Benchmarks - Overclocked
As with all of our reviews, we pit the default speed system against the overclocked one in a head-to-head byte match. The only difference in our memory reviews is that whenever possible the base system, CPU, Chipset etc.. are left at stock speeds which is expressed in our Sandra CPU Tests. This leaves the only performance advantage being an increase in memory speed and timing changes.
The effective overclock for these tests was pushing the modules up to 3200Mhz without a voltage bump. Memory timings did not change for this overclock however there was 200Mhz added to the memory clock.
Memory overclocking is usually an arduous task of trial and error though with the Ballistix Sport AT it was simply a matter of setting XMP and changing the memory multiplier. Of course I did try to get more from these modules by increasing the memory frequency, changing timings and altering voltage. Sadly none of these changes did much leaving me to settle with a 200Mhz overclock.
I believe with some work these modules could run faster which will be left for another review with a different system configuration.
