Benchmarking Explained:


With the different configurations seen above, I will be testing the Corsair TwinX1024-3200LLPro memory clock for clock against the equivalent Corsair TwinX1024-3200XLPro and the PMI PC3200 Platinum Turbo Memory I have reviewed previously.


Everything else is absolutely identical right down to the software and drivers. I will not be testing this memory at the CPU's highest overclock seeing to do so, I would be using the memory divider and essentially underclocking the memory below it's rated speed.


What I will show you is just how much of an overclock you can obtain through pushing up the front side bus and keep the divider at it's 1:1 stock ratio. This brings about an overall performance boost to the whole computer and contributes to a noticeable reduction in OS and program load and execution timeframes.


Let's see how it performed....
