IntroductionI would like to thank G.Skill for providing the review sample.
Most of you probably know G.Skill and their memory. The company is one of the few still focusing on memory products 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:[quote]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. /quote]
G.Skill was kind enough to send us one of their high-speed Trident series kits. This triple channel pack runs at the magical 2000 MHz Speed and is rated for CL9-9-9-24 with a command rate of 1T. The model number is F3-16000CL9T-6GBTD. The Trident family of memory kits starts at PC3-12800 which equals 1600 MHz and goes all the way up to the speed of our sample.
- Speed: DDR3-2000 (PC3 16000)
- CAS Latency: 9-9-9-24
- Capacity: 6GB (2GB x 3)

While G.Skill is finally offering memory with unique looks and with an easily to remember name, their packaging has remained the same. You will receive the memory in a clear plastic package. The modules are lined up above each other and can clearly be inspected without opening anything. The rear lists a few selling points and also holds a sticker with the details of the configuration and intended settings of the kit.
