We recently looked at a kit of G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 2666MHz and they were screaming-good both in speed and overclocking, and had nice, tight timings as well. We went back to the G.SKILL well and pulled out a G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 3000MHz kit so we can get a direct comparison between 2666MHz and 3000MHz at the same timings! It’s not often that we get to review RAM with the same timings at different speeds, but we lucked out and have it for you to scope out. How much difference will we get with a 334MHz advantage on the faster G.SKILL Kit? Read on to find out.
G.SKILL’s history of providing screaming fast RAM at reasonable prices drives us to review another kit, and this kit has a retail price of $236.95 (at the time of writing) and runs at 3000MHz, so we could be looking at a monster value. Of course, G.SKILL’s sharp looking heat spreader and sense of style with three colors to choose from doesn’t hurt our feelings.
