While I bench and test the latest gear, I always kept to my very old 24/7 main work rig but it's time to upgrade the 24/7 main work with more up to date gear and finally after many years a new pc case - Lian Li PC-7FNWX with USB3.0 ports and side window.
Picked up 3 sets of 2x2GB Super Talent Speed series DDR3-2200 8-8-8-24 dual channel kits (WS220UX4G8) - these are Elpida 50nm Hyper ICs only ones capable of 8-8-8-24 timings at such DDR3-2200Mhz speeds.
While they're for P55 dual channel, I decided to mix these up for X58 triple channel too - not expecting 3x2GB modules to hit thos speeds at 1.65v but with a bit more volts should be okay for benching at least
Well after my brief taste of mis-matched 12GB action, I want more So I plan to include some 12GB triple channel action in my comparison X58 triple channel kits review I have planned. First contenders are A-Data brand. Haven't used A-Data memory since the old A-Data PC4000 (Hynix D43) era!
