Kingston HyperX Genesis 2666mhz Memory Review (Z77)

Today we are using the latest Intel Core i7 3770k processor with the Asus ROG Maximus V Gene Z77 motherboard. Intel HD4000 graphics were enabled via the Core i7 3770k processor.

Processor: Intel Core i7 3770k

Storage Drive: Patriot 240GB Wildfire.

Comparison memory:
4GB ‘generic’ 1333mhz memory @ 9-9-9-24.

We also wanted to include some results from Topower Black Edition memory, running at 1,600mhz @ 9-9-9 timings, on the following system

CPU: Intel Core i7 2700k

NOTE: We haven’t tested many memory kits on the P67/Z68 platform in recent months, so we felt it would be worth including results from our high end Quad Channel X79 system featuring the 3960X EE processor. Obviously this shouldn’t be used as a direct comparison, but more to highlight a wider overview of performance levels between the various Intel platforms.
