Overclocking Results Continued
- Corsair PC4000
Hitting speeds of 250MHz is already an accomplishment and a lot of people are going to be very happy with these speeds. Having a play around with the voltages we were able to achieve a max overclock of 258MHz overclock. The timings on the Corsair PC4000 are already quite relaxed so we didn't think there would be too much head room for the Corsair PC4000 to overclock.
Corsair didn't do too bad a job in the overclocking department it was just a bit disappointing that we were unable to get an overclock out of the PC3500 memory.
- Crucial PC3200
Crucial being made of higher quality chips like the Kingmax, we knew it would love the extra voltage.
Being able to achieve a maximum stable overclock 234MHz @ 3.2 Volt is excellent for memory that is only rated at PC3200 and CAS 3. While it is one of the lower overclocks out of all the memory, we will see if it can still keep up with the rest.
- Transcend PC3200
Thanks to the Samsung chips we were hoping to get a slightly better then average overclock and we were able to get all the way to 248MHz. While the memory is only 2MHz slower then the Kingmax and up to 12MHz with the fastest memory module, we will see how it goes when comparing to the others as the Transcend modules seemed to lag behind in all other tests when running at DDR400 speeds.
- OCZ PC4000
OCZ have come quite far in the past 12 months and there is no doubt in our mind that since the release of the Intel Canterwood and Springdale chipsets, OCZ has had a real chance to shine. Talking to OCZ they let us know that we should be right to hit up to 3.2V without causing any troubles. We don't recommend using this high on a 24/7 basis but if you're simply doing it for testing, make sure you have some extra cooling on the memory.
Moving up to 3.2V we were able to achieve a maximum overclock of 260MHz and we are pondering that the processor may be our limitation. We have all intentions of looking into these modules further when we have a processor capable of a FSB up to and over 280MHz. We are sure there is still a bit of headroom on the modules.
