Sandybridge has prompted RAM vendors to focus on high speed, high capacity dual channel DIMM kits that were not very popular with H55/P55 users, but the H67/P67 boards will utilize. The Patriot Viper Xtreme Division 2 DDR3-1866 8GB Dual Channel Memory Kit is a little faster than many dual channel kits and that has made the timings different as well, at 9-11-9-27.
"A little while ago we took a look at Patriot’s Viper Xtreme triple channel memory that is designed for Intel X58 systems. Today we are checking out the Viper Xtreme Division 2 Edition memory which is designed for Intel’s 2nd generation “Sandy Bridge” Core processors. This memory has been rigorously tested and validated on the Intel 6 Series platform to achieve maximum performance and stability. The Division 2 memory has all of the same features as the original Viper Xtreme memory like the 6 gram copper core and aircraft-grade aluminum heatspreaders. Today we will be puttin g the 8GB DDR3-1866 kit to the test."
