In this review we're taking a closer look at a pair of RAM modules from Crucial. Last time we reviewed RAM modules from Crucial, we had a value set on the bench consisting of 2 x 1 GB modules. This time we're dealing with something completely different, we're having a look at 2 x 2 GB PC6400 modules in Crucials Tracer series.
The EP3001A modules have a speed of DDR3-1333 MHz with CL9 timings, and a tRAS-value of 24. The CRT-timing can be adjusted to 1T, which gives you extra performance. Exceleram have chosen to spare the cooling units, to minimize the price. The overclocking potential is big, and by loosening the timings, it is possible to hit speeds over DDR3-2000 MHz. We compare the modules in more benchmark tests against kits from both Exceleram and Kingston.
Geil was founded in 1993 and has since 1997 been known to produce high quality memory modules and kits, often focusing on the enthusiast market. Last time we looked at memory modules from Geil were back in August 2008. The memory kit we are looking at now is a high performance triple channel kit, designed for the Intel X58 platform.
