We’ve all seen different branded kits of memory, from memory that has the strangest heatsink design to SLI-ready memory. But what a lot of people haven’t really encountered before is AMD Ready memory. Today we’ll be looking at one of the few AMD Black Edition Ready Memory Kits, which work great with an AMD based system. Read on further to find out what unique AMD only software we used to help us along with the review.
The standard for DDR3 memory is still 1.5v, but most high performance memory has voltages far above that. Many earlier high performance DDR3 modules had a Vdimm of 1.9v-2.1v. It still amazes me that the memory manufacturers were able to make DDR3 memory run at DDR3-2000 and higher at 1.65v. Today I will be looking at yet another low voltage dual channel kit, this one by OCZ, their Platinum DDR3-1333 4GB kit. It runs with timings of 7-7-7-20, at Intel’s required 1.65v. And of course these modules sport OCZ’s shiny platinum heatspreaders. Will this memory take my i7/P55 to victory? Read on to see!
