DDR3 Shootout - Geil, Kingston & OCZ (Page 6)

By Cameron Johnson from Aug 2, 2007 @ 23:00 CDT
Manufacturer: none

Test System

Processor: Intel Core 2 Extreme X6800 (Supplied by Intel)

Motherboard: Gigabyte P35T-DQ6 (Supplied by Gigabyte)

Hard Disk: 500GB Seagate 7200.9 (Supplied by Seagate Australia)

Graphics Card: MSI 880)GTS 640MB (Supplied by MSI)

Cooling: Gigabyte Neon775 (Supplied by Gigabyte)

Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP SP2

Drivers: Intel INF 8.3.0.1013, Forceware 158.22

We have attempted to keep the test system as close to our DDR2 setup as possible. To this end Gigabyte have supplied us a P35T-DQ6 motherboard. This board is identical to our P35-DQ6, but rather than DDR2 memory it runs DDR3, perfect for our review purposes.
