Kingmax PC3-12800 (1600MHz) 6GB Kit - Overclocking

It's been a while since we've looked at a Tri-Channel kit of memory. Let's look at what Kingmax are doing in this area.

Being a PC3-12800 kit means the default clock for the modules are 1600MHz DDR. On the timings front, Kingmax has opted for a 9-9-9-28-1T setup.

Getting the default clocks wasn't an issue which is what we would expect. We hoped that when it came to overclocking the kit would also carry with it a bit of potential and we're glad to say it did.

Moving from the default 1600MHz DDR setup while keeping the same 9-9-9-28-1T setup, we managed to achieve 1833MHz DDR which is a nice little overclock.


Important Editor Note: Our maximum overclocking result is the best result we managed in our limited time of testing the memory. Due to time constraints we weren't able to tweak the motherboard to the absolute maximum and find the highest possible FSB, as this could take days to find properly. We do however spend at least a few hours overclocking every motherboard to try and find the highest possible overclock in that time frame. You may or may not be able to overclock higher if you spend more time tweaking, or as new BIOS updates are released. "Burn-in" time might also come into play if you believe in that.
