Corsair TwinX XMS PC4000 2GB DDR Memory Kit

Until recently, going with more than 1GB of RAM had some pitfalls. It was outrageously expensive for 1GB modules, and if you went with 4 512MB modules you would either lose your low latency or FSB speed. Not so anymore, a few companies are producing low-latency high speed 2GB DDR kits and, of course, Corsair is among them. The RAM that I will be checking out here is from the infamous Corsair XMS line, the Corsair TwinX XMS PC4000 2GB memory kit done up in Platinum color."

Crucial Ballistix PC2-8000

It took quite some time for DDR-2 to take a considerable piece of the market, but eventually it did. Although AMD seems unwilling to support it up to today, most Intel based systems seem to require it, especially after the release of the latest chipsets which do not support DDR at all. Companies began releasing faster and faster DDR-2 modules this whole year, and they already reached the extremely fast PC2-8000 modules, which are rated for 500MHz (1000MHz DDR). The only motherboards that can even support that kind of speed are some of the better 955X based motherboards and even so only when running Intel EE 1066MHz FSB processors, or when they are overclocked of course. Crucial sent us a 1GB kit (2X512MB matched pair) of PC2-8000 modules, so let us check what kind of potential these modules possess.

OCZ Dual Channel PC-3200 Gold GX XTC

OCZ Technology has become a major player in the performance memory market. If someone posts a question on a forum asking for a recommendation about what ram to buy, I can guarantee you that OCZ will always be mentioned, and more than once. For good reason, many people have had great success with OCZ ram for their overclocking experiences. It performs great and has low timings, which have become something that people are looking for now when they buy ram. OCZ has taken things a step further with the introduction of their new XTC line which features a new type of heatspreader, it has a honeycomb pattern of ventilation on it to produce better airflow and keep the ram cooler. So today for review that is just what I have; PC3200 2x512mb Dual Channel Gold Edition GX XTC Ram, running at 2-2-2-5. Let's check this stuff out!

Crucial Ballistix PC2-8000

The Ballistix modules come into a small sealed antistatic bag each, nothing too special about it though. Quite usual for Ballistix modules, they are built on a black PCB and feature golden heatspreaders. The heatspreaders feel light, so they probably are aluminum, but DDR-2 chips do not get very warm to begin with. At the middle of the striking gold heatspreaders, the Ballistix logo adds to the appearance of the modules. The heatspreaders appear to be attached very well, as there are no gaps between the heatspreaders and the module chips. That is a very good thing, since a badly attached heatspreader does much more damage than it can do for good.
