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: i7-4790K CPU Cooler: NZXT Kraken X40 with Four Noctua PWM fans. MOBO: Gigabyte Z97X Gaming-3. RAM: 32GB DDR3-2400 GSKill (four 8GB). GPU: GTX-980Ti(times two) in SLI. SSD: Two 480GB Kingston HyperX Savage. DVD Burner: Plextor PX-L890SA. HDD: WD 4TB 7200RPM 64MB Cache. PSU: Corsair 1000W Gold. Case: NZXT Source 530 W/All Noctua (120mm & 140mm) fans.
Screen: 4K 28" ACER
