GSKILL DDR4-3200 TridentZ Review

GSKILL DDR4-3200 TridentZ Review

Last week we reviewed a new keyboard from GSKILL, a product which didn’t exactly fall into the normal category we expect from them. It was a good board though with a bunch of gamer centric features and we look forward to reviewing their matching mouse in the coming weeks. Today though we dip back into their memory range in our GSKILL DDR4-3200 TridentZ Review.


GSKILL DDR4-3200 TridentZ Review – The Modules


This set of sticks use a black PCB and attached to it are grey aluminium heatsinks with brushed metal finish. A red trim runs along the top and attached to each module is a part number sticker which also includes speed and timings as well as voltage. For those specifications, it is 8GB per stick (XMP is supported) and the profile provided sets the memory at 3200MHz with 14-14-14-34 @ 1.35v. Warranty length is “lifetime”.

GSKILL DDR4-3200 TridentZ Review – Conclusion

The first thing we need to note about this set of TridentZ modules from GSKILL is that they are right up there as some of the best-looking sticks we have used to date. We’ve seen some impressive memory in the past as far as looks go and some crazy stuff too but the brushed metal and red trim with black PCB look awesome. It is unlikely to be style over substance though as previous experience tells us. We ran a set of GSKILL modules in our main benching PC for years without issue and would expect the same sort of reliability here too.

As far as setup goes, XMP is built in to make our life easy. Just plug in the sticks, select the XMP profile in the BIOS and reboot. Perfectly configured memory. For price and performance, this TridentZ kit retails towards the high end of the market which is no surprise given the rating of the modules. Performance is impressive with notable increases in our results when compared to lower speed memory. We also note that these modules offer particularly good timings for a 3200MHz kit, in fact, better timings than the recent 3000MHz modules we tested. As for overclocking, we were able to hit 3400Mhz with a bit of tweaking in the BIOS (C14 at 1.4v).
