OCZ PC4000EL Gold Edition Memory Review

PC Stats has posted an OCZ PC4000EL Gold Edition Memory review
The memory market is pretty saturated right now with high speed memory modules from every corner, and in an attempt to differentiate themselves from their competitors we've noticed that OCZ have been tightening up their memory timings just a bit. After all if you're running PC2100 DDR and PC4000 DDR at stock speeds, it really doesn't make any difference to the computer.... but then if you overclock that is where speed, and memory timings really come into play. For an illustration of just what we're talking about, please read through PCstats look at Memory Latency VS Bandwidth. For the rest of you who know what tight memory timings can really bring to the table, read on! In this memory review, PCstats is testing out OCZ's Gold Edition PC4000EL DDR. Each of these PC4000EL modules are 512MB in size, and since they are destined for dual channel systems, OCZ sell the memory as a pair. The OCZ PC4000EL DDR is rated to run up to 250 MHz while maintaining timings of 2.5-4-4-7, at 2.8V. That's not exactly as tight as some other lower speed modules, but it is better than the 3-4-4-8 timings most other high speed DIMM's run under.
