Installation & Testing Procedures
Installing memory is extremely simple, you just pop the memory in the memory slots on your motherboard. Now with this kit you are going to be installing 8 modules so make sure you will have room. I was actually very surprised that I was able to fit all 8 modules in with my CPU cooler (Noctua NH-L12).
Once you have the memory installed all you need to do to get started is enable the XMP profile in the BIOS and you are good to go. Kingston has provided two XMP profiles because so systems may not be able to run 64GB of memory at 2133MHz.
Our test system is comprised of the following items.
Processor: Intel Core i7-3820
Motherboard: ASUS P9X79 Pro
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 680
Memory: Kingston HyperX Beast 64GB
Power Supply: Kingwin Power Force 850W
Storage: 750GB SATA II Drive
Cooling: Noctua NH-L12
Case: Cooler Master Cosmos II
We have a set battery of benchmarks for Memory reviews. We have listed the applications we use for testing below.
- Memory Bandwidth Benchmark
- Latency Benchmark
- Cache Benchmark
