GSkill Tri-Channel 1600MHz review

Will high clockspeeds triumph over low bandwidth for this RAM?

We liked

For overclocking enthusiasts, every little helps. The fact that the GSkill Tri-Channel 1600MHz clocks up to 1,866MHz will therefore be very attractive. Real-world application performance at that frequency is also distinctly speedy. The highlight is probably a 10 per cent boost in our game benchmark compared to memory DIMMs running at 1,333MHz.

We disliked

We don't want to fuss too much over performance anomalies that show up in synthetic benchmarks rather than actual applications. However, the fall off in measured bandwidth this kit suffers from when running at higher frequencies is undeniably something of a worry.
