Before we go about overclocking, we put the Aeneon kit through a few quick benchmarks to see where it stands in terms of performance.
The reference RAM used are Kingston ValueRAM sticks that have Micron D9 ICs on them.
Here is the rest of the setup:
- Intel Core 2 Extreme X6800 2.93GHz
- ASUS P5K Premium
- ASUS EN8800 GTS 640MB
- Seagate 7200.9 80GB SATA
- Silverstone Zeus 650W
Aeneon’s 1066MHz kit seems to be a little slow here… It is only able to beat the Kingston sticks in the ScienceMark 2.0 tests. On the other hand, for some strange reason, it failed to keep pace with the Kingstons in 3DMark2001 SE.
