Kingston HyperX 4GB 2400MHz CL9 DDR3 Memory Review

Postby Apoptosis » Fri Apr 09, 2010 10:04 am

The Kingston HyperX 4GB DDR3 2400MHz Memory is a kit of two 2GB DDR3-2400MHz CL9 SDRAM memory modules that are feature the highest clocked Intel XMP settings from any manufacturer. You just pop the pair of Kingston HyperX 4GB DDR3 2400MHz memory modules in your Intel enthusiast system, enable XMP profiles and reboot. When the system comes back online you'll be running at 2400MHz with some extreme memory bandwidth!

Today I have quite the treat, Kingston's fastest set of DDR3, their brand spanking new HyperX DDR3-2400C9. In the press release they claim it to be the fastest Intel-certified memory in the world. What this means is that Intel has certified this kit to run on their P55 platform at the rated speeds. In short this is as close to an overclocking guarantee as it gets. The Intel document with Core i7 XMP certified modules can be found here. Keep in mind that these sticks are rated to run on LGA1156 Core i7 processors like the Core i7 860 and 870..

What strikes me the most here is this result:

It's almost acting like DDR memory. Meaning that one timing can really throw the performance off substantially. I assume that since WinRAR doesn't mind because its benchmark is dependent upon speed and CAS settings. Is that correct?
