Super Talent DDR2-800 T800UX2GC4

Up on the review block this morning is one of Super Talent's offerings when it comes to running at DDR2-800, and is the T800UX2GC4 part to exact. This dual channel kit features two 1GB DIMMs with SPD timings of 4-4-3-8. However, this memory did not go through our labs without reaching a sticky situation.

GeIL Value DDR2-1000

Last year we had the Ultra PC2-5300 memory from Golden Emperor International LTD. This memory ran respectively at DDR2-667MHz and it had maxed out at DDR2-843MHz speeds. Since then GeIL has released a new set of memory modules -- GeIL Value PC2-8000 DDR2 Dual Channel Kit. Today we have the modules that are rated to run at 1.0GHz and are designed to break the performance barrier with Intel 955X Chipsets. We have cradled the GeIL DDR2-1000MHz modules inside of an Abit AW8-MAX v1.0 and are taking these modules for the ride of their life.

OCZ PC2-4200 1GB Gold GX XTC

Back on the first of this year, we had OCZ Technology's EL PC-4000 2GB Gold GX XTC in our penguin testing labs, and overall it fared quite well along with being accompanied by the new Xtreme Thermal Convection heatspreader. Now a week later, we are back with more GX XTC testing but now we have their recently released DDR2 modules. How do these new PC2-4200 modules perform? Well we had no troubles pushing them past DDR2-736MHz with the default being 533MHz.

OCZ EL PC-4000 2GB Gold GX XTC

OCZ's latest XTC (Xtreme Thermal Convection) heatspreaders have been receiving a fair amount of praise around the Internet, but barely any have actually bothered to dissect and explore the aluminum and mesh cooling device. With us today we have the EL DDR PC-4000 Gold GX XTC 2GB kit from the folks over at OCZ Technology.

OCZ EB DDR PC-4000 2GB Platinum

Up on the review block today is OCZ Technology's EB DDR PC-4000 2 x 1024MB Platinum Edition. Although we have seen countless reports under Windows XP on how an extra 1024MB of system memory can be beneficial, in particular games and applications, we have done this comparison with the Linux 2.6.14 kernel and have discovered some intriguing results.

GeIL Ultra PC2-5300 DDR2-667

Golden Emperor International Ltd, or better known as GeIL, has facilities located in the United States, Taiwan, and China since they began offering their wares in 1997. Although GeIL may not be making as many product launches as the folks over at OCZ or Corsair, they have made their share of memory advancements. Up for review today is GeIL's Ultra PC2-5300 667MHz DDR2 Ultra 2 x 512MB Dual Channel Kit.

Corsair XMS2-5400UL

Although Corsair's XMS2 TWIN2X1024-8000UL memory modules, which are rated for 1000MHz compatibility on Intel-based motherboards, have taken some of the spotlight away from their famed TWIN2X1024A-5400UL modules, these DDR2-667 modules continue to be popular with enthusiasts due to their cheaper price point and phenomenal overclocking abilities. While sticking to its DDR2-675MHz speeds the memory can run at impressive 3-2-2-8 timings, and when loosening the timings they can breach the 1GHz barrier. Of course, none other than Micron's "Fatbody" D9 ICs powers these modules.

Crucial Ballistix DDR2-800

When it comes to system memory, Crucial Technology is a name that comes to mind for many enthusiasts. Unlike a majority of the other system memory manufacturers, Crucial employs its own DRAM chips manufactured by their parent company - Micron Technology. Not only does Crucial utilize Micron chips on its memory modules but it also brings fourth superior technical support and competitive prices. Up for testing in this article is Crucial's Ballistix DDR2-800 PC2-6400 2 x 512MB memory modules.
