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 eggsSo freakin good, I ordered another 2 sticks!

Pros: I'm going to make this review as quick and to the point as possible. Fast, stable, and worth every penny. Memory doesn't hesitate to give me what my system demands. I originally had 16gb, and ordered 16gb more just to max out the 32gb my mobo can handle. Gaming rig complete!

1 out of 5 eggsDead after 2 months

Pros: Fast when it is healthy.

Cons: After 2 months of normal usage, they are dead !

The result was tested by memTest and Windows diagnosis tools.

Dear Customer

We will be glad to help with this issue. Test one module at a time to see if a stick performs differently. If so, send them in for RMA exchange and a new kit should work much better. Once you receive the replacement, make sure to enable XMP/DOCP, or manually configure settings in BIOS/EFI. This is not a plug and play memory kit so most motherboards can not automatically recognize the RAM correctly. With the proper settings input, then the memory will work fast and reliable in your computer. This is a high performance, high capacity memory kit that will last a long time if used appropriately. For any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsLove this Ram

Pros: I really love this ram. Nice and stable. Has really good timings. Looks really sexy with an open window case. Color scheme goes perfectly with my z87 Asus Maximus VI. Love the black and red a lot. So used to seeing computer cases do the traditional blue color scheme. At the time of this review I now have 2 of these sets for 32 GB of Ram. I am really really Happy.

Cons: no problems.

Other Thoughts: I used to buy my memory from another company and they were fine but eventually those memory sticks died out. but ever since I built a pc for my step dad like years back and went with Gskill. The sets have been solid on his pc for years now. I decided when I was gonna go for my next build Gskill was the answer. I wasn't wrong this memory really performs.
I went for a mini but power full system.

3 out of 5 eggsNice ram but wished they worked

Pros: Great ram when it works. The CAS latency and timings is the lowest I've seen. Nice removable fins if it don't fit with your cooler.

Cons: The ram that I got is defective. Memtest86+ shows no errors but after booting and playing a game, watching streams/videos or just prime95 for 30 min. to 1 hour, it blue screens. From memory_management to driver_irql_not_less_or_equal BSOD. Also speed defaults to 1333Mhz instead of 1600Mhz. It is advertised as stock 1600, I shouldn't have to change XMP or tweak any other settings to get 1600.

Other Thoughts: I went and reinstalled Windows 7 to see if it was just corrupt drivers. Also put bios settings to default. Was okay so far until I put the memory to work by playing a game or prime95 then BSOD.
Went back to my 8gb Gskill Ares 1600Mhz and no more blue screens. Going to have to RMA these sticks and get another. I don't think I'll go for the same series which is Trident X. I'll order another Gskill again but probably play it safe and get higher timings.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer

We will be glad to help you with this. This is not standard RAM, it is absolutely necessary to enable XMP Profile. The frequency is DDR3-1600, but the timings are CL7, not CL11. Anything better than DDR3-1600 CL11 you must manually input or enable the XMP Profile in BIOS/EFI. Once you do this, the RAM can run at full speed. Memtest86+ proved the memory is error free, all you need to do is configure settings properly and the system will run flawlessly. Prime95 fails because the motherboard is not sure how to use the RAM. If you have any questions or need help, please don't hesitate to contact the G.Skill support team directly. They can make sure the RAM is running fast and stable in your computer.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsGreat RAM! Great Price!

Pros: Looks killer
High quality
No issues installing
Low latency
High Speed

Cons: No Cons

Other Thoughts: If you are in this price range looking for 16gigs of ddr3 this is what you want. The red looks awesome if you have a red themed build like I do. You don't have to mess with it at all to get it to work its just plug and play.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fast, cheapest price for cas 7, lifetime warranty, easy ram process, looks cool.

Cons: At 1.5v my system would not cold boot ( boot after being off for more than an hour). I had to up the voltage to 1.56v to make it 100% stable. I'm not going to return it at this time unless it starts to need more voltage. So minus 1 star because I think this problem should have been caught at the factory.

Other Thoughts: According to g.skill, the memory can safely handle up to 1.65v so you can feel free to up the volts and the speed as much as you need. The rma exchange process works well, I used it once before with my ddr2 ram

Dear Customer

Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. Glad to hear you think the memory looks cool and it is working fast in your system. The G.Skill Trident X series are the best memory kits on the market. Each set is hand picked, tested, and guaranteed to operate at the rated specifications. For some motherboards, the set voltage and actual supplied voltage can slighty vary, so it is fine to set the DRAM Voltage a notch higher for stabilty. As long as the system is stable, you should have no problems at all. Even if you do experience a problem with the RAM, you are backed by a manufacturer lifetime warranty so we can send you new replacements right away. For any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly.

Thank you
