High frequency, low voltage RAM from OCZ

The 4GB OCZ Blade ST 2000MHz Low Voltage DDR3 kit
has quite a bit going for it, from its 9-9-9-24 timings @ 1.65v to the ease it adds to those looking to overclock an LGA1156 CPU.  A little tweaking to the BCLK is much easier when your RAM is happy to run at those speeds, removing it as a cause of instability when you are overclocking.  Drop by BenchMark Reviews to see these DIMMs in action.

G.Skill has a Flare with AM3 targeted DDR3

The G.Skill FLARE PC3-16000
kit
is a pair of 2GB DIMMs running at 2000MHz and running you about $180.  The high price is the penalty you face for trying to grab some of the fastest RAM available.  Once OC3D popped open the kit the AM3 branding seemed a little off as no matter what they tried they could not get these DIMMs runnin

Dual Channel memory doesn't mean you have to go small

Subject: Memory | September 30, 2010 - 03:44 PM |

Picking up a Core i3, i5 or certain i7 CPUs does limit you to dual channel memory if you use an H55 based board and many feel that going that route limits your RAM.  Really, the difference between triple channel and dual channel RAM is minuscule and
there is no reason you can't have large amounts of RAM on a dual channel system.  G.Skill makes this obvious with their 8GB Trident 2000 MHz DD

Pushing the DDR3 spec

DDR3 is not really that old but has finally overtaken DDR2 for the first choice in memory for new systems.  Just like its predecessors, as the DDR3 standard matures manufacturers can get higher frequencies out of their DIMMs and of course charge a premium for those high speed kits.  Kingston has been rather forceful in pushing DDR3 to its current limitations and they have just released two new kits.  The highest end kit hit 2.5GHz @ 9-11-9-27 during the quick overclock

Crucial senses a disturbance in the force; temperature sensing DIMMs

Xtreme Computing had a chance to play with Crucial's new Ballistix MOD Temperature-sensing DDR3-1600 @ 8-8-8-24.  They have the usual and fairly effective Ballistix heatspreaders, with the orange branding sticker in evidence and they can inform you of their current temperature using the Crucial MOD Utility.  In their overclocking tests they could not breach 1820mhz
@ 1.658v though with the temperature sensor some may be tempted to go past that voltage to see if they can be pushed further.

Charting the success of memory overclocks

HWBot is a board that keeps track of the successes that people have had overclocking various components and the benchmarks generated by those overclocks.  MADSHRIMPS delves into one particular component, the RAM and looks at the three variables that generate the most pertinent to overclocking RAM, the Frequency, tCL and tRCD.  There is a bit of math you need to follow in order to see how they arrived at the ratings on the charts at the end of the article, but then again if you want to get the b

Own a Clarkdale? Choose your RAM carefully.

X-bit Labs wanted to see what the integrated memory controller on Clarkdale chips is capable of and so tested it with RAM at speeds of 1333MHz, 1600MHz and 2000MHz with two different timings at each speed.  As it turns out, the difference in performance between the three speeds was rather small, while the price of RAM kits rises noticeably.  When they tried overclocking the Core i5-655K the results became more interesting and rather damning for the 1600MHz kit.  Their findings
