Overclocking these of memory modules was easy, but unfortunately, not with the Abit motherboard we used for the previous performance tests. We had to switch to the ASUS A8N-SLI Premium motherboard, that uses the nForce4-SLI chipset. However, we did not use the motherboard in SLI mode, but instead the same hardware configuration as before, i.e. same VGA card, same CPU, same everything.
With the ASUS motherboard, Corsair managed to go as high as 312MHz, which is excellent. Although CAS Latency was reduced, 2.5-4-4-8 timings are very good, when running overclocked. The heat spreader proved itself very capable, keeping the temperature considerably low. The memory modules were warm to touch, but not hot enough so that you couldn't keep your finger on for a long time.
We re-ran some tests with the memory overclocked to see if there was any performance boost.
As you can see, the already good performer became even better. Especially with the Half Life 2 Video Stress, the fps boost was almost 15fps. Excellent performance...
