Taipei, Taiwan – 18 September 2013 – No limit is too high for G.SKILL memory. In just a week after the official release of the new Intel Ivy Bridge-E Core i7 Extreme processors, G.SKILL memory is already testing the extreme limits of the Intel processors and broke the world record for fastest DDR3 yet again. This time a 16GB (4x4GB) G.SKILL TridentX memory kit is overclocked to a blistering DD3 4072MHz - the first instance of a quad-channel DDR3 memory kit to break the 4GHz barrier!

Did I miss how much these sticks are going to cost?

I don't want to sell a kidney just for RAM.

They cost $739.99

insanely overpriced and likely very little performance improvement for todays tasks compared to ddr3 1600 or 1866.

For that money you are better off buying some DDR3 1600 and using the rest to get a GTX 780 and a liquid cooler for your CPU and overclocking the GPU and the rest of the system.
