What's up everyone! Well today we're starting the EHW test bench sponsored log, it'll be a progressive log in which we'll keep everyone updated on how it's doing and what we're doing with it, if we're facing any issues, or if records are being broken.


With that said, the first post will contain a sort of table of content and timeline of progress and will be continuously updated and improved upon.


List of sponsors who have made this possible

Team Group Cardea Zero Z340 512GB NVME SSD

Team Group XTREEM ARGB 3200 MHz Cas 14

InWin : X-Frame 2.0 in green/black with 1065W PSU


Hardware specifications of the test bench

Intel i5 9600KF (modded to go on skylake/kabylake motherboards)

ASUS Maximus VIII Formula (Modded to accept coffee lake CPUs by myself)

ASUS GTX 780 (used in second full lenght x16 slot to leave first x16 slot for GPU testing and has all types of inputs)

EKWB : GTX780 FC GPU block, Supremacy EVO CPU Block. EK-AF compression fittings, tubing

Bitspower : Reservoir and D5 pump

We reviewed their RAM HERE in a higher rated kit. Let's see what their 3200 MHz 14-14-14 kit can do! Here's the kit in all it's glory.




Performance wise, I pushed quite hard on this set, doing up to 1.8v with full 16GB in windows, I'll let the graph speak for itself, you'll easily conclude 20% performance gains overall. This chip/motherboard combo just doesn't seem to want to do over 3866 MHz, regardless of voltages, so with that into consideration, here are the results!


First I put DRAM to 1.5V then SA to 1.3V and I/O to 1.3V, applied XMP with everything left on auto and started to raise the frequency. As soon as I increased to 3333 MHZ it automatically applied 16-16-16-39 timings and kept these up to 3866 MHz while tRFC was being adjusted with RAM frequency. I then started to reduce primary timings one by one and recording the results.




Fastest read was 57167 MB/s with 3866 MHz 12-12-12-33-540 with really tight sub timings

Fastest write was 56714 MB/s with 3866 MHz 12-12-12-33-540 with really tight sub timings as well.

Fastest copy was 51199 MB/s with 3866 MHz 12-12-12-33-540 with slightly tight sub timings 

Best latency was an even 38 ns at 3866 MHz 12-12-12-33-540 with really tight sub timings




Here's the SS for the fastest run, I use the ASRock software to be able to see the timings.





I would like to thank Team Group for such a great product, I was able to push this kit so far and it didn't even bat an eye and the performance gains easily show off the quality of the product.
