Memory bandwidth numbers are in line with what we expect from DDR2 memory on an Intel platform. It will be interesting to see how AMD Athlon64 systems respond to DDR2 when Socket AM2 is released at the end of May.

If you haven't figured it out, memory that is clocked at the same speed, using the same timings, performs exactly the same. ;-) When overclocked the Buffalo Technology FireStix FSX1000D2C-K2G scores higher than the rest, but then again the processor is overclocked pretty heavily too.

3DMark05 numbers are very good, and it's nice to see the performance boost due to overclocking the system. Fast memory definitely helps out in this benchmark.
