Kingston HyperX 10th Anniversary Edition 1866MHz 8GB Memory Kit review

2. Benchmarks

We installed the Kingston HyperX Beast 10th Anniversary Edition memory 1866MHz 4x2GB Kit in the following PC:

  • CPU: Intel i5-2500K retail processor
  • CPU Cooler: Intel Stock
  • Motherboard: Gigabyte Z77X-D3H with F16 bios
  • PSU: OCZ GameXStream GXS600 SLI-Ready
  • VGA: MSI 7600GT Silent (stock memory/core timings)
  • HDD: WD 500GB 7200rpm SATA2
  • OS: Windows 7 x64 SP1 with all the latest updates installed

Installed in our system, this kit supports the XMP-1866 and XMP-1600 profiles. Make sure to choose one of them in order to give your system the optimal performance boost:

Below you see the results we got with the Sisoft Sandra Benchmark Suite. You can see each result by clicking on each test:

Running Speed
Aggregate Memory Performance

The best performance came with the memory running at 1866MHz, where we got almost 24 MB/s.

The Aida64 Cache & Memory Benchmark confirmed the previous results. Again using the 866MHz speed is recommended in case your system supports it. Note that our motherboard also allowed the memory to run at 1866MHz even without using the XMP profiles, but in that case the memory was running at higher CAS Latency (CL), which would have some impact on your system's performance:
