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.

4 out of 5 eggsGood modules, terrible heat spreader

Pros: -Excellent timings of 8-9-9-24 for 8GB DIMMs at a frequency of 1866MHz
-Removable fins
-1.6V instead of 1.65V

Cons: -Really ugly
-Heat spreader merely thermal taped to chips, extremely flimsy
-Decal on both sides of the heat spreader for added R-value
-Fins are sharp

Other Thoughts: One side of the heat spreader on one module got stuck in the package and separated from the module. This happened simply when removing the modules from the package to install them in my system. The modules are really tightly gripped in the package, so be very careful. Luckily I ordered two sets, and NewEgg took care of the defective one.

The two modules that I kept worked perfectly using the XMP profile in a GA-Z77X-UD5H, with i7 3770. Advertised timings and frequency, no tweaks needed. Prime95 Blend ran for over 72 hours, no errors, no warnings. That is what I'm talking about!

Lets face it....These modules aren't winning any beauty contest any time soon. Neither are any of the other G.Skill modules, which are across the board the absolute ugliest RAM modules in the industry. Thankfully the system has a solid aluminum side panel, so nobody will see them. However, ugly is one thing, but flimsy heat spreaders is an actual problem.

That being said, these are good modules. Furthermore, I simply could not find a better combination of frequency and timing in a module that would fit under a Noctua NH-D14. If I could have found modules that were comparable with a real, better quality heat spreader (like Mushkin), I would have spent the extra money if need be.

Hi Alex

Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. This is the best DDR3-1866 memory kit on the market so we are certain you will be very pleased with performance. With 16GB installed, the operating system can perform extremely fast and smooth. Whether the system is used for gaming, streaming, or multi-tasking, this RAM can handle it all. We are sorry to hear you do not like the appearance of the RAM. The heat spreader is solid metal, so it should not be flimsy in any way. If you feel a module is not assembled correctly, feel free to send it in for RMA exchange. Otherwise, the heat spreaders are attached to the chips with a thermal adhesive tape. This allows proper heat transfer to the heat sinks so they can quickly and efficiently disperse heat. With the Trident X series RAM, overclocking is feasible without worrying about memory temperature due to the design and quality. Should you have any further questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us directly.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsFastest RAM in category.

Pros: -Switch to Profile 2 for best performance.
-Plugged in and worked.
-Reasonably priced.
-Fast.

Cons: -The item was shipped in a bubble-wrap sleeve. I ordered using the $20 overnight, so the packaging could have been a little better. Small box, maybe. I was concerned that they could have been damaged in transit. Fortunately everything arrived fine and in working order.

Other Thoughts: -Absolutely would suggest these, they're the best on the market currently, and very affordable, but I don't approve of the shipping packaging.

3 out of 5 eggsHalf the pack DOA, therefore, half the eggs.

Pros: Easy to take out of the pack, easy to install

Cons: One of the included memories was DOA, which I noticed almost a year later, since I bought my mobo recently. Memories were preserved in the pack and not mishandled. Installation was done with an earth wire,

Hi Enrique

We will be glad to help with this issue. It is strange a module was not working properly, but don't worry, all G.Skill memory kits are backed by a manufacturer lifetime warranty. At any time you feel a module is not working flawlessly as advertised, send them in for RMA exchange and we can have new replacements out to you immediately. This is an extreme performance memory kit so we are certain you will be very pleased with a good working kit. Visit the G.Skill website for complete RMA procedure.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice ram

Pros: Very nice ram. Works great. It was easy and quick to install. This ram has some of the lowest timing I have seen. And it is sweet looking in the computer.

Cons: Should have done this along time ago

Other Thoughts: It's on the high side of price, but well worth it. I would buy this again

5 out of 5 eggsFastest ram out of all mhz.

Pros: I must say that this ram has no competitor. I did my research for about a week couple hours a day trying to figure out what ram I wanted. Read about benchmarks mhz speed CL speed. Finally! found what I was looking for. This ram has the BEST timings and mhz speed out of any other big name company I could find. Even small companies I could find.
There truly is no match with the CL timings and the speed of this ram. I even have a stable OC at 2000mhz without slowing the timings down and no adjustment to the voltages. I can only imagine what this ram is capable of.

Cons: If I had to think of one, it would probably be there are no other colors or styles at this mhz and timings.

Other Thoughts: If anyone can find a CL of 8-9-9-24 that can clock to 2000mhz without adjusting anything else, Please, let me know. This ram also comes with two xmp profiles. Profile 2 is the faster of the two it comes with. Seriously mhz isn't everything. the timings matter just as much, and this is the fastest I've found with hours of research done. It's worth the money by far.
