OC3d Review: Super Talent PC2-8000 DDR2 2GB Kit

"Super Talent may be relatively unheard of in the UK market but they are certainly no newcomers to the memory scene. Today I'll be looking at their high-end T1000UX25G modules to see how they fair in the fierce DDR2 market."

This is probably the first OC3D review I'm really saddened by.

XMS man, please if you have time retest these! GKX's should do 600MHz so easy!

Please make sure you were at

Twr - 6

Trrd - 5

Twtr - 3

The RAM should have done 600MHz 5-5-5-5-15 @ 2.5v.

At 1000MHz they should do

CAS - 4

TRCD - 4

TRP - 4

TRAS - 7 (Or Lower, try 6, 5 & 4.)

TRC - 12

TWR - 6

TRRD - 5

TWTR - 3



With 2.2-2.35v.

If the BIOS doesn't have the proper RAM settings available, you can get Memset.

Oh, and test with active cooling (of some sort). D9 pumps out a lot better results with a breeze.

GL man.

Its not having it i'm afraid mate. It does very little over 566mhz with stability.

As for active cooling - it makes it a bit unfair on previously tested modules.

Wow really? That's some TERRIBLE GKX then. Jeez. Most D9GMH does better.

Nevertheless, great review Jim

Could we see a different approach?

Possibly set for 4/3/3/8 and then go for max mhz at 2.4v vs just a show of a rating?

Looking around, many of the other reviews of these kits haven't done even 566mhz

I just tried again, and its a total non-booter at even 580mhz The 680i chipset has many more options over the P965/975X so mebe i'll explore some of those tomorrow.

Um Nicks, GKX generally wants more than 2.4V thats why.

Unfortunately it wouldn't even go down to 4-3-3-12 @ 2.4v

Nice review Jim

looks like really badly bined GKX memory 4-4-4-12 at 2.4V

my memory does 1050 4-4-4-12 with 2.2V

cellshock GKX and GMH memory have 8 layer PCB this really helps them OC better and handle more voltages

8-Layer PCB is gimmicky IMO. If it was that good, other manufs would be all over it too.

@ NOL, I don't think GKX likes that much more voltage than GMH. All I know is, GMH is very sensitive to voltage and WILL degrade >2.3v.
