Futuremark PCMark Vantage
“PCMark Vantage is a PC benchmark suite designed for Windows Vista offering one-click simplicity for casual users and detailed, professional grade testing for industry, press and enthusiasts.
A PCMark score is a measure of your computer’s performance across a variety of common tasks such as viewing and editing photos, video, music and other media, gaming, communications, productivity and security.
From desktops and laptops to workstations and gaming rigs, by comparing your PCMark Vantage score with other similar systems you can find the hardware and software bottlenecks that stop you getting more from your PC.”

MaxxMEM 2
“Is the *little brother of MaxxPI², it contains the same Memorybenchmark routine as MaxxPI² does.
So your reaced results will be comparable to Memory / Latency benchmarks done by MaxxPI².”


G.Skill constantly keeps me amazed with the incredible products they put out. Visiting any large forum you will see some very impressive numbers featuring G.Skill product. This kit here may not hit 2400 MHz at CAS 10, but it did achieve 2240 MHz without having to resort to go below CAS 10. So, there is definitely value in this kit.

One thing many will nice about the kit is you don’t have to worry as much with cooler selection as you would with some other kits. With the Thermaltake Frio Extreme cooler the fans did sit on top of the heat spreaders of the kit but did not interfere with performance of the cooler at all.

The XMP function is one the easiest features to like about this kit or any other kit for that matter. It is a no-brainer when it comes to running the kit at its rated speeds. a quick trip to the BIOS and selecting the XMP option is all it takes.  There is no reason to run at a slower speed when you don’t have to.

Google shopping reveals the kit selling for as low as $73 but from a store we have never hear of. $89 from the Egg who is well known and a pretty trust online shop.
