Many products boast about having blazing fast performance, but only through proper testing will we see if this set holds up. I am going to put it to the test against the OCZ Reaper HPC Edition PC2-9200, the Mushkin XP2-9200 and the Crucial Ballistix Tracer PC2-8500 memory sets. The tests will be run at JEDEC speeds of 400MHz (DDR2-800) and then bumped up to their native speeds of 600MHz (DDR2-1200).
