OC3D Review: Crucial Ballistix PC3-16000 (DDR3-2000) 2GB Kit

"With a stock speed of DDR3-2000 Crucial have one extremely fast DDR3 kit on their hands. But will it overclock any further? We find out."

Nice review Jimbo.

I get the whole argument about timings vs mhz but what is odd is that in the Everest Memory Latency tests with 9-9-9-28, the overclocked settings lost by quite a bit even with the same timings. That overclock seemed to bugger them up quite a bit.

Only lil bit of uniformity seemed to be when the 2144mhz at 9-9-9-28 and the 1902mhz at 7-7-7-28 won out in superpi and 3dmark... But even then it reversed to the other two settings in UT.

Man... The argument runs on.

What bites me atm is 4x1g of this is looking at £600 with some possible playing around with volt/timings to accomodate a non set.

They do a 2x2g set for ~£220 or so - now if ur buying components for a new system:

Q6600 + 4x1g (16000 as reviewed) = approx £730/£740 ?

QX9650 + 2x2g (pfft who cares) = approx £770/£780 ? plus u have a load of flexibility.

(figures are up in the air, but there`s a point to be had)

Tell me about it :s For a lot of it you can put it down to certain benches liking the higher OC of the CPU or the lower memory timings, but the DDR3-2144 results are just wierd and something that ASUS are actually trying to reproduce at the moment.
