit for massive memory speeds and the associated bandwidth that is a hallmark of higher speed bins. It seems that G.Skill is most definitely targeting the budget overclocker with this set of Trident X modules. A $99 price tag for 2400MHz-rated modules is a welcome sight after seeing huge price tags just a few months back for cas8 and 9 modules binned above 2133MHz. The Trident X are modules that perform well and deliver some overhead for a little bit more tweaking and come with G.Skill's lifetime warranty. Excellent looks aside, the Trident X would make a good addition to any system and have the flexibility to be cooled in multiple ways.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Memory

Pros: Runs stable at rated speed and timings on ASRock Z75. Runs stable at command rate 1.

Upgrading from 8gb RipJaws 2133 CL 12..

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Not waiting for DDR4, doesn't look like its much of an upgrade from DDR3 in the benchmarks that are even possible considering there aren't any boards yet released that can use both.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing!

Pros: These work perfectly for my needs. I use very demanding applications like Adobe After Effects, Sony Vegas, and frequently have a combination of editing programs open at once. I also occasionally play RAM hungry games (on ultra settings with over 1k mods for some of them).

These beauties handle all of the above without a hitch.

Cons: This has nothing to do with the RAM, really, but it would be nice if the screws for the fins weren't so tiny. I have a beast of a HSF and there was no way I could use them, which is a real shame because they are aesthetically pleasing.

It was fairly easy to remove them, but I do have small hands.

Other Thoughts: I have an Asus Sabertooth 990FX motherboard, so I had to clock these at 18 instead of 24 in the UEFI.

Here's some extra info in case anyone was curious.

Here are my idle timings using CPU-Z:
NB Frequency 1806.2 MHz
668.9 MHz
FSB:DRAM: 3:10
9-9-9-24.

With only some minor applications running (like a messenger or music program) and 6-7 browser tabs up, only 20-30% of the RAM is being used for me.

2 out of 5 eggsRemovable fin not so removable

Pros: They look great.

Cons: One of the main reasons I bought this memory(in addition to performance) was because of the removable fin/heat spreader. I knew that I was building with a big air cooler and needed additional clearance for my RAM. The removable fins should allow me the clearance I need.

To remove the fin you have to remove a microscopic screw. I have the correct size screwdriver. But on both sticks the screw were overtorqued and would not budge. I eventually got 1 of the screws out on 1 of the sticks and managed to slide the fin off. But on the other stick the screws are stripping. I've tried multiple precision screw drivers and cannot get them to turn the screws without further stripping them. So now 1 of the sticks has the fin stuck on. Which means I can't mount my cooler. Which means my build is completely stopped in now.

This is a terrible design. Why screws? So unnecessary.

If you're going with a big air cooler you might want to look for RAM with either lower clearance or RAM with a spreader that is easily removed.

My build is stuck. I either have to return this RAM or try another cooler. I'd rather the RAM just do what it's advertised to do.

Other Thoughts: Maybe I just got unlucky. But there's no reason for screws. Even if you have them, there's no reason for them to be tightened to the extreme.

It's unfortunate that I'm not reviewing the actual performance of the memory which is what I'd rather be doing. If you don't need to remove the fins they're probably as good as advertised. If you do need to remove the fins, you might get unlucky like me and have your build halted.

Dear Customer

Glad to hear you think the memory looks great. The Trident X series is top of the line RAM so you get nothing less than the best. The red fins can be easily removed with the correct tool. It is a #1 x 25mm Phillips screwdriver. It may seem like a typical household Phillips can be jammed in to work, but that is the easiest way to strip the screws. With the proper fitting screwdriver, the screw can be removed smoothly no matter how tight it's on. If you would like, you can send the RAM to us and we can remove them for you free of charge. If the screws are damaged, we will be glad to send you new ones in case you need them in the future. For any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly.

Thank you

1 out of 5 eggsBad RAM, Still Trust G.Skill

Pros: Looks nice. Packaging easy to open. And, although this RAM didn't work out for me, I do trust the G.Skill brand.

Cons: A new computer build can be tricky when you get certain errors. It started while downloading WIndows Update items after my OS install. Everyone with Windows knows can be lots of updates all at once. Sometimes they don't play well together, some fail temporarily while others succeed, etc.

Anyway - I got BSOD. It didn't bug me too much because I knew I was at the start and needed to ensure all appropriate updates were installed.

After the updates and drivers I began installing applications. During the install there's various normal "dings" and other sounds. One of the "dings" started sounding like a machine gun as it repeated it's ding-i-ness for about 5 seconds.

My attention was now elevated.

Things kept going fine afterwards. Played some games. Left my computer on overnight. It had shut down by the next morning. Left it on again the next night. Keep in mind that I could still use the computer for every normal function during all this. Next morning the computer was frozen, mouse wouldn't move, and the Windows date\time was frozen (it was 8AM but the OS said it was 4AM).

Time to use a RAM tester.

I began a RAM diagnostic booting from USB. I won't name the program. Although it was free there is a paid version and I don't want to come off as a sales pitch.

The test was setup to perform 4 "passes" (think "check again") on my RAM. Each pass was about 13 RAM tests. Each pass normally takes about an hour+.

Just at the end of the first pass the memory diagnostic began identifying errors with the RAM. Once you find even one error there's not much need to keep going. This is new RAM. I shouldn't have errors.

Other Thoughts: Since I could still utilize my PC, I ordered new RAM. I ordered from G.Skill. Like I said, I trust the brand. Things go wrong in every piece of electronics. It is a certainty. And, bonus, I got better quality RAM for cheaper (voltage, timing). It was on sale.

My new RAM should show up this week. Once I confirm all is well I'll return the old busted RAM through Newegg's return process.

Still gotta give the RAM a 1-Egg rating though. A customer's order has to come through working at 100%. I may trust G.Skill with future orders, but that doesn't buy any favors for a glowing review when it doesn't work nominally.

Dear Customer

We will be glad to help with this issue. This is an extreme performance memory kit, so make sure the motherboard is compatible and the CPU is capable. For DDR3-2400, it is necessary to enable XMP or manually configure settings in BIOS/EFI. Without the proper set up, the system can be unstable and the memory may seem defective. To determine whether a module is defective, test one stick at a time to see if one performs differently. Should you continue to have problems with the new RAM, please contact the G.Skill support team with hardware specifications and they will make sure your computer is operating at maximum performance. With 16GB of DDR3-2400, the system will be capable of anything you put it to.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsFlawless

Pros: I've always used G.Skill as I've never had any issues with them ever. The memory always performs as it should and like normal they find a way to make their products stand out look wise.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Not a con because you pay for a name you trust but still the memory could be a bit cheaper.

1 out of 5 eggsThey look good, but...

Pros: Look real good and are made by G.Skill

Cons: DOA...had to but box store replacements to finish my build.

Other Thoughts: Newegg took them back without any static...thanks for that.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer

Glad to hear you like the appearance of the Trident X series RAM. This is the top of the line DDR3 memory on the market. It is unlikely for the modules to be DOA, test one stick at a time to see if you are able to get the system to boot properly. If neither stick can boot up, it may be a defective motherboard. There are two memory modules and it is near impossible for both sticks to be completely dead. All G.Skill memory kits are thoroughly tested through the most rigorous testing standards to ensure quality second to none. A defective memory module will never come direct from G.Skill factory. In the future, let us know if you have any problems or questions and we will be glad to help.
