SuperPI & Cinebench
Super PI is a single threaded benchmark that calculates pi to a specific number of digits. It uses the Gauss-Legendre algorithm and is a Windows port of a program used by Yasumasa Kanada in 1995 to compute pi to 232 digits.
SuperPi is the most sensitive to speed changes of any test we run and here you can see the Corsair kit running at 443.408 seconds on the 32M test, just 2 seconds behind the 3000MHz kit. The 1M test shows it faster than both the 3000MHz kits, an anomaly we tested six times, but the Corsair results held up.

CINEBENCH is a free and useful benchmarking solution for Windows and Mac OS based on the powerful 3D software CINEMA 4D. CINEBENCH is a real-world test suite that assesses your computer’s performance capabilities. MAXON CINEBENCH is based on MAXON’s award-winning animation software, CINEMA 4D, which is used extensively by studios and production houses worldwide for 3D content creation.
MAXON CINEBENCH runs several tests on your computer to measure the performance of the main processor and the graphics card under real world circumstances. The benchmark application makes use of up to 16 CPUs or CPU cores and is available for Windows (32-bit and 64-Bit) and Macintosh (PPC and Intel-based).”
We use the OpenCl test in Cinebench to see if the kits give us more or less FPS in a real world test. The kit gave us a 172.76 FPS 5ish FPS behind the faster rated kits.
