Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
PNY D22GX93XLP-5 XLR8 Performance Edition RAM Review - PNY D22GX93XLP-5 XLR8 Performance Edition RAM Review
Thu, July 26 2007 | 10:06PM | PermaLink Feedback?

"PNY's D22GX93XLP-5 PC2-9385 RAM has a default clock speed of DDR2-1173 MHz while maintaining memory timings of 5-5-5-15. The memory operates at a modest voltage of 2.2V. The PNY D22GX93XLP-5 supports nVIDIA's EPP technology, if you're a novice at overclocking enable that feature in the BIOS and let the motherboard handle everything else.

The heatsink that PNY chooses to install onto the D22GX93XLP-5 looks a lot like the aluminum heat spreaders that Corsair uses on its DOMINATOR series.

There's been a lot of noise about aftermarket memory cooling from heatsink manufacturers, but take it from PCSTATS, you'll want to pass on pretty much every option. The problem is, modern DDR2 memory has the heat spreader bonded onto the BGA DRAM modules. Attempting to remove this will likely damage your RAM. We toasted a $350 stick of Crucial Ballistix memory back in 2004 and that heat spreader was only attached with double sided tape."
