gskill ripjaws sodimm ddr31866 c10 test-teaserMore and more manufacturers are presenting powerful mini-PCs and increasingly mini-ITX motherboards on the market, which means that SO-DIMM memory is gaining in importance. Memory specialist G.Skill recognized the trend and presented matching memory kits with high clock speeds and low access times. We got us a Ripjaws kit with a speed of 1866MHz and timings of CL10-10.10.32 at 1.35 volts. In this review, we will test the G.Skill F3-1866C10D-16GRSL with 16 GB.

A few days after the official launch we received the G.Skill F3-1866C10D-16GRSL kit of the Ripjaws Series. The kit consists of two modules, each with 8 GB of memory, which operate at a speed of 1,866 MHz and are addressed with timings of CL10-10-10-32. The voltage necessary for this performance amounts to 1.35 volts and thus will mainly be used in high-performance gaming notebooks, but also in fast HTPCs with mini-ITX motherboards and SO-DIMM memory banks. The kit does not include a heatspreader, only the Ripjaws sticker adorns the memory modules.

The technical data at a glance:

Product F3-1866C10D-16GRSL
Memory configuration 2 modules with 8 gigabytes
Frequency / timing 1866MHz @ CL 10-10-10-32
Voltage 1.35 volts
Price (as of 13.10) available starting from 140 euros
Manufacturer Link G.Skill Ripjaws SO-DIMM

The 16 GB kit is priced at around 140 euros, placing it the pricing midfield.

Our test system correctly set the appropriate clock speeds and memory timings, as can be seen in the above CPU-Z screenshot.

The SPD features further speeds and latency settings for better compatibility. With timings of 7-7-7-23 kit and a voltage of 1.35 volts, the modules should be able to operate according to DDR3-1333 standard.
