PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS


Price: ~US$400






Now one thing that caught my eye is that Corsair's DDR550 specification is based on testing with only one make and model of motherboard on the market. The Asus P4C800-E is based on the Intel 875P canterwood chipset and is one of the highest quality canterwoods on the market at the moment, but not every overclocker wanting to reach these high memory speeds owns this specific motherboard or even this chipset.


Even through my testing, I wasn't able to hit DDR550 on an Abit IC7-G (Reviewed HERE) which was rather surprising since I have valued and been impressed with this motherboard's overclocking ability. Out of curiosity, I then installed the PC4400 memory in a DFI LANPARTY PRO875 Rev B Canterwood and it hit the DDR550 memory mark at a 1:1 ratio without breaking a sweat. This is interesting, but yet it concerns me that this memory has only tested on one type and make of motherboard.


I hope some further testing will take place to broaden the testing range to include different makes, models and even to include different overclocking chipsets such as the springdale. So, to boil it down, make sure you read some reviews and see just what motherboards people and hardware reviewing sites are testing and accomplishing the DDR550 mark and base your purchasing decisions accordingly.
