G.Skill Ares 16GB 2133MHz Kit Review
G.Skill Ares 16GB 2133MHz 11-11-11-29-2N
Intel Core i5-2500K @ 4GHz
Cougar CM1000 PSU
Windows 7 64 Bit
Sadly being only .05v away from the maximum DIMM voltage, and the lack of overclocking options available on the P67 chipset, the Ares wasn't able to run at tighter timings at all. Obviously Sandy-E and potentially Ivy Bridge have more tweaking available, but the LGA1155 isn't the most overclockable memory controller around.
PC Mark Vantage
Considering that the G.Skill Trident in our graph was rated at 2500MHz CAS9, the Ares performs very well indeed in comparison. The Genesis just about edges it in some tests, but regardless the Ares certainly has a lot of performance in PC Mark Vantage.
