mushkin_2gb_xp2_6400_3

Mushkin’s current XP2-6400 DDR2-800 memory is not only highly overclockable, but also reasonably priced. The high performance of the DDR2 800 modules exceeds the expectations and the reason becomes clear with a look under the heatspreader. Because Mushkin uses the well-known Micron D9GMH memory chips on the tested modules and these memory chips are also used on high-end DDR2-1200 modules. Just the maximum allowed memory voltage for the Mushkin XP2-6400 RAM is a little bit lower with 1.9 Volt up … Continue reading Mushkin XP2-6400 2x1024MB PC2-6400/DDR2-800 (996523) Memory Review

crucial_2gb_pc2_4200_4

In the last months there were speculations in many forums regarding the Micron ICs used on the very inexpensive Crucial PC2-4200 DDR2 memory modules (e.g. here in our forum).

Crucial Ballistix Tracer DDR2-1066/PC2-8500 2GB Kit BL2KIT12864AL1065 Memory Review

crucial_ballistix_2gb_pc2_8500_4

It is a pleasure to test the new Crucial Ballistix Tracer PC2-8500 memory modules, because memory is not the same as memory. Even if the technical data is equal with some other PC2-8500 modules, at least overclocking separates the wheat from the chaff. The DDR2-1066 memory is available as Ballistix Tracer with integrated LED lighting and as Ballistix without LED’s, so the choice for the additional modding feature is left to the buyer. One thing is certain, the modules would … Continue reading Crucial Ballistix Tracer DDR2-1066/PC2-8500 2GB Kit BL2KIT12864AL1065 Memory Review

Mushkin XP2-8500 2x1024MB PC2-8500/DDR2-1066 (996535) Memory Review

mushkin_2gb_xp2_8500_1

Mushkin shows with their current XP2-8500 DDR2-1066 memory modules that it’s possible to get high performance for low cost. Because ocinside.de was able to overclock an AMD Athlon 64 3000+ Socket AM2 CPU to approx. 3000 MHz and the enormously high memory overclocking up to 600 MHz (DDR2-1200) was an important factor for these results. If you’re using a DDR2 motherboard with some overclocking options, you shouldn’t miss this Mushkin XP2-8500 Review. Thanks for the support … Many thanks for … Continue reading Mushkin XP2-8500 2x1024MB PC2-8500/DDR2-1066 (996535) Memory Review

Crucial 10th Anniversary 2GB Kit (2x1024MB) PC2-5300/DDR2-667 Memory Review The company Crucial should be well known by everyone who is interested in PC or Macintosh hardware and already acquired some memory modules.

Crucial Ballistix 1GB Kit (2x512MB) PC2-6400/DDR2-800 Memory Review Not only Intel PCs are using DDR2 modules, in the meanwhile it is also necessary for AMD PCs to look for DDR2 memory modules. Who like to upgrade for example to a current AMD Socket AM2 system, will find only the newer 240-pin DIMM sockets instead of the usual 184-pin sockets on these motherboards. However, in spite of the higher memory bus range you should expect no miracles.
