So far we have taken a look at two different DDR4 kits from Crucial. Up first we had their JEDEC kit, which ran at the DDR4 default speed of 2133 MHz. The next kit we got our hands on was the Ballistix Sport kit that had some nice heatspreaders and ran at 2400 MHz. Now we are ready for Crucial’s top of the line DDR4 kit, which is the Ballistix Elite. The new Ballistix Elite DDR4 memory features a completely redesigned heatspreader from the DDR3 version and speeds that start at 2666 MHz. Today we are going to be taking a look at the BLE4K4G4D26AFEA kit. This kit runs at speeds of 2666 MHz with timings of 16-17-17-36 at 1.2V. Being that this is Crucial’s most high-end kit we expect it to perform pretty well. Let’s see what they can do!
We have taken a look at a few different DDR4 memory kits over the past couple of months. The kits ranged from entry-level to high-end. Kingston’s HyperX brand is known as their high-end brand. Their best memory and solid state drives are part of the HyperX family. Of course with DDR4 being new we expected some new HyperX memory and Kingston delivered with their HyperX Predator series. This is not your typical memory, it is high-end with some of the tightest timings we have seen for DDR4 and the performance to match it. The Predator Series is available in speeds ranging from 2133 MHz all the way up to 3000 MHz. Today we will be taking a look at the HX424C12PB2K4/16 kit which is a 16 GB kit running at 2400 MHz with timings of 12-13-13-35 at 1.35V. Let’s see what this kit can do!
The first ever DDR4 memory kit that we reviewed was from Crucial and it was their standard JEDEC kit. While this memory was impressive it is not what most gamers and enthusiasts are looking for. Today we are taking a look at a second DDR4 kit from Crucial, this time it is of their Ballistix Sport DDR4-2400 memory. This memory features an operating speed of 2400 MHz with timings of 16-16-16-5 at 1.2v. The 16 GB kit that we are looking at today of course has some very attractive, yet non-intrusive heatspreaders as well. Let’s get this kit on the test bench and see what they can do!
Recently Kingston introduced their brand new HyperX Savage Series DDR3 memory kits. The HyperX Savage series effectively replaces the HyperX Genesis series that has been on the market for a few years now. The refresh sees a new improved and stylish red heatspreader, black PCB and of course the great quality we expect from Kingston. Kingston’s HyperX Savage memory is available with speeds ranging from 1600 MHz to 2400 MHz in single 4GB and 8GB modules and dual-channel kits ranging from 8GB all the way up to 32GB. Today we will be taking a look at the highest clocked kit the HX324C11SRK2/16 which runs at 2400 MHz with timings of 11-13-14 at 1.65V. Let’s get them on the test bench and see how they do!
Recently we took a look at our first DDR4 memory kit, which was from Crucial. It was their JEDEC kit so it had no XMP profile and runs at the stock 2133 MHz as well as no fancy heatspreaders. Well the kit we are taking a look at today is much different. It has a nice set of heatspreaders and runs at 2400 MHz with timings of 15-15-15-25 at 1.2V. The kit we are talking about is G.Skill’s F4-2400C15Q-16GRK kit, which is a 16 GB kit. G.Skill will also be offering these kits in three different color options so you can match them to your motherboard, case and other components. Let’s get these modules in our X99 system and see what they can do!
Intel recently launched their Haswell-E HEDT (high-end desktop) processors and accompanying X99 chipset. With that came the introduction of DDR4 memory to the consumer market. DDR4 memory has been used in server implementations, but the X99 chipset is the first consumer platform to support DDR4 memory. DDR4 brings with it faster data rates (2133 MHz standard), higher capacity levels and improved efficiency over DD3. Today we will be taking a look at our first DDR4 memory kit and it comes from Crucial. We are taking a look at their 32 GB (4x8GB) DDR4-2133 Kit (CT4K8G4DFD8213). This is Crucial’s JEDEC kit so it is not fancy at all and does not come with a XMP profile. The kit runs at 2133 MHz with timings of 15-15-15-36 at 1.2V.
Patriot has been making memory for quite some time and their Viper series has been around for a while. Now on its third revision the Viper 3 Series offers dual and quad channel kits in 8 GB, 16 GB and 32 GB capacities with speeds ranging from 1600 MHz all the way up to 2400 MHz. All of these kits are tested to work with both AMD and Intel systems and are ready to handle what you can throw at them. Today we will be taking a look at the PV38G240C0K kit, which is a 8 GB (2x4GB) kit that has a speed of 2400 MHz with timings of 10-12-12-30 at 1.65v. With its sleek heatspreaders and high speeds will the Patriot Viper 3 kit make it into your next build? Read on as we take a look…
Crucial has recently added a new line to their Ballistix Series of enthusiast memory. The Ballistix Sport XT is part of Ballistix Sport series and Crucial has aimed this kits specifically at gamers. Crucial has improved the heat spreader by making it larger, which gives it more surface area for better heat dissipation. Sport XT modules run at speeds all the way up to 1866 MHz and are available in 4GB and 8GB densities. Today we are going to be taking a look at the BLS4K4G3D18ADS3 kit, which is a 16 GB (4×4 GB) kit that runs at 1866 MHz with timings of 10-10-10-30 at 1.5v. Let’s put this memory to the test and see it is worth getting for your next build!
Today we are taking a look at some of ADATA’s latest DDR3 enthusiast memory. The kit we are checking out today is part of the XPG V2 Series. This series is an upgrade from the original XPG series which was offered in speeds up to 2133 MHz. Now that Haswell is here and we can have much faster speeds ADATA has come out with the XPG V2 series. This series is available in a wide variety of capacities and speeds to suit pretty much anyone’s needs. The memory we are taking a look at today is their 8GB dual channel DDR3-2400 kit. This kit comes with timings of 11-13-13-35 at 1.65v and offers a very attractive gold heatspreader. Read on as we take a look…
Kingston is celebrating 10 years of HyperX. Can you believe that HyperX has been around that long? It makes me feel pretty old! HyperX is of course Kingston’s high performance memory line. Recently they have added the HyperX name to other high performance products like their solid state drives and flash drives. To commemorate the 10th Anniversary of HyperX Kingston has released their 10th Anniversary HyperX Memory Kits. The modules feature an extremely attractive heatspreader, high frequencies, XMP profiles and the heatspreaders are not that large so they will not get in the way of your CPU cooler. Today we are looking at the KHX24C11X3K4/16X kit which is a 16GB kit (4x 4GB) that operates at 2400MHz with timings of 11-13-13 at 1.65V.
