It's clear why the PI Series have become a hit for G.Skill. At around $200.00 it's not a cheap kit with it coming in anywhere from $40 - $70 more expensive than a PC3-17600 kit from G.Skill and other companies. At the same time, it's not insanely expensive either which is typical of G.Skill. What we again see is an extremely fast memory kit that doesn't carry with it too crazy a price.
As always, though, with these high performance memory kits it's important that you do have a bit of an understanding of your BIOS so you really can get the most use out of this memory. Throwing them in your system and running them at 1333MHz DDR is just a complete waste of time and money, so if you don't know what you're doing try and find a friend who can quickly jump in the BIOS and make sure you get the most from the RAM.
Looking at the price; throw in the Turbulence cooling fan and check out the speed the kit is capable of and you're got yourself another fantastic kit of RAM from G.Skill which while not breaking the bank, will break the sound barrier.
You've got the perfect balance between performance and price when looking at this kit. Look at the fact that the heatsink design feels fantastic and it's just really hard to fault this kit.
If all your friends are running around with PC3-16000 memory and you want to have some more speed, skip the PC3-17000 stuff and check out these PC3-18400 modules from G.Skill. With some luck you might find yourself climbing towards 2400MHz DDR as well.
