Here are the new high end modules from G.SKill - the Trident X - that come with a completely new design and very high frequencies. Indeed the lowest frequency for this new series is no less than 2400 MHz! G.Skill Trident X - Z77 Line Up
For about one and a half months, the guys from ocaholic have known that they were going to try break memory world records. At an exhibition called IM-Top which was being held by the Swiss distributor Ingram Micro ocaholic was welcome to try break memory world records.

Hey boys Lately I've been testing a couple high-speed DDR3 kits, and at somewhat random - on a wide variety of X58 boards - one or more memory channels are disappearing, i.e. dropped from both BIOS and effective use. Has this happened to anyone else? At first I noticed this incorrect memory detection behaviour on an Asus Rampage II Extreme when using specific settings for CPU VTT (QPI/Uncore voltage) and memory speed, which led to one of the three channels being dropped, leaving a 3x2 GB kit to boot with only two of the three modules active. The issues were most apparent when using a low QPI/Uncore voltage or too tight timings - or at speeds in excess of 800 MHz (DDR3-1600), anything less ran without issues. It should be noted, that CPU-Z would display all installed 3x2 GB, but testing memory bandwidth reveals that only 4 (2x2 GB) is being used. I tested every possible aspect, even ran checked all modules with MemTest. The board was then RMA'ed, and the replacement board has so far not shown similar issues with +1866 MHz tri-channel kits. Initially I thought this to be a BIOS issue, but nowadays I'm also testing the W35xx series Xeon's which are doing just fine. No problems regardless of selected memory speed and/or tight timings. This got me thinking that loosing memory channels might be related to a partially degraded internal memory controller (IMC) on my old and used 965 ES. So, has anyone else had similar experiences with disappearing memory? And is the missing memory channel caused by the IMC or the need for a combo of ideal memory settings? (as well as finding the optimal QPI voltage of this particular sample) - Tom :ws:
