With today's test system we move up to the GIGABYTE X48T-DQ6 motherboard, which is a reference X48 DDR3 board here at TweakTown. Today we have the OCZ XMP1600 modules here as comparison. For our stock clock settings we used 1333MHz which is the highest JEDEC standard for DDR3.
We then pushed the modules up to XMP 1600MHz and then cranked the Kingston up to XMP1800. The OCZ memory would not run at XMP1800 so we only managed to get the Kingston to this level for testing.

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.
Starting on the synthetic memory performance, at 1333MHz the OCZ memory is able to run slightly tighter memory timings. When at 1600MHz the OCZ memory again has tighter timings, however the OCZ memory can't reach the 1800MHz limit the Kingston does, so Kingston manages to win out here.
