Patriot Extreme Performance (PDC22G8500ELK) DDR2 2GB Kit

3DMark05/06, CS:Source & F.E.A.R Results

3DMark05/06, Counter-Strike:Source & F.E.A.R

Patriot PC2-8500 3DMark05 Patriot PC2-8500 3DMark06

Both 3DMark05 and 3DMark06 showed the best results with the memory overclocked to 592mhz. Probably the largest reason for this is that both testing suites are heavily influenced by processor speed and in order to run the memory at 592mhz the CPU speed was raised from 2.66ghz to 2.96ghz.

Patriot PC2-8500 Counter-Strike Patriot PC2-8500 F.E.A.R

As expected F.E.A.R thrives on the higher memory and CPU speed, showing an 11fps advantage over the stock settings when running at 592mhz.

Counter-Strike:Source completely turns the tables on the rest of the benchmark results by performing best at stock frequencies with 4-4-4-6 timings. With the memory overclocked to 592mhz, the results are actually lower than when the memory and cpu are running completely at stock.
