Getting close to beating low latency DDR3
Subject: Memory | April 9, 2008 - 06:56 PM | Jeremy Hellstrom
Kingston's PC2-9600 DDR2 (1200MHz) kit runs 5-5-5-15 timings at 2.3V and is just begging to be pushed farther. Big Bruin had no troubles using this RAM to push an E6850 to 400Mhz with a FSB:DRAM ratio of 5:8. Considering how cheap these modules are, if you even suspect your RAM is holding back a better overclock, you might want to invest in this kit.
"Whether it was in benchmarks, gaming, or every day use, the Kingston PC2-9600 DDR2 kit performed well. Getting up and
running at 1200MHz was easier than I expected, and the only effort required was to bump the speed up in the BIOS. Even
overclocking was easy, and the test system was able to push these modules to 1280MHz by simply relaxing the tRAS value
from 15 to 16."
