It has been quite some time since we have taken a look at memory from Crucial. They are still calling their performance memory Ballistix and now they have 3 different lines, Ballistix Sport, Ballistix Tactical and Ballistix Elite. Today we are checking out a quad channel Ballistix Elite kit (BLE4KIT4G3D1608DE1TX0). This kit contains four 4GB modules running at 1600MHz with timings of 8-8-8-24 at 1.5v. Read on to check out our unboxing and overview video.
A little over a year ago we took a look at our first Patriot Viper Xtreme memory kit in their 6GB DDR3-2000 kit. These kits are just awesome! Each module in the kit features 6 grams of copper at its core paired with an extruded aircraft-grade aluminum outer shield, which not only is going to keep the modules cool, but makes for a pretty cool look. Today we are taking a look a the Division 4 kit of the Viper Xtreme Series, which is designed specifically for Intel’s X79 platform and 2nd generation Core™ processors. We are checking out the PXQ316G1866ELQK kit, which is a 16GB kit running at 1866MHz with timings of 9-11-9-27 at 1.65V. Read on as we take these for a ride.
Our friends over at Patriot Memory have sent us one of their latest memory kits, the Division 4 Viper Xtreme DDR3 Quad Channel Memory Kit. This 16GB kit is a PC3-15000 kit so it is going to be running at 1866MHz. The timings are 9-11-9-27 at 1.65V. The Division 4 series kits are designed specifically for Intel’s X79 platform and 2nd generation Core™ processors. Like all Viper Xtreme kits these featurethe 6 gram copper core and aircraft-grade aluminum heatspreaders. Read on to check out our unboxing and overview video.
With Intel’s X79 chipset we started to see quad channel DDR3 memory. It is crazy to think that in just a short period of time we have gone from dual channel to quad channel memory. Not long after Intel released the X79 platform we started to see quad channel kits designed and certified specifically for the platform. Today we are taking a look at one such kit, the G.Skill RipjawsZ DDR3-2133 16GB quad channel kit (F3-17000CL9Q-16GBZH). This kit features four 4GB modules that run at 2133MHz with timings of 9-11-10-28. Read on as we take a look at our first quad channel memory kit.
It is not often that we do an unboxing of a memory kit, but since G.Skill has recently released their RipjawsZ Extreme Performance Quad-Channel Memory kits we have decided to show you what they are all about. Today we are checking out the F3-17000CL9Q-16GBZH kit. This quad-channel 16GB kit runs at 2133MHz with timings of 9-11-10-28 at 1.65V. These kits are made and certified exclusively for the Intel X79 platform. Read on to check out our unboxing and overview video!
Kingston has always been the memory that comes to mind when I think of enthusiast memory. Their HyperX line of memory has been their top of the line enthusiast memory and some of the first ever enthusiast memory to be released. Today we are going to be checking out their HyperX Genesis DDR3-1600 8GB Dual Channel Memory kit (KHX1600C9D3X2K2/8GX). This kit features Kingston’s newer heatspreaders and runs at 1600MHz with timings of 9-9-9-27 at 1.65V. This kit is the perfect starting kit for someone who is looking into dual channel memory. Read on as we take a look…
Our friends over at Kingston have just sent us a 4GB kit of their Limited Edition HyperX DDR3-1600 low latency memory (KHX1600C7D3X1K2/4GX). These modules are primarily being sold overseas (Russia/Eastern Europe). They run at 1600MHz and have a CAS latency of 7 with timings of 7-8-7-20 at 1.65V. Being that this kit only runs at 1600MHz and has low timings this should leave a lot of headroom for overclocking. Read on and see how far we can push these modules.
A little while ago we took a look at a 4GB dual channel Ballistix kit from Crucial. Today Crucial has sent us a 6GB triple channel kit of Ballistix and we are very eager to see how it performs. This 6GB kit runs at 1866MHz with timings of 9-9-9-24 at 1.65V. Just like the other kit we took a look at this kit features XMP profiles, Crucial’s new Ballisitx heatspreaders and on-board temperature sensors and monitoring software. Let’s check them out!
A little while ago we took a look at Patriot’s Viper Xtreme triple channel memory that is designed for Intel X58 systems. Today we are checking out the Viper Xtreme Division 2 Edition memory which is designed for Intel’s 2nd generation “Sandy Bridge” Core processors. This memory has been rigorously tested and validated on the Intel 6 Series platform to achieve maximum performance and stability. The Division 2 memory has all of the same features as the original Viper Xtreme memory like the 6 gram copper core and aircraft-grade aluminum heatspreaders. Today we will be putting the 8GB DDR3-1866 kit to the test.
DDR3 has really taken off in the past year and it only seemed like a little while ago 1333MHz DDR3 was the standard, but now it seems like 1600MHz DDR3 is now. While the 1600MHz memory is fine for most people us enthusiasts want the fastest memory possible for our system to run at its best. Today we will be looking at a very fast memory kit from Patriot. It is their Viper Xtreme PC3-16000 (2000MHz) 6GB triple channel kit with timings of 9-10-9-27. Let’s take a look at this kit and see what it can do!
