7 OCZ EL DDR PC3700 Gold Dual Channel Review

We chose the ABIT IC7-G to test OCZ’s
PC-3700 Gold memory because it is a site favorite
for overclocking and features one of the most comprehensive
and tweakable BIOS’ in existence. The maximum voltage
the board would allow for the memory was 2.8V, (which
will still not void your warranty as 2.9v is the
maximum voltage supported under OCZ’s lifetime warranty)

We’ll be testing to see how high the
memory can get at its most aggressive timings and
of course what memory frequency the PC-3700 Gold
can achieve.
