Manufacturer info: More info

The G.Skill Pi PC3-12800 DDR3 Tri-Channel 6GB Memory really sets itself apart from other DDR3 memory with it's excellent timing and heatsink. As a bonus is has a black/blue color theme that looks very sharp. The speed on this memory is 1600 MHz, has a timing of 7-8-7-24 and the voltage is 1.5. This particular kit has three 2GB modules for a total of 6GB, but there is another 12GB kit available.

I got 2x4gb of these on a amd setup. Couldnt match the timing without going unstable but they claim its designed for intel. Not sure why that makes a difference considering they are suppose to be simply compatible with a DDR3 standard.

That memory will fit in DDR3 modules. I think it'll work on DX58SO Intel X58 motherboard.

That's pretty decent 6GB 1600 MHz Tri-Channel DDR3 RAM. I wish I have that much memory so that I can multi-task very well on running applications such as playing games, visiting websites, or watching videos.

That's correct. Since the heatsink on this memory is so high, CPU coolers like the Cooler Master V10 won't work. Check out my comp. for ideas: www.RodsRig.com

Hey Rod.
Do you or anyone else have a recommendation for a heatsink or even possible dimensions that would work well with this memory. The performance/buck is pretty nice for this set. I can obviously guess the V10 does not work as a heatsink because it does have the tenancy to block module slots. I watched the video and I didn't see or hear mention of the heatsink you used. Possibly a closed liquid cooling such as CoolIT Domino for sufficient cooling without sacrificing sapce?
