3dGameMan has posted a review of Mushkin's new 4GB kit of PC2-6400 memory with timings of 5-4-4-12. These kits aren't just for gaming, although you will benefit from it, it also helps you to run Vista with better response. If you are an overclocker, there is something even nicer about these DIMMs, they bumped the voltage to 2.2, kept the timings the same and managed to hit 1068MHz.

OCZ's 2GB PC2-9200 Reaper HPC kit is designed for speed and quiet at the same time. The DIMMs are totally covered in a black heatspreader that has a heat pipe running along the top, and extends to another heatspreader located above the DIMM, attached only by the heatpipe. It is timed @ 5-5-5-18 out of the box, and is capable of 642MHz at those timings.

Super Talent's T1000UX2G5 2GB PC2-8000 DDR2 offers great potential, with a 20% overclock possible using the default timings, or you can tighten the timings at 1000MHz. Big Bruin did find little difference between that and the reference PC2-6400 they tested it against, which costs about 1/2 as much. Don't let that deter you from reading the full review, as these DIMMs will allow you more flexibility when

Over at Techware Labs, OCZ's PC2 7200 SLI-Ready 2Gb kit is on the test bench. This RAM may be fast out of the package, but they couldn't say they'd fully tested it without a good overclock, and in this case 1200MHz @ 5-5-5-18 timings by bumping the voltage to 2.4 was the best they could get. Add some active cooling and you may even go beyond.

Mushkin's XP2-9200 runs at 1150MHz @ 5-5-4-12 out of the box, and Overclocker's Club pushed it to 1200MHz without any effort at all. With a different board and a bump in voltage, these DIMMs can probably go even further. As this RAM will keep up with any processor on the market right now, it lets you take full advantage of a 1:1 ratio between RAM and CPU.

HotHardware has posted a review of Corsair's newest Dominator, the TWIN2X2048-10000C5DF. It is a pair of 1GB DIMMs running at PC2-10000 DIMMs with timings of 5-5-5-18-2T at 1250MHz, and sports the Dominator cooling fans and shroud. Because this is pretty much the fastest RAM going, there isn't much room for OCing, but it does come out king in

CellShock and MSC GmbH are probably not names that spring to mind when someone is talking about RAM. However, they have been active in Europe for over 20 years. Legit Reviews takes a look at their DDR2 1000 2GB kit. The DIMMS have a good heatsink, use Micron D9GKX IC's, live on an 8 layer PCB and can hold their own against Corsair.

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

On one side of futureLook's ring is the reigning champion, the Thermaltake Cyclo and in the other corner the challenger, the VIZO Armada. Both offer air cooling for your RAM, and along the way they try to find out if that even has any effect. The Cyclo is a heavyweight, taking up a fair amount of space, but also able to cover 4 DIMMs at a time. The Armada prefers to go one on one by directly attaching to the DIMM, which takes up enough space that Dual Channel is n
