-- Corsair Value select 64 meg, PC-133
-- Price: $3
9.99 USD
-- 11.19.2000
-- By: JWCyborg

   A popular, and of late, very economical upgrade to our systems is memory.  Game Hardware has sent us a truly appreciated sample of Corsair Value Select RAM to review.

   What weíll be looking at today is a 168-pin unbuffered PC-133 64MB CAS-3 module, 7.5ns, #CM654S64-133.  The specs for this on the Corsair site state that chips are Micron.  On mine that isnít the case. The sample I have has Siemens chips of the same spec.

   The ram Iím comparing the Corsair to is Apacer PC-133 CAS-3.  The Apacer RAM is fitted with Infineon chips, which Iíve had good luck with.  The testing we are going to do is going to be appreciated most by those who have machines on the lower end of the tech chain, as my setup description will show.

   Test Rig:

  • P-III 450 @ 133-up FSB using an Arctic Circle cooler
  • Asus P3V4X Slot-1 Board Rev. 1003
  • 64MB Corsair Value Select PC-133 CAS-3/128MB Apacer PC-133 CAS-3
  • Creative TNT2U @ 166/200Mhz
  • Win98 SE
