"The stock clock speed rating on these G.Skill modules is 1600Mhz. That being said, the expectation that they might reach the 1950Mhz range was where I expected them to wind up. The fact is they kept going on up to just about the 2200MHz level that is occupied by the other G.Skill modules in this comparison, the Ripjaws X. Going this high did mean that the stock timings of 7-8-7-24 had to be thrown to the wind and adjusted as needed to reach the higher clock speeds. I ultimately settled on 9-11-9-24 using 1.70 volts instead of the as-delivered 1.60. A small jump but needed for the speed and timings I was attempting to run. If looked at on a percentage basis the Snipers saw a roughly 35% increase or 556MHz boost in clock speed. Pretty much the highest percentage increase I have run across in my testing. Not all sets will scale like this based on past history but if these sets do then the $149 price point is worth the investment."
