CPU-Z Information - Before we actually dive into the benchmark, first a small overview of what CPU-Z is reporting back to us.
CPU-Z system values. We disabled all power saving features. And with turbo mode enabled your Core i7 processor will always run a little faster than originally specced.
CPU-Z does a swell job of reading out the JEDEC timings. We however are interested in that last one, 1000 MHz (x2) XMP (= EPP = Extended Performance Profile) as that is our target and the sole reason we purchase this memory. Starting at 1866 MHz we have to select a Command rate of 2T, unfortunately.
Overclocking then. Tweaking memory takes time to find the perfect balance of the maximum frequency versus latency versus voltage versus stability. Fair enough, you will get the advertised 2000 MHz out of the modules without a hitch.
Here we have the memory setup at 2138 MHz this is actually CAS 9:9:9:24 timings at 2T, stock 1.68V voltage. CAS is misreported there, it's CAS 9. But hey, we are ready to rock and roll.
