PC Perspective was at MSI's Master Overclocking Event in Los Vegas during CES2011, but that was simply one stop along a long road for MSI and the overclockers.  At one MSI MOA event, the Benelux qualifier, Madshrimps spoted an interesting set of DIMMs from Kingston, a triplet of 2250MHz 2GB sticks at 9-11-9-27.  They quickly proved that anyone using an older Bloomfield CPU will never see the full speed of these DIMMs thought they will be able to tighten the timings nicely, you need a Gulftown before your CPUs uncore will be able to keep up with these DIMMs.

"At the latest MSI MOA Benelux qualifier we were allowed to play with MSI's Xpower board, some 980X ES CPUs and some pretty high specced Kingston rams. The 2250Mhz CL9 triple channel kit seemed very interesting for a spin in the Madshrimps Lab. Could these blue beauties come close to the almighty Corsair Hyper IC based GTX2s ? What's the use for such a high MHz kit for a daily user ? Is this kit Bloomfield friendly ? A lot of questions warped through my brain. Time to open the box and find some answers."
