Compustocx (CSX), always made headlines with its Diablo series overclock-friendly memory modules. Some of its earlier DDR3-2000+ memory modules received raving reviews. Unfortunately, DRAM voltages on those modules were to high to let the modules count safe for the Core i7 platform.

The company now released a new 3 GB and 6 GB, triple-channel memory kits that brandish Core i7 compatibility. The DIABLO3-2000-3GB-3KIT and DIABLO3-2000-6GB-3KIT come with the district Diablo-series heatspreaders over the modules. They use Samsung HCF0 DRAM chips which count as some of the best performing parts. Each module holds eight 1 Gb (for the 3 GB kit) or 2 Gb (for the 6 GB kit) chips. By default, the modules are programmed to run at JEDEC standard speeds: 1333 MHz, with CAS latency at 9T. The modules are guaranteed to run at a max speed of 2000 MHz, with DRAM timings of 9-9-9-24, at a voltage of 1.64 V. CSX has these kits out in limited quantities for now.

They're cuttin' those volts awful damn close....while it won't hurt them, if I had spent that much on Core i7, I would want 1.5Vdimm atleast. :\\

Still nice that they're creating ram chips that run at higher speeds...progress, even for the wrong reasons, is still progress.

Corsair's top-of-the-line kit runs @ 2000Mhz with 8-7-8-20 timings, making it faster than these Diablo kits. They aren't a bad alternative though.

The DDR3-1333 triple channel memory kits are 1.5v while the overclocked variants are at 1.65v.

now is that user set? cause the modules on those are d9gtr and im pretty sure they can hold similar timings.

Looks good, wonder how well it performs. Never heard of CSX before.

Unlike OCZ, Corsair, Crucial, G.Skill, & Kingston. Their are a few companies that make OC/Gamer specific RAM don't get alot of attention.

Buffalo and CSX are two of those companies. Their are a few more as well. Just as good as the competition, just not as known.

How is this cutting it close?

You can't even run DDR-2000 on most i7s without a 4GHz uncore clock, which will need 1.4v+ (on the uncore/vtt).

They'd have to be rated for 1.8v+ for it to be cutting it close.

this is h0000t, and good voltage for a 2000mhz kit!!!! If its cheap it will be tough to beat.

I would choose Corsair Dominator GT's, but if these were cheaper, I would buy these instead, despite the high timings.
