Testing Procedure:

All testing was done on a fresh install of Windows XP Professional build 2600 with Service Pack 2 and DirectX 9.0c. All benchmarks were completed on the desktop with no other software programs running. The 2:3 memory divider was used and the processor was left alone during system testing. All of the modules were run in dual channel for all of the testing and overclocking!

Memory Kits:

All of the memory kits used in the benchmarking were 2GB kits and were ran at their default timings.

  • Corsair XMS2 PC2-6400 Pro (5-5-5-12)
  • Corsair XMS2 PC2-6400 C3 (3-4-3-9)
  • Crucial Ballistix PC2-6400 (4-4-4-12)
