GSkill Trident 2000MHz Review

Posted on Monday, May 04 2009 @ 12:43:54 CEST by

When DDR3 memory was first introduced a couple of years ago, to overclock this type of memory was fairly simple. Just increase the voltage loosen up the timings and start increasing the FSB. Now since the Core i7 CPU's were introduced back in november, we can no longer start adding an insane amount of volts to our memory to overclock them. Having a limitation on the amount of memory voltages we can apply, a voltage limitation of 1.65 volts. Well, unless you want to take a chance on bricking a perfectly good CPU. Having this limitation of voltage to the memory has left the memory world up in arms, how do they come up with memory that performs well with good timing's all the while not go above the 1.65 voltage limiation.

So with this being said, GSkill brings forth a newer memory type, the Trident 2000MHz. Now 2000MHz memory is not unheard of, but it is definetly a rare sight, especially for us Core i7'ers. Lets get down to buisness to see what these sticks of memory can do.
