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 eggsIt's Ram.

Pros: Worked right out of the package. 2133 speed, not hard at all to activate in XMP. Dual channel 16g is nice. May look for another two sticks in the future.

Cons: They only came in red. I wish they came in white, but that's nothing to dock an egg for.

Other Thoughts: I wish these came in white..

5 out of 5 eggsTridentX

Pros: FAST, runs cool, looks great on my black/red board. 2133 memory for only about $5 more than 1600, and faster timings?

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: G-Skill seems to have fast, dependable memory at decent prices.

5 out of 5 eggsreview

Pros: Looks nice, easy setup, it's fast, doesn't require a number of tweaks like 2400mhz ram and runs at 1.57v if set in bios (actually my bios says it runs at around 1.51v but I set the limit to 1.57.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Some people say you don't see real world difference between cl9 1600 and cl9 2133, I beg to differ my setup is pretty solid and now my PC in general feels snappier, high res images and video load faster as well.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat ram

Pros: works great

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: i see people complaining all the time about it not running at the correct speed. by default it runs at 1333 mhz it has the ability to run at 2133 mhz if you want you just need to enable xmp in bios or just manually set the speed to what ever you want it to run at in bios. in my bios i can set this ram to run at almost any speed i want 1333,1600,1866 or 2133 or maybe faster but i wouldn't recommend faster

5 out of 5 eggsFast RAM for the price

Pros: Ran Passmark benchmark - returned score of 2973 - much higher than other DDR3-2133 RAM. Manually set SPD info 9-11-11-31 on Mobo. Mobo detected this a DDR3-1333 or similarly slow even though SPD was 2133. Once set manually, performance was very good.

Cons: None yet

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Ram

Pros: Very fast ram, especially running at 1.6V. Great value for such performance.
Red is the color du jour, and the red heatsink tops on this one makes a presence in my case.
Heatsink top is removable if you need clearance, Clarence.
For my latest board (ASRock 990FX Exteme 9), XMP 1.2 and 1.3 work and test stable using OCCT & Prime95.
You can use the heatsink as weapon if everyone loses power and we go back to the dark ages.

Cons: It didn't work at anywhere near advertised speeds in my previous board: Gigabyte 990FXA-UD5 rev 3.0. Not only would XMP not work, but I couldn't manually get it close either. Best I could get was somewhere around an 8-9-9 at 1600 (not horrible, but...)

Other Thoughts: Though it certainly should have worked on the Gigabyte board, I'm not holding the performance on the Gigabyte board against this ram. I couldn't get another set of Ram to work on it at advertised speeds either. Didn't really like going above 1600 MHz.

5 out of 5 eggsTHE BEST QUALITY RAM!!!

Pros: The first set did not pass Memtest86..it does happen with every compagny. I don't take one egg down for that. After RMA the second was perfect. NEWEGG made it simple and easy, that is why I buy here.Best quality, best performance, tight timing...TRIDENT is THE RAM, Thanks G SKILL!

Cons: The price of RAM and all of them is too high, it lack competition pricing not to say that it is f.....

Other Thoughts: LIFETIME warranty at this price is a must!
