Looking to build an X79 system? Maybe G.Skill has the right stuff for your DIMM slots

The arrival of the X79 chipset and quad-channel memory support has made a lot of memory manufacturers very happy.  Over the past year the DDR3 market has been a little slow with very little performance difference between vendors and for that matter memory frequency.  That has left companies struggling to stand out in the crowd and attract buyers to their products.  Now most companies have switched into high gear and are producing new quad-channel kits with some fairly impressive speeds.  Take the G.Skill Ripjaws Z 2133Mhz kit that Bjorn3D just reviewed, sporting timings of 9-11-10-28 @ 1T.  The benchmarking software they used just loved the kit as did the reviewer, who voiced only one concern about the possibility of the height of the DIMMs interfering with a large LGA2011 heatsink.

"Today we have in our hands one of G.SKILL's newest lines in the Ripjaws series: the Ripjaws Z which are designed for the quad channel memory controller in the newly released Intel X79 based boards. This kit is not their top model in terms of performance, but boasting a frequency of 2133 with a CAS latency of 9 is in no terms bad either. These are more of the upper high end for a 16GB kit, as G.SKILL does offer some models with slightly better timings or higher speeds, but those also can be much more expensive."
