Maximum Overclocking Results and Conclusions

Max OC Chart and Conclusions

It's great to see how individual memory stacks up against the competition under stock configurations, but we're also going to show how it compares when overclocked. With performance in mind, we're going to compare the maximum overclocked results of the various DDR-2 memory modules PCSTATS has tested in the past which are listed below. Remember, just because memory is clocked fast doesn't mean it's the best thing for a computer. Timings are also important, and getting the right ratio of both is the real key to performance based overclocking!

The SyncMax Express PC2-6400 memory doesn't quite crack the DDR2-1000 mark, but comes very close with relatively tight timings! Moving onto 5-5-5-15 timings allows it to overclock as high as 1064MHz in our test set up.

Mainstream DDR-2 for the Masses?

There's a general rule of thumb that a PC can never have enough memory, and for the most part this is true. When a 1GB pair of PC2-6400 DDR-II memory can be had for as little as $170 CDN ($150US, £80GBP), life is pretty sweet.

The SyncMAX PC2-6400 Express modules that passed through the PCSTATS test labs today are entirely great for mainstream PC systems. At stock speeds the memory performed at the same pace as enthusiast class DDR2-800 DIMMs; benchmarking at par for workstation style tasks like email, word processing and spreadsheets.

The SyncMAX PC2-6400 Express handled the 3D applications well, but for the most part the games we tested this memory with do not require a huge pool of bandwidth. There is a one year warranty on these memory parts from the manufacturer and a tech support phone line if you encounter difficulties, which is unlikely.

This is mainstream DDR-II 800 memory, good for moderate overclocking at best, and better still as good value memory for mainstream consumer PC systems that just need an extra 1GB of DDRII.

The SyncMAX name might not be as recognizable as say Corsair, Mushkin or OCZ but when it comes to value and mainstream memory products, SyncMAX continues to prove itself.
