While AMD enthusuasts await the day they can use DDR2, memory makers are continuing to improve the speed, since Intel chipsets do support it.  Neoseeker reviews Crucial's Ballistix PC2-6400 (800Mhz), a perfect example of how tight timings (4-4-4-10) can push performance to almost equal the performance of PC2-8000 (1000Mhz).

"The Crucial PC2-6400 got the second highest score here -- it was only 4.2% slower than the

Corsair PC2-8000, even though the PC2-8000 was running at a 25% faster memory clock

Overclockers Online put the new OCZ EL DDR PC-4000 Gold GX XTC 2GB through it's paces.  Not only do you get the benefit from the already tight timings of 3-4-3-8, these modules are not particularly hot, nor will you need to overcolt them.  The overclocking potential is not huge, but the DIMM's give a respectable showing right out of the box.

There's been a lot of discussion recently about various heat spreader types and which type provides the best performance. Or, perhaps, if the best performance results from using no heat spreader at all. We were curious ourselves as to the answers to these questions, so we set out to test the various heat spreader types in a controlled environment.

OCZ give you a higher OC with less power

Motherboards.org pushed OCZ's PC3500GX memory as hard as they could, while keeping the voltage low.  If you are looking for RAM that OC's well, without the added wear and tear that overvolting can cause, this is one attractive module.

"Considering that we easily pegged 245MHz at 2-2-2-5 with just 3.2V and no errors, and 250MHz with

the same timings and voltages with only minor errors, OCZ has come out swinging with a winner, now

offering the same low latencies that VX offers albeit with much lowe

AnandTech takes a second look at 1GB RAM DIMMs (part 1 was here).  This go around they test 6 DIMM's, most based on Infineon memory modules, but one with Samsung and one with Micron.  Drop by and see if these new DIMM's offer more advantage than you might expect.

"There are many reasons to choose a 2GB kit over a 1GB kit or 4 512MB DIMMs.

Legit Reviews sits down for a chat with one of the co-founders of Corsair Memory, John Beekley, and you are invited.  Take a peek at what Corsiar has coming up over the year, and hear about what they did in 2005 from someone who knows.

"LR: Let's talk about the future of computer memory in 2006. It looks like we are going to see DDR3 and FB-DIMM's enter into the market space this year. Which should enthusiasts be more interested in?


John: I think that 2006 will be all about DDR2, actually.

Good ram at a good price

Virtual Hideout has found a good deal, in GeIL's Value Dual Channel PC3200 kit.  You get 2 gigs of RAM, for about the price of 1 gig of performance level RAM, and while you won't win any speed contests, you may appreciate the extra RAM more than the extra 2 Mhz on your FSB.

"This ram is some of the cheapest 2GB of ram that I could find online and certainly the best

looking in this price range. For the price of 1 GB in high-end ram, you can get 2GB.

Legion Hardware takes a look at high performance XMS and Value Select RAM from Corsair with something different in mind.  They run some tests to see if putting all that money into high FSB and low latency RAM is actually worth it for the casual gamer, who doesn't really like overclocking.

"At the end of the day it's best to work out what your needs are. For general usage XMS memory is

pretty much a waste of good memory, the same even applies to users that spend a fair bit of time

gaming.
