    Bottom Line: If you want to tweak a bit extra out of your kit then its important to get good RAM. We evaluated two sets of RAM from Corsair and Transcend against gaming/system benchmarks, there was a difference, if you want to overclock which would be the best option for you, read on to find out in our official review............

    Overclocked Results

    I was only able to overclock both the Transcend DDR500 and Corsair TwinX1024-3200LLPRO to 222MHz. I even changed my FSB to 200MHz and tried to overclock a little more from there but my system would not even boot. Finally I just settled at 222MHz and concluded that it would give us a clue as to how much performance would be gained by overclocking. I had the option of OCing my FSB in 1MHz increments and thereby increasing my RAM Speed but doing so would bias the review somewhat, since the RAM module that could overclock better would have a higher CPU speed (due to the increase of FSB) than that of the RAM that is less capable of overclocking (which would have a slower CPU speed since the FSB would be lower). However, I will try to tinker with the FSB and RAM speed to see what is the maximum MHz rating I can get out of the RAM and update the review (but I will not benchmark these speeds, since their difference in FSB would bias would somewhat bias the review).

    3DMark03:

    It was quite disappointing to say that there was no overall increase in performance in 3DMark03 when overclocking the Corsair TwinX 22MHz more.

    Sandra Standard 2004:

    After overclocking, there was a noticeable bandwidth increase of the Corsair TwinX. There was an increase of 35MB/s on the Int. Test and an increase of 33MB/s on the Float test of Sandra 2004.

    PCMark02:

    Although there was no increase on the CPU portion of the PCMark02 test, there was a somewhat noticeable increase of score on the Memory portion. The Corsair TwinX scored 89 points higher when overclocked to 222MHz. Although there wasnít a significant increase in score, itís at least a small improvement.
