G.Skill uses a blister pack that is held together by two knobs at the top of the package. We can see the modules through the package and we can clearly see that they're part of the Trident series. Across the top we can also see it's a tri-channel kit which is designed for i7 CPUs. We can see below this, G.Skill mentions "Extreme performance for Nehalem from G.Skill."
On the back of the package we can see across the top the G.Skill logo along with a "Where speed is!" motto. Below this we have a bit of a blurb on G.Skill and their tri-channel kit.
Across the very bottom we have some information on G.Skill, but more importantly we have the model which not only tells us how much memory we've got, but also the speed, which as we've mentioned is 2000MHz. Further to that is mention of the timings these modules are designed to run at. We'll get into more details on this in just a moment, though.
Having a look at the modules themselves, we can see that G.Skill have mixed it up a bit when it comes to the heatsink design. We've got three fins on each side that look pretty funky. What you can't see here is that those three fins are also three fins deep, so what we have is 18 little fins per module.
We already saw the front of the modules when we had a look at the package. We can see on one side we have a sticker that gives us the G.Skill and Trident logo along with a bit of artwork in the middle and DDR3 mentioned here as well.
On the other side of the modules there isn't a whole lot going on. We do have a sticker in the top right corner that gives us a run down on all the important information. As we've already mentioned a few times, the modules come clocked in at 2000MHz. As for timings, they're pretty relaxed with a 9-9-9-24 setup. This is achieved at 1.65v. As for the amount, we've got a 2GB x 3 setup to give us a grand total of 6GB.
