G.Skill 4GB DDR2-800 Pi Black Series Dual Channel Memory Kit
October 21, 2008

Configuration:

The following components were used with the G.Skill 4GB DDR2-800 Pi Black Series dual channel memory kit for this review.

Intel Xeon X3210 quad core processor
OCZ Technology Vendetta 2 CPU cooler
ASUS P5K PRO Intel P35 based motherboard
Sapphire 512MB Toxic Radeon HD4870 PCI Express graphics card
Maxtor MaxLine III 250GB SATA 3Gbps hard drive
Nesteq 700W modular power supply
Windows Vista Home Premium with SP1 (64-Bit)


The images below show the key components listed above installed with the G.Skill 4GB DDR2-800 Pi Black Series dual channel memory kit. While the layout of this system avoids any interference issues, users of oversized CPU coolers or compact cases should keep the height of the Pi Series heatspreader in mind.

The screenshots below show the data provided by CPU-Z version 1.47 after booting into Windows with everything in the BIOS set to automatic. The below left image shows the SPD tab where it can be seen that four profiles in total are provided, with two for 400MHz (800 MHz DDR2). The first 400MHz profile would be equivalent to a JEDEC standard configuration, while the EPP #1 profile is where the tighter timings come into play. This motherboard does not support EPP, so adjustments will be made manually. The below right image shows the Memory tab, where we see that the motherboard's automatic configuration booted this memory with timings of 5-5-5-15.
