Most people have not even heard of Super Talent, but they are not new to the memory market. They are however new to the enthusiast side of things. It looks like they know what they are doing, because these modules are FAST. Let’s take a deep look and see just how impressive they are.
MemTest is not really a benchmark, but rather a memory error checker. I use it to grab the bandwidth value though, because as you overclock it, it will go higher. It gives you a quick and general idea of whether your overclock did any good or not.
SuperPi 1.5 Mod
Even though mathematical calculations like this are extremely CPU intensive, they are also ram intensive. The faster your ram, the faster the overall calculations will be also. How SuperPi works is that you can specify how many digits you want to calculate past the decimal point. If you choose 1 Million, it will begin with the 3. and continue with 14359 all the way until it hits the 1 Millionth digit mark.
The reason SuperPi 1.5 Mod is better than the original SuperPi is because it shows you the results past the decimal point, whereas the original will give you a flat out second count (29 vs 29.153 for example).
PC Mark 05
Go ahead and whine about me using Futuremark products.. do it! Despite not being entirely accurate to some people, they are still a good way to scale your overclocks. PC Mark does a great job of performing 16 different memory specific benchmarks and spitting out an overall score. As you can see, the memory results scaled well with upping the FSB.
