Will GSKill Trident-X 2400MHz work on a X79 setup?

post #1 of 7

Hi guys,

I have ordered a 4x8 GB memory kit from GSkill, exactly this one:

http://www.gskill.com/en/product/f3-2400c10q-32gtx



My concern is that no single X79 mobo is listed in the QVL, and GSkill has another kit which is supposed to be specifically designed for X79/LGA2011. This one:

What do you think? Shoul I switch to Ripjaws Z?

Thanks

PS:I will use it with a 4930K and RIVE/RIVBE

Your observations are correct, those seem specific to z87 and the blue ones made specifically to work best with x79.

They'll be absolutely fine. Don't worry.

You might have trouble running all 4 sticks at full speed but I'm not sure how good the IMC is on the newer chips so best to wait for someone else to confirm.

Thanks guys,

I will try the kit and post my impresions. In case it does not work properly, I will change it and pick the Ripjaws Z instead.

I am using 4x8 trident x 2400's on my sabertooth x79 with zero problems if that helps. Actually thinking of buying 4 more so I can have all 8 slots filled and make a RAM disk for bf4. Just not sure how adding more memory will effect my system stability. Would hate to waste $350 if it doesn't work with that many modules.

Hello again,

I finally opted for RipjawsZ, I have them working on my setup fine with XMP active and 2400MHZ thumb.gif

I use trident-x fine on my X79. Theyre a 2600 CL10 kit which I run at 2400 CL9 1T running fine for the past year.
