    GeIL PC3500 Platinum Ultra Review - GeIL PC3500 Platinum Ultra Review

    (Page 2 of 5 )



    1. Hand picked 4.5ns GEIL GL2000 Chips

    2. Tin Coated Platinum Copper Heat Spreader

    3. Lifetime Warranty

    4. 6 Layer Ultra Low Noise Shielded PCB

    5. Available in up to 512MB Module

    6. 184 pin

    7. 32x8 Low Density, Unbuffered

    8. CAS 2 6-3-3 1T @ DDR433 PC3500

    9. CAS 2 5-2-2 1T @ DDR333 PC2700

    10. 2.5v-3.1v

    11. Neon Green Acrylic Case

    12. Installation Instructions

    I bolded the voltage specifications above to make sure everyone understands that you are probably going to need more than 2.5 volts to run this RAM to its potential.  Not to be worried though, this RAM is designed for this kind of abuse so you do not have to worry about over-volting related failures.  I have been running their older stick of PC3500 for 5 months at 2.9 volts with no problems.  They do also back up their memory with a Lifetime Warranty.


    The memory was tested in the following system:


    1. ABIT IT7 with the D7 modded bios to allow memory voltages to 3.2 volts
    2. P4 2.26GHz
    3. Wester Digital 80GB 7,200rpm ATA100 8MB cache hard drive
    4. ATI Radeon 9700Pro


    1. Windows XP Service Pack 1 with all updates
    2. SiSoft Sandra 2003.1.9.26
    3. 3DMark2001 SE build 330
    4. Code Creatures
    5. MemTach 0.93
    6. Particle Fury
    7. MemTest86 v3.0

    All benchmarks (except MemTest86) were run with the memory bus set to 163 MHz, 217 MHz (163MHz using the 3:4 CPU:Memory ratio) and 226MHz to see how far I could push the memory.  The CAS settings were set to the rated 2 6-3-3 and 2.5 volts at 163MHz and 2.9 volts for 217MHz and 226MHz.

    Lets start off with good ole Sandra.  Pretty much the staple of any memory or system benchmark.
