The Test System
Before we take a look at the performance numbers, let’s take a brief look at the test system that was used. All testing was done using a fresh install of Windows 7 Professional 64-bit and benchmarks were completed on the desktop with no other software programs running.
- Intel Core i7 4770k Quad-Core Haswell CPU
- Stock Socket 1150 CPU Cooler
- 16GB Corsair Vengeance Pro 1866MHz Memory
- GIGABYTE Z87X-UD4H Motherboard

Intel Z87/LGA1150 Platform
The Intel Z87 platform that we used to test these memory modules was running the GIGABYTE Z87X-UD4H motherboard with BIOS version F7 that came out on 08/05/2013. The processor used, the Intel Core i7 4770k, was just using the stock frequency of 3.5GHz with turbo boost enabled, which can boost it up to 3.9GHz.
Up next I will run a couple benchmarks against these modules to see how well they perform!
