The G.Skill "Ripjaws Z" F3-17000CL9Q-16GBZH showed up on our doorstep direct from G.Skill's Taiwan offices, clad in plastic clamshell that G.Skill has been using for quite some time for many of their products. The clear plastic allows prospective buyers to see two sticks of the memory kit itself easily, and highlights the aesthetic design of the included heatspreaders. Up on the top right corner of the package is a small highlight showing that this kit has been certified for functionality on the Intel X79 platform. Flipping the package over, we find the other two DIMMs, with a small cardboard layer in between, isolating the pairs of sticks from each other.
Once opened, we can see that there is a bit of information on that piece of protective cardboard, but it seems like standard packaging info for the product line, rather than info specific directly related to the modules inside. The second image above shows that provided information.
With the card out of the way, we can see all four modules; each nestled securely in its own section of the clamshell. G.Skill has informed us that the final retail packaging may differ slightly, but as the box isn’t exactly what we’re interested in, it’s hardly that important, but is still worth mentioning.
