Memory Settings & Overclocking
As with all memory reviews on Overclock3D the HyperX PC3-11000 modules were subjected to a series of benchmark tests under several different configurations. The configurations used tested the memory's ability to run at high frequencies, tight timings and also ensured that that the modules could run with 100% stability at their advertised stock settings.
Thankfully the Kingston HyperX PC3-11000 kit did not suffer with this problem, managing to run at the advertised settings of 1375mhz / 7-7-7-20 / 1.7v without any stability issues whatsoever.
