DDR400 dual channel memory shootout , Sticks from Crucial, Corsair, Geil, OCZ, and Mushkin were tested.
With the advent of the nForce 2 boards, many manufacturers have jumped on the ball and offered two verified sticks of memory that are ensured to work in tangent on dual channeled board. The most typical configuration is two 256 meg PC3200 sticks which gives a comfortable 512 megs of memory running at 400 MHz. But which is the best for you?

Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 320GB Serial-ATA RAID-0 review
In another ‘World First’, we take a pair of matched Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 160GB SATA drives and RAID-0 Stripe the drives on an A7N8X-Deluxe motherboard. Essentially, we took the fastest non-SCSI hard-disk we’ve ever tested in our Labs, and RAID’ed them, to create one monster drive with benchmark specs WAY OFF our charts. Scream after me - 105MB/sec. Here’s a snip:

“In a follow-up to our hugely popular Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 SATA drive review, we decided to procure a second and identical drive, and with help from the excellent A7N8X-Deluxe nForce2 motherboard, demonstrate the AWESOME power of using two of these DiamondMax Plus 9 160GB drives in a RAID-0 Serial-ATA Stripeset - totalling a whopping 320GB of storage space. To sum up this review in a few short words - Envy This!”
