IntroductionI would like to thank G.Skill for providing the review sample.
Most of you probally know G.Skill and their memory. The company is one of the few still focusing on memory product in form of RAM or SSD instead of diversifying into numerous directions. G.Skill was founded in 1989 and their mission statement sums their intend up quite nicely:
We are here to provide superior memory products and satisfactory services in order to keep pace with our customers' growing needs, and help our customers in adding value to their products. And we pledge we will continue to do so and enable both sides to obtain significant competitive advantages in the market segments.G.Skill was kind enough to send us one of their Triple Channel DDR3 Kits intended for the new Intel Core i7 in combination with the X58 plattform. It is available in a 3x1GB (F3-12800CL9T-3GBNQ) or 3x2GB (F3-12800CL9T-6GBNQ) configuration. The company offers a complete range of memory with speeds of up to 2000 MHz.
- Speed: DDR3-1600 (PC3 12800)
- CAS Latency: 9-9-9-24
- Capacity: 3GB (1GB x 3) / 6GB (2GB x 3)

G.Skill ships their memory in a fairly boring plastic blister pack with a cardboard backdrop. The rear has a sticker of the actual model of the kit, while you can see the memory clearly when viewing it from the front. I would like to see G.Skill market their memory in nicer looking packages.
