Finding a problem with a product that performs above expectation can be quite difficult. Since the Kingmax line of SuperRAM is aimed for the person on a budget it was quite surprising to see that it could perform above its specifications without a problem. What was interesting to find is that even when adjusting the timings to more relaxed settings with increased clock rate, we still see quite an increase in performance. The jump from 217 to 230 was a lot more significant then the 200 to 217 jump.
While we currently don't have pricing on these particular modules, we are pretty sure that it will follow Kingmax's line of value on their SuperRAM series. If these were using Kingmax's more expensive TinyBGA technology, pricing would be a lot higher but since it's simply using the more cost effective TSOP chip, pricing should be quite competitive.
There is no way we are claiming that these are the fastest memory modules on the market, since DDR-500 modules from Corsair can do speeds of 250MHz and higher. Kingmax won't be able to keep up with them, however with the competitive pricing that should follow, these particular modules will suit people who are quite new to overclocking or only require a slight boost in performance from overclocking and importantly, who don't want to spend a fortune on their RAM.
All in all, we have a set of modules which run perfect in Dual Channel mode even at the higher FSB, with a price which will be perfect for a lot of people.
Does what it says and a bit more
Should follow Kingmax's good pricing scheme
Extra speed really helps PC performance
Friendly module for the avid overclocker
Not as good looking as some of their other modules
Only rated at CAS 2.5, although it doesn't seem to be a big deal
