    G.SKILL Releases Ultra Low Latency CL17 Trident Z RGB DDR4-4266MHz Kits

    If these have the same PCB as the existing Trident Z RGB series (and even some non-RGB ones), they're going to be a pain to overclock at 1T timings on Asus and Gigabyte boards. Good PCB layout (used by most of the non-RGB Trident Z sticks, Corsair Vengeance LPX, others): Bad PCB layout (used...

    G.Skill Announces Trident Z DDR4-4400 32GB CL19 Kit

    Hynix and Micron need to step up and produce some ICs that can compete with Samsung B-die for extreme overclocked RAM, this is getting boring.

    CORSAIR Builds the World's Fastest 32GB 4x8GB DDR4 Memory Kit

    Likely no one, but I have no doubt some guys will get a kit for free to drum up hype on various enthusiast forums.

    CORSAIR Builds the World's Fastest 32GB 4x8GB DDR4 Memory Kit

    I'm afraid those days are long over, at least not without using a lot of volts. These companies are binning ICs extremely tightly.

    Apacer Introduces the COMMANDO DDR4 Memory Sticks, up to 3466 MHz

    18-18-18 at 3466? What kind of crappy ICs are they using for these things/??

    Waiting for the OC Formula.

    Corsair Announces Vengeance LPX DDR4-4600 16GB Memory

    There is definitely a difference in B-die ICs when going for extreme OC like 4133MHz 12-11-11-28 1T. PCB design also plays a part, I guarantee I have some hot potato sticks that won't get anywhere close to 4.4GHz C19.

    ASRock Announces X299 OC Formula Motherboard

    This or Apex, this or Apex....hmmm. Wish I hadn't bought the MSI Xpower, now.

    G.SKILL Announces New DDR4-4600 MHz Extreme Performance Trident Z Memory Kit

    Has to be a board with less DIMM slots that are closer to the CPU, for cleaner signals. Hence the Apex and OC Formula, as mentioned. Possibly if there are any mITX Z299 boards on the market, they might be able to do ti as well.

    MSI Launches GE63VR/73VR Raider Gaming-Oriented Laptops Sporting 120 Hz Display

    Alienware and Clevo/Sager seem to be the only options for 1440p 120Hz panels out the gate, but it's actually not that hard to replace a laptop panel and the AUO screens with that spec are pretty easy to find.

    Ballistix Elite 3466 MHz DDR4

    True, though it has a habit of dying suddenly. I've received quite a few DOA B-Die sticks myself. On the other hand it is the best clocking DDR4 IC to date. The Crucials could be a gem since they don't have any SKUs higher than 3466 so the binning likely isn't as tight as G.Skill's/Corsair's etc.

    MSI GTX 1080 Ti Lightning Z 11 GB

    Probably not, I think just about all video cards these days that actually have a DVI connector use DVD-D, which doesn't have the pins for analog VGA output (DVI-I).

    MSI GTX 1080 Ti Lightning X and Z Now Available on Newegg- $859/869

    It's still around, they are two fan designs with the traditional red and black color scheme.

    Ballistix Elite 3466 MHz DDR4

    More B-Die!!!!1111ONE Well hopefully these will cost less than the likes of Corsair and G.Skill.

    G.SKILL TridentZ RGB 3600 MHz C16 DDR4

    I've read not-so-great things about these sticks over at HWBot, specifically in regards to the PCBs for these not being as good for overclocking since they have to incorporate the extra signaling for the RGB lighting. I've also heard of horror stories about the SPDs getting corrupted.

    Missed that, they didn't make it very apparent. I may have to try this one.

    OWC Announces the 13-port Thunderbolt 3 Dock for New MacBook Pro

    I have a Windows laptop with a TB3 port, theoretically this should work with any machine sporting the USB-C connector with Thunderbolt 3 right?????

    CORSAIR Launches DOMINATOR PLATINUM Special Edition DDR4 Memory

    These are using the same Samsung 8Gbit B-die ICs everyone else is using, no sense paying that much just for the fancy heatspreader.
  21. S


    How was the memory OC capablity of this board? Specifically with Samsung B-Die, can it manage 3866C12 CRT or 4000C12 CR2?

    G.Skill Ripjaws V 3600 MHz DDR4 (2x 4 GB)

    @cadaveca did you ever peep under the heat spreaders for these (or pull up Thaiphoon Burner) to check the IC? I know they use Samsung, but there is a new IC out, Samsung E-die (K4A4G085WE) that is showing even more promise than the D-die (K4A4G085WD).

    Patriot Announces New Viper 4 3600MHz Dual-Channel Memory Kit

    Price dropped after they sold out, apparently. Earlier today it was $359!

    Patriot Announces New Viper 4 3600MHz Dual-Channel Memory Kit

    That's half the price (as of today) of the G.Skill Ripjaws V with the same speed AND timings, looks like Patriot is starting to make some noise.
