Legion Hardware sets out to solve a mystery in this article about low latency RAM. The cost difference between a lower latency DIMM and a higher can be enormous, so they test RAM at 5 different speeds and 4 different timings. Can a high frequency overcome a low latency?

X-bit Labs reviews the Acer Aspire 9300, a Turion X2 based machine coupled with Nvidia nForce Go 430 MCP and Nvidia GeForce Go 6100 chipset plus an onboard 7600 Go SE. It is not going to keep up with an Alienware machine, but the combined battery life, and the price/performance ratio might just tempt quite a few people.

Corsair's DOMINATOR Twin2X2048-8888C4DF runs at 1111 MHz with timings of 4-4-4-12. They have Corsair's newly designed heatspreaders, and the DOMINATOR Airflow fan bracket is optional. Thanks to this efficient cooling scheme, 1244 MHz at 4-4-4-12 is reachable, if the voltage is bumped to 2.5V. Be prepared to pay for this performance though, these modules will set you back more than $700. Re

TechSpot is trying to figure out what makes this particular OCZ DDR2 PC2-6400 kit "Crossfire Certified". They are bright red and have an ATI logo on them, but seem no better than the Crucial or Corsair modules they tested it against. They run at 4-4-4-12, needing 2.1V to get up and running and can be pushed to 975MHz @ 5-5-5-12 and 2.2V, so whether Crossfire ready or not, they are not slowpokes.

The TweakTown reviews the fastest RAM on the market, Corsairs' XMS Dominator PC2-10000. Rated at 5-5-5-18 at 625MHz (2.4V), TweakTown could only manage to push them to 627.5MHz at the same timings, or tightened up to 4-3-3-15 at 400Mhz, without changing voltages. The DIMMs also come with active aircooling to keep them going. This are the fastest RAM available at stock speeds, but a question arises, the OCZ FlexXLC comes with watercooling, and
