Today we will be testing the X-Tune memory we recently reviewed from Aeneon along with our trusty Geil memory against the Chaintech APOGEE DDR2 modules. Our stock clock tests are done at DDR2-800 speeds, as this is the highest JEDEC speed recognised for both Intel and AMD. While Phenom does support DDR2-1066MHz memory, this isn't recognised for Intel, so 800MHz will do.

 

Our overclocking tests were done with the modules running a 1:2 memory ratio to try and keep the FSB and CPU out of being a limiting factor.

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