Kingston HyperX PC3-11000 CL7 DDR3 2gb Kit

Sisoft Sandra, Everest & SuperPI

Sisoft Sandra

Sisoft Sandra is a synthetic benchmark utility capable of reporting and benchmarking a wide range of system components. For the Kingston HyperX PC3-11000 memory we run both the Memory Bandwidth and Memory Latency benchmarks 3 times to ensure accuracy of results.

Everest is in many ways similar to Sisoft Sandra. Focusing mainly on Software and Hardware information reporting, Everest also comes with a benchmark utility suitable for testing the read, write and latency performance of the memory subsystem.

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.

Result Observations

As we can see from the results above, reducing the memory timings down from 7-7-7-20 to 6-7-7-20 offered a reasonable performance boost in both memory bandwidth, latency and SuperPI results. However, the SuperPI results were overshadowed by figures produced by the memory running at 1472mhz. Even with extremely relaxed timings of 9-9-9-25, the extra 97mhz overclock gave a fairly impressive 2 second lead.

Very good write up, Jim!

But the timings seem to lose at the moment... Stick with DDR2 until DDR3 price drops a little and they sort out those timings!

Mr. Smith
Timings! Did you learn nothing from this lol.

Goes off to read review...

Edit: Well, they are very average aren't they. I think you should remove 'Reasonable performance' from 'The Good' and add it to 'The Mediocre'. Reasonable does not strike me as a good attribute.

Good review though, just average sticksQuote
