PRODUCT PICTORIAL & WALKTHROUGH (cont'd)


But why is the heatsink bigger?



Housed in the top of each memory heatspreader is an 18 LED display which illuminates when the memory is operating.



Although only inserted for aesthetics, it does add a touch of flare to a usually dull computer component. If you have a windowed case, this memory is for you.

Just as a treat for the reader, I decided to record a small video of the memory in action. Click the above photo to see the memory activity lights performing as I was benchmarking.

 

MEMORY OVERCLOCKING


To test the memory's ability to overclock, I relaxed the timings to 3-8-4-4, locked the divider at the stock setting of 1:1, maxed the memory voltage at 2.8volts and bumped up front side bus until I was able to reach the maximum FSB which had no memory problems and could run all the benchmarking flawlessly with no problems.


Here are the results:


Stock: DDR400
Maximum Memory Overclock : DDR460


As you can see, a 60Mhz bump in speed is a very good overclock and I can assure you, the performance difference was seen throughout the computer's benchmarking. To show you what difference I personally recorded, the results will be included in the benchmarking for your comparison.
