Super Talent T1000UX2G4 PC2-8000 Memory Review

Super Talent T1000UX2G4 PC2-8000 Memory Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: SuperTalent 's latest memory, a pair of 1024MB T1000UX2G4 modules, has some pretty impressive specifications. The 2GB PC2-8000 memory kit is rated to run up to 1000 MHz with CAS Latency timings of 4-5-4-12.

Overclocking the SuperTalent Memory

Overclocking Results:
4-5-4-12 5-5-5-15
Memory Speed:

1044 MHz

1160 MHz


If you're new to Overclocking and not sure what to do, check out these two excellent Guides for some pointers:
Overclocking the CPU and Memory
Overclocking the Videocard

To test the top speed of SuperTalent's T1000UX2G4 part, the memory was installed into the Asus P5N32-E SLI Plus motherboard (NF680i) with an Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 processor. Starting at DDR2-800 speeds with CAS latency settings at 4-5-4-12, the memory frequency was bumped up in 20 MHz increments.

Almost immediately, the SuperTalent T1000UX2G4 memory ran into stability problems... but as we quickly discovered this was because of a voltage setting we overlooked. At 860MHz we noticed that the memory was running with 1.8V, so that was increasing to 2.2V. Moving to the stock rated operating voltage (2.2v) solved the stability issues we had seen initially and allowed the T1000UX2G4 memory to continue overclocking.

After the SuperTalent T1000UX2G4 memory voltage was increased, the memory had no problems reaching 1000 MHz, or its default rated speed. To reach any higher the voltage had to be bumped up to 2.3V. In the end, the SuperTalent T1000UX2G4 hit a maximum speed at 1044 MHz when running on tight CAS Latency timings.

Loosening up the memory timings to 5-5-5-15 coaxed a little more from the SuperTalent's T1000UX2G4 memory. With these timings, PCSTATS was able to push it to 1044 MHz, and then just as quickly 1100MHz. With 2.3V and lax timings, the maximum speed we achieved with Supertalent's T1000UX2G4 modules was 1160 MHz. Fast.

Prelude to Benchmarks

Performance of all the memory at stock speeds is the same, that much shouldn't be a surprise. Overclocking memory alone in your PC system gives it a slight boost in the Office Productivity tests although you'd probably be hard pressed to notice.

Memory bandwidth and latency are surprisingly good for the SuperTalent T1000UX2G4 despite running at the same settings as the previous memory. When overclocked we see a small boost in overall bandwidth, as well as lower latencies.
