post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Am testing right now against my older G Skill sticks and its 11% slower at the same timings. Whats the best memory for benchmarking guys? Sending this crap back to newegg

Which Team kit are you testing? If they are the single-sided Hynix MFR based sticks, then they are intended for high MHz on Haswell and will not keep up with a double-sided kit at the same clocks / timings. They need a 300-400MHz advantage for the same type of performance (which they can get on Haswell).

What rig are you benching? The LGA1366? If so, then anything with Elpida Hyper would be your best bet for benching, if running Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge, then probably Powerchip or Elpida BBSE would be the best choices.

Was testing the Xtreme 2666 kit at 9-9-9-28 @ 2133 and it was getting killed by my g skills at the same timings. Doing a haswell vs Bloomfield comparo

Yeah, at those clocks and timings the single-sided MFR based modules don't stand a chance. They are capable of 3000+ according to testing done by ihog6hog and posted on the Ram Addict's Club thread.

That's pretty good for a $100 kit. To jump to the GSkill 2933 kit (also single-sided MFR) will cost you $400 for a 2x4GB kit. Ram prices on those high-MHz are just out of sight right now. GSkill actually has a 4x4GB and a 2x4GB DDR-3 kit that list for $4,000 and $2,000, respectively, at Newegg.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007611%20600453361&IsNodeId=1&name=DDR3%203000%20%28PC3%2024000%29

Samsung HCH9 (which I believe your GSkills are) run pretty good on Haswell and at this point would be my choice for a 24/7 rig, but if you want to bust 3000, those single-sided Hynix are the entry ticket.

Edit;
Given those prices you might just want to keep your $100 kit to play around with high clocks because to be honest, I don't think that you'll find them for that price again. That was the last of the stock and now Team has a 2800 kit out and I just don't see those 2666 being made anymore.

you bought validation sticks and not benching set ,what bench are you running or what are you looking for (latency ,bandwidth,etc.) , you have to set the timings/frequency to suit your needs (don't blame the game,blame the player )

What's the best 2400 and 2600 benching sticks guys? Not looking for simple validations. Looking for sticks that will perform.

For 4GB modules, I believe that you can't go wrong with good Sammies, however, there have been some good results with Hynix CFR, too. As Haswell BIOS mature and the learning curve for the platform levels out some, it may be that the best will continue to be the Powerchip and BBSE.

Bottom line is that it is still kinda early to know what is really going to be the best for this platform.
