Benchmark Results

Moving on to the benchmark results. Here you’ll see the actual performance of the overclocking results through benchmarks. Note that these are memory performance-only benchmarks and thus do not give an indication of the system as a whole.

Read, write and copy speeds were tested with Lavalys Everest. The Integer and Float memory performance was tested with SiSoft Sandra.

As we can see the DDR3-1734 CL6-8-6-20 setting is the best performing. This RAM probably has some overclocking potential, reaching well over DDR3-2200 with looser timing. For AMD this is definitely a top-performance set too.

Pricing and Availability

In Europe the KHX2133C9AD3T1K2/4GX kit retails for €110.- and is widely available. At the moment DDR3-2000 CL9 RAM is available for €60.- so the Kingston kit is simply overpriced for its current market. The cheapest DDR3-2133 CL9 kits retail for about €95.- so the price discrepancy for just 133MHz is quite high and probably not maintainable.

Comparing other RAM

Comparing this RAM to two previously reviewed kits, the Kingston set pushes the limit a few MHz higher than even the Mach Xtreme RAM. The GeIL Ultra Plus DDR3-2000 CL9 and Mach Xtreme DDR3-2133 CL9 roughly have the same price; so in the end it’s your aesthethical and brand preference which should matter when deciding in this price range for RAM kits.
