In order to test this set of RAM, I’m going to be running a gauntlet of memory-intensive benchmarks to gauge the set’s performance. I’ll be running the stock timings of 5-5-5-18 at 400MHz (DDR2-800) and the stock speed DDR2-1150 at 571MHz (it isn’t actually quite 575MHz as advertised), for now. This RAM is going to be compared against some other high performance sets made by Mushkin and Crucial. I’m down-clocking the sets because I want to see how tight the timings will get at DDR2-800. The OCZ Reapers were set to 3-3-3-8 (for the DDR2-800 tests) with stock volts. Let’s get this set of RAM tested!

CPU-Z: This program gives very accurate readings for memory so we'll take a look at the stock frequency of the RAM. It clocks in at 571MHz, not quite the advertised 575MHz like I mentioned before.
Windows Task Manager: Here is where you can see how much RAM is being recognized by Windows and how much of the RAM is being used.
