All benchmarks are done on a fresh install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit that is fully up-to-date with Windows Updates to ensure that the performance reflects a real-world scenario and not that of a tweaked benchmarking system. Every benchmark runs for a total of three times and then an average is taken of those results.

  1. I have the same memory but i didn’t got the second XML profile….

    My motherboard is a Gigabyte Z170XP-SLI….

    • The only thing I can suggest is that Corsair have removed the 2nd profile from their later released samples. Seems strange though!
