In their twelve years of doing business, G.Skill has developed a solid reputation for building high performance enthusiast grade system memory. Their goal is to offer superior memory products while keeping up with modern trends. While other memory companies have diversified and now offer other hardware (power supplies, coolers, etc.), G.Skill has maintained its focus on memory based products by offering just system memory and solid state drives.
