G.Skill DDR2 and DDR3 Memory Kits - Overclocking

We've got two G.Skill kits on the table today, a 1000MHz DDR2 and 1600MHz DDR3 kit. Read on to see how they stack up.

Overclocking the Modules

 

DDR2 Modules

 

 

Our DDR2 kit was quite impressive. While it didn't break the 1200 MHz barrier, it did manage 1125 MHz when going just above the 2.1v barrier. This was achieved with 2.2v and reducing the timings a bit. Quite a good result really, especially for a 4GB kit which tends not to fair so well for high clock speeds.

 

DDR3 Modules

 

 

To the DDR3 kit and we managed to hit 1700 MHz stable at 1.9v. However, going beyond this voltage range didn't give us any more stability, so we were quite content with what we got.

 

Important Editor Note: Our maximum overclocking result is the best result we managed in our limited time testing the motherboard. Due to time constraints we don't have enough time to tweak the motherboard to the maximum and find the highest possible FSB as this could take days to properly find. We do however spend at least a few hours overclocking every motherboard to try and find the highest possible overclock in that time frame. You may or may not be able to overclock higher if you spend more time tweaking or as new BIOS updates are released or "burn in" time might come into play if you believe in that.
