The new Reaper series from OCZ really impressed Overclockers Online. Running at 1150 @ 5-5-5-18 straight out of the box they are some of the fastest chips, period. The new cooling solution both adds style to the DIMMs as well as some very good cooling. Once they got down to testing, they found limitations in tightening the timings, but by keeping the timings at the rated intervals, they could get a nice jump in speed.
"The performance of these Reaper HPCs at 5-5-5 certainly was br

AnandTech has grabbed 2 DIMMs of DDR3-1066 running at 7-7-7-20 and an ASUS P5K3 Deluxe. The contrast that pairing with an ASUS P5B Deluxe and Corsair's Dominator DDR2-1111. They varied the speeds to get a better idea of performance, unfortunately there are no DDR3-1333 DIMMs available yet, but when they are they will revisit the test to see what effect the raw speed has. Is timing everything?

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
