There's more to the Ripjaws kit than just a cool name. Getting to the stock 2000MHz DDR speed isn't an issue with our ASROCK board and moving to a 1T command rate and squeezing an extra 40MHz DDR out of the kit wasn't hard at all either. While we did try to get higher, we didn't have much luck.
The Ripjaws kit isn't all that fancy when push comes to shove. Sure, it's a bit of an upgrade when compared to a standard heatsink that has no fins, but it's nothing too wacky. While we haven't seen the exact same fin setup before, it's nothing that's going to shock you.
At $119.99 over at Newegg, this is an extremely aggressively priced 2000MHz DDR kit. Sure, the timings are a bit more relaxed than other kits that come in at a higher price, but if you want a 2000MHz kit that isn't going to bust your bank account then this is a perfect fit.
This is a really great kit; pricing on the model is fantastic and it's great for people who want to get into overclocking, if you want to have plenty of head room yet don't want to pay that normal PC3-16000 premium which comes with most kits, you're not going to find anything else that stands out like these Ripjaws modules.
