In testing the KLEVV Urbane 8GB DDR3-2400 memory kit (IMT451U6MFR8Y-AB1), I tested it with a Gigabyte Z97X Gaming G1 WiFi BK motherboard powered with an Intel Core i7-4770K. I tested the memory in various clock speeds starting from 1866MHz up to 2800MHz, and with a CPU clock speed of 3.9GHz. Below are the rest of the system specs and memory configurations:
Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z97X Gaming G1 WiFi BK
Processor: Intel Core i7-4770K
CPU Cooler: DeepCool Captain 360
Memory: KLEVV Urbane 8GB DDR3-2400
Graphics card: None
Storage Drive: Samsung 850 Pro 256GB
Power Supply: Seasonic 1050W Platinum
Chassis: DimasTech Bench Table Easy V3.0
Below is a CPU-Z screenshot of the system where the CPU is running at 3.9GHz and the memory is configured using the Intel XMP Profile.
The Klevv Urbane DDR3 memory was tested using the following configurations:
- (2x4GB) 1866 MHz 9-10-9-24 @1.5V
- (2x4GB) 2133 MHz 10-12-12-28 @1.6V
- (2x4GB) 2400 MHz 11-13-13-31 @1.65V (via Intel XMP Profile)
- (2x4GB) 2666 MHz 12-13-13-32 @1.65V
- (2x4GB) 2800 MHz 13-15-15-38 @1.65V
Klevv Urbane 8GB DDR3 Benchmark Results
In benchmarking the Urbane DDR3 memory, I used AIDA64’s cache and memory benchmark, MaxxMEM² memory benchmark, wPrime Benchmark v2.1, and to simulate real world usage I used Asus RealBench 2.4. Below are the results:
Honestly, the results I got with the Klevv Urbane are better compared to the results I got with the Klevv Genuine, at least for this specific kit sample. I see a steady increase in performance as I increased the memory speed from 1866MHz up to 2800MHz. The performance is also at least on par with the Genuine DDR3, and sometimes the Urbane does better at certain scenarios or benchmark.
I wasn’t able to push it further beyond 2800MHz and I’ll definitely need more time to figure it out. I’m sure the timings can still be trimmed down a bit to further improve performance. Nevertheless, with simple overclocking, I was satisfied with the results I got and was impressed with the Klevv Urbane’s performance.
