“G.Skill have launched the Pi Series of RAM and today we have the 2200MHz P55 kit to test. Is such speed worth the investment?”

At $225 for 4GB, the G.Skill Pi Series PC3-17600 is a little pricey and at DDR3-2200 speeds and 7-10-10-28 timings it is more than a little fast. Designed to work as dual channel RAM for a Core i7 860 or 870, and with support on a number of P55 boards, this is definitely a kit aimed at those looking for the top performance around. The kit comes with G.Skill’s Turbulence Cooling Fan, a shroud type fan that attaches over top of the installed DIMMs and is rated for 7.75cfm @ 21.2db. Overclock3D even managed a bit of an overclock on these DIMMs with some nice results in their benchmarking which you can see right here.
