Scaling to 2.1GHz

Here they are on a Gigabyte EX58-UD5, placed into the white-coloured slots. A built-in XMP profile makes it (relatively) easy to set them up to 2GHz, yet you need to navigate past the quagmire of Core i7 memory overclocking considerations before the frequency is achieved.

Here's the magical 2,000MHz speed.

And up to 2,100MHz with no increase in voltage.

Head back to the full review, published on Monday, to see if the modules offer a better all-round deal than the Corsair. Folks looking to invest in the ultimate system may find it of particular interest.

Please can you ascertain in the full review if this Kingston CAS8 DDR2000mhz is superior at stock speeds (XMP) than Corsairs CAS8 Dominator GT; how much each overclocks too; how agressive one can be with timing settings etc, and also how much does their more expensive CAS7 Dominator GT give in terms of REAL Performance compared to Kingston's HyperX T1.

Finally it would be useful to have as a benchmark a comparison performance against the much more easily obtainable (in the UK) Corsair 6GB 1600mhz CAS8 which can be had for as little as £172inc next day Delivery from Novatech!

My initial feelings are that everyone should still be buying 1,333-1,600mhz RAM as the performance gains are negligible for the price paid.
not asking for much then lozza :)
Well just a little!:rolleyes:
