Testing Method & Test Setup

Knowing about Samsung HCH9's capabilities from recent TridentX review, we armed ourselves with an Ivy Bridge testing platform that should allow our memory to show every last bit of its overclocking potential.
To make sure that our figures represent the sort of stability safe to use ever day, we are going to run each setting until we get a 150% pass of eight 750MB instances of HCI Memtest that is considered one of the toughest memory stress-tests around.

Motherboard ASUS Maximus V Gene (BIOS 0086)
CPU Intel Core i7-3770K @ 4.0 GHz
Graphic card XFX 8600 GT
Memory ADATA XPG Gaming Series V2.0 AX3U2400GC4G10-DG2
HDD Samsung 40 GB
PSU Silverstone OP1000
OS Windows 7, 64 bit SP1


Results are very good since those modules are almost always 60 MHz behind G.Skill's TridentX DDR3-2600 CL10. These ADATA XPG offer very good overclocking headroom as at specs they can operate with 70 MHz more fully stable and DDR3-2400 at CL10-12-12 operation was possible at only 1.55v.
Raising the voltage up to 1.75v allowed us to run them at the same timings and speed as the 2600C10 TridentX.
So chips used for this kit are less binned than the ones you find on a DDR3-2600 CL10 kit but they still show a very good potential. Due to our processor's memory controller stability limit we aren't able to run MemTest fully stable higher than DDR3-2666 while the memory kit was able to do more. Below you find a successful SuperPi32M pass at DDR3-2800 CL11-13-13-35-1T at 1.75v.
