DDR3 is getting faster, and now that we are seeing DIMMs reaching the 1800MHz range, most boards actually need to be overclocked to reach those speeds. Without one of the more overclocking friendly boards, you probably won't be able to hit full speed. X-bit Labs had the chance to try two new modules, and contrast them to the three they have previously seen in the same speed range with a little help from an X38 board.
"More and more memory makers start designing DDR3 SDRAM solutions for overclockers. In our new article we are going to
introduce to you DDR3-1800 from Cell Shock and DDR3-1866 from Patriot."
