Wasn’t bad but didn’t see an improvement over a set of 2x1 G. Skills, giving up to much RAM speed. 3.0 volts on the DDR, MB A8N32-SLI and a 148 Opty water cooled.
The RAM boost isn't really an attempt at extra performance. Its the ever growing need for more RAM, and trying to bring a system / platform that otherwise would die, into the modern computing era. When I went from 2GB to 8GB, I didn't even bother OCing the RAM, just the CPU and video card to keep my aging system alive and usable. In fact, my RAM is at 200mhz, the CPU at 3ghz exact.
Glad to be a s939 8GB club member, using my system as a HTPC and emulation machine.
