Corsair 3500LL PRO

2. Test System - Configuration

Although the memory is the best performing memory for the A8N32 motherboard, we could not get our hands on this motherboard, so, we had to use our usual A8N-SLI Premium. Setting the DDR clock settings to AUTO should get the memory running at SPD timings.

The memory is clocked at 400MHz when you leave the DDR clock to AUTO. In order to get it to operate faster, you'll have to do some BIOS changes, but for now, we chose to test the Corsair 3500LL PRO memory using the automatic configurations.

The SPD timings at 400MHz frequency (2x200MHz) are 2-3-2-6. .

The CPU we used was an AMD Athlon64 3500+, running at ~2200MHz.

In this review, we will be comparing the Corsair 3500LL PRO modules with some memory modules we tested several weeks ago, the Mushkin XP4000 - Redline (2x1024MB) dual-rank modules (2GB). Below you can see the SPD Timings for the Mushkin memory, according to CPU-Z.
