All testing was done on a fresh install of Windows XP Professional build 2600 with SP1a. The tests were done on the desktop with no other software programs running. We ran the Athlon 2700+ at the FSB needed to give us the correct memory timings. During this review, the room temperature was 26 degrees Celsius, while the case temperature was 31 degrees Celsius.
Sandra is designed to test the theoretical power of a complete system and individual components. The numbers taken though are purely theoretical and may not represent real world performance. Higher numbers represent better performance.
Results: Both these "value" modules retail for around $50 so were expecting some pretty close results and that is what we got! Kingmax takes a small lead on the majority of the testing we did, but the results were pretty close. Does performance matter that much on value memory? Well of course it does, just to a lesser degree.
Now that I have seen the results, we will look at overclocking and sum up my overall impression of our OCZ premier module!
