To that end, we got the first kit of Triple Channel DDR3 to achieve the 2000 MHz mark. Kingston technologies fielded the first kit of Triple Channel DDR3 capable of hitting 2000MHz within the allowed 1.65v RAM memory voltage limit on Core i7. Nay sayers said it couldn't be done. We're here to tell you it has been done. Kingston knocked one out of the park with their HyperX KHX16000D3K3/3GX 3GB kit capable of running 2000MHz with the rated timings of 9-9-9-27 at 1.65v.
Not only did they knock it out of the park, they're using a loaded bat. Intel has improved the XMP profile on the new X58 boards and what was previously a nightmare, running DDR3 High Speed, has now become a simple matter of enabling an XMP (Extreme Memory Profile) and rebooting. Yes, you read it right. Pop it in the slot, set the profile, reboot, and enjoy smoking fast speed!
