Value and Conclusion

  • You can find two 512MB modules for about $170 online. Other manufacturers ask $250 for similar performing memory.
  • Awesome overclocking
  • Bargain price
  • Overclocks well, without any extra voltage
  • Heat spreader does not make full contact with whole memory surface
  • Timings could be a bit tighter
When I first held this memory in my hands I was surprised of its little weight. This is because the heatspreaders are not made from copper, but from a lighter metal. Unconsciously I thought to myself "if it's not heavy, it can't be good"... Seeing how the heatspreaders were attached to the 4400DSU2-1GBFC, added to the initial impression.
But once I actually started using this memory all these worries were gone. The memory performs great and brings good overclocking potential, even at the standard DDR voltage of 2.6V.

G.SKILL guarantees that the memory runs at 275 MHz, we got 300 Mhz out of it - really nice. Other manufacturers would make a new 300 MHz product out of that and charge extra for it.

Last but not least the price makes this memory even more attractive, especially since it's below the magical $200 mark.
