We've started to see an increase in the performance of DDR3 lately.
New kits with higher speeds and tighter timings are coming out everyday.
OCZ was kind enough to send over a set of their platinum series with
fairly tight timings for DDR3. I have a feeling that this kit has
a lot of headroom in it and I'm ready to get to the testing. Let's
find out how far we can push this kit.

OCZ’s hand-tested DDR3 solutions enable ardent
enthusiasts to take advantage of the highly-anticipated Intel P35
platform while experiencing the legendary quality and reliability of OCZ
memory. Initial OCZ DDR3 products will accommodate JEDEC
specifications for third generation Double Data Rate memory. The OCZ
PC3-10666 Platinum Series is rated for 1333MHz and features CL 7-7-7
OCZ Platinum DDR3 modules will be initially available in 2x512MB and
2x1024MB dual channel kits. Each module is 100% hand-tested for quality
assurance and compatibility with the latest Intel P35 motherboards and
feature proprietary platinum-mirrored XTC (Xtreme Thermal Convection)
heatspreaders for the most effective heat dissipation. As part of OCZ’s
line-up of premium memory, the DDR3 series is backed by a Lifetime
Warranty and industry-leading technical support for unparalleled peace
* XTC (Xtreme Thermal Convection) heatspreaders optimize the
thermal management of memory modules by promoting greater airflow by
means of micro-convection throughout what is usually the dead air space
inside conventional heatspreader designs. In this manner, build-up of
heat is avoided and thermal dissipation of the memory components is
offloaded more efficiently through the honeycomb design. At the same
time, mechanical stability is maintained.
**OCZ EVP (Extended Voltage Protection) is a feature that allows
performance enthusiasts to use a VDIMM of 1.95V without invalidating
their OCZ Lifetime Warranty.
