G.SKILL Memory For Kaby Lake

As is typically the case when Intel refreshes its desktop processor offerings, a number of memory partners also introduce fresh, memory kits for the platform. In the case of Kaby Lake, an array of dual-channel DDR4-based memory kits optimized for the new platform are on the way, from all of the usual suspects. We got our hands on a new kit from G.SKILL and have it pictured for you below.

We should mention that Intel’s Kaby Lake platform -- like the previous few generations -- offers full support for the latest Extreme Memory Profile (XMP 2.0) specification, for easy memory optimization and overclocking, which is employed in most enthusiast-class memory kits like the ones pictured here.

The G.SKILL Trident-Z memory kit you see here consists of two, 8GB, DDR4-3600 sticks of memory (total capacity 16GB), model number F4-3600C17D-16GTZ. The sticks run at 1.35v with CL17-18-18-38 timings, and they feature black and grey-anodized aluminum heat-spreaders, with additional fins and red G.SKILL branding accents at the top (other colors are available as well). G.SKILL throws in a case badge too.

This is the memory kit we used for all of our Kaby Lake testing and it ran perfectly throughout, at speeds ranging from 2133MHz on up 3600MHz.
