OCZ EL DDR PC-3200 Dual Channel Platinum Revision 2
In order to make sure our memory was stable, we used the Memtest86+ software.
At least 2 passes at extended mode should be error free before accepting the
corresponding FSB speed as stable. After running the benchmarking software
(AIDA32, Sisoft Sandra 2004 & PCMark04) under Windows XP SP1, we ran two instances
of Prime95 (Blend/Small FFTs) for at least six hours, to confirm the stability
of the system.
Each measurement given in the test results, is taken after running each test
three times, and then taking the average values. Note that the Sisoft Sandra
results (Integer value and a Float value) were averaged and given as a single
number for each test.
Our test motherboard is an ASUS P4C800-E Deluxe, a motherboard with the Intel
865 chipset and very well known for its overclocking capabilities. As for the
CPU, we used an Intel Northwood P4 at 2.4GHz. Some may wonder why we use an "old" processor
for the tests. As has been proven, the 2.4GHz P4 is a great overclocker,
which makes it ideal for these tests.
The DDR memory modules were installed in the 1st and 3rd banks respectively.
For optimum results, we didn't overclock the SVGA card, leaving it running
at stock speeds with official Catalyst v4.30 installed.
