As you can see from the screen shot above, the timings for this memory are quite good. Sadly the same cannot be said for the bandwidth because at just 1600MHz, this is not what we would class as a performance kit. As previously stated, we will be using two of these kits in Quad channel (32GB total) so hopefully so of the extra GB will make up for the shortfall in speed.

Above are the JEDEC and as we can see the single XMP profile is set to run these memory sticks at 1600MHz 9-9-9-27 at 1.5v. Hopefully there will be plenty of room left for overclocking!
