G.Skill ARES 16GB 2133MHz CL9 Kit (F3-2133C9Q-16GAB) Review

With the introduction of Intel's Socket 2011 processors for enthusiasts and professionals not too long ago, it spawned a market for good XMP 1.3 DDR3 compliant kits to maximize the quad channel bandwidth and take advantage extra memory dividers north of 2400+MHz that the new platform brings. We have previously published a review of the G.Skill ARES 2133MHz 8GB kit and today we have the 16GB quad channel version for your consideration.

G.Skill's ARES memory modules differ from their popular RipjawsZ series only by the use of a low profile blue heatspreader to avoid height clearance issues with tall heatsink towers. Both share the same 6-layer PCB and Hynix H9C DDR3 memory chips which are generally well received by the overclocking community.
