HyperX Savage 2666MHz 32GB Testing:

Memory is often hard to separate from one kit to another in gaming, but when it comes to number crunching and computing, some memory provides an extra boost in comparison. To see just what kind of performance this kit has to offer, I will be running the modules through a series of benches to see just how they compare. SInce I only have a pair of DDR4 modules these will represent the comparison field. Each kit will be tested at its native native speeds, as well as overclocked. Overclocking of course will be dependent on exactly how far the testing rig will allow, but I'll push it as far as I can. The testing setup used for these benchmarks is listed below with the XMP profile applied to show where the modules settle in at after training. The CPU will be run with default XMP settings with the CPU running at 4.5Ghz  for the basleine testing. The memory will then be overclocked while keeping the clock speed as close to 4.5GHz as possible for OC testing. All current updates and patches are installed for Windows 7 Professional 64-bit and the latest driver for the NVIDIA GTX Titan X will be used.

 

Testing Setup: Intel Socket 1151

Overclocking:

After my initial issues with this kit just running the basic XMP profile, I did not think that I would see much in terms of overclocking from this kit. What I ended up with was a set of memory that was able to throw down a really solid 434MHz overclock when it was all said and done. It took loosening a few timings to get there and the application of a little more voltage to the DIMMs, but they perked up once push came to shove. To reach 3100MHz, I had to adjust the primary timings up to 17-17-17-35 using 1.45v while leaving the voltages for the CPU, System Agent, and VCCIO at the settings I base lined the Core i7 6700K's 4.5GHz overclock with. Running the timings at 16-17-17 was not fully stable, but 17-17-17 proved to be LinX stable using all the available system memory. Dropping the memory clock speed sown a bit will get 16-17-17 stable without adding additional voltage. All told the clock speed increase of 434MHz is on a percentage basis close to 17%.

 

 

Maximum Memory Speed:

The maximum memory speed for each set of overclocked modules is indicative of how well the modules ran on this test system. As such, your results may differ in either a positive or negative way based on the capabilities of your hardware. In other words, your mileage may vary!
