Mushkin XP2-8500 Memory Review

ccokeman    -   March 12, 2007


Overclocking:

Up until this point, I have not had the pleasure to work with a set of memory that has the speed capabilities I am looking for without having to lean on it until it cries for mercy. These modules made me take a second look at my choice of motherboards. Unfortunately, my current motherboard will not allow me past a memory speed of 1070MHz. I ran into the same wall on both sets of memory that I am comparing, so I used a 2:3 divider to reach the speed of 1070MHz with both sets of modules.

With the inability to push speeds any higher with the current testing setup, I cannot speak as to how well these modules overclock. In the future, I will have a motherboard capable of pushing these modules. The one thing I can show is the performance increase from these modules running better than the rated latencies at the rated speed of 1065MHz.
