G.Skill Flare Series PC3-16000 (2000MHz) 4GB Kit - FrostyTech.com G.Skill Flare Series PC3-16000 (2000MHz) 4GB Kit
Tue Aug 31, 2010 | 12:01P| PermaLink
"I've had the Flare kit from G.Skill for what feels like forever now. It has been sitting on the top of the to-do pile, but delays with getting an AMD X6 processor and a motherboard capable of achieving the rated speeds meant that the kit kept getting pushed back further and further. Everything has finally come together and it’s time to see what the new Flare series is capable of. PC3-16000, or 2000MHz DDR, might not sound all that impressive in a time which we see kits exceeding 2500MHz DDR. What's different about the kit we're looking at today is the fact that it's designed for AMD systems as opposed to Intel. We've been told that it's a lot harder to get faster kits up and running on AMD systems, but it seems that the new X6 processors have brought new possibilities."

It's surprising how time just flies by. It feels as it was just yesterday when the new term computer science classes just started for me, and one whole semester is already close to an end. Not to mention it has been a very long time since our last heatsink review, but it barely feels that way! One of the most notable was our Noctua NH-U12P review, written by APH Networks' Editor-in-Chief Jonathan Kwan, which achieved an APH:Renewal Award for its very balanced performance and general excellence back in the days. During this interval of time, we have observed a relatively slow development in terms of technological progression in the heatsink market. The same basic heatsink design concepts still apply today. It's still about efficiency and even more so, the effectiveness of the fan on the heatsink itself. In that regard, it is absolutely critical to strike an optimal balance between noise, fan speed, and airflow for a viable product in today's extremely competitive high end personal computer air cooling market. That said, there are newer heatsinks with more radical designs such as Thermaltake's V1 or Cooler Master's V10 on the market today. The funny thing is that their names sound a lot more like an automotive engine than a heatsink, haha. Too bad we can't equip them with variable valve timing or add a turbocharger in, otherwise imagine what they can do? Jokes aside, even with such products on the market, it did not render the inherent balance of simplicity, price, and effectiveness of tower heatsinks obsolete at all. In light of that, we took on the TMG IA1 tower heatsink from Thermaltake. But how will it perform in real life? Read on to find out.
