If it's ultra-fast memory you're looking for, the G.Skill booth at CeBIT 2012 should be your first destination.

This year, the extreme memory manufacturer is exhibiting a 16GB quad-channel RipjawsZ kit that runs at a cool 2,666MHz.

The 16GB kit (4x4GB) operates at 1.65V with loosened timings of 10-12-12-31 and was shown running on an equally-high-end ASUS's Rampage IV Extreme motherboard equipped with an Intel Core i7-3960X processor.

Not one to beat around the bush, G.Skill claims that this brand of RipjawsZ is "without a doubt the best quad channel memory solution on the market." The 16GB kit will no doubt fetch a healthy premium when it arrives at retail, and while it's about as good as it gets on X79, it'll be interesting to see what speeds G.Skill will reach on Z77.

Worst investment ever. Kingston Grey 2x4 kits by two for around $80 will do nearly as much as this kit (priced around $180 I guess). Increase in any application will be minimal.

But there will be an improvement, which is the whole point, some people will pay a lot more for a mere 2% performance increase.

Llano owners could see a significant performance increase.

Although if you was spending that much on RAM for your iGPU you'd be better off going discrete. :P

That's true. Some people need not to know about value. They buy things because they can.
