G.Skill 2133 CL9 8GB has won the OCC Glod Award from Overclockersclub!
The G.Skill modules are the only ones that come with an added bonus in the Turbulence II cooling system. Not only does it prove functional at keeping your modules cool but it looks good when in operation. The G.Skill RipJawsX were easily the ones with the most flash when you compare the four sets of memory. The brilliant red coloring looked right at home in the Maximus IV Extreme motherboard. Running 8GB of memory at 2133MHz was just as easy it seems as running 4GB. If manually setting the modules up in the BIOS is not your cup of tea, the RipJaws X have XMP support so all you do is enable the XMP profile and you are good to go. When it came to overclocking these modules, I had expected to have some overhead to play with but in reality, this set of modules had the second lowest total overhead at 75MHz. Sure this gave me a speed over 2200MHz which is nothing to sneeze at but I am greedy and was hoping for more based on my past experiences with G.Skill. 2400MHz was not going to happen with this set when I tried boosting them up to the next multiplier.
