In Search of True DDR2 Bleeding Edge Memory

Overclocking To The Max

For many readers, this third test series may well be the most interesting. Using memory timing values of CL 5.0-5-5-15, every module was run at the highest FSB speed, at which the system would remain stable. In this case, we started the Modules in DDR2-800 or DDR2-888 mode, and raised FSB speed automatically while running a memory test program, until the first errors began to occur. The voltage remained set at a constant 2.2 volts, or we wouldn't have been able to reach the peak values we recorded below.
