On the last page we saw that there were some gains in 3D performance and memory bandwidth and moving to real world testing the findings show that boot times, load times and media conversion receive small benefits from the memory however gaming has a significant boost. In a game such as Shogun 2 our framerate increases by an average of 10fps as the faster memory allows the rest of the system to perform at a more optimal level. Also worth noting is that the temperature of our HyperX memory remains very close to DDR3-1600.
As a final test we decided to look at what the tightest timings were that we could achieve on these modules at the advertised 2400MHz, a common speed that most X79 motherboards offer as their maximum multiplier. With these particular sticks we were able to move to 10-11-10-27 while maintaining complete stability.
