Funny, earlier this week I was surfing the web like a madman, looking for a legit review of these Modules. Lo and behold one drops in right under my nose here at OCC. Thank You Ccokeman for the Review. I am wondering why Kingston would apply what seems to be a decent cooling solution to a somewhat average set of modules. I think their air-cooled versions are higher performing that these. I just cannot believe its the cooling solution that is holding these back, my guess is that its the quality of the ram. Why they wouldnt put their best modules up for this solution is beyond my kin.

Ccokeman can correct me if I'm wrong, but it was not the cooling solution that held these back, but rather his CPU.

You are correct. Frank reached the limit on his memory controller.

I'm relieved that they are at least very low restriction (being essentially a 1/4 ID tube with barbs) for those that really want to cool *everything* with water. :P

I don't know why 9-10-9-27 is bad at 2000mhz +
I guess I don't get it. My current ram stock frequency is 1333 at 9-9-9-24. Yeah I can tighten them up to 7-7-7-20 but at the stock settings they overclock better up into 1600mhz range.

Good modules but loose is not a word that can be applied to these timings at that high of speed.

I am the reason we can't have nice things.

When you have memory that can run Cas 6 and 7 at these speeds yup loose is a word I would use. But these modules can do 7-9-7 at 2000Mhz with some voltage tweaking so there is room for improvement unless I have my reviews mixed up!

I guess I didn't realize timings were getting so tight. Thanks buddy :thumbsup:

DDR3 at the high end has been pretty good for a while. :cheers:
