Benchmarked Timings


512 megs Corsair TwinX Series PC3200 Low Latency Memory : 2-5-3-2 (200Mhz FSB : DDR400 : 2.4Ghz)
1 GIG Corsair TwinX Series PC4400 : 3-8-4-4 (276Mhz FSB : DDR552 : 3.32Ghz)
1 GIG OCZ 1GB PC4400 DDR550 Performance Series: 3-8-4-4 (276Mhz FSB : DDR552 : 3.32Ghz)


Both configurations are run at locked 1:1 memory and CPU FSB divider.


Benchmarking Explained


The benchmarking is going to be kept very simple and to the point. What I will be illustrating through the testing is the performance difference comparing low latency timed standard PC3200 to high latency timed PC4400 memory from Corsair and OCZ. Will the system be able to tackle and make use of all the extra potenial bandwidth?


*Additional Point:* Some people seems to think that the scores you will see in the next graphs are "misleading" and this is in no way correct. The premise behind this review is to illustrate what 275Ghz set at a 1:1 divider will bring to the standard dual channel DDR400 user. This review is about unlocking the full potential bandwidth in your system with high speed memory and no divider changes which will help your system performace.*


Here we go.
