PC2-8500 Roundup

3. Test Setup

In order to test all 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
  • Orthos SP2004 Edition

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

For comparison, we provide the results from the Crucial PC2-8500 memory kit that was tested with the same testbed, at however different timings, since the memory could handle them:
