GSkill FR & FF DDR Memory Review Shamino Jul 14th, 05, 10:56 PM #1

Gskill has been growing in popularity among the overclockers in the recent year. Since the advent of Samsung TCCD memory modules, they have been consistently coming out with very overclockable memory to satisfy the FSB/HTT hungry enthusiasts.
Today, we take a look at how 2 of their most high-end products fare, the FF and FR 512Mb x 2 kits.

Hey there Juan, its actually not the CPU speed ceiling yet, just either the CPU's on die memory controller limit or the board's HTT limit, the cpu speed can still go some more.
