SiSoft2007 reports very strong performance from the OCZ DDR PC3200 Special Ops Edition memory for a 2GB memory kit. Notice that the Corsair TWINX2024-4400Pro modules we compared against are rated for higher operating speed (DDR550).

Overclocking the OCZ memory bandwidth added some 500MB/s although the timings did need backing off. This memory topped out at 488MHz which is quite good for a 2GB memory kit rated at just 400MHz. The OCZ DDR PC3200 Special Ops Edition memory also showed strong performance in Cache Burst 32 and MemTach.
