Kingmax PC2100 DDR SDRAM - Kingmax PC2100 - Page 4

Kingmax made a huge name for themselves when they first started making their TinyBGA memory modules. Now they've done it with their DDR line as well and Cameron "Sov" Johnson is here to let you know if they were successful. So come join the fun and see for yourself if Kingmax has what it takes to jump into the DDR market in our latest review of their PC2100 DDR RAM.

Conclusion

 

Well, all I can say is WOW! Kingmax's first DDR SDRAM sample and already overclocking well. In the past Kingmax did have some problems with its TinyBGA technology, however, these problems were very quickly removed and are to this day able to provide stable and overclockable memory. Another mention on Kingmax's behalf is that while the memory is rated only CL2.5 the memory ran CL2 upto 160Mhz FSB and CL2.5 at 162Mhz. Unfortunately, due to the early sample, the Kingmax RAM wouldn't go above default voltage of 2.5v. Any attempt to run 2.6v or above resulted in instant Windows Crash. So off hand, not bad.

 

Rating - 9.5/10 and TweakTown's Editors Choice Award.
