G.Skill Ares 16GB 2133MHz Kit Review

CineBench R11.5

CineBench relying so heavily upon the CPU, even more than the memory, gives a fairly standard score. Although the faster kits naturally end up on top and the Ares slots nicely in to second place.



Whereas CineBench prefers super-fast RAM almost regardless of timings, wPrime95 is much happier with low CAS. The 32 million place test is all much of a muchness, but similarly to PC Mark Vantage in the big 1 billion place test the Ares slots in just behind the CAS9 RipjawsX and Genesis.
