Now that the Intel Core i7 family of processors is available for purchase it is time to start taking a look at various memory kits that have been designed just for the Intel Core i7 platform. One of the very first triple channel DDR3 memory kits that we got in to use on the Core i7 was the Kingston HyperX DDR3 2GHz triple channel memory kit. Read on to see how this performs and overclocks!
All said and done, the performance of this memory kit was impressive and it was great to see that it was overclocking beyond 2.1GHz with no extra voltage. Another thing that should be pointed out when it comes to performance is that no active cooling is required at 2GHz since the kit uses just 1.65V! I tested the memory inside the ThermalTake Spedo Advance chassis, which has good airflow, and when I touched the modules while playing Far Cry 2 they were just warm to the touch. Not what one would expect for some memory modules that are running at 2000MHz. It makes you wonder how fast these triple-channel kits will become in 2009 now that the Core i7 platform is here.
