Memory manufacturer Kingmax announced the Hercules line of high-end DDR3 PC3-17600 memory modules for overclockers. Available in dual-channel kits for now, the Hercules can operate at 2200 MHz, with CAS latency of 10T, with DRAM voltage in the range of 1.5~1.7V. Optimized for Intel socket LGA-1156 processors, the modules support Intel Extreme Memory Profiles. Each kit includes two 2 GB modules. At 2200 MHz, each module provides a theoretical bandwidth of 17.6 GBps. There is no word on the availability or pricing.

Hopefully these will run at a nice latency at a more sane frequency. Probably the only reason you would run them at 2.2GHz/10T is for the e-peen.

Clock these down to 1866 with 6-7-6-18 timings and you'll get the best all around performance you can reasonably achieve with ddr3, while going a bit easier on your motherboard. Might even be possible to run 12 GBs of it at those settings.

As far as my experience go, Kingmax is the kind of company you expect to buy crap from.
Basically its a company that makes el cheapo stuff.

Yup. I don't think they look good, I mean I would rather have sticks that say "Dominator" or "Viper" rather than "Hercules". C'mon Kingmax, how lame can you get? Is this RAM supposed to pump iron at the gym?

lmao@Jstn7477. i think at least achilles would sound better than hercules. I'd only get these if 1:i could afford it, 2: to see how high a frequency you could obtain cause i wonder how fast these babies will run.

Well there's much more crappy stuff companies like Elixir, A-data, Patriot. Or some big ones that use to mix stuff for enthusiastic market like SuperTalent, Gey-L, Corsair and OCZ after they announce price drops in US, which mostly didnt reflect to the rest of the world for up to six month, and in meantime we had overpriced modules that came with totally crappy chips (rid off crap stocked chips that couldnt be used for best performing modules).

They're pretty dominant in Asia and Europe. It's pretty great budget memory just like Transcend, Apacer or PQI and with DDR3 era they start to equip their memories modules with best ddr3 chips available (usually Microns) that from their stock 1333MHz easily OCed to 1800MHz with some extra voltage.

Hold up. I have used A-Data and Patriot. Both were great. And Patriot still has the only customer service that said they would call be back and then actually called me. Then they replaced some DOA sticks for me, for free and within that same week no less. Not going to defend A-Data cause I really only used 2 sets of their RAM for some budget builds and they are still working as far as I know (3 years and 1 year old rigs); however, I will defend Patriot.

Since they want to do this, I hope whoever joins in this pissing contest uses Norse mythology. Then we can have Odin, Thor, and Ragnarök RAM sets.

You reply on long dead thread. And like you have some personal issues with me?

Well if you have all that brands its great. But I have Patriot, Corsair and they were piss poor crap in my case. Obviously we didnt have same batch so my point that some "big ones manufacturers" mix stuff exactly proofs point there.

And theres even difference in Dominator series (which should have been the best) and XMS/XMS2 aren't even worth mentioning. For me Kingmax is best after TwinMos and SuperTalent but that doesnt mean nothing cause someone else have different experience. And Kingmax is usually much cheaper than those two i point out.

stop the fighting :) kiss and make up
:D I just try to point out my view. I dont try to convince him into it :D
