    Coming in around the $220~ mark this kit is extremely good value,

    I don't often play with the consumer parts, it is normally the more enthusiast part, but the performance of this little kit is surprising.

    TEST PLATFORM
    • Gigabyte P55A-UD7
    • Intel Lynnfield 870
    • Gigabyte 6850
    • Corsair AX1200
    • Corsair Force 40GB

    Just to start with i took a look at what these are capable of at some stock settings with some low voltages as the low voltage kits seem to be popular with systems builders.. stock settings are no problems at a low1.4v

    BANDWIDTH COMPARSON @ STABLE SETTINGS

    Now it is often looked upon badly at loosening off TRCD much past 8/9 but with a kit like this I think clocks like 9-10-9-24 makes sense. This kit is going to benefit from some extra bandwidth and most real world applications only care about bandwidth and not tight primaries or subs. Lets look at some bandwidth comparison with this kit. This kit is P55 and AMD targeted, so on the Lynnfield side of things it would be nice if we could raise out BCLK a bit at 2:10 to get that uncore up a fraction.

    RECOMMENDED STABLE SETTINGS

    This is the settings I like on the Intel platform, I would run this in my 24/7 rig.

    2000 9-10-9-24 2T 1.5 vdimm, You might find some kits will do 2050 or 2100 easily. My kit will LINX also at 2050 but then I need to use higher VTT, so I will choose 2000 9-10-9-24.

    Even after LinX for an hour with these sticks at 1.6 volts they don't get much above 30 degrees celcius in a room of 23 degrees celcius.

    It is worth noting this kit performs much better 2T, the bandwidth loss is minimal but the gains in MHz are high. Once going past about 900 MHz dropping from 1T to 2T will really let these sticks open up and show what they are made of.

    cheers - I've been wondering how well the ripjaws would OC :thumbup:

    EDIT: wonder if there is a 3x4GB kit that clocks just as good :)

    Are these available in Aus yet?

    I can only find F3-12800CL7Q-8GBRM, not sure what the difference is?

    EDIT - thats a 4 x 2GB kit rather than the 2 x 4GB...

    The information provided is great, but I'm wondering if 1,920px × 1,200px images are actually necessary.

    Looks nice. Where did you get the 220 from? Overseas or wholesaler price?

    haha bro you know for average user, cas level means not much, timings mean not much, raw MHZ is much more important than all primary timings

    i would run 9-11-9 or something for high mhz over a tight 6-7-6 style setup... these PSC style 7-10 and 6-9 kits make alot of sense for a gaming rig or performance workstation

    very interesting results here...

    I have added some Clarkdale vs Gulftown.. for a couple of game benchmarks Crysis and Heaven...

    The Gulftown is the high end 980X with some high end Hyper Elpida modules clocked at 2000 MHz 7-7-7-20, with a Gigabyte 6850..

    The Clarkdale is a very cheap part, on Gigabytes H55N-USB3 board with the ripjaws clocked at 950 8-9-8-24 with a Gigabyte 6850..

    So there is no competition here right, the over $1000 980X will wipe the floor?

    My clarkdale "gaming" system is
    G.Skill Ripjaws 2x4GB 1600 7-8-7-24 clocked at 1900 8-9-8-24
    Gigabyte H55N-USB3
    Clarkdale @ 4GHz
    Gigabyte 6850 @ stock
    Windows 7 64Bit

    there is NOTHING in these results... i think resutls speak for themselves.. for gaming platform think cheaper with p55, clarkdale and some 2x2 or 2x4gb kits or AMD 890fx... for synthetic benchmarks, think x58
