PC2 9384 translates into DDR2-1173, or an actual speed of 586MHz. If your board can handle that FSB, the fairly low timings of 5-5-5-15 will help to speed up your system, and as the warranty will still cover you at 2.2V, you should be able to get some overclocking out of these DIMMs. TweakTown had difficulties finding a board that could keep up with

Crucial's Ballistix PC3-12800 CL8 BL2KIT12864BA1608 DDR3 1600MHz 2x1GB RAM has a really long name to remember when you try to buy some, but it is worth doing. Not only does the stock speeds and latency offer some incredible performance, Benchmark Reviews managed to push the RAM to 1825MHz. The lack of XMP support is this kits bigg
Introduction to Domination
Corsair shows us another DDR3 Dominator installment: this time using Intel Extreme Memory Profiles to overclock to 1800 MHz on a CAS 7 latency. Sure DDR3 is still expensive, but now it's also fast and easy to overclock!

Patriot's Extreme Performance 2GB PC2-9600 DDR2-1200MHz seems to be running as fast as it can go on it's factory defaults. No matter what Overclockers Club tried, they could not get the DIMMs to be stable at even a 5MHz frequency bump. That's not to say you shouldn't consider this RAM, it's EPP function worked perfectly on the 680i motherboard t

DDR3 is getting faster, and now that we are seeing DIMMs reaching the 1800MHz range, most boards actually need to be overclocked to reach those speeds. Without one of the more overclocking friendly boards, you probably won't be able to hit full speed. X-bit Labs had the chance to try two new modules, and contrast them to the three they have previously seen in the same speed range with a little help from an X38 board.

Legit Reviews puts Corsair's TWINX Dominator Dual Channel 1800MHz DDR3 against it's self in a battle of timings. It is rated to run with 7-7-7-20 at 1800MHz, but LR discovered that at 1333MHz, it can run at 4-4-4-12 timings. Of course the obvious next step was to run it at those to speeds, as well as 7-7-7-20 at 1300MHz, to see what differences appear.

Over at Benchmark Reviews you can see SuperTalent's new W1800UX2GP 2GB RAM kit, which runs 1800MHz @ 7-7-7-21 and needs only 2.0 volts to do it. As you might expect, there are quite a few options with RAM that runs this fast, by backing off on the clock speed you can get tighter timings, or you can try to push it faster on the FSB, though not too much further.
