Samsung Green 8GB VLP 1600MHz Kit Review

We've got the Samsung in our standard Sandy Bridge test setup that we use for all our dual-channel testing.

Intel Core i5-2500K @ 4GHz
Cougar CM1000 PSU
Windows 7 64 Bit
Without a heat-spreader in place this really isn't designed to have 1.65v pushed through it, and that would be missing the point anyway. One of the downsides of the Sandy Bridge fixed BCLK is the next memory speed is a whopping 266MHz ahead and there are very few kits that can cope with that.
PC Mark Vantage
The major comparison for the Samsung Green is the Corsair Vengeance which runs at 1.35v, .15v less than we need to obtain 1600MHz from the VLP. However the results are pretty close throughout PC Mark Vantage.
