For testing we will be using the same test system we have used to test previous memory. This is not the latest test system, but to compare the memory we use this system. The system has the following components.
ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe Motherboard
AMD Athlon 64 3500+ CPU (Orleans)
Gecube X1600 Pro (Provided by Geeks.com)
OCZ 2GB PC2-6400 ATi Crossfire Certified Dual Channel Memory (Provided By OCZ)

Before we can start testing you want to get the memory running at its stock settings. When you first turn your computer on you want go into the BIOS and set the timings. The timings for these modules are 4-4-4-15 (CAS-TRCD-TRP-TRAS). Depending on your motherboard you can either set your settings in the BIOS or with a program like ASUS's AI Booster, which we will be using. The default setting for our CPU is a 11x multiplier and a frequency of 200. This setting does not bring the memory up to the stock 800Mhz, so we have to drop the multiplier down to 10x. Once we do that our memory is running at its stock 800Mhz.
Testing will be comprised of Sandra 2007 Cache and Memory benchmark, memory bandwidth benchmark, Super Pi, and UMARK. We will be referencing 2 previous memory modules, the OCZ DDR2 PC2-6400 2GB Special Ops Urban Elite, and Crucial's 10th Anniversary 2GB PC2-5300. Here are the results from all of our tests.
Taking a look at the results we can see that the memory stands up very well. The OCZ Spec Ops memory does out perform these modules, but the tests are very close. I did not have any problems while testing and there were no abnormalities. This memory is very solid.
