To determine the stability of the overclocked Memory, we used
Super Pi 4M, Everest Home Edition and 3D Mark 01 SE. There is no doubt that
3D Mark 01 SE is an old benchmark. However, it still remains as one of the most
memory sensitive applications out there. Almost any signs of instability can
be easily picked out during the “Car” and “Lobby”
game tests in the benchmark.
The clock speeds must pass each of these benchmarks before
going for higher clocks. The WinBond UTT chipsets on this pair of Memory are
known to fully unleash their overclocking abilities with high Memory voltage,
and especially so after a burn-in session.
All the test results were taken after 10 hours of burn-in
at 260MHz with 3.5v Memory voltage. We used test #5 in memtest v1.55
for the 10 hour burn-in. All clock speeds were achieved with Memory settings
of CL2-2-2-5(CL-Trcd-Trp-Tras). During the whole process of
overclocking, I set Bank Interleave to enable
and Command Rate to 1T so that we do not compromise
performance for numbers.
The Burn-In session @ 265MHz CL2-2-2-5
@ 3.6v. There were 8 errors after 10 hours of burn-in.
