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 clocked 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 excellent value in price and performance.
