G. SKILL Ripjaws V  Series 32GB (2x16GB) DDR4 3200

For the Great Quarantine of 2020, I decided to finally do something I’ve thought about doing for years…build my own computer.  After lots of YouTube videos and online research,  now seemed to be the time to try this. The next few reviews will be some of the various parts for this build. This should be fun. 

Item #6: Memory/RAM.  This was a hard choice.  There are so many options.  You can also Check your motherboards website for the QVL (Qualified Vendor List) of supported RAM, but even that was a little confusing since the codes never seemed to be the same on Amazon or Newegg.  I chose these from newegg.com.

In the Box
G. SKILL Ripjaws V  Series 32GB (2x16GB) 288-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Desktop Memory Model F4-3200C16D-32GVK

Initial Impression
Sticks seem nice and sturdy.  Easy to install. The initial 3200 speed was not detected, so I had to go into the BIOS and select the XMP Profile 1.

After 3 week of use
Computer seems to be humming along.  The RAM barely gets stressed.   32 GB is probably too much, but why not.

Negatives
None at this time.  Sometimes when I check in on that BIOS it defaults back to 2100 and not the 3200.  Not sure if that’s the sticks or the motherboard.

Conclusion
These are great RAM sticks.  The price was great and 32GB is more than enough and will outlast every other component on the PC build.
