“Everyone knows that the HWBOT database is filled with benchmark results, overclocking data and so much more. One of the perks of having a database like this is not only to amuse (and annoy) overclockers globally, but mainly to analyze the results afterwards and have a better understanding of how the overclocking game really works. Processor and video card charts are scattered around the website, but memory overclocking charts is something we have not touched before.”
Here are some more Memory articles from around the web:
- Patriot Sector 5 DDR3-2400 4GB @ Overclockers.com
- G.Skill Flare Series PC3-16000 (2000MHz) 4GB Kit @ Tweaktown
- A-DATA Plus Series PC3-15000 (1866MHz) 6GB Kit @ Tweaktown
- Kingston HyperX Blu 4GB Kit 1600MHz (KHX1600C9D3B1K2) @ Bjorn3D
- Everything You Always Wanted to Know About SDRAM (Memory): But Were Afraid to Ask @ AnandTech
HWBot is a board that keeps track of the successes that people have had overclocking various components and the benchmarks generated by those overclocks. MADSHRIMPS delves into one particular component, the RAM and looks at the three variables that generate the most pertinent to overclocking RAM, the Frequency, tCL and tRCD. There is a bit of math you need to follow in order to see how they arrived at the ratings on the charts at the end of the article, but then again if you want to get the best overclock you probably already have pages of notes from your own experiments.
