Eight 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) Memory Kits For P67 Express, Rounded Up

G.Skill And Geil

G.Skill Ripjaws-X F3-12800CL7D-8GBXH

G.Skill was the only company to release a product specifically targeting the LGA 1155 market. That basically means it listened to the concerns of overclockers and labeled its RAM for 1.60 V and a standard memory ratio.

That means G.Skill also programmed XMP with those same limitations, at DDR3-1600 CAS 7-8-7-24. Like all of today’s modules, systems will detect these as DDR3-1333 CAS 9, and builders must either select the XMP value in the BIOS or configure the modules manually.

G.Skill memory carries a lifetime warranty.

Geil Evo Two GET38GB2200C9ADC

Golden Emperor appears to be one of the three companies that didn’t get the memo about base clock limitations for LGA 1155 platforms. As we stated previously, though, the hardware is still suitable for Intel's newer platform. Had the firm altered this model to work in lock-step with Sandy Bridge's altered BCLK behavior, it might have called these DDR3-2133 at 1.60 V, rather than DDR3-2200 at 1.65 V.

Selecting the XMP-2200 profile in our motherboard’s BIOS caused these modules to be configured as DDR3-2133 CAS 9. Builders can expect their systems to boot at DDR3-1333 CAS 9 prior to that adjustment.

Geil provides a full lifetime replacement warranty on all of its branded DRAM products.

    Note - Ram performance reviews have been redundant for several years now.

    Please in future just review ram purely on how 'cool' it looks in your case/motherboard.

    Saves you and the reader their time/life.

    Amazed at how ram manufacturers still get away with tarting up standard ram and charging x% more for it with just a chunk of metal on it.

    As the real world difference here is so small can we see performance ram verses el cheapo ram to see if it is worth spending the big bucks on memory, or (as I suspect) show that you are better off splashing the cash on cpu/gpu.

    Thanks

    That was a nice review, so if you are planning a build then make sure you have one of these kits on it. I am one of these persons that can wait to save, and spen a little bit more of money for something that is worth, but I don't go too crazy spending all of it.

    So we can say the Kingston is the average in speed/value/overclocking,I was expecting a bit mroe from Corsair,and RipjawX is not staying behind showing pure solid results.

    Could you possibly review a mixed kit please, as far as I am concerned there should be no need to have to use a fixed kit if they meet ddr3 standards.

    However there is a growing wave of people that believe the marketing bull which states that you need to use kits that come from the same box, i.e. a 2 stick kit + a single stick cannot (according to some) run in triple channel the same way that a 3 stick kit would.
