I wasn’t blown away with anything
I’ve observed, good or bad. I
believe the Corsair Value Select is a good product. I found it to be
stable in all the o/c settings that it could handle Win98 at.
Although it was a bit slower than the Apacer RAM, as you can
see, it did overclock a bit higher.
The form factor of the Ram itself would also appeal to those
who are using an Alpha cooler on the CPU, as it might allow that
extra “squeeze” room needed for them suckers.
Using the Quake 3 timedemo resulted
in identical FPS scores at all FSB settings.
Running at 1024X764/32bit/all eye candy on:
30FPS. At default
high settings: 47 FPS.
A possible bottleneck at the video card level, so these numbers were
this review is targeted at those who are wondering what the best way
to spend limited amounts of upgrade money would be.
Would adding more RAM to your system be the best way to go?
It depends. On
this system, a faster CPU and video card are also needed.
If you already have 128 MB’s of RAM, the CPU and video card
might warrant your attention. If
your clunking away with 64 MB’s, with RAM prices the way they are
now, this is a very wise investment.
