G.SKILL DDR4 RAM Provides Memory For a New Computer

Last week I shared the ASUS RoG Maximus VIII Hero LGA1151 DDR4 M.2 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 Type A Type C Intel Z170 ATX Motherboard with you. I suggested it would be really fast if paired with the Intel i7-6700K 4.00 GHz CPU.

While that covers two very important parts of a new computer, we definitely need to add some RAM. This motherboard uses a new standard, DDR4, so RAM suggested in previous posts won’t work. We want something compatible with large capacity and speed to match the other components.

Using the criteria listed, I found the G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM 2133 (PC4-17000) to be the perfect match. This 16GB set sells for less than $100 at Amazon so you could load the computer with a full 32GB for under $200.


How much do you really need? That really depends on the tasks you tackle on a daily basis. For most users, 16GB is more than enough today. But if you are going to build a new computer, I think it is worth spending the extra $100 to go for a full 32GB so you are prepared for the future.
