Software Used

Methodology

In our RAM reviews, we keep things relatively simple. We put the RAM kit that is being tested into our test system and benchmark it at its primary XMP profile using a variety of benchmarks and tests. Once complete, we then overclock the kit to see how far we can push it in raw frequency terms, then benchmark it again using the same combination of tests with a CPU-Z validation of the overclock.

  • Cinebench R15 Multithreaded Test
  • AIDA64 Engineer Edition Memory Bandwidth and Latency Test
  • SiSoft Sandra Tech Support (Engineer) Memory Bandwidth Test
  • WPrime 32M Calculation Test
  • 3DMark Fire Strike Physics Test
