G.Skill Ares 16GB 2133MHz Kit Review

Test Setup and PC Mark Vantage

G.Skill Ares 16GB 2133MHz Kit Review

Test Setup

G.Skill Ares 16GB 2133MHz 11-11-11-29-2N
MSI P67A-GD65
Intel Core i5-2500K @ 4GHz
EVGA GTX570
Noctua NH-D14
Cougar CM1000 PSU
Windows 7 64 Bit

Timings

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.
