PNY XLR8 PC2-9384 Modules
PNY's new memory modules go under the XLR8 (Accelerate) naming scheme. There are currently five kits available in the XLR8 range, all of them 2GB Dual Channel Kits. They range from PC2-6400 (DDR2-800) to PC2-9384 (DDR2-1173). The kits come in a black two piece hardened case made from cardboard; the top comes up to reveal the memory encased in a plastic blister inside which easily comes apart.
On the back of the top lid there is a bit of information on the modules and instructions on how to install the memory modules onto a motherboard. It's all subjective info, you need to locate the slots on your own board but they may not be colour coded like the ones in the PNY pictures, though the basic principal is there and still rather helpful.
Removing the modules from the blister pack we get to see them in all their glory. For a company that's more so into generic products rather than enthusiast level hardware, the XLR8 modules have that extra look and feel about them which makes us take them seriously. The heatsink included on the modules is a full raised design with extended passive cooling fins that stick up well above the modules, this helps to move case air flow across them to cool the modules down more efficiently.
On one side of each of the two modules is a sticker. This sticker has some basic information on the module including the model number, series number, speed, timings and voltage ratings. The kit we receieved was a PC2-9384 kit which translates to DDR2-1173 or a core speed of 586MHz, which if your board can support it you should see 586MHz in CPU-Z, though this depends on a lot of other factors too. The modules are designed to run 5-5-5-15 and at 2.2v without voiding the warranty of the memory. 2.2v is more than enough to overclock most memory, but if you want to go higher and try your luck you can, just be aware that your warranty is null and void above 2.2v.
