Wintec Industries PC5400 DDR 2 memory



For testing purposes I rounded up every 1GB kit of PC5400 DDR2 memory I had, to include kits from Kingston, Corsair, and Centron. the quality and price various widely with these kits so we should get a pretty wide variety of performance.

Memory modules

For testing the following system was used.

  • ASUS P5WD2 Premium motherboard
  • Intel Pentium D 820 dual core processor
  • Sapphire ATI X850 XT PE video card
  • Maxtor DiamondMax 10 SATA HDD
  • OCZ Powerstream 520W PSU
  • Antec TX640B case

Memory Timings:

Corsair 3-2-2-8 *

Kingston 4-4-4-12

Centon 4-4-4-12

Wintech 4-4-4-10

* I chose to run the Corsair 5400UL at its best rated timings to show a better spread of performance.

All test were done on a fresh install of Windows XP w/ service pack 2, and the latest drivers for each component. Though the CPU was cooled by ECT’s Mach II phase change cooler, all components were run at their rated speeds.
