GSKILL Extreme Series (HZ) DDR I PC4000 Dual Channel Review

Memory by KeithSuppe @ 2005-12-24

GSKILL?s foray into the Western overclocking community was explosive. While their early modules were ergonomically challenged; without heatspreader and barren, they packed quite a performance punch. Today we test the Extreme Performance PC4000 in 2048MB Dual Channel kit form.

GSKILL has a slight advantage over the competition and while this is a prima facie result of latencies, all things are equal since Corsair's timings also result from setting the memory at SPD. Corsair was also rated at 3-4-4-8; however, under SP it ran at 3-3-38. This further supports a slight advantage with GSKILL. The system including BIOS version was unchanged ensuring no variables were introduced.
