Pros: Here are some examples of what some people have been able to do with this RAM:
- 270x11=2970MHz DDR540 @ 2-2-2-5-1T - A64 San Diego - Gskill PC3200GH
- 270x14=3782MHz DDR540 @ 2-2-2-5-1T - A64 FX San Diego - Gskill PC3200GH
- 300x9=2700MHz DDR540 @ 2-2-2-5-1T w/ 10/9 divider - A64 Venice - Gskill PC3200GH
- 268x14=3753MHz DDR538 @ 2-2-25-1T - A64 FX San Diego - Gskill PC3200GH
- 265x9=2385MHz DDR530 @ 2-2-2-3-1T - A64 Venice - Gskill PC3200GH
- 262x9=2358MHz DDR524 @ 2-2-2-5-1T - A64 Venice - Gskill PC3200GH
- 260x10=2600MHz DDR520 @ 2-2-2-5-1T - A64 Winchester - Gskill PC3200GH
Definitely some good stuff with some great Winbond BH-5 chips.
Cons: Needs lots of volts. Like around 3.3v AT LEAST.
Overall Review: Currently in the process of breaking these sticks in. When I'm done, I'll no doubt be able to achieve results similar to those listed above.
Pros: First off no one really knows what type of modules are on these memory . Mainly b/c that is information companies do not like to give out. They are UTT modules though, not sure if they are BH-5 or CH-5. If you take off the heatspreaders and look at the modules very closely you will notice the signature two dotes on the surface of the IC, indicating that these were most definitely made from a Winbond die. Also looking at the serial # you see 8H-5 in the line up. Another indication that these modules are very likely made from the Winbond BH5 die.
Cons: If you raise the voltage above you MUST have active cooling on the memory. they get quite hot above 3.0v
Overall Review: Great for overclocking. Run well really only on voltage higher than 3.0v
Timeings I've done:
2-2-2-0 @ 250mhz
DFI LP UT Ultra-D
AMD 3700+ SD @ 3.0ghz
(Thats all that really matters)
Pros: Runs super fast, and is very stable if the conditions are right (cons)
I bought 2GB of these sticks in replacement of my Kingston HyperX that were faulty, and the difference is superb.
Runs at a 1:1 ratio, 2-2-2-5-T1 rating without any flaws
Cons: Well, this one is my fault, but in my Bios I didn't set the voltage, it was just on 'auto' which wasn't high enough I guess. So my system would reboot every now and then. Can't even overclock my computer without this guy running past 2.9. But it's an intel processor, so the clock speed isnt making too much of a difference.
Technical support only seams to be available in tawain..I havent checked their website though
Overall Review: I'd recommend this for anyone who still believes that DDR is better for gaming than DDR2. Or just a gamer inparticular, this gave me an extra 15FPS boost in each of my higher end games. I'm running on an x800XL and i'm unleashing its power.
Comments: Great Winbond BH5 based RAM. It really does require AT LEAST 2.7v, preferably 2.8v. If your mobo does not support these voltages, then I would not buy this RAM. Also, this RAM overclocks well, but only at 3.2v and above. Will not overclock more than 10Mhz even at 3.0v. Behaves very similar to OCZ Gold VX.
Comments: Awesome memory! At only 2.8 vDimm, I was able to run CL 1.5-2-2-5 all the way upto 215MHz Prime95 Stable. I'm now running 230 MHz 2-2-2-5 @ 2.9v. I haven't pushed it further yet, because my PSU and stock HS/F have me a little on edge. Don't hesitate to buy, unless you're looking at TCCD instead. Newegg got it to me quick as well. :)
Pros: extreme speed just out of the box, had timings listed on the stats below sick price, totaly worth it.
got 2 of these with my abit mobo its insane
ABIT AN8 SLI Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX
AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ Manchester 2000MHz HT 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket 939 Dual Core
G.SKILL 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Unbuffered DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel Kit----Two sets
Geforce 7900GT 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16---two of them SLI!!
Cons: none absolutely none
Overall Review: freakin sweeeet, get it or you'll regret it
Pros: Very good memory. I bought this for Abit KN8-SLI works well.
2-2-2-5 1T at 2.9V up to DDR420
2-2-2-5 2T at 2.9V up to DDR434
Both are on DDR333 setting
Can run DDR460 at 2.9V on DDR400 setting. But cannot clock my cpu higher, not enough volts for ram I guess on the motherboard.
For me, I can only push my mobo to 3.2V tops.
Cons: Needs extreme power for overclock speeds. 3.4 at least per gskill tech support.
Overall Review: IF you have a Lanparty, Abit AN8 Series or a motherbord that does more than 3.2V dram volts, this is the ram for you! If not, get some TCCD instead.
Pros: memtestx86+ for 8 hours at stock sppeeds 2-2-2-5 1t 2.8v but bios reads it as 2.73-2.75v no errors package recieved a day early by ups: package was good
works as advertised on my rig it was to replace some mushkin performance black lvl II pc 3500 bh-5 chips
amd 3400+ clawhammer, dfi lanparty ut 250gb nforce 3,
ocz powerstream 520watt, pny 6600gt
Cons: nothing i can tell
