OCZ Technology offers gamers some serious memory bandwidth with their 2GB PC2-8800 Gold Edition memory kit as it runs at 1.1GHz. Legit Reviews gets a chance to try out this DDR2-1100 (1100MHz) kit with 5-6-6-15 timings to see how they operate on one of our test benches. The results were nothing less than impressive and give even the fastest modules on the market a run for their money.
Our OCZ DDR2 PC2-8800 Gold Edition memory kit does exactly what it's rated to do and performs very well in all the benchmarks that we threw at it. We were able to reach 1111MHz with aggressive 4-4-4-12 2T timings, but needed to increase the voltage so high that it voided the lifetime warranty to hit stability. At these speeds we were able to get the modules to perform the same as the Corsair XMS2 DOMINATOR PC2-8888 kit, but at the cost of our warranty. When we kept the timings loose and ran the modules at 2.42V (our motherboard didn't have 2.40V) we were able to get the 1100MHz modules up to 1140MHz with 100% stability at 5-6-6-15 timings.
