Corsair vs. Super Talent - 1800MHz+ RAM (Page 5)

Manufacturer: none

Test System Setup

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 GeForce 8800GTS 640MB (Supplied by MSI)

Cooling: GIGABYTE Neon775 (Supplied by GIGABYTE)

Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP SP2

Drivers: Intel INF, Forceware 162

Our test platform has not changed since we did our DDR3 shootout. We have kept the P35T-DQ6 motherboard which has shown so much promise in overclocking as well as flexible voltage options.

Today we have done tests with the memory running at 1066MHz, 1333MHz and also at the memory's top overclocked speeds. The Intel P35 chipset with DDR3 support only officially supports 1066MHz DDR3 memory, but using a 333MHz FSB (or 1333QDR) we are able to run 1333MHz on the memory. Our 1066MHz and 1333MHz results are all with the CPU at 3GHz using a 9x multiplier and 333MHz FSB.

Our overclocked results work out to be using a 506MHz FSB and a 7x multiplier for the Super Talent. Our Corsair ran with 463MHz and a 7x multiplier. Both sets were running their default SPD programmed latencies of 7-7-7-20 for the Corsair and 8-8-8-24 for the Super Talent.

EVEREST Ultimate Edition is an industry leading system diagnostics and benchmarking solution for enthusiasts PC users, based on the award-winning EVEREST Technology. During system optimizations and tweaking it provides essential system and overclock information, advanced hardware monitoring and diagnostics capabilities to check the effects of the applied settings. CPU, FPU and memory benchmarks are available to measure the actual system performance and compare it to previous states or other systems.

Starting at 1066MHz and 1333MHz Corsair manages to sneak in front because of its lower latencies across the board. When we started to overclock the memory the Corsair falls well behind because of its inability to go much past 1800MHz.
