    Default The “Ace” frequency of DDRII CL4 memory-CORSAIR TWIN2X2048-8888C4DF limited test

    The former memory PC8888 product from CORSAIR is also DDRII 1111 CL4
    level product, the first one to breakthrough 1066 frequency limited.

    Top speed DDRII 1111 CL4 comes with top price, The 2GB pair kit is 610USD!
    This kind of spec. and price, could be the best memory chip set in the market.
    This module should run on better motherboard and better heat reduce
    platform to reach the top speed.

    Let’s take a look on CORSAIR Dominator TWIN2X2048-8888C4DF packing.
    They use white bigger box with stickers, different with other plastic packing.


    Open the white box, the packing use pink buffer stuff to have better
    protection.
    The small box on right side is CORSAIR’s new product.


    The CORSAIR AIRFLOW Memory Fan Module, build with 3 small fan, metal
    structure with quality outlook, single retail price is about 25USD.

    CORSAIR new version big heatsink, looks like the brush we’ve used generally. Higher heatsink design and high density sink layout, could have better heat
    reduce effect over other memory modules.


    Now let’s take a look on real test.
    Fist we use AMD platform, 2 of the best DDRII overclocker motherboards, ASUS and DFI’s 590SLI chipset MB
    First test is DFI LANPARTY UT NF590 SLI-M2R/G


    Test platform setup.
    CPU:AMD AM2 Opteron1218
    MB: DFI LANPARTY UT NF590 SLI-M2R/G
    DRAM:CORSAIR Dominator TWIN2X2048-8888C4DF
    VGA:MSI NX7900GT-VT2D256EZ
    HD:Seagate 7200.5 120GB
    POWER:Corsair HX620W Modular Power Supply
    Cooler:Tower112 (No lock on.)


    DDRII 800 CL3 3-3-9 1T 1.98V stable.

    DDRII 1214 CL4 4-4-9 2T 2.39V
    CPU already reach the limited with no lock on CPU cooler.


    Intel platform test to be continued:)

    Another platform test – Intel side.
    ASUS 965 series motherboards should be the better boards on both FSB and
    memory extreme overclock design, the ASUS P5B Deluxe P965 chipset based
    ultimate test.


    Test platform setup.
    CPU:INTEL Core 2 Extreme X6800
    MB: ASUS P5B Deluxe
    DRAM:CORSAIR Dominator TWIN2X2048-8888C4DF
    VGA:ELSA GLADIAC 790GS 256B3 2DT
    HD:Seagate 7200.7 80GB
    POWER:Corsair HX620W Modular Power Supply
    Cooler:TT Sonic Tower


    DDRII 800 CL3 3-3-9
    Super PI 1M and Sandra / EVEREST memory bandwidth test.


    2.1V dual SP2004 test stable.

    DDRII 1137 CL4 4-4-9 2.25V dual SP2004 test stable.


    The highest DRAM voltage is 2.45V without MOD rework.
    DDRII 1170 CL4 4-4-9 2.45V dual Super PI 32M stable.


    DDRII 1200 CL4 4-4-9 2.45V
    Super PI 1M and Sandra / EVEREST memory bandwidth test.


    Change FSB divide setup
    DDRII 1200 CL4 4-3-9 2.45V
    Super PI 1M test finished.

    This ASUS P5B Deluxe did not MOD the circuit, can reach DDRII 1200 with
    2.45V on basic test.
    If MOD this board with 2.6V, it could have the chance to work stable with
    DDRII 1200.
    CORSAIR Dominator TWIN2X2048-8888C4DF is the top segment product,
    Also comes with higher price, the better AM2 590LSI/Intel 965 series boards
    can match the overclock are also expensive.
    After 2 top performance chipset motherboard on different platform, the
    comprehensive dispatch in test result, as long as good DRAM like this and
    good overclock motherboards combine, will all have the chance to reach
    DDRII 1111 to 1200 level.
    But in reality, it could have 3~8% difference due to different condition, but
    CORSAIR guarantee DDRII 1111 CL4 level stable.
    Beside the DDRII 1200, the exciting part is the new CORSAIR AIRFLOW
    memory fan module,
    Use 3 fan design, with strong air flow and low noise.
    In fact I wanted to find a memory fan module with figh performance and high
    quality.
    Can help overclock memory to reach higher speed and more stable work for
    long term.
    Also can help memory modules to reduce the heat on normally setup. This is
    really a awesome product for memory overclock!
    About other chipset performance on Intel platform,
    like NVIDIA new 680i and Intel 975X motherboards,
    Will coming soon here or comes with other new product test.
    Next test should be my third 965 motherboard test later, the ASUS P5B
    Deluxe easy test.


    Or the high-end NVIDIA 680i motherboard.


    Also could be the entry level Dual-Core challenge : Intel E6200 vs AM2 4200+
    X2.
    Coming Soon!!
