The memory prices are currently at low level but are said to soon pick up again. Enough reason for us to date on the memory market for interesting products to look for something more. So we had our last, the absolute luxury RAM, 4GB PC8500 kit from Mushkin considered, perhaps the ne plus ultra in terms of DDR2. But not everyone wants the same and has so much money in the pockets so full 4GB to look for. so a 2 GB kit and is made by G. Skill.By F2-8500CL5D-2GBHK G. Skill tried to the already review ed us about G. Skill F2-6400CL4D-2GBHK and the HK range upwards to tie expanded.
The modules will G. Skill very price aggressive offer high-quality RAM for overclockers. With the HZ series, under the G. Skill PC8500 already made a name as they were the first CL4 PC8500 modules on the market, both in performance and overclocking shone. With the new G. Skill F2-8500CL5D-2GBHK G. Skill kit can once again convince old and successful models such as the very certainly known F2-8000PHU2-2GBHZ or F2-6400PHU2-2GBHZ tie. Here everything is right as far as price, performance and design are well done.
With a maximum clock speed of DDR2-1238 provides the new module pair of values for which you had a few weeks ago still extremely deep into their pockets. After all, the module achieved by overclocking the same clock speeds as a PC9600 module, which is clocked at 600 MHz DDR2-1200 and therefore without increasing the voltage. So here is really quite open to OC reserves.
The F2-8500CL5D-2GBHK seems to be destined for high clock rates. The performance of the module is quite good, but unfortunately can not share, despite the high speeds at the tip of the iceberg when it emanates from the standard clock needs to back off against some other PC8500 modules yet. Perhaps this is also a result of the optimization speeds that you see here. There are so high clock rates, but not necessarily the best performance relative to a fixed clock rate.Unfortunately, the kit also loses some ground when it comes to achieving the best at lower timings. The magic mark of 800 MHz and 1066 were for CL3 CL4 unfortunately just missed. But this is not the end, as the higher clock here brings more performance as a rule anyway.
