Aeneon XTune DDR2-1142 2GB Memory Kit - Test System Setup and Everest

Our first Aeneon memory was less than stellar; let's see if the company has matured well since then.

Test System

 

Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E8500

 

Motherboard: GIGABYTE X38-DQ6 (Supplied by GIGABYTE)

 

Hard Disk: 500GB Western Digital SE16 (Supplied by Western Digital)

 

Graphics Card: GIGABYTE 9800GX2 (Supplied by GIGABYTE)

 

Cooling: GIGABYTE 3D Galaxy II (Supplied by GIGABYTE)

 

Operating System: Microsoft Windows Vista SP1

 

Drivers: Intel INF 9.0.0.1008, Forceware 175.16

 

Today we will be testing the XTune memory against our Geil memory, and also the recently tested OCZ Flex-II (on air only) which clocked at just about the same level. As always, our stock tests are done with the memory at a ratio to get DDR2-800MHz, as this is the fastest official standard recognised by the JEDEC.

 

Our overclocking was done with the memory at a ratio of 1:2 to prevent the CPU or FSB maxing out; this time it's all about the memory.

During system optimizations and tweaking it provides essential system and overclock information, advanced hardware monitoring and diagnostics capabilities to check the effects of the applied settings. CPU, FPU and memory benchmarks are available to measure the actual system performance and compare it to previous states or other systems.

 

 

 

First on the list; Everest really shows no discernable winner here between the three different kits. All have good performance for DDR2; especially when overclocked.
