Page 10 - Conclusion
Normally, we would end the review with overclocking results before we move on to our conclusion. However, being DDR3-2400 and all, it probably should not come at much of a surprise to you if I told you the G.Skill TridentX F3-2400C10D-8GTX 2x4GB does not overclock at all. With that in mind, as I have mentioned in the beginning of my review, some people suggest that heroes create a time in history. Others argue a time in history allows the emergence of heroes. No matter which side you stand on, one thing we all need to agree on is the recipe for success is not just about being at the right place or the right time. The recipe for success is about being at the right place and the right time. Is the TridentX DDR3-2400 a product in the right place and the right time? From our results, I am not entirely sure if its sizzling fast speed really poses a performance benefit at all; even with our enthusiast grade Intel Core i7-3770K processor overclocked to 4.6GHz. The only thing I am sure about is G.Skill's innovative heatsink. Utilizing a modular design that allows you to remove the top to convert it to regular low profile heatspreaders, this is something we have not seen in the past, and it is definitely a feature I would like to see in more of their products. Retailing for about $70 at press time, it certainly commands a price premium over lower frequency kits. But if you insist on having the fastest clock speed at all costs, then hey -- all power to you -- the G.Skill TridentX F3-2400C10D-8GTX 2x4GB is the set to buy.
G.Skill provided this product to APH Networks for the purpose of evaluation.

You will probably not benefit from G.Skill TridentX F3-2400C10D-8GTX 2x4GB's insane clock speed -- but its innovative modular heatspreader is definitely the highlight of the day, and I love it.
