Is it me, or did the author contradict himself in the following two consecutive statements about the DDR3-2133 C9 modules on page #4.
First we have the statement about the Samsung chips being used:
Besides the specs, we can note the version number in the stickers. The components are different again. Version 4.13 denotes Samsung chips which are not very popular in memory modules for enthusiasts.
Then after the pic of the naked module showing the HCH9 ICs, he adds this statement:
The original marking is retained on the chips of the DDR3-2133 kit. As you can see, the CMD8GX3M2A2133C9 modules use Samsung’s HCH9 chips which have come to be frequently used in overclocker-friendly products some of which are quite impressive.
So which is it? Actually, the second one is, as Samsung HCH9s are fine overclockers, among the best memory chips currently available.
