Three Way DDR-550 Memory Rumble - GeIL, OCZ and ShikaRAM - The Modules - OCZ PC4400

While companies around the world prepare to introduce DDR-II memory modules to the market place in their various channels, DDR kicks on. We've compared DDR-550 (PC4400) memory modules from GeIL, OCZ and ShikaRAM at their default speeds and overclocked, as far as we could take them, on our ASUS Pentium 4 platform.

- The Modules

 

For the longest time, OCZ has produced a classy looking module and the latest PC4400 modules are no exception. With their gold heatsinks, they really stand out and the pictures we've taken don't really do it any justice.

 

One thing you may notice about these modules, compared to the others, is that the memory from OCZ is actually CAS 2.5 instead of CAS 3 like the other modules in the roundup.

 

 

- Overclocking

 

The last time we had OCZ modules they did exceptionally well - unfortunately then because of our processor/motherboard combination, we couldn't get the speed we wanted out of them.

 

For this roundup we were able to get our hands on the ASUS P4P800 which is extremely well known for its ability to overclock memory to its maximum speeds. We weren't able to get the memory as high as the GeIL memory. The maximum overclock that was achieved from the OCZ modules was 281MHz (or 562MHz DDR).
