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 ram

Pros: works great

Cons: not a con of the product itself ,but make sure your motherboard has adjustable ram setting in the bios or it wont run at the advertised speeds
.my stock ram was 1600mhz cas11 and this ran it 1333mhz cas9 which actually appeared to test the exact same in benchmarks so take what you will from that.

Other Thoughts: great ram i enjoyed it

3 out of 5 eggsDoes not have SPD 1600 as advertised

Pros: Decent memory for machines that have overclocking. Maxes out at around 1866MHz on an AM3+ board.

Cons: G.Skill confirms that this ram only runs JEDEC 667MHz profile contrary to the "detail" info on their own website claiming that it is SPD 1600MHz.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking to pop this into your HP or Dell desktop and have it running auto SPD 1600MHz, you're outta luck! I went full circle with G.Skill on mis-advertised SPD speed on their website. At first, they assured me it was supposed to run auto SPD 1600MHz at the advertised 7-8-8-24 timings. Once tech got their hands on my RMA, they realized they made a mistake, and instead of owning up, tossed me some bull about how the latest batch of ram they received was only 1333MHz, and they couldn't exchange it for something else that also advertised SPD1600MHz because it came in the same batch...what a crock! Let's just say it took a formal complaint through Business Consumer Alliance to get them to offer the exchange, but by that time I had already returned the ram for a refund. Check this out...go to G.Skill's website and look at the detail tab for this ram...notice it's STILL listed as SPD 1600MHz!!

Manufacturer Response:

.
Dear Customer

We will be glad to help with this issue. For pre-built computers like Dell or HP, it is best to use the exact specifications supported by the motherboard and CPU. The G.Skill Trident X series is designed for aftermarket motherboards and custom build users that onyl require SPD profile to boot up. For plug and play DDR3-1600 performance, the ideal memory kit is the G.Skill F3-1600C11D-16GNT. This model is designed for HP and Dell computers to run at full speed. Should you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly.

Thank you
GSKILL SUPPORT

Quality and customer service are our top priorities.

5 out of 5 eggsX58 Chipset, 1366 CPU, and 48GB RAM Triple Channel, and OC

Pros: For those who are wondering, YES!!! This RAM is successfully running on an X58 Chipset with Socket 1366 CPU. My rig is an EVGA Motherboard Model: 132-BL-E758-A1 that I recently had EVGA perform the “Westmere Modification” on so I can now run an X5690 HexCore Xeon CPU. I took a gamble on whether or not these 8GB Sticks would work in this Rig, but it paid off and I couldn’t be happier! I’ve got them clocked at ~1400Mhz right now with the default XMP 1.2 Profile of 7-8-7-24 (oddly was supposed to be 7-8-8-24, but so much the better). I should mention that ~1400 Mhz is the most I’ve EVER been able to get out of ANY RAM I’ve ever put in this MB, so clocking it this high is probably the best I’ll get with these as well – hence my purchasing the lower latency sticks as opposed to the high Mhz versions of this RAM. Of course, your mileage may vary given your CPU’s built-in Memory Controller, your MB and your choice of RAM.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: I also need to mention that I made the hesitated mistake of not resetting my BIOS before adding these sticks, which caused it to come up in only Dual Channel mode instead of Triple Channel and only reported 32GB vs 48GB that was present, as well as 1.65v instead of 1.5v. Instead of resetting the BIOS (which would have been the easiest path to fix this) I chose to turn off any and all OverClocking in my BIOS and set everything to “Auto”, which then gave me Triple Channel (reported thru CPU-Z) but still only 32GB reported in Win7 x64. Okay, is there a bad Stick or two??? NOPE! Tested each stick (and each slot) individually, verifying the Auto detected settings (volts and timings, etc) in the BIOS and finally got the MB to report each Stick properly. Then I added all the sticks and verified everything was still detected correctly, and then for S&G’s I turned on Dummy OC (for now) and everything is still working perfectly. Been stress testing with AIDA for almost 24hrs and no problems. Also, Crysis 1, 2 and 3 (which are extremely Memory sensitive) all play smooth and without crashing! Me’za Likey!!! =) G. Skill is AWESOME RAM!!!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Solid build, no errors. (4x 8GB). Unfortunately, on my rig, CL8 is as fast as it wants to run :(

Cons: Will not run at CL7 Gigabyte z68-ud7 with i7-2600k. In fact, even the posted CPU-Z SPD does not match the manufacturer spec. G.Skill support appears stumped and has no solution. Same SPD shows XMP profile1 & 2 as the same...G.Skill support also stumped on that one. Then again, one of them asked me what dimm slots I was using? Really, it's a 32GB KIT on a z68 board! Maybe this explains why they're so easily stumped.

Other Thoughts: Your mileage may vary!

5 out of 5 eggsBack for more

Pros: I have another pair of these in a 3 years old computer, always performed flawlessly. Now that I'm building another computer I came back for more of the same.
High quality, high performance.

Cons: Motherboards seem to be unable to recognize them. I had to manually set the frequency and timing.

Other Thoughts: Once inside the computer you can forget about them. They just keep working, like the energizer bunny - or better.

5 out of 5 eggsVery good

Pros: It works great! It's a lot of memory! Reliability is fine

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This is probably more than I need. I run a game called Rift, simple video streaming and also a couple of penetration test virtual machines. I never have speed problems on my system.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat RAM

Pros: Ultra Stable, Not DOA, Cleared MEMtest86+, lots of headroom. I have them OC'ed to 2133 MHz at 9-11-11-24 and 1.6v not hit a snag yet been running like that for a month. I use these in a comp for video editing and have seen a pretty significant increase in performance so I have done a lot of endurance testing to make sure they stable at this clocking (it would be a bummer to blue screen mid encoding or render not happened so far) and had nothing but complete stability.

Cons: The only perceivable con is you have to set up an XMP profile to get the stock settings or higher but I am pretty sure no matter what DRAM set up you get at this performance level is going to take some tweaking so if you are uncomfortable with that sort of thing better go back to a lower market point.

Other Thoughts: Build:
OS: Windows 7 Pro 64 bit
CPU: i7 4770
MB: Asus Z97-A
RAM : G.Skill Trident X 16GB
