OCZ DDR Booster
OCZ has recently introduced their DDR Booster, a device that allows for manual voltage adjustment to your motherboards VDIMM, all the way up to 3.9V. Today we take a look at this new product from OCZ and we try to break the 250MHz FSB barrier while running at 2-2-2-5 timings using the DDR Booster.
OCZ Technology is a name that has over the years become synonymous with the overclocking community. From powering some of the most overclocked systems in the world to running on your mom’s Duron machine, the company has certainly made a name for itself in the memory industry. The company is one that caters heavily to the enthusiast community, and have been listening to the concerns of overclockers all around the world.
Through their research, OCZ has learned that many enthusiasts have been having their overclocks hampered by low VDIMM voltages.
Most motherboards have a max VDIMM of 2.9V to 3.3V, requiring the heaviest of overclockers to set up voltage mods on their motherboards to get more voltage to their memory. With more memory voltage, the higher you can clock your memory, and the better it performs.
To allow enthusiasts to easily overclock their memory, OCZ has recently introduced their DDR Booster, a device that simply allows you crank up the voltage your memory recieves, giving you a better overall overclock. Today we’ll be taking a closer look at OCZ’s DDR Booster, using a pair of famed (but discontinued) BH5 memory to try to achieve 250FSB on a 1:1 FSB to DRAM ratio.
