Today we are going to take a look at a special quad channel memory kit from G.Skill called the RipjawsZ F3-17000CL9Q-16GBZH. The Ripjaws Z PC3-17000 are specifically designed for the quad memory channels found in the LGA2011 Sandy Bridge E processors and X79 platforms. These four G.SKill RipjawsZ modules are 2133Mhz parts and come with a couple of fully supported XMP profiles that, when set, will adjust the system clock to a 21.33x along with setting the base timings and voltage. The default configuration has the modules running at CL11-11-13-28 with a respectable voltage of 1.5v. Once you engage the XMP profile the voltage jumps to 1.65v and timings change to a slightly better profile of CL9-11-12-28.
You will definetily see a significant performance increase whenever you can run your memory clock above the default 16x multiplier setting and is exactly what you will get from these modules. While the F3-17000CL9Q RipjawsZ modules might not have the best timings their overall performance is perfect for gaming, mild overclocking and even general purpose computing. Source
