Super Talent 2GB PC2-8000 RAM Kit Review

I started off by trying to find my maximum CPU FSB so I set the multiplier to 6 and worked my way up from 320MHz to 410MHz before the first crash. I couldn't get it any further than 408MHz stable, regardless of whether I dropped the multi to 5 or not. Keep in mind that this was with stock timings of 5-5-5-15. I didn't loosen timings until later, when I ran into the poof! monster. RAM frequency at this point was only 984MHz anyway and I knew there was more to come with stock timings alone.

Next, I traveled through the various multipliers searching for a max stable CPU speed for this RAM and ended up with 2.85GHz. Not bad, but I was expecting over 3.0GHz like I had gotten with my 3800+ single core CPU. Perhaps this was due to the CPU being a low power version, but I am not certain. It could always just be a less desirable stepping.
