We are using the ASRock Z87 OC Formula motherboard to test today’s memory kit. It supports RAM from many manufacturers and gives us a large amount of flexibility to tinker with memory multiplier, base clock and timings settings. It has also reached the highest DRAM frequency of all the Z87 motherboards that we have tested.
Our full review of the ASRock Z87 OC Formula motherboard can be read here.
The fully-functioning XMP profile configured the memory kit for use at its 2800MHz frequency and correct timings.
Windows and CPU-Z registered the memory’s functioning settings as correct.
Our system’s CPU-Z validation running at a 2800MHz DRAM frequency can be found here.
