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 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!

    16GB, What a waste of money. Get real and buy 8GB, you’ll never use 16GB. Main RAM bandwidth doesn’t affect games much at all, Intel tried that trick with Rambus and it didn’t work.

    I bought an 8G kit to test. On a Asus Croshair v Formula board and 4ghz 8 core AMD and Sapphire 7870 card these will run excellent at 8-8-8-22 1T 1866mhz timings. Boots insane fast. No latency or lag in any games and runs rock solid stable…
