G.Skill Trident X 2400MHz 32GB Kit
DDR3 has long been an area where any improvements come slowly. The pattern is usually that we see an increase in the overall speed of the kit, then later on an advancement in capacity, before we finally have a setup that takes the best of both worlds and then we move on to the next round.
It was only very recently that the first memory modules to pass the 2133MHz barrier were introduced. Indeed we took a look at the 2400MHz, 8GB version of the G.Skill TridentX just a couple of months ago. So imagine our surprise when an extremely beefy package arrived at our offices containing a 2400MHz kit with a whopping 32GB capacity.
8GB density DIMMs at 2400MHz! This is definitely something we have to take a look at.
|Designed for||3rd Generation Intel Core Processors|
|Type||Dual Channel DDR3 Kit|
|Rated Speed||DDR3-2400MHz (PC3-19200)|
Boasting the same excellent TridentX heatspreader we've previously looked at, the G.Skill kit is both gorgeous and practical. The extra red fin portion is removable which allows it to fit under any heatsink you can think of, something which comes in handy with our beefy Silver Arrow covering the first slot.
The weight difference between the 8GB sticks and the 4GB ones is substantial. There is plenty of heft to the TridentX at this capacity.
