    Cool 2x2GB G.Skill F2-8000CL5D 4GBPQ 5-5-5-15

    First time checking out a 2x2GB DDR2 kit of memory and the first contender to reach my hands is a 4GB G.Skill F2-8000CL5D 4GBPQ 5-5-5-15 dual channel kit fresh off the production lines according to serial number = 740 = week 40, 2007. Thanks G.Skill for supplying the kit

    Product url http://gskill.com/en/f2-8000cl5d-pq.html

    Specification:
    • Capacity 4GB (2GB x 2)
    • Speed 1000MHz DDR2 (PC2-8000)
    • CAS Latency CL 5-5-5-15
    • Test Voltage 2.0~2.1 Volts
    • PCB 6 Layers PCB
    • Registered/Unbuffered Unbuffered
    • Error Checking Non-ECC
    • Type 240-pin DIMM
    • Warranty Lifetime






    Poor lighting forced me to use flash on my camera

    From irev210's review photo here it seems to be non-Micron based ICs.

    Seems to be close to max at 2.10v memory voltage so far with AUTO set subtimings and manually set tRFC 48 value.

    It's Powerchip.

    Everybody seems to be getting similar results. With that consistency the kit indeed is great value for money.

    As always, great review George!

    Nice testing eva2000! It seems the average 4GBPQ is good for a 10~20MHz OC @CL5. It suprises me that this memory runs better at Trfc=48 on the P35. Denny also tested his memory on a DFI P35.

    I could'nt get my system boot with tRFC=48 at 520MHz 5-5-5-15. On my P5B Deluxe 965 I need at least tRFC=50.

    I can't wait to see your CL4 tests.

    Nice review Eva.

    I have my kit now, been doing testing on it since Thursday night. I've actually had better luck on the overclocking side of things than most others have. I'll be posting my review within the next few days.

    I want to buy these, but I can't find a shop in the Netherlands that provide these kits.
    In Germany I can't find a shop which has these kits on stock.
    Also not on stock in the shops I searched in the UK (also in UK veery expensive).

    Newegg has these on stock and very nice price, but doesn't ship international

    Anybody any suggestions for a shop that has these kits on stock and can ship it to the Netherlands?

    Thnx in advance!

    Try 2.2v. Although don't expect to get much higher then that at CL4.

    Sorry to bring this thread back from it's slumber

    but I'm having issues with this memory and my Abit IP35pro

    timings where set 5 5 5 15 in bios with 2.1V-2.2v under vista x64 it seen fine no blue screen but under winXP x64 i keep getting Disk.sys stop: 0X00000050 after bit of research it's now doing little better with 5 5 5 15 TRFC 45 but yesterday i got my first blue screen again after 1 whole day of been blue screen.

    my question is if i wanted to run @ DDR 1000 speeds what are the best stable timings should i use for stable system.


    got to give to MS looks like vista handles error better then XP.
    (i do notice my system bit feels slower then my X2-4400+ running vista 32bit my guess the memory is affecting it cause there both have the same tweaks and system with more Ram should be smooth not to mention 4 cores)


    my specs are

    Q6600
    abit IP35 pro bios 16 B4
    8GB of Gskill F2-8000CL5D-4GBPQ
    7300le "for now"
    Audigy 2 ZS
    Dual Antec true 550

    i do see timings posted on the first few post but guessing those are set for best performance squeezing out the last MB is there any timings for stability.


    thx

    PS here a thread i started on abit forums http://forum.uabit.com/showthread.php?t=133965
    i blame the board but looks like it's the memory who is to blame

    TRFC at 48 or higher.

    And in the future, to avoid those problems, always use memtest.
