First Impression:

First off I would like to thank Corsair Micro, Memory Man, Samsung, and Enhanced Memory Systems for their generosity in donating the RAM for this comparison. Without the help of these companies, this comparison would not of been possible. I'm so very sorry that this has taken me way longer than expected. I have included links to all the vendors, and most of them you can buy direct!

The test system composed of the following:

Test System

Motherboard Soyo SY-6VCA - Courtesy of SoyoUSA
CPU PIII-550 FC-PGA (Runs stable at over 160FSB) - Courtesy of PCNut

Video Card PCI Rivia 128 4MB (It's old but it works darn good)
Hard Drive Western Digital Expert 20.5GB ATA/66

 

Let me give you the spec's & pictures of each of the DIMM's, then I will get more into the tests, benchmarks, and final conclusion.

Corsair sent me two memory modules. The top one is their NEW CAS2 module, and the one on the bottom is their CAS3 module. The top DIMM is double sided vs. the one on the bottom which is a single sided. As you will see in the following pages, there is a mixed bag of single vs. double sided DIMM's. I was wanting to see if this would affect performance / stability. Corsair has utilized Micron Technology chips on these two particular DIMM's, and the design / craftsmanship on these are top notch.
