Performance


The performance of the kit was tested with six separate tests in order to give a well rounded idea of the real world performance buyers can expect. The tests were performed at a range of clock frequencies at each CL: 3, 4 and 5. To test the overclock potential of the kit at each CL, voltages from 1.8V all the way up to 2.4V were employed in order to indicate the require voltage a user can expect in order to achieve such frequencies.

The results are summarized in the following table and graphs.

While this kit overclocks quite linearly with regard to the supplied voltage, the graph makes apparent the small increase in clock frequency afforded by loosening the CL rating to 5. This makes running the kit at CL5 almost pointless as the small increase in MHz is hardly worth the more relaxed timings. I should finally note that, while these results are a good indication of expected performance, no two kits will perform identically and that these results are not guaranteed.
