A couple of weeks ago on Overclockers we posted a review of a great performing Trident Z 16GB DDR4-3200 memory. Today we wish to present a higher frequency memory kit from the same G.SKILL series - Trident Z 16GB DDR4-3400 CL16. After such good reviews of DDR4-3200 kit, we have high expectations regarding this faster version of Trident Z. Let's not make this introduction any longer as I'm sure all wish to see what the Trident Z 16GB DDR4-3400 memory kit has to offer.

Hmm, these look double-sided so I'm guessing they use Samsung K4A4G085WE ICs. Strange for G.SKill not to use K4A8G085WB and make them single sided as that seems easier to bin.

Single sided Samsungs are in other kits. Generally all 3000/3200/3600 at lower timings and 3600 17-18-18 are probably B series. 3000 C15, 3200 C16, 3400 16-16-16/16-18-18 and 3466+ C17 except 3600 ( which can be on both ) are E.
Reviewed 3400 kit the same as previously reviewed 3200 are based on Samsung K4A4G085WE.

Nice write up Woomack, looks like it's real advantage here was in it's speed.

Hey Woomack that was a good read. I see they gave you front page coverage over on Hwbot for this article so hats off to you.

Not really surprised the MSI board clocked better, those ITX boards with short memory traces seem to bring the best out of memory.
