    Seems even lower speed corsair RAM still pulls ahead on a lot of the tests. I think ill stick to corsair.
    Current specs:
    CPU: Intel i5 3570k Overclocked @ 4.6Ghz GPU: MSI Twin Frozr 7850 @ 1000Mhz Cooler: Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 RAM: 16Gb Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz

    very happy to see tthat hexus using a far better platform with intergrated graphics - the AMD A series APU`s respond well to faster ram , far more than the intel kit

    I think I will stick to Samsung green low profile RAM sticks and overclock the heck out of them!

    More seriously I thinkk Kingston have completely lost the plot here. It is not that the RAM is bad, it is just overpriced, over-engineered and outperformed.

    Of course, the sad thing about using FM2 for all the tests is that the IMC doesn't scale as well as Intel's, so you don't get to see the differences above 1333MHz in the synthetic benchmarks due to the limitations of the APU.

    OTOH, IGP gaming is pretty much the definition of a real world test where memory bandwidth is the limiting factor, so the FM2 platform makes inherent sense as a real world metric of the difference between speed grades of RAM...

    I suppose it'd be too much to ask that synthetic tests were done on the Intel rig and gaming tests on the AMD rig....?

    Interesting, but not unsurprising, to see the 16GB capacity made no difference in gaming compared to 8GB, but I'd love to know if RAM capacity would make a difference at the lower end - it'd be fascinating to see 2GB v 4GB v 8GB in an IGP gaming test...

    Re: Reviews - Kingston HyperX Predator DDR3-1,866 memory

    The daft thing is, the Kingston 8GB (2 x 4GB) HyperX Predator DDR3 2400MHz DIMM CL11 XMP - £39.99 @ Dabs, or £41.12 @ Amazon, cheapest 2400MHz, 2 x 4GB sticks their is, for me personally I woudn't really need more than 8GB of RAM for everyday use, such as gaming etc. >> http://www.dabs.com/products/kingsto...-xmp-88H6.html

    Corsair Memory Vengeance 16GB DDR3 1866 MHz Dual Channel Desktop - £69.79 Inc VAT @ Scan >> http://www.scan.co.uk/products/16gb-...-10-11-10-30-?

    I like the G Skill 2x 4GB PC3-19200 DDR3 2400MHz Gaming Memory Kit - somewhat expensive @ £65.00, at least the red fins come off easy so you can use any cooler you want >> http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/B007V9RXFI

    Re: Reviews - Kingston HyperX Predator DDR3-1,866 memory

    Anyone suggest a winner between 8gb the Kingston Hyper X predator 1866 with CL 9-11-9-27, Ballistix tactical 1600 with CL 8-8-8-24 or G.Skill Ripsaws 1600 with CL 9-9-9-24... cost is £30 give or take.

    Will I be able to loosen the timings on the Ballistix to cl 9 and get better 1866 performance? I've heard some people says the Ballistixs are unstable. The rest of the rig will be Gigabyte GA-F2A85XM-D3H with A10 5700.

    Many thanks
