A-Data grabs the high speed RAM crown

A-Data might not be the first company you think about when you purchase RAM, which is why you can be forgiven for not noticing they sell a dual channel DDR3 kit @ 2200 MHZ with timings of 8:8:8:24 1T at the recommended 1.65V.  The Guru of 3D even managed to hit 2350MHz by bumping the voltage to 1.7 and could see higher speeds by lowering the timings.

Its a RAM of a different colour

Do you have a friend or family member that thinks they are a tweaker, when in fact all they are is a serial hardware murderer?  Someone who swears they've never touched the BIOS settings even when you are looking at a DIMM that was overvolted to the point it has almost soldered its self to the motherboard?  You could put a password and a case lock on, but you could also try the Elixir 6GB 1600MHz kit.  Elixir, or Nanya specifically, makes chips that conform to JEDEC standards.  No matter what you do to these DIMMs, there is a maximum speed you will hit a ceiling at and not

Slap an extra 133MHz on there

The new target to aim for in the land of DDR3 is 2133MHz, thanks to Kingston's HyperX T1 4GB DDR3-2133 dual channel kit.  That's PC3-17066
for those of you keeping score.  At $464 is is a big investment for 4GB of RAM, but it is the fastest kit on the market right now.  Overclocking results saw 2250 MHz at 9-9-9-24 timings, though Pure Overclock admits it was a little unstable and 2200MHz was their highest stable overcl

iXBT Labs explores the new world of Lynnfield's onboard memory controller and its abilities and disabilities.  For instance the controller can do more with single bank modules than with the more common dual bank DIMMs.  They examine just how increasing the frequency of the memory compares with increasing the amount of memory available to the processor.  Drop by for some interesting results; it seems the days of the 32bit operating system were just yesterday, but it seems that they ended a while

Sector 5 will make your P55 come alive

Patriot has revamped their Viper line to accommodate Lynnfield, dual channel kits like the Patriot Viper II 'Sector 5'  are popping up all over.  A speed of 2GHz @ 8-8-8-24 gives you
plenty of raw bandwidth to keep your i5/i7 system happy and while Bjorn3D could only get a 136MHz overclock out of the DIMMs, it is possible a different motherboard might squeeze a bit more performance out of this kit.

So what if it is dual channel - 2.4GHz @ 9-9-9-24!

Sure, Legit Reviews did have to push the voltage over spec to 1.75V and bump the QPI up to 1.35 but they hit a huge memory overclock.  It wasn't even necessary to go that far to get to 2200MHz; they simply asked for it from the DIMMs and they provided, no voltage tweaks or any other BIOS tinkering needed.  Read about Kingston's insane HyperX DDR3 4GB 2133MHz Memory, but

FREMONT, Calif., Sept. 15, 2009 - Corsair, a worldwide leader in high-performance computer memory, power supplies and flash memory products, including solid-state drives, today announced that both 4GB and 8GB Dominator memory solutions have passed Intel's XMP-Ready certification for the newly-introduced Core i7-870 and Core i7-860 CPUs.

The 8GB Dominator GT 1600MHz CAS 8 (CMD8GX3M4A1600C8) is part of Corsair's award-winning Dominator memory solutions. It is qualified and guaranteed to run at a frequency of 1600MHz with tight timings of 8-8-8-24 at a voltage of 1.65V.

Not just for AMD fans anymore

With the arrival of Lynnfield comes a new interest in dual channel DDR3.  Many may opt for a pair of 3GB DIMMs, or four 2GB DIMMs there are quite a few that will settle for 4GBs of total system memory, especially if it is fast.  Take Kingston's  HyperX KHX1600C8D3K2
which is designed to run at 1600MHz, but was easily pushed to over 2000MHz by Overclockers Club.  The latencies and voltages had to be changed so little that it seems the memory multiplier lock that stopped the
