GeIL Value DDR2-1000 PC2-8000

Although Golden Emperor International LTD, or better known as GeIL, may not have the influence in the PC memory industry as say Corsair, OCZ, or Mushkin, they certainly offer a vast amount of system memory modules. In addition to their SO-DIMM, DDR, and DDR2 lineups, they also sport the DAVID (Digital Audio Video Intelligent Device) series with flash drives and MP3 players as well as manufacturing performance-oriented thermal compound. Last November we reviewed the GeIL DDR2 Ultra PC2-5300 system memory, which performed well and we had managed to push it to DDR2-843 speeds with 5-5-5-15 timings. While Intel's latest LGA-775 Chipsets (975/955/945) support DDR2-800/667, and Advanced Micro Device's AM2 Socket is expected to allow DDR2-800/667, these specifications have not stopped memory manufacturers from pushing the limits for DDR2 to satisfy the intense bandwidth sought after by overclockers and high-end processors. The fastest official DDR2 speed is presently PC2-8000 DDR2-1000MHz for the consumer public. Keeping up with the RAM industry, Golden Emperor International LTD has ventured into DDR2-1000 but the surprising part, however, is that they have not pushed their Ultra Series up to these higher frequencies but the Value Series has made the jump to 1.00GHz! GeIL's PC2-8000 DDR2-1000MHz Dual Channel Kit is designed to operate at 1000MHz with 5-5-5-15 timings and voltages up to 2.3V. The system memory kit is available in 1024MB and 2048MB capacities, with the ones in front of us today being 2 x 512MB.

Features:

· PC2-8000 DDR2 1000MHz
· CAS 5-5-5-15
· Available in 1GB & 2GB Dual Channel Kit
· Hand-picked 64Mx8 DDR2 Chips
· 240 pin, Non-ECC, Un-buffered DIMM
· Brushed Aluminum Heat Spreader
· Working Voltage: 1.9V - 2.3V (Currently 2.3V)
· Retail Package
· Lifetime Warranty

GeIL's Value Series DDR2 comes in retail packaging and also features a lifetime warranty. The memory kit came in similar packaging to the GeIL Ultra except for a few alterations to the packaging in order to reflect the new specifications. Unlike the foam pallet that was used with the DDR2-667 Ultra, the DDR2-1000 Value used a plastic frame to ensure a safe delivery. In addition to the dual channel kit was a GeIL notification for following recommended voltages as well as checking the SPD specifications.
