This week I was given a chance to look over a pair of Super Talent
Technology Corporation's 2GB (2 x 1GB Dual Channel) DDR2 PC2 8000 T1000UX2G4 overclocked RAM for gamers. The timings for
this set of memory is a tight 4-5-4-15 - compared to the common 5-5-5-15
variety. With 20 years under the belt, Super Talent stands behind their product.
All ram modules are protected with a lifetime warranty.
I'm going to be testing the ram and getting some of the scores based off the
set speed and then running some overclocked benches.
The package is a simple vacuum form of anti-static plastic and gives you the
view of both sides of the modules.
Now the ram heat spreaders are not attached with the clips, but
more along the lines of thermal adhesive.
System I will be testing the RAM modules with:
- Mobo: EVGA 122-CK-NF68-AR (Drivers from CDROM)
- CPU: Intel E6600 (2.4 GHz stock)
- Video: EVGA 8800GTS (Single card – News WHQL Drivers)
- PSU: Antec Trios 650W
- Storage: NEC 3550A DVD, 2 SATA drives 1=160gigs 2=250gigs
- OS: XP Pro (reloaded and updated)
RAM stock spefications:
- 1000 Mhz (PC2 8000)
- 4-5-4-15 timings
- 2.1 volts
Basic tests will include running a suite of tests by Futuremark
and Sandra Lite XI bandwidth test. Stability testing was conducted for a
few hours with Memtest86+ 1.70 on stock speeds before an OS was loaded.
Next I moved over to the baseline testing at stock speed for everything I
might need - Orthos 9+ hours, All of the Futuremark test we have (PCmark05,
3DMark06, 3Dmark05, 3dmark03) and Sisoftware Sandra Lite.
With the Memory set at its stock setting and processor stock as well, we are
running at a 8:15 ratio for the memory.
