Whew, another desktop memory product evaluation. If you have been following our recent articles, you can probably see how big of a challenge it is even for me to write a good introduction for a RAM review. While the opening paragraph for the Patriot Viper Xtreme Division 2 PC3-15000 2x4GB review did not bring about something applicably inspiring by a long shot, let's talk about some facts that came in handy as presented in my Kinsgton HyperX PnP DDR3-1600 2x4GB SODIMM review about a month ago. Recently, my colleague Preston was having a house party, and I was invited over to trash his place. After the party was over, one of the girls did not have her car with her, and since I needed to drive a friend who lives in the same area anyway, I gave her a lift home as well. Upon exiting Preston's neighborhood on the main road, I asked her for directions on how to get to her place -- and much (un)surprisingly, she gave all the wrong instructions; such as telling me to turn left when I was clearly supposed to turn right. Although my friend's claims about how girls are bad at giving directions was quickly disregarded as a stereotype, I presented to the girl some facts about the female brain -- as in, the inferior parietal lobule in the cortex of the brain, responsible for perception of space, time and speed, is significantly smaller in females than males. So while she was not particularly impressed by the facts of life, different people are impressed by different things, right? Well, there are some facts about the G.SKILL Ripjaws-X F3-14900CL9D-8GBXL 2x4GB we are reviewing today that will get people like me impressed. I will agree with the fact that its DDR3-1866 9-10-9-28 specification is not particularly impressive. But what is impressive is the G.SKILL achieved these numbers with only 1.5V. Ahh, facts. Let's waste no time, and keep the rest of them rolling!
