This memory is easily the fastest memory I have used. I was able to push my memory bus and CPU to higher overclocks than I previously had with it and was able to use the faster CAS 2 memory timings.
The memory, based on my other experiences with GeIL, seems to be very well made with solid performance. They even throw in a few nice things like the tin coated copper heat spreaders which will look very nice in any case, a nice acrylic case (doesn't do much but it sure is pretty), installation instructions for you newbies out there, and of course the lifetime warranty.
My only concerns about the GeIL PC3500 Platinum Ultra were the results from MemTest86. This is the first time I have run that particular utility and it seems very robust, even recommended by Corsair to check for faulty memory. However, the memory works so well in Windows and all the applications (read games) that I have run with it, it leaves me confused. I do believe that the memory is good for loyal OCA readers to use, but until I can run MemTest86 on some more memory to see if it is a fault in the utility it leaves me a little uneasy.
Fastest Memory I've ever used
CAS 2 at 446MHz!!!
Requires a lot of voltage, make sure your motherboard can handle it
MemTest86 results ???
I have noticed something while using GeIL memory that I don't know how to quantify. When pushed too far, the ram causes the system to not boot. When using some competitors memories I have gotten corrupt Windows registries and have sometimes had to format and reload Windows. It may just be luck, but this is the third stick of GeIL I have used and each time it comes up the same way.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks to GeILUSA for providing this sample for review.
