    Infrared - very nice job on the speed and timing comparison charts... always interesting to see how dividers affect throughput. Looks like some kick-ass memory for the price, too.

    Thanks Sasqui :)

    It demonstrates why it's so important to stick to 1:1 i think. I was amazed when i could break 10k in everest read with only 1.8v though, i don't think i've ever seen that before. :twitch:

    Hmm, looks good. I need some new ram, this might just be what I'm looking for.

    Wow - I didn't notice the 1.8v at 425 Mhz!!! Holy Shit.

    y does the 425mhz beat the 512mhz even when then 512mhz has tighter timings

    At the 512 Mhz test, the 4:5 divider between the memory speed and the front side bus ("asynchronous") causes some serious latency issues, whereas the 1:1 ("synchronous") divider does not. Idea divider is 1:1, next is 1:2 from what I've read.

    how does the fastest setting of:

    8 x 425 1:1 425 MHz 4-4-4-12 1.8V 10131 MB/s

    need the least amount of voltage, theres others on there with 2.4v even with slower speeds like this setting he tried with mem is using 2.4v, WHY ?:

    8 x 266 1:1 266 MHz 3-2-2-4 2.4V 6620 MB/s

    I think everything else put aside, we can safely say THIS RAM FUCKING OWNS.

    That's all that matters :)
