G.Skill is a company that is not afraid to flex its overclocking muscle. In fact, their DDR5-8000 memory kit was recently overclocked to a crazy 10,000Mhz. They paired the RAM with an ASUS ROG Maximus Z790 APEX motherboard and Intel i9-13900K CPU to reach this insane accomplishment, and they did it on traditional air cooling. Trident Z5 memory is fitted with SK Hynix ICs which aid in providing maximum overclocking potential. What is also impressive about the Trident Z5 DDR5-8000 is it features a CAS Latency of only 40: The DDR5-7800 latency is also very low at just 38ms.
