Geil DDR-433 Platinum Memory Review - Conclusion

DDR-400 is still yet to be approved as an official industry standard by JEDEC. This hasn't stopped several companies releasing DDR-400 memory, and even faster. Geil is one such company who accelerated in this area who went ahead and released their DDR-433 solution. Cameron "Sov" Johnson took time to put the memory through our usual torture tests to see how it stood up to the challenge with the most aggressive timings we could possible throw at it.

Conclusion

 

Geil, like Corsair and XtremeDDR have done a fine job in putting together hand picked chips for higher than average quality memory. Speeds were remarkable as was the overclocking potential of this memory.

 

With abilities to withstand voltages up to 3.0v on the DDR memory bus, this memory is built to take the most aggressive of punishments. While we were very hard on the DDR-400 memory that was released to us earlier for testing, this new module shows what can be done with a little extra care.

 

Pros

 

- Fast

 

- Stable

 

- Operates 400Mhz with aggressive timings

 

- Built for extreme overclocking

 

- Cheaper than Corsair

 

Cons

 

- Still pricy for memory

 

- Availability in Australia is limited.
