Benchmarking Explained:


With the different configurations seen above, I will be testing the OCZ memory clock for clock against the equivalent Corsair TwinX Memory I have reviewed previously. Everything else is absolutely identical right down to the software and drivers. Also included is the maximum overclock that could be obtained with each memory kit to show the reader what kind of performance improvements you can get from each memory set.
