X58 DDR3 Memory Roundup June 2011

X58 DDR3 Memory Roundup June 2011

X58 DDR3 Memory Roundup June 2011 featuring Patriot, Corsair, Crucial, Kingston and G.Skill Memory Kits


When overclocking our memory we take two approaches. In the first we find out what the highest speed is when using the stock timings and voltage. In the second scenario we open up the timings to change and run all of the modules at 1.65v.

  Stock OC
Stock Timings
Looser Timings
1600 9-9-9-24-2T 1.5v 1800 9-9-9-24-2T 2030 8-10-9-24-1T
1600 8-8-8-24-1T 1.65v 1824 8-8-8-24-1T 1866 9-10-9-27-2T
1600 8-8-8-24-2T 1.6v 1788 8-8-8-24-2T 1932 9-9-9-27-2T
HyperX t1
1600 9-9-9-27-2T 1.65v 1776 9-9-27-2T 1866 10-10-9-27-2T
Viper Xtreme
2000 9-11-9-27-2T 1.65 2133 9-11-9-27-2T 2208 10-11-10-27-2T

So, overall we get some decent increases from each set of modules which will allow enthusiasts to further enhance their systems if desired. Particular highlights are the Corsair sticks which increase by over 400MHz from stock and the Patriot modules which are stable over 2200MHz. It is worth noting though that the Kingston modules are impacted by the fact that 24GB kits rarely OC to extreme levels on X58… we will have to see if that changes on the next generation.

To test performance at our maximum overclocks we have created a custom test which stresses the memory and system with the time taken to complete the test recorded and documented. The test includes the time taken to boot into Windows, open a number of applications when at the desktop environment (including Adobe Photoshop, Premier Pro and various other demanding programs) and then complete a 1080p encoding test. The results are as follows:
