The Passmark Performance test shows our Corsair kit slamming out 47981MB/s sitting on top the chart like a crown.

Overclocking

Overclocking we worked on the Corsair Vengeance LPX 3733MHz DDR4 kit for a few hours and squeezed out a nice little productive OC but let's take a look at the stock CPU-Z setting again first.

Here we are at stock settings 3733MHz wondering if there’s enough gas in the tank on this kit to get an overclock because, well face it, 3733MHz is pretty phenomenal anyway.

Then we started playing with the kit and got a healthy OC to 3866MHz and there is probably a little-ragged edge speed left in the kit but after decades of overclocking, we’ve learned that ragged edge overclocking RAM leads to burnt ICs so we backed down from the best OC of 3890MHz to 3866MHz. At 3890MHz we were at 1.39v or .04v over the 1.35v XMP voltage. When we settled for 3866MHz we were able to reduce the 1.39v to 1.37v and we were more comfortable with that.
