G.Skill PI DDR3-2000 C7
So who wants sleek DDR3-2000 CAS7 modules? We all do. Who needs them? Those who crave speed, and those who want to brag. Inevitably, this is a small group of diehard consumers, and for those people the PI modules are fantastic. For the rest of the mere mortals, these sticks are overkill. Certainly we won’t complain, we’re speed junkies and dreamers too and make no apologies for it.
These G.Skill PI modules offer a bit of headroom when going beyond their 2000MHz rated speeds, which is frankly a bit surprising since we expected more from them, especially considering they’re CAS7 to begin with. Loosening the timings to CAS9 didn’t give us as much headroom as we would have preferred, but the results were still impressive overall. Running 2106 MHz is nothing to be scoff at, particularly when these sticks also proved to be very stable and not touchy to voltage tweaks at all, which is always a blessing when trying to find the limits of your memory and overclock settings.
G.Skill has done an excellent job with these modules, showcasing sleek aesthetics, quality construction, and excellent performance. If you’re looking to jump on the LGA1156 Core i5/i7 bandwagon and want some high performance memory modules that run fast and stable, these G.Skill PI 4GB DDR3-2000 modules are a great option.
