CSX Diablo3 PC3-16000 (DDR3 2000) 2GB kit
Synthetic Benchmark Results
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.
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.
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.
As both the CSX and Crucial kits make use of the D9GTR chips, I expected to see very similar results and as the benchmarks show, both kits perform pretty much on par, with the Crucial kit edging the runs in Everest and Cinebench but the Diablos making back some ground on SuperPI. It should, however, be noted that the Diablo kit is quite capable of running with tighter timings (8-8-8) as opposed to the 9-9-9 configuration used here, so I would expect the Diablo kit to come out on top. For the purposes of this review though, and the fact that CSX's stock settings are unknown (their website only shows overclocked settings), we used the 9-9-9 configuration to best compare the kit against its Crucial counterpart.
