    If there's any confusion about which 32GB G.Skill memory kit you should buy, the following information should help.

    From the G.Skill memory faq at http://www.gskill.com/en/faq/Memory


    Q:
    What is G.SKILL memory’s naming convention/nomenclature?

    A:
    For example: F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL

    Breaks down to F3 / 12800 / CL9 / D / 8GB / XL

    Memory type:
    F1 = DDR
    F2 = DDR2
    F3 = DDR3
    FA = For Mac

    Frequency:
    10600/10666 = 1333MHz
    12800 = 1600MHz
    14900 = 1866MHz
    17000 = 2133MHz
    19200 = 2400MHz

    CL Timing:
    CL9 = CL timing (tCL), may mean 9-9-9-24 or 9-11-10-28

    Modules per kit:
    S = Single module kit (x1)
    D = Dual module kit (x2)
    Q = Quad module kit (x4)
    Q2 = Eight-module kit (x8)
    T = Triple module kit (x3)
    T2 = Six-module kit (x6)

    Total capacity:
    2 / 4 / 6 / 8 / 12 / 16 / 24 / 32 GB

    Series:
    XL / XM / XH = RipjawsX
    ZL / ZM / ZH = RipjawsZ
    RL / RM / RH = Ripjaws
    TX = TridentX
    TD = Trident
    AB / AO / AR = ARES
    ECO = ECO
    SR = Sniper
    NQ / PK / HK = Performance
    NT / NS = Value RAM
    SQ / SK = SO-DIMM for laptop

    *If there is a “D” after the series name, then a fan included, such as “8GTXD”
    *You can find the capacity of each module by dividing the Total Capacity by Modules per kit. For example, F3-12800CL9Q-16GBXL = 16GB/4(Q) = 4GB per module, while F3-12800CL9D-16GBXL = 16GB/2(D) = 8GB per module.


    Q:
    What is the difference between “DDR3-1600” and “PC3-12800”?

    A:
    There are two naming conventions for DDR memory, so there are two names for the same thing. When starting with “DDR3-“, it will list the memory frequency. When starting with “PC3-“, it will list the memory bandwidth.

    DDR3-1333 = PC3-10666 or PC3-10600
    DDR3-1600 = PC3-12800
    DDR3-1866 = PC3-14900
    DDR3-2000 = PC3-16000
    DDR3-2133 = PC3-17000
    DDR3-2400 = PC3-19200

    To convert between the two, just divide or multiply by 8.
    For example, 1600*8=12800 or 12800/8=1600.


    Q:
    Why is G.SKILL’s Qualified Motherboard List different from my motherboard manufacturer’s QVL?

    A:
    G.SKILL’s Qualified Motherboard List is the result of our compatibility tests. This list is not comprehensive because new motherboards are constantly released.
    Each motherboard manufacturer’s QVL is limited to the G.SKILL memory kit they own and are able to test. This QVL list also will not be comprehensive, because G.SKILL is constantly releasing memory kits.

    If your motherboard and G.SKILL memory kit is not listed, please contact our tech support to confirm compatibility. (techsupport@gskill.com or ustech@gskillusa.com)

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    note: their memory FAQ has not been updated to include ddr4 memory information.

    You've decided to buy a single quad channel 32GB ddr4 memory kit.

    Your remaining choice is the memory speed and the color of the memory's heat spreader.

    Available rated memory speeds are 2133MHz, 2400MHz, 2666MHz and 2800MHz.
    Ignoring the 2133MHz memory, your choices are:

    2400MHz

    [Ripjaws 4] F4-2400C15Q-32GRK (Black heat spreader) DDR4-2400 (PC4-19200) -- 32GB (8GBx4) -- CL15-15-15-35 -- 1.2 Volt
    [Ripjaws 4] F4-2400C15Q-32GRR (Red heat spreader) DDR4-2400 (PC4-19200) -- 32GB (8GBx4) -- CL15-15-15-35 -- 1.2 Volt

    2666MHz

    2800MHz
    [Ripjaws 4] F4-2800C15Q-32GRB (Blue heat spreader) DDR4-2800 (PC4-22400) -- 32GB (8GBx4) -- CL15-16-16-35 -- 1.25 Volt

    Thanks I got the email from you and G. Skill, now I am really confused. Can you narrow it down to one group? Or just a couple of options. I am not worried about something being a trillionth of a second faster. Thanks

    I see at the bottom there are groups, earlier you stated that 2400 should be good. If a higher frequency is on sale or very little cost difference will use the better one. What does the GRB, GRK, and GRR mean? Thanks

    I guess the letters represent different colors. So all is good. There seems very little price difference between the 2400 and the 2666, so will probably go with the 2666. I think this thread will be a great learning experience for others, and a testament about the value of this site, and your wisdom and patience. Can this thread be shared with others?

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, I've been tied up for the last two days.

    The last 5 characters in each model mean:
    • 32G - this is a 32GB kit
    • R - this is the Ripjaws series of memory
    • B, K, or R - the heat spreader's color is blue, black, or red

    The difference in the rated memory speeds/bandwidth is similar to the top speed in your car.
    I would go with the 2666MHz or 2800MHz kit.
    I was surprised several days ago when I researched and posted the price differences for the 2400MHz, 2666MHz and 2800MHz memory kits and the kit price spread was only about 10% from lowest to highest.

    I'm not sure what you mean by sharing this thread with others.
    The forum is about sharing information and older forum threads are not deleted.

    I'm looking forward to hearing about your new system build once it's assembled and running.

    The intel processor states on the box supports DDR4 Quad Memory, this is consistent with what is suggested by G. Skill? Will get the 2666. Another quick question, earlier I stated that I have a 500 gb Samsung Pro SSD, I will be using as the boot, start, or mail memory. You stated the possibility of getting a second SSD and putting them in raid0, I believe. Will that be easy to do for my computer friend, and is done often? Any special connectors I will need to have ready for him? Thanks again.

    Any difference between 15Q and 16Q, only a five dollar difference on Newegg. Almost done being a pest.
