  • G.Skill: TridentX VS RipjawsZ What is the best?

    I had taken a look between those kits, founding just 2 differences (SPD speed, wich is just an auto default for bios that should be overrided by XMP). Heat spreaders (Trident can remove a part of it to imporve compatibility when needed).
    The rest of them seems to be 100% identical.

    What are the differences between them?

    Which are the best* ram modules??

    *They will be in a Asus MVIF (Z87 chipset)+4770k or RIVF+4820k

    Txs fo your time!

    I'd go with the TridentX, if both kits carry the same specs (unless one or the other is considerably cheaper at your market).

      Adding a bit more, the kits between im deciding are 3. De prize difference between them is les than 10€

      Option 3 are the fastest ones, but i just have just 4 DDR Slots, si with option 2 and 3 my max memory would be 16Gb, with Option one i could expand to 32Gb. Since im not in video rendering im not sure if will worth it or with 16G i will be fine for the next 5 years.

      Option 1
