OCZ PC4000 EL 512MB Dual Channel Kit - Closeup


Remember when the 875P chipset first came out and everyone was wondering what the next advance in memory would have to be to keep up with the faster front side bus? Some thought we would have to use different dividers to underclock the memory at a speed it could operate and that memory speeds would not get much faster until a different manufacturing process was used. Instead, memory manufacturers such as OCZ, Corsair, GeIL, Kingston, and Mushkin have released modules that are able to operate at 500MHz DDR but with somewhat relaxed timings. These "new" modules compliment the 875 and 865 chipsets extremely well giving an exceptional boost in performance.

Today we have the OCZ PC4000 EL Dual Channel kit on the test bed. Sure you have heard a lot about OCZ since they are some of the best overclocking modules available. Just about every forum you go to, there are many satisfied consumers who have had great luck with their memory. We have even got our PC3700 Gold Dual Channel kit to run 520MHz 100% stable at 2-3-3-7 timings at 3.3V. How will the PC4000 modules compare? Read on to find out more.

On a side note. The modules in our test labs are beta and may not accurately depict what the retail versions do.
