|-- Overclocked Scores
-- Page: 1
Our next step is to bump this a bit higher than what
is reported to support. As per Crucial's comment, these
modules are NOT supported when under overclocked situations.
With overclocking, stability is hit or miss. Each module is
not like one another, you win some, you lose some. We take
ours to 150:
Sisoft Sandra Memory Benchmark (150)
At 150, it surpasses the default benchmark
in Sisoft Sandra for PC2100. If we could hold 166FSB, we'll most
likely match RDRAM or surpass it. A FYI, at 150FSB, we are doing
600Mhz due to QDR (quad data rate) on the i845.
Here are the Q3A Frames per second benches:
At 150FSB, our frame rates are raised a
good amount more. We actually pushed this module to about 162FSB
and we posted at 166, but Windows XP Pro. crashed upon boot.
With good marks and a low price, its hard
to go wrong with one of Crucial's DDR modules. There is a PC2700
module coming out in the future from Crucial. Hopefully it can can also perform just as well, if not better, as this one.
Thanks to Crucial
for sending us out a test module. I've always used them for my
memory solutions due to excellent quality and customer satisfaction.
- Affordable at the moment
- Performs nicely at higher speeds
- Quick shipment from Crucial on all orders (don't you hate it
when you order something and it takes forever to get to you?)
- Operates all the way to 2.7v (not recommended)
- Not much, this ram kicks hard.
