Since the launch of the Intel P67 Sandy Bridge platform, we’ve seen a great number of changes, from performance to overclocking. That has continued through into the Z68 chipset motherboards as well, and with top performance comes new memory kits designed to take advantage of the impressive horsepower provided by the 2nd Gen Intel Core family of processors.

One of the companies that is offering a range of memory modules for the Sandy Bridge Platform is G.Skill. We’ve seen several kits from G.Skill in the past and have noted they typically offer great performance at excellent prices. Question is: can they keep up the trend?

Today we’re looking at a set of high performance G.Skill Ripjaws-X 8GB DDR3-1866 modules. They look great and come with a very affordable price tag. Can they run fast though?

Let’s find out if G.Skill has produced another winner with these Ripjaws-X modules.
