A-Data Vitesta 6GB DDR3-1600+ 8-8-8 Memory Kit Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
Guru3D have posted a review of the A-Data Vitesta Extreme Edition 6GB DDR3-1600+ triple-channel memory kit, which sports 8-8-8 timings at 1.65V.
Here's what they had to say:
"So let's finalize this conclusion. A-Data offers a very competitive memory kit here. It offers great performance, and when overclocked you should be able to get 1800+ MHz out of it as well. But be careful passing that 1.65V voltage, it's outside Intel's safety specification. I say, just leave it at 1.65 Volts, do the 1600 MHz at CAS8 and you'll be a happy camper.
At 125 USD / 95 EUR this kit is priced fairly competitive and comes highly recommended. It's roughly 21 USD per Gigabyte of memory. It's definitely good to see DDR3 memory getting priced at DDR2 levels. As such we expect that this year there will be a turning point in the move from DDR2 towards DDR3 memory. Two very big thumbs up to A-Data, this is truly great value."
This is decent, if somewhat unremarkable triple-channel memory kit. For roughly the same price, you can very easily find a DDR3-1600 7-7-7 kit that will not only perform a bit better, but likely also have more overclocking headroom.
