G.Skill DDR2 and DDR3 Memory Kits - Packages and Contents

We've got two G.Skill kits on the table today, a 1000MHz DDR2 and 1600MHz DDR3 kit. Read on to see how they stack up.

Packages and Contents

 

 

 

First off we have a look at the packages that G.Skill places the modules in. From the pictures you can see that the DDR2 and DDR3 both come in identical packages, there is no difference in colour schemes either.

 

 

 

Both packages have a flip top that has a clear plastic case which covers the memory; here you get to actually see the modules before you buy them, no need for a product photo on the box. This is also where you tell the difference between the DDR2 and DDR3 modules, the DDR2 modules use a blue heatsink where the DDR3 use black heatsinks.

 

 

 

Lastly we look at the back of the boxes; again the colour scheme and info is identical on each box, however a sticker is placed on each box which gives you the info on the memory modules including their rated speed, latencies and if it's DDR2 or DDR3.
