Corsair XMS3 DHX PC3-12800 (DDR3-1600) 4GB Kit

Synthetic Benchmark Results

Everest
 
Everest is an information & diagnostic utility complete with a benchmark utility suitable for testing the read, write and latency performance of the memory subsystem. Each of these benchmarks were performed a total of 5 times, with the highest and lowest scores being discarded and an average calculated from the remaining 3.
 
Everest Memory Read
 
Everest Memory Write
 
Everest Memory Latency
 
 
Cinebench
 
Cinebench 10 is a benchmarking tool based on the powerful 3D software Cinema 4D. The suite uses complex renders to gauge the performance of the entire PC system in both single-core and multi-core modes. Testing was performed a total of 5 times, with the highest and lowest results being omitted and an average created from the remaining 3 results.
 
Cinebench 1x
 
Cinebench 4x
 
 
SuperPI
 
SuperPI is the benchmark of choice for many overclockers. It's lightweight to download and can give a quick indication on how good a system is at number crunching. Once again, testing was performed a total of 5 times, with an average being calculated from the middle three results.
 
SuperPI 1m
 
SuperPI 16m
 
 
Result Observations
 
At its stock speed of 1600mhz, the Corsair XMS3 DHX kit falls behind the higher-clocked Crucial and CSX kits in the Everest memory benchmarks. This is obviously expected, as these particular benchmarks are not affected by the quantity of ram (2GB vs 4GB) but only its speed. However, as we move on to the Cinebench and SuperPI 1m tests, the difference in results is less prominent.
 
With the XMS3 kit overclocked to DDR3-2000, the tables turn. With a speed now equalling that of the other kits on test, the XMS3 kit is able to take the crown in both SuperPI, Everest and Cinebench.

"Fancy a 4GB DDR3 kit capable of running at 2000mhz? Corsair's affectionately named TW3X4G1600C9DHXNV kit may just well be what you're after."

That stuff is truly awesome.. 4GB just overclocking 400Mhz with no voltage increase or timing loosening. 4GB DDR3 that reaches 2000MHz that is by the way!!

I don't think that is too expensive as it is really. It's dear but it's also possibly one of the very best!

Nice review m8. Great clocking ram which is not the norm with Corsair - maybe the tide has changed!
