MadShrimps looks at the CoolIT Eliminator and Freezeone CPU coolers. Low cost, TEC and good temperatures do not go together. Neoseeker takes a set of OCZ DDR3 PC3-14440 memory out for a spin. Overclockers Club also reviews a set of memory, it has the Mushkin HP3 10666 DDR3 memory for us to read about.
After seeing the performance of the modules at both DDR 800 speeds, as well as the rated DDR3 1333 speeds, I was anxious to see just how far of an overclock I could achieve with these modules. The maximum voltage these modules are rated for is 1.7v. During our testing, we chose to increase the voltage beyond that point to show what the modules can do with a little more juice. The maximum voltage used in our testing is 1.9v. The highest speed that I could achieve on the memory was 765 FSB. To do so, the voltage was lowered to 1.8 volts, as any higher did not allow any increase in memory speed or reduction of the timings. The timings that the HP3-10666 would run at with the maximum overclock are 8-8-7-15. With that being said, I will re-run our benchmark suite at that speed and use the DDR2 Mushkin modules as a comparison running at DDR2-1200 (600 FSB) speeds with the latencies set to 5-5-5-15. It will be interesting to see how the comparison of these modules will go.
