    G.Skill did not have a booth in the public area last year. This time around, they have such a presence and are showing off their newest DDR3 line-up. Gone are the tiny and fairly noisy fans. Gone is the rainbow line-up of colors for heatspreaders. The compnay has really cleaned up their product line and is opting for different looking heatspreaders for their different type of memory. The very successful PI series has been expanded to DDR3 as well. G.Skill is also introducing three differently named triple channel kits. The fastest, running at 2133 MHz with CL9 is called Trident and can be viewed in a running system, with a base clock of 133. The second model is named "Perfect Storm", runs at 2000 MHz CL7. The last is the afore mentioned PI Black series, running at 1800 MHz CL7. All of these modules are actively cooled with various clip-on or screw-on fans.

    The DDR2 memory also features a similar active cooler and the PI series is available with up to 1200 MHz CL5 as a 4 GB Kit.

    That looks really cool. And I like how they made it to fit Tri Channel memory modules.

    Prefect Storm, Trident... The third kit is probably tsunami!! :rockout:

    In the past year, I've really got to love G Skill for their ram and everything else! Ram that I know will tend to all ways do what they are made to do!

    I Usually build lower to Mid-range PC's so I've not much toyed with DDR3 as of yet.

    Last news I saw on DDR2 vs DDR3 was tending to show that in general, well clocked DDR2 ram was actually performing better than DDR3 rigs (Via Tom's H/W)- Is this still the case or was this just opening day jitters, early bios glitches & such?

    G.Skill makes some pretty decent ram I'm glad to see they've upped it a notch with a cooler for it.

    Nice cooler fans. Would these fit regular DDR2 sockets?

    Er? Hello dude. Read the post. It is a question.

    DDR3 = 240 pin socket. DDR2 = 240 pin socket. = should fit UNLESS it requires more than 4 slots to anchor.

    I tell you, the intelligence quotient of this forum is going down.

    I don't run G.Skill, but maybe their RAM coolers will fit most RAM, I might purchase the cooling separately.
