F3-17000CL9D-8GBXLD 2x4GB review  - PCSTATS.com F3-17000CL9D-8GBXLD 2x4GB review
Wed, May 11 2011 | 4:01PM | Filed under: Memory| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

Just a quick glance at the calendar on my right, I noticed it was Valentine's Day when I wrote this introductory paragraph for this review. (Before you ask, yes I did write this paragraph a whole month and a half ahead of publication -- I ran into some problems during this review, causing such a massive delay.) How convenient. So allow me make a confession at this point: I love Sandy Bridge. No, it is not a girl named Sandy with last name Bridge. According to my Facebook profile, I don't even know anyone called Sandy. But inside my latest desktop build humming silently next to me sits something that is, according to any computer geek out there, even better than knowing Sandy in real life. And Sandy is very impressive. She is impeccably smart. She is matchless among her peers in every way. The moment you meet her, you know you don't want anyone else. And best of all, she is actually within reasonable reach. Of course, I am talking about none other than Intel's second generation Core processors code named Sandy Bridge, and from our review last week, you can see how it completely blew its predecessor away in posting truly impressive numbers across the board. And all this is before you start overclocking it. But let's not pretend a computer awesome is just because of the processor alone. To complement the latest Intel CPUs, G.SKILL is back in the game again with their latest line of memory products. The Ripjaws-X RAM, optimized for the Sandy Bridge platform, promises to deliver high performance with excellent value like the Lynnfield-optimized Ripjaws DDR3-1600 8GB CL7 set we have reviewed back in October last year. What we have here is one of their top of the heap, seriously fast DDR3-2133 Ripjaws-X F3-17000CL9D-8GBXLD 8GB dual channel kit sitting here at APH Networks right now -- but how well does it perform in our usual battery of benchmarks? We gave it a shot and have all the details for you in our review today.

A quick patch update to Windows can extend the useful life of a PC. To take the fear out of Upgrading Windows 98 to Windows XP, rely on this guide. - PCSTATS Tips
