DDR2 memory's headroom explored

Nathan over at Legit Reviews has posted an article about his experiences playing with DDR2 memory at lower latency settings and higher clock speeds than the stock DDR2 533 tests that first hit the web when the Intel 925X Express chipset arrived. He finds DDR2 memory able to keep up with DDR400 once the timings are cranked down, and DDR2 takes the lead at higher clock speeds. What's more, the headroom for turning up DDR2 speeds is wicked. His hit 733MHz without much trouble.

My experiences have been similar, although I don't have a water cooling rig for my Prescott test system. Stay tuned for more on this subject.
