Today's test system uses our Corsair Dominator 1800MHz memory which managed to top right out at 1800MHz using the same 1.9v that the Patriot memory used.


Our stock tests were done with the memory dividers set to run the memory at 1333MHz, which is the highest DDR3 speed recognised by the JEDEC so this is our set point.


From there we did our overclocked tests which were at the highest memory clock available to us; there will be some definite jumps in the results due to different FSB and CPU clock speeds. However, we did try to keep the CPU as close to each other as possible, around the 3.2GHz to 3.3GHz barrier.

EVEREST Ultimate Edition is an industry leading system diagnostics and benchmarking solution for enthusiasts PC users, based on the award-winning EVEREST Technology. During system optimizations and tweaking it provides essential system and overclock information, advanced hardware monitoring and diagnostics capabilities to check the effects of the applied settings. CPU, FPU and memory benchmarks are available to measure the actual system performance and compare it to previous states or other systems.




At stock speeds the Patriot memory is able to lower its timings down to a very respectable 7-7-7-20, which gives it a very good result for the stock speeds. At overclocked however it increases to 8-8-8-24. Corsair on the other hand managed to keep its 7-7-7-20 timings so it gains a slight leg up in the overall bandwidth.
