OCZ DDR Booster - Your aid for real RAM overclocking - Test System Setup and Overclocking Results

You've just gone and bought a brand new CPU, motherboard and memory. Once you finish setting up your new system you are ready to begin overclocking the system only to find that your motherboard doesn't have enough voltage to supply the memory. OCZ have come to the rescue with an intuitive device called DDR Booster which provides you with extra DIMM voltage up to 3.9 volts and a cleaner power supply to the memory. It's your aid for real RAM overclocking!

Test System Setup

 

Processor: Intel Pentium 4 3.2GHz EE (800MHz FSB) (Supplied by Spectrum Communications)
Memory: 2x 512MB DDR-533 OCZ (Supplied by OCZ)
Hard Disk: Western Digital 120GB 7,200RPM PATA (Supplied by Plus Corporation)
Graphics Card: ATI Radeon 9800XT (Supplied by Gigabyte)
Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP SP2
Motherboard: ABIT IC7 MAX3

 


Overclocking Results

 

To do our overclocking results we ran a series of 3DMark03 tests over 20 mins each to determine the most stable FSB possible with each voltage step.

 

For this we set the motherboard to use its default DDR voltage and allowed the booster to work its magic. We also tested the booster against the ABIT IC7 MAX3's own DDR voltage to see what works better.

 

 

Here we can see that when pushing beyond 2.8v the ABIT IC7 MAX3's own voltage system is simply not good enough and this is where OCZ manages to really shine as you can see.
