Nice sticks, no wonder why I see them in alot of builds. Good price too (and the good review part is a given ;) )

The world of Ram is moving right along. I wonder what Spec Ram we will be seeing with the new CPU offering from Intel. DDR 5 ??

Considering the new CPUs from Intel and AMD are coming out early next year, odds are it'll be DDR3. :P Maybe at a higher spec than the 1333 most boards do at stock, but I doubt DDR4 or 5 would be out by then.

Nice review, I've been considering the Ripjaws RAM for a while and nice to see them perform exceptionally.

I use 8GB of this RAM in 2GB sticks in two computers. It works well and the XMP profile is apparent on both Mainboards. So as a set it and forget it solution, you can't go wrong.
I'm building a i7-875K system in mid December and I may use this 8GB kit instead of two 4GB kits for it.

CPU: i7-2600K CPU     Cooler: H80 Corsair with two Enermax TB Silence PWM fans.     MOBO: Gigabyte Z68XP-UD3.     RAM: 16GB DDR3-2133 GSKill RipJaws-X (four 4GB).     GPU: Diamond H7870 GHz Edition (times two) in crossfire.     SSD: Kingston 120GB SSD Now 300.     DVD Burner: Plextor PX-L890SA.     HDD: WD 1TB 7200RPM 64MB Cache (times two) in RAID-0.     PSU: Rosewill Hive 750W Semi-Modular 80+ Bronze.     Case: Rosewill Blackhawk With all fans replaced with Enermax (120mm & 140mm) TB Silence w/no LEDs.
