Former staff writer    -   October 16, 2006


Installation
Installation was no big deal. Find what DIMM slots to use from your Mainboard's manual, then just snap and click the RAM right in.

Specifications
Frequency: 667MHz
Latency: 4-4-4-10
Parity: Unbuffered Voltage: 1.9V
Pins: 240
Density > > > Module: 128Mx64
Chip: 64Mx8

Testing
Testing Setup:

  • Intel Pentium D 820 Processor
  • ECS C19-A SLI nForce4 SLI XE
  • Mushkin HP2 5300 (2x1GB) DDR2 RAM
  • CoolerMaster Igreen Power 500W PSU
  • PowerColor X800 GTO PCI-E GPU
  • Maxtor 80gb Ultra-ATA HD
  • Memorex 16x DVD/RW +/- R
  • Windows XP Pro SP2
Benchmarks and Apps:

  • Cpu-z
  • Task Manager
  • PcMark05
  • SiSandra
  • CacheMem
  • Far Cry
The results below are at stock speeds without any overclock. Stock speeds for this RAM are DDR2 667 with the timings of 4-4-4-10.

Our first application is CPU-z, which gathers information on some of the main devices of your system. We will be using this to show the frequency and timings of the Mushkin RAM.


Task Manager
Task Manager will be used to show the performance of the RAM: Physical memory, Kernel memory, Page file usage etc.

 

Si Sandra, Pcmark05 and Cachemem
Sandra benchmarks used were Cache and Memory, Memory Bandwidth and Memory Latency. Let's see how our system faired.

Cache and Memory ----- combined index of 15131 mb/s and Speed Factor of 37.2
Memory Bandwidth ------Bandwidth Int SSE2 of 4972 mb/s and Bandwidth Float SSE2 of 4980 mb/s
Memory Latency ------ Random Access of 121ns and Speed Factor of 82.0


Pcmark05 benchmark was used to calculate the amount of points accrued using the Mushkin RAM in the system. Total Points were 4407

Cachemem was used to average the MB/s of the RAM itself according to its read and write speeds.


Far Cry: Hardware OC (Ubisoft Volcano)
Settings:


  • Maximum quality option, Direct3D renderer
  • Level: Volcano, demo: Volcano.tmd
  • Pixel shader: model 2.0b
  • Antialising: 4
  • Anisotrophic filtering: 8
  • HDR: disabled
  • Geometry Instancing: disabled
  • Normal-maps compression: disabled


The video benchmark is to see if there will be any changes in Frames per Second between the normal Speed of the RAM @ 667 and our maximum overclock.
