Kingston ValueRAM Server Premier memory modules are manufactured using a locked bill of materials (BOM), which is important to customers who use or build white box systems and require the brand and revision of the DRAM to always be the same. Kingston can fully control the BOM (down to the chip die revision), and this is critical in server systems requiring maximum stability and uptime.

Networking products, medical equipment, database servers, high-performance computing, video-on-demand servers, and web servers are examples of industries that require Server Premier memory.

As you can see by looking at the picture of one of the sticks, Kingston is using SK-Hynix memory modules to populate the PCBs.

For our test platform, we will use the ASRock 2U12L6SC-2TS6 Server, which we reviewed last month.

Again, we have the Intel Xeon 2697 V2 CPUs running, giving us 24 cores and 48 threads to run our tests with. The only difference in this test platform is the new Kingston KVR-16R11S4/8HA DDR3 1600MHz ValueRAM Server Memory.

This is how CPUz sees these memory modules; it shows the speed and timings of this kit. These speeds and timings are standard for server memory, so there's nothing fancy here.

AIDA64

AIDA64 memory bandwidth benchmarks (Memory Read, Memory Write, and Memory Copy) measure the maximum achievable memory data transfer bandwidth.

Using AIDA64, we get our first look at what these memory kits can do. This shows good performance for these kits. All results are fairly close to the other kits we use.

LinX

LinX 0.6.4 is a CPU benchmark that measures floating-point operations per second and is used to compare CPU performance; it is also a very good stress test to run.

Running LinX shows results a little below compared to some of our other tests, which usually range in the 120 GFlops speeds.

wPrime

wPrime is a leading multithreaded benchmark for x86 processors that tests your processor performance. This is a great test to use to rate the system speed; it also works as a stress test to see how well the system cooling is performing.

Kingston KVR-16R11S4/8HA DDR3 1600MHz ValueRAM Server Memory Review 09 | TweakTown.com

wPrime is showing almost no difference compared to our other results.

We found that the Kingston KVR16R11S4/8HA ValueRAM Server memory is a drop-in replacement for your existing servers. If you want to expand the memory or if you are building new servers, these sticks will serve you very well.

William Harmon started working with computers back in 2005 and began overclocking all kinds of different setups. My focus back then and even now is extreme cooling using Single Stage Phase units, Cascades and Liquid Nitrogen. During this time I was also in several competitions that GIGABYTE had sponsored, GOOC 2009 and 2010. Using technics in overclocking and cooling that I have learned over the years I started building high speed workstations and servers for clients who needed higher performing systems. Many of these systems are used in high frequency trader companies and work stations used in all kinds of professions. At TweakTown, I provide and develop accurate test and benchmark methods for servers and other equipment to help make purchasing decisions easier.
