Computex 2014 - Looking at the G.Skill booth we got a chance to see the new RAM cooler that G.Skill had recently introduced. While that was indeed what got our attention at first; what sat under the cooler was what really made us excited.

G.Skill are no slouch when it comes to RAM speed and looking above you can see the company has got the 16GB kit which consists of four 4GB modules running at an amazing 3501MHz DDR3 with a 14-31-31-45-2T setup on the mATX ASUS MAXIMUS VII GENE using an Intel Core i7 4770K CPU.

Showing that the speed isn't just limited to one motherboard; we see the same kit running the same timings on the ASRock Z97 OC Formula next to it. The biggest issue with memory like this, though, isn't having a motherboard that can support these speeds; but having a CPU with a memory controller that can.
