    Ah, would have been nice to see the 2.8GHz kit in action.

    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."

    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Shows little real-world benefit over cheaper RAM
    This is a pretty damning indictment and one that surely doesn't make it worthy of 3 stars?

    There's marginal gain over 1600MHz in the 3DMark11 test as well, that's the market they'd be aiming for with these as well.

    you can just buy cheap 1600mhz ram and OC to 1866 at stock timings and it will perform better than this sloppy overpriced rubbish

    Re: Reviews - G.Skill TridentX DDR3-2,400 Ivy Bridge memory

    It's a pity around 20 games wasn't used for the test, games like Crysis 3, Hitman Absolution, Sleeping Dogs, Civilisation 5, Skyrim, Alan Wake, Saints Row 5 etc etc, not sure it's fully conclusive.

    I've got a few sticks of ram including the ones you used, once I've got my haswell rig setup, I'll run a few tests at 1600@9-9-9-24 and 2400@10-12-12-31

    Interesting, a few years ago I did a similar test with an AMD rig using Crysis Benchmark over 5 runs per bench, taking the average.

    Graphics Card: GTX 295

    CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition @ 3.6GHz (3.8Ghz = add extra 2 fps)

    Ram: OCZ Blade Series 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 PC3-16000 Triple Channel (Tested at various timings using 2x2GB) / OCZ Platinum 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 PC3-10666C7 1333MHz Dual Channel (SAME RESULTS)

    Crysis 1600mhz 7-7-7-24 = 54.98 fps

    Crysis 1333mhz 7-7-7-24 = 54.43 fps

    Crysis 1333mhz 6-6-6-24 = 54.87 fps

    Crysis 1333mhz 9-9-9-24 = 52.98 fps
