G.Skill TridentX 16GB DDR3-1866 CL8 Memory Review

TridentX 1866c8 pht1ed

This is the second time that I have reviewed the G.Skill TridentX memory series here on FunkyKit. A couple of months ago we checked how the TridentX DDR3-2400 CL9 memory performed; it achieved not only one of the highest scores but also the FunkyKit Recommended Award.

Today’s review is based on the higher density chips and this kit contains two 8GB memory sticks specified to run at 933MHz (DDR3-1866) with 8-9-9-24 main timings. Anyone who follows the changes of the memory market already know that this specification is pretty good and probably only G.Skill decided to release higher density memory with such tight main timings.

Throughout this review we will find out what the G.Skill TridentX 16GB DDR3-1866 CL9 memory kit has to offer and if it is worthy to be called the best memory available on the market.
