G.Skill went a little nuts today (not necessarily a bad thing, mind you) and expanded its RipjawsZ line with a whopping 15 new DDR3 quad-channel memory kits, all of which the company claims have been optimized for Intel's Core i7 processor line for socket LGA2011 and X79 motherboards (Ivy Bridge-E, in other words). The new kits range in frequency from 1866MHz (10-11-10-30 timings) to a blistering fast 2933MHz (12-14-14-35 timings).
If you've already laid out the dough for a Sandy Bridge-E proc and an X79 motherboard, there's no point skimping on the RAM. Lots of memory is, without a doubt, a good thing; lots of speedy memory is a very good thing. G.Skill's Ripjaws line of high performance RAM has a long history of pushing DDR3 to its limits, and the company continued the proud tradition at the CeBIT exhibition in Germany, where G.Skill showed off what it calls "the fastest quad channel memory" around.
You know that guy who just plunked down a paycheck on a 32GB memory kit and struts around the online block like a peacock with his feathers stretched out? Neither do we, but if there is such a guy, you can take away his forum bragging rights with G.Skill's 'Over-the-Top, Holy Hell This Kit is Freaking Massive' 64GB DDR3-2400 quad-channel memory package. Actually, it's part of G.Skill's RipjawsZ line, but we take no issue if the company wants to use our moniker instead.
