Test System Setup
Processor: Intel Core 2 Extreme X6800 (Supplied by Intel)
Motherboard: Gigabyte P965-DQ6 (Supplied by Gigabyte)
Hard Disk: 500GB Seagate 7200.9 SATA (Supplied by Seagate)
Graphics Card: 2x MSI Radeon 1950PRO in Crossfire (Supplied by MSI)
Cooling: Gigabyte 3D Galaxy II (Supplied by Gigabyte)
Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP SP2
Drivers: Intel INF 126.96.36.1991, ATI Catalyst 7.1 and DX9c
While we did start our testing on the nVidia nForce 680i chipset, we also tested on the Intel P965 chipset just to see what we could get. The results appeared identical in terms of maximum clock speed attainable. We used Gigabyte's P965-DQ6 motherboard in our benchmark results so we could use Crossfire in our game tests to eliminate the VGA as the bottleneck in our results.
Our tests put the OCZ FlexXLC Edition memory (2 x 1GB in dual channel) up against the Corsair PC2-8500 (also 2 x 1GB in dual channel) at DDR2-800 at SPD, DDR2-800 at the tightest timings possible and then at 1200MHz DDR for the OCZ memory with the timings on SPD.
We managed to run the OCZ memory at timings of 4-4-4-15 at 800MHz DDR without any problems and the Corsair memory operated at 4-5-4-18 at 800MHz DDR for its tightest timings and 1066MHz for its highest memory clock with relaxed timings.
Let's get things underway and check out the performance numbers!
