New G.Skill "Ripjaws X" series RAM - Page 4

post #31 of 41
^ I was looking at that as well other than the heat spreader everything is the same, how could it possibly be worth $40 more plus the normal Ripjaw has free shipping the X does not.

Ripjaw X: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231431

$40 dollar difference, save memory. There are only so many chips (IC) out there that can achieve certain timings at a given speed. All G.SKILL has done is re-purposed (Designed Specifically for P67 rolleyes.gif) and re-packaged (new blue heat spreader) and.. poof, more money for them.. same memory.

I mean, sure, but how do we know what IC is used between them? Or is it just safe to assume they're identical?

Safe to assume IMO considering it is the same manufacturer, same product (dual channel RAM), and have identical timings. IMO it wouldn't make a lot of sense from a business standpoint either.. Anything is possible but the less expensive RAM I linked is well documented to be very good OC candidates online.

yea yea yea big numbers, but its it fast?
post #35 of 41
Is there a difference bettwen the 1333 series with their latency timings?

I'm gonna pick a 2x2gb set, but don't know which ones to pick

7-7-7-21 for 60
8-8-8-24 and the 9-9-9-24 for 52 each

Thanks.

Hi Everyone,

Pardon the stupid question since I am not a big expert in RAM compatibility, but since they say this memory series is designed specifically for Sandy Bridge, does this mean if I have a P55 chipset motherboard that the memory will not be compatible with it? I mean it's still DDR3, and the sockets are the same so what is the problem?

Is it a Voltage issue, and that Sandy Bridge boards can output more voltage than P55, and this memory requires it?

Again, sorry for the n00bish question... If anyone can clear this up for me it'll be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks!

They don't look huge, but they aren't the smallest either.

I have the ripjaws x and a silverarrow. It's close but it fits just fine.

Gotta love threads like this, so you can look at your current ram with disgust lol frown.gif

Those 2.3@CL7's tho .. drool.gif

What I dont understand is how it says that it is specifically made for sandy bridge. The thing is sandy bridge memory controller in the chip cant handle more then 1.58. I guess 1.6 is ok for the ram or do you have to undervolt?
