In this test, we will be comparing 16 GB performance between JEDEC profile (2133 MHz 15-15-15 @ 25) with Profile 2 (2400 MHz 13-15-15 @ 2T) and Profile 1 (2667 MHz 13-15-15 @ 2T) using the Kingston HyperX HX426C13SB2K2/16 kits. Another kit is added to see the between with 16 GB and 32GB kits (2666 MHz 13-15-15 @ 2T).

Benchmarks are done with Core i7 8700K @ 4.3 GHz. CPU fans set at High Speed.
