Overall Score 3.7  

Test Setup

We used the Asus Rampage V Extreme Motherboard with its extreme range of memory settings as a test bed. We used the X.M.P. settings for all memory tests in this review.

As stated in our Avexir Raiden Green Tesla 16GB 2666MHz DDR4 Memory review, we moved away from the Battlefield 4 tests to a different benchmark to get a clearer set of results.

We have omitted the Dual Channel test results from our charts when testing Quad Channel, or four DIMM kits, on the Intel X99 platform.

Synthetic Tests

Real World Tests

We run the Real World tests in 1080p resolution with maximum and minimum graphical settings with vsync off, so the focus doesn’t move to the MSI GTX 970 GAMING Twin Frozr V. This should give feedback on the small physical configuration differences such as memory timings.
