These modules did what they were supposed to and more. Rated at 1333MHz, I was able to squeeze 1530MHz out of them without resorting to insane voltages. That is a 98MHz increase over the rated speeds of 667MHz. Performance at this speed was amazing. The bandwidth that was available was huge, easily beating the competition in just about every benchmark. At stock speeds it fell short in only two benchmarks, but even so, it handily beating the DDR2 competition. At stock speeds and voltages the memory ran with the timings set to 5-7-5-15 1T. Yes, you heard that right, 1T. In fact, it ran 1T up to the limit of its performance, something wholly unexpected. When you couple that with the fact that this two gigabyte set delivers the goods and can run with any processor on the market 1:1 and above, it makes this kit a great choice when migrating to the next generation of hardware. With a lifetime warranty, high performance and tight timings, Mushkin, as always, gives you more than expected.
