Samsung PC3700

Samsung PC3700 In Detail

We conducted two different tests: for one we checked out the possible timings at memory speeds of 200 MHz and 233 MHz (PC3200/DDR400 and PC3700/DDR466, respectively), for another we determined the overclockability using a short test at 250 MHz memory speed.

In both cases we taxed the system for just fewer than 20 minutes with Prime95, which is outstanding for use in memory tests like these due to its complex calculation of prime numbers.

When running at a speed of 250 MHz (PC4000 and DDR500, respectively) we had to set the timings back to the maximum to ensure stable operation. A lack of a more rugged processor forced us to refrain from any further speed increases.
