Kingston's new LoVo DIMMs are flexible and green

Kingston's HyperX PC3 1866MHz LoVo DIMMs seem a little strange at first glance and not just because of the green heatspreaders.  It seems counterintuitive that a HyperX module, billed as Kingston's fastest product line should also be environmentally conscious.  It does make sense when you realize that the DIMMs have more that one JEDEC spec.  The first XMP profile runs the DIMMs at 1.2

Hercules and the RAM; Return of the Kingmax

Before you dismiss Kingmax as a non-player in the RAM industry, you have to realize that their downfall happened due to a slow adoption of DDR, in the days of SDRAM they were, well, King.  They have returned, the Kingmax Hercules PC3-17600 represents the higher end of DDR3.  Clocked out of the package at 2200MHz @ 10-10-10-30 2T the frequency is unarguably high even if the timings look relaxed.  Of course, to most enthusiasts this screams for an overclock or at least a tightening of the timings and Tweaktown could not resist and

The Mushkin Ridgeback 998827 PC3 12800 kit is 3x2GB DDR3 DIMMs with a rather spiny look to them thanks to the integral heat spreaders.  Natively they run at 8-8-8-24 but there is a bit of overhead left on these DIMMs, enough to take them over 2000MHz.  OCC hit 2049MHz on their test system though the timings were reduced to 8-10-9-29 and th

Have a P55 that needs more memory bandwidth and are sporting a thick wallet?

The Patriot Viper II Sector 5 2000MHz 4GB DDR3 kit sports timings of 8-8-8-24 and a price of $55 per gigabyte.  If that seems a little steep to you it is because that is exactly what it is, however that is the penalty you pay for RAM that runs at 2GHz.  The extra bandwidth did show up across the boards in the testing Legit Reviews did; though perhaps

G.Skill's new DDR-1600 ECO Kit 4 GB might not offer the fastest frequency on the market, what it does offer are low timings of 7-8-7-24 and a voltage of 1.35V to keep the heat down.  That isn't even as far as it will go on those stock settings as techPowerUp!

G.Skill hits 2200MHz, and it will run you 10 cents a MHz

At $225 for 4GB, the G.Skill Pi Series PC3-17600 is a little pricey and at DDR3-2200 speeds and 7-10-10-28  timings it is more than a little fast.  Designed to work as dual channel RAM for a Core i7 860 or 870, and with support on a number of P55 boards, this is definitely a kit aimed at those looking for the top performance around.  The kit comes with G.Skill's Turbulence Cooling Fan, a shroud type fan that attaches

Black edition RAM?

The OCZ Black Edition DDR3-1600 memory kit is supposed to be designed specifically for AMD Black Edition CPUs.  The colour certainly matches and the badge on the heatspreaders are a nice touch but it is really the performance that matters, which is what Benchmark Reviews set out to determine.   8-8-8-24 timings are relatively low, but to refer to RAM that uses the standard DDR3 voltage, 1.65V, as low voltage does seem to be a stretch.  Black Edition
