Increase Your Memory With Fast G.SKILL Ripjaws RAM

August 27, 2014

On the last couple of Wednesdays, I’ve given you two very important building blocks for a new screaming-fast computer. If you’ve missed those installments, go back and read Intel i7-4790K Processor Heartbeat of Computer and Users and Gigabyte GA-Z97X-UD5H Motherboard Perfect for i7-4790K CPU.

Now that we have a CPU and Motherboard, we need to load up our system with RAM. There are four slots on the motherboard. So if each module is 4 GB, you can put a total of 16 GB in your system. Want even more? Use 8 GB modules and the system will have a total of 32 GB when fully loaded!


I selected the G.SKILL Ripjaws 240-Pin DDR3 PC3-12800 at 1600 MHz. Each of the kits listed below contains two modules. So if you want to fill up your machine, you’ll want to get two kits.
