A-DATA Vitesta DDR2-800 Extreme
While Corsair and OCZ always seem to lead the pact with new system memory heatspreaders (such as OCZ's Reaper HPC or Flex XLC), A-DATA uses very simple red heatspreaders to cover the ICs. Printed on the heatspreaders is A-DATA with its logo along with Vitesta and Extreme Edition. On the heatspreader, the sticker reiterates that the modules are NVIDIA EPP supported and they are rated to run at 800MHz with 4-4-4-12 timings, but can run at 1066MHz with 5-5-5-16 timings.
The Linux hardware we had used for conducting the A-DATA Vitesta DDR2-800 Extreme Edition testing consisted of an AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+, Abit NF-M2 nView motherboard, SeaSonic 700W PSU, NVIDIA GeForce 8600GT graphics card, and a Seagate 200GB hard drive. Software-wise we had loaded up Fedora 7 i686 with the Linux 184.108.40.206 kernel and the NVIDIA 100.14.19 driver.
We had run the A-DATA Vitesta DDR2-800 Extreme Edition memory at DDR2-800MHz with 4-4-4-12 timings and the CPU running at its stock frequency of 2.2GHz followed by DDR2-1066MHz with 5-5-5-16 timings and the CPU running at 2.92GHz. For comparison we had used OCZ's Reaper HPC 2GB memory kit and ran it at DDR2-800 with 4-4-4-12 timings.
