Testing out Silicon Power's new DDR3 kit
Subject: Memory | December 8, 2010 - 07:29 PM | Jeremy Hellstrom
Silicon Power have been around for 7 years and mostly have provided CF card but are extending their expertise to SSDs and RAM. In this particular review it is the XPower DDR3 2000 RAM, nothing to do with MSI even with a name similar to a particular Big Bang series motherboard. The stats are right, a pair of XMP profiles will have you running at either DDR3-1800 @ 9-9-9-24 or DDR3-2000 @ 9-9-9-27, at least in theory. What Bjorn3D found was that the XMP profiles would not work properly for them and they had to manually set up the DIMMs. Not the most auspicious start but in the end the DIMMs did run solidly at their specified speeds, it just took a little work.
"Today we are reviewing Silicon Power’s high speed dual channel XPower DDR3 2000 (PC3-16000) RAM, compatible with
Intel Core i3, i5, and i7 platforms, and has a CAS of 9. It is part of their overclocking lineup, designed for
enthusiasts. Other models in their lineup include DDR3 1600 (CAS 8) and DDR3 1800/2133 (CAS 9). Our review sample
comes with 2 sticks, each 2GB."
