Since it's memory designed for computer enthusiasts and overclockers I will also check how it acts on higher clocks and tighter timings than these programmed in XMP.
Results may vary using memory with even the same product number or production date. Overclocking is not guaranteed and there is chance to damage hardware so if you aren't sure what are you doing, just don't do it.
Maximum clock acheved on this memory was 1400MHz which can be translated to DDR3-2800 on quite tight timings 11-13-13-35. However these settings were not stable under higher load.
Even though I could boot at high clocks using nothing but more standard air or water cooling then I couldn't make any clocks above DDR3-2500 stable. For some reason system was freezing under higher load.
Below is one more result. This time on standard memory clock but much tighter timings. Using really low tertiary timings and higher CPU clock I was able to pass 32GB/s in MaxxMem benchmark. If you compare it to our previous results that's about 4GB/s higher bandwidth for every category and much lower latency.
As I already mentioned, overclocking results are not guaranteed and probably some other samples will act a bit different on higher clocks. On the other hand, not many users are going to need higher clocks with such good performing memory.
