Crucial PC3-14400

2. Overclocking

Below you can see our test PC setup:

  • CPU: Intel Q9300 Retail
  • CPU Cooler: Intel Stock
  • Motherboard: Asus Striker II Extreme BIOS 0901
  • 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

The Asus motherboard we used in this test offers several ways to boost memory, either via Memory Level Up or via the manual method, which we followed. In all the tests, we kept CPU locked at 333MHz and after un-linking the FSB/DRAM we were able to boost only the memory and measure its overall performance with Everest Ultimate Edition. The table below includes all the speeds we managed to get and of course the corresponding timings:

The results are rather interesting and very good, we can say. The memory did an impressive CL7 at 1800MHz, 2.00V. This performance is higher than what we had with the already tested Crucial PC3-16000, since it easily reached 1000MHz with CL8. We didn't have to make any special adjustments with the Asus Striker II Extreme motherboard, - all settings were left to "Auto". Due to the FSB:DRAM divider, the next step would be to reach the 2074MHz, which however didn't work, despite the high voltage (2.00V) and of course raised cache latency. But still, reaching the 1000MHz with CL8 is very encouraging and most overclockers will definitely appreciate this performance.
