Default G.SKILL Ripjaws F3-12800CL7D-8GBRH 2x4GB DDR3 RAM review

In the days where every person in the house has their own personal computer is no longer a luxury, and considering the fact that the term 'family computer' has long exited the minds of most people, it is interesting to see how much PC hardware has changed in the last decade -- both in continually lowering prices, and fundamentally increased performance breakthroughs. I often find it kind of funny when I talk to some middle school kids in my church, where half of them probably have better cell phones than I did when I was in high school (Not to make myself sound old or anything -- I'm only 20, haha). "I had a piece of crap Motorola when I was in high school. And way back when I was in elementary, cell phones were surely a luxury... and they did nothing more than call people. Not even text..." just as they glanced back at me, not exactly knowing how to respond. Meanwhile, at the mention of playing games like Need for Speed II on Windows 98 that did not seem all too long ago, these things were made even before they were born. Remember when Pentium II processors were considered state-of-the-art, and 8GB hard drives were the standard? Yeah, those were the days. If I said during that time period 8GB RAM kits would be readily available for less than $200 in ten years, most people would probably laugh out loud. It is just hard to imagine what we could possibly do with such magnitude of capacity, as if I am saying within the next ten years, 1000GB of RAM will be nothing out of the ordinary. But times have changed -- and 8GB of RAM, while plenty, is not really such a foreign concept to us anymore. With that in mind, we are no longer stuck at low performance, high capacity memory kits, either. G.SKILL's Ripjaws F3-12800CL7D-8GBRH 2x4GB dual channel set for Core i5/i7 processors runs at DDR3-1600 with CL7 latencies, promising high capacity and high performance all at the same time. How well does this product fare in our benchmarks today? Read on to find out!
