    @cn555ic

    I am also hoping and betting on more performance and snappiness !!!

    Please can you run the benchmark with G.SKILL as below and post screenshot, so there is some tangible numbers when Alienware 13 R3 people must decide what to buy?

    If @Vasudev is right, then you should keep G.SKILL. Let' see the numbers.

    Many of my games hang around 55 to 60 FPS in some heavy scenarios at maximum settings @ 1080p (capped to stay at 60 FPS and V-sync OFF) so +5 FPS would help greatly.

    Re-posting CPU-Z screen of my memory type from DELL.

    I just ran memory benchmark of stock memory in AIDA 64. The latency seems pretty high, doesn't it LOL

    You are the only person that has 2 x 8 GB 2666 HyperX. Please can you do me another favour.
    Can you please post AIDA 64 memory benchmark as above so I can estimate the difference a bit.

    Isn't your Read or copy speed slow. I use 2133MHz with similar bench results(Around 30GB/s on read,write and copy with same latency of 79-83ns) on SK Hynix CL15.

    You are right. I will close everything, re-start and re-run with nothing running to be a bit consistent. BRB

    @Vasudev

    Re-ran after clean re-start, nothing running + 5 minutes idle. Note the difference in CPU Multiplier.

    But the stock timings are higher than hyper X at 15. Shouldn’t that make a difference in some minimal gains of 3-4 FPS?

    Too late. Returned it just about an hour ago. I ordered HyperX ones already. I know over kill at 16gb sticks but the vendor I have done business with only have those specs for sale now. I don’t trust too many eBay vendors!

    I have a feeling this was a waste of money! Lol

    yes I did as it was the only configuration the vendor had at the moment. I hope it will not be a waste of money. I will keep you guys posted. The moment it comes next week it will be popped in! Lol
