G.Skill Ripjaws 4 16GB 2666MHz (F4-2666C15Q-16GRR), Overclocking Ambrosia!

Final Thoughts & Conclusion

The G.Skill Ripjaws 4 is truly the overclocking ambrosia of the gods. Our kit overclocked easier than any other kit of DDR4 we’ve seen to date and it clocked higher than any other 2666MHz kit we’ve had our hands on. We Award_Silverclocked the $204.99 bargain priced kit all the way up to 3098MHz: an amazing 432MHz OC. Even at 3098MHz it was stable enough to play games and run benchmarks. Any 16GB kit that costs $204.99, runs at 2666MHz, and overclocks to 3098MHz is a kit we can easily recommend. Of all the 16GB DDR4 kits we have tested, the G.Skill Ripjaws 4 is the least expensive kit. We’ve seen G.Skill 32GB kits that cost as much as competitors’ 16GB kits, making G.Skill Ripjaws the bargain of the year on an all too expensive 2011-v3 platform.

The Bear Facts: The G.Skill Ripjaws 4 2666MHz kit represents a seldom seen bargain on the 2011-v3 platform, performs as well as more expensive competitors kits, and looks good in your system. We’d hate to pun but that’s one good-looking bargain kit kicking some serious butt.

Because of the exceptional value the G.Skill Ripjaws 4 2666MHz kit represents coming in at $206.99 (NewEgg), we are giving it an additional award, the Bjorn3D Best Bang For Buck Award, representing an excellentAward_Value value in price and performance.

The Steam Deck – Valve delivers an excellent PC handheld

Valve is an interesting company that seems to try to be a lot of things at the same time. Games company, software hub/store and hardware company. Valve is all of these. When it comes to hardware the company has had mixed success. I think many of us remember the Steam Machines. These compact computers running SteamOS, a Linux based OS, were supposed to make Windows PC’s obsolete for gaming. They didn’t succeed. Valve also released a specific controller, the Steam Controller, which also did not exactly set the world on fire. In hindsight though both these products have paved the way for the product I am testing today, the Steam Deck, Valves attempt to compete with the Nintendo Switch in the handheld market.
