Memory Reviews

Kingston needs no introduction to most of you as they are well known among computer enthusiasts for providing high-performance memory and storage products. Kingston recently informed us that their HyperX family of performance memory stands ready for use in Z97 chipset based motherboards. They kindly offered up a 16 GB kit (4X4 GB) of their HyperX Beast DDR3-2400 MHz to try out on the new chipset, so that’s exactly what we’ll do. Specifically, the kit in hand is part# KHX24C11T3K4/16X and boasts redesigned heatspreaders and a rather impressive set of specifications. Let’s get started!

G.Skill is clearly one of the most popular memory manufacturers, especially among computer enthusiasts, gamers and overclockers. At Overclockers we once again have a chance to check how much G.Skill has to offer as we test the TridentX 16GB DDR3-2133 CL9 memory kit. The TridentX memory series is designed for the most demanding users like extreme overclockers, so there is no place for cheap parts. You can expect to receive a high end product which you paid for.

If you have been around computers for a long time, then the VisionTek name probably conjures up thoughts of video cards. Actually, that’s not such a bad thought as VisionTek used to be one of the “go-to” names in the video card industry. I owned several of their video cards back in the day, but admittedly, it was quite some time ago. VisonTek has branched out since then and now offers enthusiast level memory, SSDs, and of course, video cards as an AMD partner. Today, we’ll be looking at one of their branch-out products in the form of a Red Label DDR3-2133 2×4 GB memory kit. VisionTek has been working hard to get the attention of computer enthusiasts once again, so let’s find out if this memory kit will help propel them a little deeper into that market.

Well, we brought you two of the higher speed kits in the past. Neither of them did well in testing due to their astronomical prices. Sure, they reached mind bending frequencies, but that alone is not enough to make a reasonable person consider them. With the G.Skill TridentX kit we’re looking at today, now we’ve gone to the other extreme, with a kit rated at DDR3-1600 but with extra tight timings. Let’s find out how it performs!

At Overclockers, we rarely present cheaper, more standard products, but not all users need pricey high-end memory. For all who are searching for cheaper RAM, I wish to present Super Talent 8GB DDR3-1600 kit. Let’s take a look at Super Talent memory and find out if it meets your expectations.

We recently published the ADATA XPG DDR3-2800 memory review which consisted of a memory kit based on single-sided Hynix MFR IC. Even though memory clock is high and modules are overclocking really good, overall performance on those modules is lower than expected. Today I wish to present ADATA XPG DDR3-2600 also based on Hynix MFR IC, but it’s double sided and gives us 16 GB total.

Single-sided Hynix MFR ICs have been making the rounds through various manufacturers recently. I didn’t give G.Skill a pass for them when they came through last time. They just don’t have the performance to go with the MHz due to timing compromises to make it to these kinds of frequencies. ADATA is here to give it a try this time. Let’s hope they reverse the performance sacrifices made for the MHz. Hey, if nothing else, MFR kits are always fun to see how far they can be pushed!

Today we’re going to have a look at an insanely-spec’ed memory kit, G.Skill’s high frequency, 2×4 GB DDR3-2933 TridentX kit. It is designed for one thing – hitting extremely high frequencies on the Intel Haswell platform. Of course, people looking to buy such a kit want to know how it performs too, so we’ll look at that for you as well.

Today we bring you the latest ADATA XPG V1.0 memory line – DDR3-2133X. The memory came as a 2 x 4 GB kit, which is enough for nearly everything so it should satisfy most gamers and computer enthusiasts for whom this product is designed.

We’re back with another high speed G.Skill RAM kit review. This one is rated DDR3-2600 at a relatively tight CAS latency of 10 (full timings 10-12-12-31) and standard 1.65 V rating and model # F3-2600C10D-8GTXD. Can it overclock as well as their DDR3-2666 kit? Well, that’s what we’re here to find out.
