G.Skill RipjawsZ DDR3-2133 16GB Quad Channel Memory Kit Review

With Intel’s X79 chipset we started to see quad channel DDR3 memory.  It is crazy to think that in just a short period of time we have gone from dual channel to quad channel memory.  Not long after Intel released the X79 platform we started to see quad channel kits designed and certified specifically for the platform.  Today we are taking a look at one such kit, the G.Skill RipjawsZ DDR3-2133 16GB quad channel kit (F3-17000CL9Q-16GBZH).   This kit features four 4GB modules that run at 2133MHz with timings of 9-11-10-28.  Read on as we take a look at our first quad channel memory kit.

Special thanks to G.Skill for providing us with the RipjawsZ DDR3-2133 16GB Quad Channel Memory Kit to review.
