Now, we know that this eDevices memory is using Samsung chipsets. And we know
that Samsung chipsets are well-known for their overclocking potential with loose
timings. Without further ado, let’s go for some overclocking and benchmarking
tests. Throughout the process of overclocking, I used Superpi 4M, Sisoft Sandra
Lite 2005 SR3 and 3D Mark 05 Pro version 1.2.0 for testing the stability of
the memory. All clock speeds must pass all three benchmarks before proceeding
further. All clock speeds reported were achieved at Command Rate 1T and with
Bank Interleaving enabled to ensure no compromise of performance during overclocking.
|CPU||AMD Athlon 64 Venice 3000+|
|Motherboard||DFI NF4 SLI-DR Expert (Bios 2/11/05)|
|Memory||eDevices 2 x 512MB|
|OCZ Platinum Rev 2 v1.0 TCCD (2 x 512MB)|
|Video Card||XFX 7800GTX 256MB|
|Power Supply||OCZ Powerstream|
Beyond 220MHz, I could not run SuperPi 4 million successfully
at CL2.5-3-3-5 regardless of whatever voltage I fed the memory. The
highest I could go was 220MHz. From 221MHz onwards, I had to lower the
RAS to CAS Delay (TRCD) to 4 and
this allowed me to push further till 239MHz.
