I'll be pulling the Tridents out, though, when I start playing with my shiny new 3930K, so I'll try to do some comparisons then if I have enough time. That Hynix fire is bad news! Kind of a miracle nobody was killed in that.

Although Intel seems to be pretty good with a solid set of BBSEs, might even be better than the new Hynix chips that they are selling these days, certainly the single sided versions anyway. Might have to partake in this contest, 3D is definitely not my thing.

My Tridents are the CL9's with the Sammy IC's on both sides. Bought the 4x4 kit because I had read they were binned higher than the 2x4 kits, which made sense to me. Have never played with them, though, so I have no idea what they can do.

Dead Things`s XTU score: 1054 marks with a Core i7 2600K

Damn, maybe this weekend I'll get some OCing done and see if I can get to your score. Not sure if I can, but I'll try.

Ok so I got a better one done. Had to up it to 5Ghz but still not enough to beat Dead Things

Found some time to do some testing tonight on memory speed & timings for XTU:

4770K@4.8Ghz (4.8uncore) Z87X-OC

Tested three G.Skill kits at stock

Pi's 7-10-10-28-1 2200mhz XTU:1215
Trident 10-12-12-31-2 2400mhz XTU:1111
PI's 6-8-6-20-2 1600mhz XTU:1075

Played around with the first kits timings to see more variation

9-12-12-34-2 2600mhz XTU:1177
8-11-11-31-2 2400mhz XTU:1194
7-10-9-28-1 2000mhz XTU:1191

At least on Haswell it seems the key is to find the right balance between speed and latency

Nah - I don't think so. This and the last one (Heaven) are among the most restrictive benchmarks we'll be using for these contests. We just wanted to have a go at XTU since it's new and we didn't think many folks would have had much time to play with it yet. Don't worry - your wee pint o' fury will be back in the game shortly...

Temps-wise, do you have room for more vcore? You definitely have a better chip than me. Mine couldn't even dream of doing a Prime95 run at 5.0 with just 1.128v.

What PSC's?

Just let me know when you want em back and I'll swing by :P

Might try to give this one a go as I didn't have much luck with the 3D.
