Test Setup

The computer setup used for this review.

ProcessorIntel Core i5-2500K
MotherboardMSI Z77A-GD45
Power SupplyXigmatek NRP-PC602 600w
Test SoftwareMemtest86+ 4.20

*No OS, just the bootable Memtest.

For a start, I just wanted to make sure the memory runs at the DDR3 2400 speed, so I set the board to target at 2410Mhz for the RAM.

khx1

Not sure what happened, or why the board behaves as such but the RAM on Memtest86+ ended up showing DDR3 2800Mhz speed instead, not a bad thing because it does make it a lot easier on my side.

The initial test was on a single stick out of the 4.

After that, I did a same test on all 4 and once which it passed with flying colors.

khx3

No vDimm boost on the setup. It’s just a change of clock speed and RAM ratio. 5 hours of testing? Well I ran the test before going to sleep.

The following are the possibilties
a) the RAM could go even faster (Mhz) with the same setting.
b) boosting vDimm would push the speed (after hitting the ceiling on point a) even further
c) at the same settings, it is possible to run it at tighter timings.

Overall – it’s a great set of RAM for those who want to max out the speed of RAM. The RAM is currently available at Kingston shop at a discoutned rate of USD $198.00
