Rated to run at 450/900Mhz DDR2 PC2-7200 speed with 2.0v. Note the evaluation

Although SPD settings and CPU-Z Detection methods aren’t very accurate, it

is rated to run CL 3-3-3-9 at 200Mhz, CL 4-4-4-12 at 266Mhz and CL 5-5-5-15
at 333Mhz. Definitely not very impressive if we choose to just judge it from
