We're going to ignore the 2400MHz XMP profile and focus just upon the 2666MHz XMP1 setting. As you can see, although it's supposed to read 11-13-13-30-2T our sample profile ran at 14 on both the tRCD and tRP. Despite being already at the 1.65v capacity we're sure we can do better than this.
Sure enough with exactly the same voltages it was completely stable at 10-12-12-30-1T timings. Dropping a full CAS latency timing is nothing to be sniffed at, and a sign of why Kingston feel this worthy of the HyperX branding. Because this required no changes other than adjusting the timings manually, this will be the setting we use for today's review.
