    Motherboard vendors aren't the only ones getting ready for the big launch of Intel's new high-end desktop (HEDT) platform - Sandy Bridge-E, the ecosystem also consists of memory and cooling products vendors - more importantly, memory. Intel Sandy Bridge-E processors pack an integrated memory controller with a massive 256-bit bus width. To put it into perspective, if a motherboard is populated with four DDR3-1333 MHz modules, the system memory bandwidth would be a staggering 42,600 MB/s. Like everyone, G.Skill is expected to have memory kits with four DDR3 memory modules. It is likely that these kits consisting of four matched modules will be referred to as "quad-channel". Around this time, the company will have a new lineup, RipjawsZ.

    RipjawsZ will make use of a new, slightly taller than standard heatspreader design, and will be available in at least two color options - black and red. Some of the kits will consist of just modules, while some will also pack Turbulence II air-coolers that use two fans. In all there are two basic types of modules: ZL, ZH; among these ZH provides the best timings for the frequencies it offers. These modules will be available in a variety of speeds: DDR3-1333, DDR3-1600, DDR3-1866, DDR3-2133, and DDR3-2400. Modules with speeds of up to DDR3-1866 make do with 1.5V DRAM voltage, DDR3-2133 needs 1.60V, while some higher speed modules need up to 1.65V. These kits are available in a variety of capacities - 8 GB (4 x 2 GB), 16 GB (4 x 4 GB), 32 GB (4 x 8 GB), and 64 GB (probably 8 x 8 GB). These modules will be Intel eXtreme Memory Profile (XMP) revision 1.3 compliant.

    With taller heatspreaders and RAM slots on both side of the CPU, cooler compatibility will be an issue. I suppose that most people with the funds to go SB-e will be running watercooling anyway, so it might not be that big of an issue.

    Agreed, people going for full on performance are gonna be clocking up and needing all the cooling they can put their hands on. Compared to the stuff they'd be buying the cooling would be relatively on the cheap side.

    Too much, but rams much much cheaper than it used to be as you know, hell of a time to be into computers right now, goodies galore, just because i may not really need it, doesnt mean i dont want it!

    Wow AIDA64's gonna see some crazy bandwidth screenshots.
    No point but are these quad channel kits gonna be backwards compatible with regular Sandy Bridge?

    Yes/No. They work, yes...speeds...well..you try getting 16GB @ 2133 MHz. :laugh:

    Of course, I have only shown one kit...;)

    Wow. So for average Joe gamer, why so you need more than 8GB pf RAM anyways?? 2400Mhz looks tempting thou, but the timings are not that special...:p

    Yes, timings are not what most are used to with 2GB DIMMs, but that's jsut how it's ALWAYS worked when moving to greater-density IC's.

    I'll have a review up maybe some time soon...after the X79 launch, which these sticks are intended for.
