    Default OCZ Platinum 6GB DDR3-1600

    Today we're looking at a set OCZ Platinum 6GB triple channel DDR3-1600 modules, sticks that appear to offer great aesthetics at a great price. But what about performance? We think Performance is King, so we'll see if the missing link in the equation here is indeed missing or not with these OCZ Platinum sticks.

    Another Great Review from sky!
    Wow 1600mhz to 1954mhz? @ 9-9-9-24 timings now that's really impressive
    Sky, what did it take u to tweak in the BIOS to get to 1954mhz ?
    Were there massive changes required in the BIOS to get to 1954mhz ?

    Thanks guys!

    Bully, these OCZ modules responded very well to minor tweaks and weren't very fussy at all. I have another set of modules from another manufacturer here that are far more touchy.

    To get to 1954Mhz, I did have to push the boundaries a bit though. 1866MHz +/- is more recommended, as I was able to get to CL8 at that speed! I did need to increase the DRAM voltage to 1.64V and bump up the QPI voltage to about 1.45V as well as I recall. Beyond that, I manually set the timings, and then had to adjust the multiplier and BLCK to keep the CPU speed the same for the tests. But if you're simply going for a straight overclock, you can put your ratio/BLCK to whatever you need, and as long as you're around 1900MHz or lower, you should be fine. The ASUS P6T Deluxe is very robust, I was able to keep all other settings to Auto.

    Yes, these modules had excellent headroom left over, put up amazing performance numbers, and most importantly, can be purchased at an excellent price. Easily an Editor's Choice recipient.

    And Rosco, I did compare the results directly as requested

    We currently have 3 more 6GB tri-channel reviews on the way, so keep your eyes open!
