G.SKILL is no stranger to pushing the boundaries of capacity and performance with their memory kits, and at IDF 2016 they showed off some of their fastest and highest capacity memory kits available. At the show, G.SKILL demoed both the 128GB Trident Z DDR4-3333MHz CL14 kit as well as the 64GB Trident Z DDR4-333MHz CL13 kit which represent some of the highest capacity high performance DDR4 kits out on the market today.
While DDR4 3333MHz kits have been available for quite some time, they’ve been generally only available in lower capacities such as 16GB kits. However, thanks to the use of Samsung’s new high performance DDR4 8Gb DDR4 DRAM dies, G.SKILL [...]
G.Skill has updated its high-end lineup of Trident Z DDR4 memory to include a variety of new color options to better suit themed builds. The new modules will not introduce any additional speed tiers compared to the existing options. Instead, the release focuses purely on aesthetic changes.
Along with the existing brush aluminum, silver modules with red and black accents, the five new color schemes which can be seen above, include silver with white or black accents and black with white, yellow or orange accents.
G.Skill says the new modules should be available at the end of May with new color schemes available in select configurations only. Check out the [...]
Thanksgiving is one of our favourite holidays for many reasons. It’s the holiday that excuses our insatiable appetite for turkey and lets us express our gratitude towards our family and our dear readers! So to give something back to you guys, we’ve compiled a list of the best hardware deals from around the web so you can keep your system happy, too!
Okay, enough with the cheesy introductions and let’s get down to business, I’ll be curating some of the best deals from around the net, For GPU deals though check our GPU reviewers round up.

When DDR4 was first “launched” alongside Intel’s Haswell-E/X99 platform, the biggest complaint among the enthusiast crowd was that it offered little performance and capacity improvements over DDR3 despite costing a significant amount more. At the time, DDR4 manufacturers were quick to point out that performance and capacities would improve, but we weren’t exactly given any timelines on when that would happen.
According to a recent press release, G.SKILL recently announced that they’ve begun shipping their latest Ripjaws 4 series memory kits at up to 3,333MHz, making G.SKILL the first memory manufacturer to offer memory at higher [...]
It’s really no secret that I love building my own PCs and it’s quite rare that you’d see me buy a pre-fab desktop. For me, there’s simply no value add in ordering a custom PC built with off the shelf parts I can easily put together myself. However, there are some system builders who’ve found ways to provide value add for enthusiasts such as myself by developing stuff like exclusive components or enhanced warranties that are far superior in comparison to the ones offered by PC component manufacturers.
Today we’ll be reviewing the CyberPowerPC Zeus Mini-I 780, which is a brand new system from CyberPowerPC [...]
G.SKILL took the DDR3 performance crown at Computex 2013 with their introduction of the TridentX 3,000MHz memory kits, but it seems like ADATA has something up their sleeves as well. With a little co-op from their friends at ASRock, ADATA recently unveiled their latest XPG V2 memory kits which are now spec’d to run at a a ridiculous fast 3100MHz at 1.65v right out of the box. This is 100MHz faster than the G.SKILL TridentX 3,000MHz memory kit making the XPG V2 3,100MHz kit the fastest dual channel DDR3 kit on the market (assuming you can get your hands on a set).
No pricing or availability information is available at this time, but I’d expect them to cost [...]
Since we’re mostly enthusiasts here at Custom PC Review, we typically enjoy reviewing the highest clocked, lowest latency memory, but with energy efficiency becoming so popular these days with companies introducing ultra energy efficient 28nm GPUs, 22nm CPUs, and solid state drives, it only seems logical to find out what kind of energy efficiency may be had by going with low voltage memory.
This is why today, we’ll be reviewing the Kingston HyperX Genesis: LoVo 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz kit. (Which will now be referred to as HyperX LoVo for simplicity’s sake in the review.) Whereas the Kingston HyperX name typically implies high performance memory, [...]
Taipei, Taiwan, May, 30th 2012 – GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, today announced the record highest validated CPU clock speed on the Intel® Core™ i7 3770K processor using a GIGABYTE Z77X-UD3H motherboard, as well as the new world record highest DDR3 memory speed using the GIGABYTE Z77X-UD5H motherboard.
The 7.0 GHz milestone was surpassed using an Intel® 3rd generation Core™ i7 3770k processor (aka Ivy Bridge) by renownedoverclocker HiCookie, pushing the GIGABYTE Z77X-UD3H motherboard to a fully validated 7.03 GHz using liquid nitrogen cooling. This is regarded as the [...]
It seems like there’s a new cooler on the market every time I turn my head. I mean, even the CPU giants like Intel and AMD have their own all in one liquid cooling solutions nowdays. With all these coolers floating around, it can be dizzying trying to choose the right one. However, anyone who’s familiar with CPU coolers will know that each cooler has differences. There’s are always companies out there that release the most forward thinking, most innovative designs and those who make coolers that seem like they’re based off a reference design somewhere.
Luckily for us, we’re going to be [...]
Memory manufacturers are a dime a dozen and it’s actually quite hard to find inexpensive, yet high quality memory, but one company that is consistently able to provide such a product is G.Skill. If you have no idea who G.Skill is, they’re a relatively large manufacturer of memory products and, more recently, solid state drives.
So, what prompted this memory review? Is this some cutting edge space age stuff? Well, no. What it is, is some typical, run of the mill, relatively inexpensive, reliable enthusiast grade memory. So, what do we do with products like these? Well, we run it through some of our most intense testing, overclock it as high as [...]
