This is going to be a battle of the 1000 MHz modules! I like doing tests that are more of an apples-to-apples test, rather than putting something like 1000 MHz up against 1067 MHz modules. Both sets are rated to be run at 2.2v on vdimm, with the OCZ having a slight edge here as it will allow going to 2.25 without voiding your warranty.
Further on in the review, I will be voiding the warranty on both sets though as I push the volts higher than recommended to see how fast I can get these modules to run. I mean, this is an overclocking website, is it not? So, let’s move on.
So, first up is cpu-z which reads information from your system and displays it on your screen. It has several tabs to display things such as information on your motherboard, what speed your processor is running at and the front side bus speed. On another tab is the SPD information that is programmed into the chip to tell it what settings to run at during your bootup (unless you were to manually set them in the bios). Then we have the main tab we are interested in today, the memory tab. This is going to tell us what speed the memory modules are actually running at.
Now we have Task Manager to show that it is indeed 2 GB of memory, Kernel memory, and Page file usage.
