Crucial 2GB Kit DDR2-533/PC2-4200 ECC CT2KIT12872AA53E Memory Review

The company Crucial offers high performance PC2-8500, PC2-8000, PC2-6400 and PC2-5300 modules, but they also offer several inexpensive DDR2 alternatives like e.g. the PC2-4200 modules. The high performance series of Crucial has been already reviewed and overclocked on, so it’s time to write an overclocking review about the latest 2GB PC2-4200 kit. This Crucial DDR2-533 memory kit supports the ECC (error correction code) feature, which is particularly very important for servers. In this review you’ll see if and how high the current PC2-4200 Crucial RAM with ECC can be overclocked.

Thanks for the support …
