Arctic Z1 Gen 3 Review

The Z1 was a simple install and setup and works very nicely, the hub is simple but sleek and in all reality, Arctic did a great job.

In either case we consider the Blast Plug BP82s to be a great addition to Silicon Powers current wireless earbud lineup.

[WTB] Triple channel 3x2G Elpida Hyper rams

Recommended Posts

I looking to buy a triple channel kit 3x2G (could be 3x1G too) for old-school X58 overclock experiment, but the sticks have to use the Elpida Hyper chips, because decent ones could handle close to 900MHz with 6-6-6 timings, unlike the second best sticks with BBSE chips. For example - 6-7-6-18 1T timings at 877MHz:http://hwbot.org/submission/949968thebanikwprime__1024mcorei79502min29sec_421ms

A good examples of wanted sticks are:

G.Skill Perfect Storm PC3-16000 F3-16000CL7T-6GBPS (3x2GB, 2000 7-8-7-20 @ 1.65V, Elpida MNH-E Hyper)G.Skill Perfect Storm PC3-17600 F3-17600CL8D-4GBPS (2x2GB, 2200 8-8-8-24 @ 1.65V, Elpida MNH-E Hyper)Corsair Dominator GT CMG6GX3M3A2000C7 (3x2GB, 2000 7-7-7-20 @ 1.65V, Elpida ??? Hyper)Mushkin PC3-12800 Redline 998729 (3x2GB, 1600 6-6-5-18 @ 1.65V, Elpida MNH-E Hyper)

less chances are withG.Skill Perfect Storm PC3-16000 F3-16000CL8T-6GBPS (3x2GB, 2000 8-8-8-21 @ 1.65V, Elpida BBSE-DJ-F OR Elpida MNH-E Hyper)

But even other sticks, such as OCZ Blade 2000C7 should not be overlooked

Guide to memory chips in DDR3 rams are there:http://ramlist.i4memory.com/ddr3/

Price should be in "reasonable limits" too, as G.Skill 6G ram kits are selling in the vicinity of 40 -50$ on eBay:http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?campid=5337413396&toolid=10001&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fsch%2Fi.html%3Fodkw%3DG.Skill%2BPerfect%2BStorm%26osacat%3D0%26from%3DR40%26trksid%3Dp2045573.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.H0.XG.Skill%2Btriple%2Bchannel.TRS0%26nkw%3DG.Skill%2Btriple%2Bchannel%26sacat%3D0...just not yet the exactly wanted types :D And Kingston HyperX 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3-2000C9 kit (KHX2000C9AD3T1K3/6GX 1.65v (AVME16A1091) Elpida ic) was sold for "$10 per stick plus $7-shipping (a somewhat heavy kit)."http://www.overclock.net/t/1564916/ddr3-and-ddr2-memory-kitsSo pls no crazy offers ;)
