Review: Next generation kit
After complete testing the Patriot 1333MHz Kit we received the next speed grade from OCZ, so we take a look at what this Kit can do.
This OCZ Kit comes with the typical OCZ heatspreaders and it's rated at 1.7V, which is quite nice for a 1600MHz kit. The timings are oc typical at CL7-7-7-20. During our tests the heatspreaders stayed very cool.
Low latencies do not imply it will run faster than the higher ones, as it all depands on the mainboard you are using. The ASUS P5K3 Deluxe could run fast with CL9 and Boost 3, while the Blitz Extreme refused to run faster than Boost 0, but had no troubles using CL7. The Blitz didn't like the OCZ kit with low speed settings; even with optimizing it was slower than Patriot, but the higher the speed the better OCZ. 1667MHz was no problem for OCZ with the specified settings and some BIOS tweaking:
