After our review of the G.Skill DDR3-2133 Ripjaws X high-end storage, we want to turn this time another quad-channel kit, anyone who looks at current memory modules, which will almost certainly have been discovered to be a trend sweeping heat spreaders, the modules can be aggressive and accordingly the "fast" look. Manufacturers are trying here about the look of the modules to suggest a corresponding benefit, for modules with voltage 1.65 V, which may still make sense, at low voltage and ultra low voltage rather not.
Since the G.Skill ECO , the memory manufacturer, in addition to its well-known overclocking modules such as the Trident or Ripjaws series also devoted time and again with very low voltage and compact spreader. The Ares Series brings you here again on the stand, the latest series in question consists G.Skill Ares, a whole series of modules, the clock rates start going up until 1333 and 2133 MHz with CL9 too rich, module will be offered greatest of 4 and 8 GB kits up to 32 GB but the purchase of individual modules is possible.
G.Skill offers the modules but not only with different clock rates, but we must also do is choose the color, ares is the module that is it in metallic blue and metallic orange with black board set, suitable for most motherboards are known to be happy on blue and red and black.
For our test of the Ares series we have chosen a quad-channel kit, which probably the most interesting is the price of the series, the full name of the kit is F3-1600C9Q 16GAO, it is a set of four 4x4 GB modules with the timings CL9-09/09/24 at a clock rate of 1600 Mhz, the module voltage is 1.5 V.
Modules with 1600/1866 MHz can be well described already present as a standard for DDR3, because the smaller kits are cheaper but hardly a performance point of something to settle among them. Especially if the integrated graphics of the new CPUs from AMD or Intel will be used - which uses the main memory as video memory - it is worth something faster access to modules.
