Ripjaws V 2x8GB DDR4-3000 memory kit has only one XMP profile. We don’t really need more. What is worth to mention is that XMP profile is working without issues on ASUS Maximus VIII Ranger and Hero motherboards and should also work on other motherboard series. All who are testing memory on Skylake platform know that not all memory manufacturers prepared their memory for the latest Intel platform and XMP profiles are not working. G.Skill prepared their Ripjaws V well and we have no problems with memory profiles.
Below you can see how AIDA64 see profiles programmed in reviewed Ripjaws V memory kit
What we can also say about this memory is that it’s based on Samsung IC what suggests serial number. What does it mean ? Samsung IC doesn’t require really high voltage to overclock well what can be important for all who wish to keep their memory overclocked for daily activities.
Ripjaws V memory has arrived in typical for G.Skill blister type package. We could see exactly the same package in Ripjaws 4 memory kits. What more can I say, it protects memory well and you can actually see what is inside what is an advantage when you are buying memory in retail store and for some reason you wish to check label with manufacture date or serial number.
Inside the package we can find memory itself and little sticker with G.Skill logo which we can put on the computer case to show everyone that inside is exceptional memory kit.
Ripjaws V memory looks pretty good and personally I like them more than these in Ripjaws 4 memory kits. I still wait to have a chance to test Trident Z memory but I guess it will take some more time till it will be available.
So far we can enjoy nice looking red heatsinks and black, high quality PCB what probably also helps in overclocking of these memory modules.
There are additional photos on the next pages where we can already move. Next page will tell us some more about memory performance what is probably the most important.
