Kingmax DDR-400 SDRAM Review - Conclusion

Just recently there has been a great deal of talk about DDR-400 memory. Talk regarding supply for current and future chipsets including nVidia's nForce2 and the SiS 648. Kingmax were the first to bring DDR-333 memory to the market and again they have come out first with their DDR-400 SDRAM. There's been talk of poorly performing PC3200 memory from the Taiwanese company before now, Kingmax confirmed to us these were not modules with actual 5ns chips like the authentic DDR-400 memory from Kingmax which Cameron "Sov" Johnson bench tested today!

Conclusion

 

Lately there have been some rumors going around that Kingmax's DDR-400 is a dud, from our tests have proven to be false. Kingmax DDR-400 does indeed do 400Mhz without any problems. Early samples have had some errors apparently been recorded. However, very few of these modules have made it to market. Most of the modules floating around were merely test samples sent out that have gotten into retail channels and are not true DDR-400.

 

Kingmax have placed a quality and stable product into the market and I have no hesitations with my recommendations of this memory.

 

Pros

 

-Fast

 

-Stable

 

-Available in 128/256/512MB sticks for price/performance

 

-Overclocks well

 

-Compatible with all chipsets

 

Cons

 

-Very rare to purchase at this point in time

 

-No style - Head spreader would have been nice

 

We rate this product 9.5 out of 10 and TweakTown's Editors Choice Award
