    Nice review SkyGuy!!

    So I pulled up this review and the Crucial 6GB DDR3-1333 review you did side by side. Very interesting. To what degree would you agree with the statement: "Performance of the two set-ups was the same clock for clock"?

    Would you mind comingling the results of the tests performed in the two articles in some graphs for us to examine? It might be an interesting way to test the statement above.

    Edit:

    What is your CPU speed at those various memory clocks that you tested at? (1333, 1600, 1866, 2000)

    Great Review Sky
    Just wondering what BaseClock mhz did u use to achieve 2000mhz ?

    Does XMP really work?
    My memory does have XMP profiles support but i was told that its not advisable to run those Rams on 1866mhz (XMP) profiles 24/7??? since my memory's default speed is 1600mhz

    CPU speed was kept at stock (2.66) for all tests in order to compare apples-to-apples, so to speak. Raising the speed would have resulted in faster SuperPI times, for example.

    For the next tri-channel test (I have a few more coming actually!) I will try to compare the modules side-by-side at each speed/timing, that's a great suggestion Rosco! I'm already starting to notice a difference so I will document those for the next review. The big differences I'm seeing are in terms of bandwidth results, some modules achieve higher bandwidth than others at the same settings. Real world performance is less tangible in some cases though. I have a set here that actually beats these HyperX modules in terms of bandwidth, but cannot put up the high clock speeds since they're rated for 1600 and not 2000 like the HyperX. So comparing results at given speeds/timings can be done, but at some point, certain modules exceed others because they can go much higher (ie--2000 rated vs 1333 rated). Mind you, CPU speed makes FAR MORE difference in performance overall.

    Bully, XMP does work. In the case of these Kingston modules, they're rated for 2000, so running them at 1866 is not a problem because they're below spec. Even at 2000, that's their rated speed, so it's fine. However, in your case, your RAM could be run at 1866 for 24/7, but it depends what the XMP profiles will set them to in terms of voltages. You may not be comfortable running them at 1.65V 24/7, it's a judgement call though. However, in terms of real-world performance, there isn't much difference between 1600 and 1866. 1600 is awfully fast in tri-channel setup to begin with.

    Ahh, that is a good thing to keep CPU at stock for the reviews. For some reason I though you were suggesting the XMP profiles were adjusting your CPU settings and OCing it. Strange, the SuperPI thing was exactly where I was going, though I said nothing about it Our own members have some nicer scores, but at super CPU OC's really. You should get your OC'd i7 920 on there. BTW, can anyone fix the hwbot malfunction? Its not refreshing.

    I'll be pumped to see some head to head DDR3 testing in the future. Besides the general reasons,

    Totally agree. Not to thread-hijack my own thread LOL, but I cannot seem to get HWBot to update, if anyone knows how/what to do, please post in the SuperPI thread, or send me a PM. Thanks!
