Crucial 256MB PC2100 DDR-RAM Review

Crucial has been making a name for themselves for the past year or two. Head on over to Mikhailtech and see what they have to say about Crucial 256MB PC2100 DDR_RAM. here's a snip:

 

"The stick itself bears the general characteristics of most units made with Micron chips. it's a 256mb part, PC2100, CL2.5, unbuffered, non-parity, 2.5v, arranged in a 32meg x 64 array. Also, it's the usual 184-pin DIMM with a 64-bit data path. There's no ECC and it's not registered, so don't expect to use more than three of these sticks in a motherboard that has 4 slots (like the Abit KG7-R). Unlike a lot of manufacturers, Crucial memory is made from a 6-layer PCB as opposed to the 4-layer build of the competition. Speaking of competition, I decided to pit it up against another 256mb part I got. I'm referring to the previously reviewed Micron DDR stick."

Micron 256MB PC2100 DDR SDRAM Review

Mikhailtech has just posted a review of some Micron PC2100 DDR SDRAM. here's a snip:

 

"With the maturation of the DDR chipset, newer memory is becoming more and more efficient and the gains over PC133 are becoming apparent as ever. Price used to be a major factor, but now that SDRAM and DDR are close in cost, there's not need to go for the slower stuff. We all know Crucial memory rocks, but that's not the point. Today we're taking a look at a "major brand" stick of PC2100 made with Micron chips."

PQI PC133 SDRAM Review

OCAU wants to share some scoop with you concerning some PQI PC133 SDRAM. here's a snip:

 

"Another interesting thing is that both the printed circuit board the chips rest on and the chips themselves are marked PQI, as opposed to some other sticks where the PCB is made by the "named" manufacturer, but they use chips from other people. PQI, or Power Quotient International, are a Taiwanese company making a range of memory products from flash cards right through to PC-166 SDRAM. The fact that they even have a website sets them apart from some of the more generic manufacturers. But anyway, as always, the proof is in the testing.."

PC2100 DDR Round-up

AcidHardware decided to do a little comparison shopping for you. Head on over and check out their latest PC2100 DDR Round-up. They dare to compare PC2100 sticks of RAM from OCZ, Mushkin, and Crucial. here's a snip:

 

"DDR RAM whilst only offering about a 15% performance increase over SDRAM has seen a surge in popularity ever since its mainstream integration on the original Nvidia Geforce 256 graphics card. Ever since then, DDR has only really been seen as an option for AMD equipped systems. Although there has been the option of the VIA Apollo Pro 266 chipset which allows you to utilize DDR ram on Socket370 motherboards it has yet to catch on."

ODIN PC2400 DDR Gamer's Memory Review

Memory just keeps getting faster and faster, and DDR isn't any exception. got|apex? has just posted a review of some fast stuff that is designed with only one thing in mind...PERFORMANCE! Does it make the grade? Check out their take on some ODIN PC2400 DDR Gamer's Memory. here's a snip:

 

"The Absolute ODIN sets itself apart from other cheaper online memory modules with its guarantee that it will operate at 300MHz with a CAS Latency of 2-2-2. When first approached by Absolute to review their ODIN memory I warned them that with that price point it would most likely not score to well and in fact they may wish to reconsider. Upon further research I now understand their confidence in the pricing of their product."

Kingmax PC166 SDRAM Review

OCAU takes a look at some Kingmax PC166 SDRAM to see if it's worth the price of admission. here's a little snip:

 

"In recent times there has been much talk about new RAM technology - first there was RAMBUS and more recently the introduction of Double Data Rate or DDR RAM. While it's true that these new technologies may offer performance benefits, the fact remains that the vast majority of current systems run plain old SDRAM. This review is going to look at some SDRAM - but there is nothing plain or old about it. Kingmax rate this stuff to 166MHz @ CAS3.. and if that doesn't say "overclocker" then I don't know what does."

Tweakmonster's Copper RAM Sinks Review

we've seen RAM sinks before, but copper ones? DreddNews has some and they want to share the news with you concerning Tweakmonster's Copper RAM Sinks. here's a snip:

 

"Just when you thought he'd made the best product in the world, he makes it even better. Today we're taking a look at a new revision of the Tweakmonster's ever so popular all copper RAMsinks. From my knowledge, these babies are a one of a kind product that you can't get from anyone else. They are completely CNC machined to perfection...every time(at least we hope). When you think Tweakmonster, you think of high quality. He is best remembered for his super-high quality copper CPU spacers(reviewed here), and I don't expect anything less from these RAMsinks. If your RAM is running hot, you want that final touch to make your custom case mod "truly" custom, or both, these RAMsinks just may be what you want."
