CSX DIABLO DDR3-2000MHz 3GB Triple Channel Memory Kit - Test System Setup and EVEREST

Tri-channel memory for Core i7 is now the go and getting speeds out of it at 1.65v or less is tricky, but CSX has its new kit which does just that.

Today we throw the 2000MHz CSX memory against the A-DATA 3GB kit that we recently reviewed. This gives us a pretty good idea on a MB for MB rate as to how these very different kits perform.

At stock speeds the A-DATA memory and the CSX manage the same speeds, but when we start to increase the speed the A-DATA falls behind, especially since it can't make the 1600MHz or 2000MHz mark.
