This is the first DDR4 memory kit that we have reviewed, and what a start! To recap, the F4-3000C15Q-16GRR is a quad-channel 16GB (4x4GB) memory kit rated at DDR4-3000 with timings of 15-15-15-35 at 1.35V.
The GSkill Ripjaws 4 3000 MHz kit managed to both meet and exceed my expectations on Intel's latest X99 Express platform, proving capable of supporting a high-speed overclock for daily use as one of the more affordable high-end kits out there right now.
At the time of testing, I was able to find this kit for $260 at a popular online retailer. This seems to be a competitive price. Like all of G.SKILL's memory, they feature a lifetime warranty. The Ripjaws 4 has a good combination of price, performance, and cosmetics.
The F4-2400C15Q-16GRK kit we reviewed today is selling at my favorite online retailer for $259.99. Overall ThinkComputers gives the G.Skill Ripjaws4 DDR4-2400 16GB Memory Kit a 10 out of 10 score and our Recommended Award.
On the performance side there’s nothing bad to say: overall performance was solid even if overclocking didn’t gain as much as I’d hoped for. Best of all the latency on these G.Skill modules was fantastic further reaffirming the strength of Hynix ICs for overclockers and performance enthusiasts.
The G.Skill Ripjaws 4 F4-3000C15Q-16GRR memory kit easily earns our recommended award as it was a very nice performing kit of memory and we were glad we could hit 1T command rates on it with a slight bump up in voltage. The pricing on this kit is also very competitive and substantially lower than other brands right now.
