Corsair G.Skill Mushkin and Patriot X79 Quad-Channel Memory Review - PCSTATS.com Corsair G.Skill Mushkin and Patriot X79 Quad-Channel Memory Review
Fri, Jan 20 2012 | 9:33AM | Filed under: Memory| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

The last G.Skill memory I looked at did quite well in the overclocking department and thankfully, this kit does not deviate from that path - the base speed of 2133 MHz was just the starting point for the kit. Making the jump to 2400 MHz, though, required some tweaking of the primary latencies and voltages. CAS latency was bumped to 10 with the tRCD bumped to 12 and the voltage to 1.67 V. The memory controller voltage was fine at 1.05 V with this configuration as seen by the long term (well, 7 hours at least) stability testing of the overclock. The higher speed, coupled with a decent CPU overclock, showed measurable performance gains in testing. The overclocking margin or headroom came in at 13+% or 281 MHz for the time spent tweaking the modules for maximum clocks without killing every day performance. This kit from G.Skill reached the highest overclocked speed in comparison to the other modules in this testing session."
