Mega DDR-2 Memory Roundup - Finding an Overclocking King - The Modules - SyncMAX and Team Group

In this roundup we compare a mixture of DDR-2 memory to work out which offers the best overclocking performance.

SyncMAX Express DDR-2 667

 

SyncMAX are also a new player in the memory module market. We haven't heard much of SyncMAX, let alone seen any of their modules in stores.

 

 

SyncMAX doesn't put any heatspreader on the modules that they sent to us. This is because they are only rated for DDR-2 667MHz speeds.

 

 

The sticker on the front gives some info on the memory speed and ratings. The SyncMAX Express we were sent was rated with timings of 4-4-4-8-2T with 1.8v maximum memory voltage. We could only get 2.0v out of these modules before instability set in - we did manage 828MHz DDR (414MHz) before system stability was compromised.

 

Team Xtreem DDR-2 1000MHz

 

Team Group was one of the companies we managed to gain a tour of just recently, while there we secured some modules to add to our roundup. This is also a new group we have met and before now, didn't realise what they had to offer.

 

 

Team's memory modules are in fact one of the more unique looking modules out there. The spreader looks like s single piece of flat alloy with the Team Xtreem logo in one corner and the Team logo on the other corner.

 

 

The sticker on the front gives quite a bit of info on the modules capabilities. Team has sent these modules into the world with timings of 5-5-5-15-2T. Voltage range for these modules is supported to a maximum of 2.3v, which is quite impressive. We only needed 2.2v as any more resulted in no further overclocking of the RAM.

 

These modules managed a decent speed of 1145MHz DDR (572.5MHz).
