However, I suggest that we compare Corsair TWIN2X1024-8000UL against some other DDR2 SDRAM products for overclockers out there before making any conclusions. The graph below shows the results obtained not only for our today’s hero, but also for a few other overclocker solutions we have tested lately. All the memory modules included into this comparative graph worked at their nominal voltage. Besides, you can also see what frequencies can be achieved by the testing participants in case the voltage is increased to 2.3V, which was the maximum voltage our mainboard supported.
So, Corsair TWIN2X1024-8000UL looks pretty impressive against the competitors’ background, I should say. In most cases this memory proved capable of working at higher frequencies than the rivals without losing the system stability. The advantage of Corsair TWIN2X1024-8000UL is especially evident with the “average” 4-4-4-12 settings. In this case our today’s hero is more than 50MHz faster than the competitors. And even though there are situations when Corsair TWIN2X1024-8000UL doesn’t actually win the race, it is not that far behind the leader at all.
So, I can conclude with all certainty that Corsair TWIN2X1024-8000UL memory modules can ensure notably higher performance during overclocking of your LGA775 system in most cases. If you are looking for more details on how the latency settings and DDR2 frequency can actually affect the overall system performance, I suggest that you refer to our article called DDR2 SDRAM for Overclocking Fans: Getting Beyond 1GHz.
