Kingston HyperX KHX2400C11D3K4/8GX Review
Bluetooth 23 Mar 2012
With more boards supporting overclock speeds of DDR3-2400, ram manufactures are releasing new modules that are capable of running these overclocked speeds with latest processors and chipsets in market. As these new modules comes in a pack of 4, it is just best suited to pair it with the Intel X79 system as it supports Quad Channel DDR3.
Today, we take a look at Kingston KHX2400C11D3K4/8GX.
Kingston’s KHX2400C11D3K4/8GX is a kit of four 256M x 64-bit (2GB) DDR3-2400 CL11 SDRAM (Synchronous DRAM)
1Rx8 memory modules, based on eight 256M x 8-bit DDR3 FBGA components per module. Each module kit supports
Intel® XMP (Extreme Memory Profiles). Total kit capacity is 8GB. Each module kit has been tested to run at DDR3-2400 at
a low latency timing of 11-13-11 at 1.65V. The SPDs are programmed to JEDEC standard latency DDR3-1333 timing of
9-9-9 at 1.5V. Each 240-pin DIMM uses gold contact fingers.
The JEDEC standard electrical and mechanical specifications are as follows
XMP TIMING PARAMETERS
• JEDEC: DDR3-1333 CL9-9-9 @1.5V
• XMP Profile #1: D3-2400 CL11-13-11 @1.65V
• XMP Profile #2: D3-2133 CL11-12-11 @1.65V
In our test, we put the ram modules to test on our Biostar TPower X79 motherboard (review of board with ram here).
On the next page, we run the ram module under the Biostar Tpower X79 in both XMP Profile #1 and XMP Profile #2.
