Mushkin XP2-6400 2GB

2. Tests

In order to test the memory modules, we used the following setup:

  • CPU: Intel XE6600 @ 2.4GHz
  • Motherboard: eVGA 680i LT
  • PSU: OCZ GameXStream GXS600 SLI-Ready
  • VGA: MSI 7600GT Silent (stock memory/core timings)
  • HDD: WD 800JB
  • OS: Windows XP SP2 with all the latest updates installed

While for benchmarking we used:

  • Memtest86+ v1.70
  • Sisoft Sandra 2007 SP1
  • RightMark Memory Analyzer v3.70
  • ScienceMark 2.0 Memory Benchmark
  • Pov-Ray v3.70 Beta15
  • SuperPI XS Mod v1.50

The eVGA 680i LT motherboard offers many possibilities for overclock both memory and CPU, either synced or not. For most of our tests, we set memory and CPU un-synced and tried to find the best possible memory timings. Each benchmark test had to pass a 30 min burn-in test with Memtest86+ v1.70 (DOS), without producing any errors. Furthermore, we tried Pov-Ray benchmark and Orthos Stability test under Windows to ensure that our system was rock solid. All benchmarks were run twice and the displayed results are the average of both.

The SPD as reported by CPU-Z:

Lastly, here are the results for the combination of memory timings, FSB frequencies and voltage. The product not only performs according to the specs, but with even tighter timings than 4-3-3-10 and of course higher voltages (2.30). The product is rated at 400MHz, but managed to produce an additional 162MHz. Superb performance!

At DDR2 1124MHz, our CPU, FSB and RAM were synced (1:1) and we overclocked the CPU up to 2.529GHz

Below are the memory timings as reported by CPU-Z
