Kingston HyperX Predator – 8GB Kit (2x4GB) – DDR3 2666MHz CL11 DIMM
WHAT WE LIKED:Top shelf performance and overclocking to 2738MHz.
WHAT WE DISLIKED:Tall heat spreaders may pose a problem with large air coolers.

Benchmarking: Aida 64, MaxMemm2
When testing memory, we are more interested with read/write/copy speeds but also we threw in a small handful of benchmarks to measure the performance at various frequencies. Let’s rock and roll.
Finalwire AIDA64 is a system diagnostics and benchmarking utility that provides system and overclock information, advanced hardware monitoring and diagnostics capabilities, and includes tests for the memory subsystem. Here the utility runs the benchmark and records the Read and Write bandwidths, as well as the Latency.
With Aida 64, the read write copy speeds are good at 1600MHz but really rock at 2400MHz. These are top notch speeds to say the least. We used X.M.P profile with 2666MHz and the setting was 2T with a slight reduction in scores.
Latencies are off the charts with these Predator modules at 2666MHz. 30.9ns is the lowest latency score to date of all memory we have tested.
MaxxMEM Preview is another memory benchmark which measures memory performance in areas such as, Copy, Read/Write speeds and Latency.
MaxMemm2 gives the same thump as Aida 64 with some incredibe read/write/copy speeds for these modules!
MaxMemm2 shows different latencies from Aida64. Remember, these are different programs too. The scores using MaxMemm2 are awesome.
