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 eggsBlazing Fast

Pros: I was looking for RAM that would be fast. I considered a lot of things, and decided to go with this set. You get what you pay for. I am very pleased with my purchase.

-Durable
-Was easy to install, just push into mobo, and good to go.
-I had to configure it to 2133, but no biggie; just mobo defaulted for stability while I was setting up.
-They are very well made, and I didn’t feel like I would break them just by picking them up.
-I find them to be very aesthetically pleasing.
-The performance is outstanding for me, and I want to buy another set just because.

Cons: There's nothing negative for me to say.

Dear Customer

Glad to hear you like the design of the RAM. The G.Skill Trident X series is the best memory available on the market, which along with the looks is the reason why it is extremely popular. With a capable CPU, you should have no problem reaching DDR3-2133. Contact the G.Skill support team with hardware specifications and they will make sure the RAM is working fast and stable in your computer. This is a high speed, high capacity memory kit so you will be extremely pleased with the performance.

Thank you

1 out of 5 eggsFrequent System Freezes

Pros: Purchased in December and worked great for a couple months.

Cons: Now the system locks after 10-20 minutes. Freezes not related to what I'm doing and even locks sitting at the Windows Login screen. Worked with Asus (motherboard manufactuer) to determine it is indeed a memory issue.

Tried replacing the memory for a couple days with another brand and the system was rock solid. I am outside of the RMA window but hopefully the memory can be replaced on Warranty.

Pros: Had no issues getting it to work at rated speeds via XMP. Plugged it in and it worked. Fast. Can't ask for much more than that.

Cons: None. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this product.

5 out of 5 eggsNice choice

Pros: Sleek design, fast speed, and reasonably priced. For those of you who own a ASRock Extreme6 motherboard, let me put your concerns to rest: It works great with it.

Cons: None to date

Other Thoughts: I have come to trust this brand. I owned (OC) memory before from G Skill and have not had any issues with ANY of the products I have purchased. Since I haven't had any issues, I cannot speak of customer service, RMA process, etc. This particular time, I got a great deal applying a promo code to an already reduced price.

5 out of 5 eggsFor AMD builders! PLEASE READ!

Pros: The advertised speed of 2133Mhz cas9 @ 1.6v on an AMD system WILL require overclocking. XMS profiles aren't support by AMD directly nor is the 2133Mhz a normal clock rate.

AM3/AM3+ socket only supports 1866Mhz "overclock" the factory AM3/AM3+ CPU memory controller in the CPU die only supports 1333/1600Mhz, so even 1866mhz is overclocking the memory controller via BIOS override.

This doesn't memory this memory isn't for you. BUT...
If you have the proper cooling and knowledge to fine tune your CPU/MEMORY controller than this will work for you.

I personally would recommend finding a low cas8 1866MHz kit from Gskill if your planning on an AMD build. The Newegg and GSkill part number is below.

I can only recommend this kit for motherboards of socket 1155 Kits, Such as the P67, Z68 and Z77 chipsets.

The part numbers below will save a lot of AMD customers and newegg RMA department time.

5 out of 5 eggsFinal grade

Pros: got these to run CAS 8-11-11-19-29-1T @2133mhz with other timings and delays cinched down and these babies run faster, smoother, than my previous setup(2x4) micro stuttering in some high end games has gone down as well. I left my volts set @ 1.795mv to attain stability with these tight times, but not even luke warm, temp-wise!

Cons: patience is a must, at least with an AMD FX cpu

Other Thoughts: Patience and ability to go through ALL dram timings and drive clocks individually, to attain best results, and not being afraid of voltage bumping

4 out of 5 eggsfinal update

Pros: STILL looks great! Now have final stable run at rated spd w/timings of 9-12-12-28-34-1t got rid of some stuttering in games

Cons: had to set volts @1.8, had to really dig into advanced mem clock settings for drive strength, etc. a lot to reconfigure, AND my bios got corrupted , had to reinstall and now is running smoothly with AMD FX proc

Other Thoughts: I realize the XMP profile is for Intel mobos, but it shouldn't be so much trouble, and cause so many initial problems, G Skill should really update their voltage profiles to include AMD settings, just saying

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer

Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. Glad to hear you were able to get the memory working stable in your AMD system. It is strange you had to go through so many different settings. In addition to the basic memory settings (DRAM Frequency, timings, and voltage), raising the CPU-NB Voltage should allow the CPU memory controller to stabilize the RAM. The issue is not with the performance profile or RAM, it is with the CPU being able to natively support DDR3-2133. For the latest platforms, Intel XMP 1.3 can automatically adjust memory controller voltage whereas DOCP/EOCP for AMD can not. As a result, the user needs to manually input settings in BIOS for AMD systems. Should you need any assistance with this, please feel free to contact us directly, or join the Official G.Skill Forum. There you can find tons of information including highly advanced users that have already achieved what you are attempting.

Thank you
