i want to see wot other kits muskin gets for there red and black first but they look cool. My past rams have been Gskill kingston then back to gskill twice and then to muskin twice only cause gskill stoped being G. I like the colors alot. It maybe just a mockup i dont think the pcb is black on this (pshop)

The PCB colour is green. You can see the green tinge in the first pic under the heatspreader.

G.Skill really seems to be making a push into being a big name. Every time I recommend ram for someone they all go:" G.skill who's that?" It sucks too since key kit of g.skill that I've had has performed really well and they were cheap too. G.skills best asset seems to be their price, cheap but usually with not to bad timings either.

They can and should cut down the fin size so that big coolers can fit.

I was starting to think nobody besides OCZ cared about AMD ;)

You only have the minimum amount of Flare.

G.Skill has been an excellent manufacturer of RAM for years. These Flare have a pretty good rated speed (1800) with quick timing (6-8-6-24) at 1.65 volts...I wonder what they would be able to do at 1.5 volts...

It's too bad that DDR3 doesn't really get hot enough (even when OC'd to ~2000 mhz) to utilize these amazing looking, gigantic heatsinks...Don't get me wrong...I love me some functionless aesthetics :toast: ...but it seems that all the tall RAM heatsinks just get in the way of our CPU coolers.

Nice!

Asus Crosshair IV (ROG), New 6 core Cpu's from AMD, And now this awesome RAM from G.Skill.

AMD based computers starting to catch up!

I have agree with everyone, the heatsink is bit overkill. Love the look, but they could be shorter like the ripjaws to give room for coolers. Since they are boasting the AMD love, I hope it has a profile for AMD overdrive auto tune feature. That would be the icing on the cake

they look taller than the dominators im runin @6-6-6-15-21-1T @1400 @1.65 and they dont generate the kind of heat these heatsinks make u think they wud i wish ocz wud come back and release a crossfire labaled low profile set of ram like they did with ddr2 or corsair to drop the fins altogether

That is some of the sexiest ram I have ever seen. Now, I wonder if my P2 955 Black is a C3 stepping because I'd love to replace my Tridents with these bad boys.

It works with C2 stepping too, lol :)

I'd love to know what they did to make it "optimized for AMD3 C3 stepping platform"... Probably just a marketing scheme and these are just standard low latency high speed DDR3. :rolleyes: And yes, it would work with C2 steppings and even X58 Intel platforms as well.

Black Edition memory profiles...extra SPD profiles that only AMD IMCs can access. Like Intel XMP.

Wish the TRCD wasn't so crappy on most of the memory now. CAS is important, but all these companies are using loose TRCD to get their memory to clock fast.

I'll stick with my Corsair GTX2's for now.

Thanks BT. That was the confirmation I was looking for. Very nice G.Skills, very nice.
