Overclocking

 


(Translator's note: Overclocking: RAM-speed (MHz))

 

As seen in the graph above, the EP3001A don't scale better, when they are supplied with additional voltage. We tried with 1.50 V to 1.70 V, and didn't experience better overclocking-potential from it.

 

It's impressing that a set of DDR3-1333 modules can be overclocked to DDR3-1900 MHz at CL9 timings. If we loosened the timings a little to CL10, the modules didn't have a problem running DDR3-2060 MHz.

 

The results are only guiding as there can be differences between the modules, even though they are from the same company, and have the same model numbers. Other components in the rig also play a big role, as the weakest link in the chain can give errors. 

 

 

 

 

Conclusion


The EP3001A modules have been a positive experience testing, as they are stable, easy to overclock, and physically small. They are targeted to the mainstream of people, and Exceleram have spared away the heatsinks, fancy packaging and other goodies away to keep the price as low as 19 euro per 2 GB module. 

 

The modules we have tested, are only sold one by one, and not in dual- or triple-channel kits. Also, if you buy the EP3002A or EP3003A kit, you get modules that are identical with EP3001A, except that Exceleram have equipped these with their Rippler heatsink. The kits are either 2 x 2 GB or 3 x 2 GB modules, and can be seen on the official homepage. 

 

Why Exceleram have chosen to send us three EP3001A modules with a capacity of 2 GB each, must be because they want the modules tested on Intel's X58-platform. We used a Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R motherboard, and experienced some good results in various tests and when overclocking. It is positive to see that the modules only require 1.50 V for DDR3-1333 MHz. Unfortunately are the timings a bit loose at factory settings. 

 

We got to hit DDR3-1910 MHz with CL9 timings, which is very impressive!

If we loosened the timings a bit to CL10, we hit 2060 MHz. The results are only guiding, as the potential depends on the different components, and the users know-how.

 

The EP3001A modules are not yet being sold in Denmark, so we cannot inform about any Danish price. At more German internet stores they are found at around 19 euro, which is around 141 Danish Kroner. A triple-channel kit is also just around 423 Danish Kroner.

 

Compared to that, Kingston's HyperX 1333 MHz 6 GB triple-channel kit costs 619 Danish Kroner at Komplett, so there are money to spare.

 

Because of the experience with these modules, the price and the overclocking-potential, Exceleram's EP3001A modules are awarded a "Great Product" award.

If TWEAK had a "Value" award, they would have been awarded that, as it maybe fits a little better.

 

Thanks to Exceleram for letting us test their modules!
