After reviewing a number of other DDR4 memory kits over the last few months our expectations have obviously grown considerably since that initial review. While this kit is without question the best Hynix MFR-based memory that we have tested so far, the overclocking difference between it and lower priced kits like the Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-2666 isn't that large. Maybe we are getting too jaded by the impressive capabilities of Hynix-based kits, but above about DDR4-3100 15-15-15 the law of diminishing returns definitely starts applying and there doesn't seem to be that much overclocking headroom available. Furthermore, if you don't care about sky high clock speeds and are more concerned with tight timings, the Crucial Ballistix Elite DDR4-2666 kit is still remarkable. It might "only" max out at about DDR4-3000, but it's low latency prowess is absolutely untouchable.

None of this necessarily diminishes this particular kit though. The G.Skill Ripjaws 4 DDR4-3200 16GB memory is a specialized product. If you're building a day-to-day or a gaming PC, then you don't need memory like this. But if you're building a system that you're planning to tweak and play around with, some DDR4-3200 modules might be worth the investment in order to prevent any overclocking bottlenecks or just for good old bragging rights.
