We have the feeling that some of the tested A-DATA PC 4000 modules would run even higher than 281 MHz. Above 13 x 280 MHz = 3640 MHz our aircooled P4 2600 became unstable and most probably the bottleneck for further advancements. But we would not be surprised to see this PC 4000 memory running at up to 300 MHz with “vapochilled” (review here) P4 2.4GHz or 2.6GHz MHz CPUs. Another point to consider is the voltage. Almost all 865/975 boards provide a maximum of only 2.8 or 2.85 DIMM voltage. With modifications to the circuitry it is in many cases possible to get 0.1 or 0.2 volt more and that might further help to push the maximum frequency headroom of this memory towards 300 MHz.
Given the price of around 65~70 USD in Asia for the 256 MB module and 140 USD for the 512 M module A-DATA PC 4000 offers an excellent cost vs performance ratio.
