Now this is where we begin to see some improvement as the more expensive OCZ and Crucial memory are able to outpace the cheaper Corsair ValueSelect memory.
The memory frequency of the Corsair memory actually went backwards once the processor was overclocked as it could not handle anything other than a 1:1 ratio. The Crucial and OCZ memory on the other hand accepted the 2.66x multiplier, which allowed them to operate at 975MHz. Again the OCZ memory did so with slightly better timings. This saw the memory bandwidth figure rise from 6.4GB/s to almost 7.3GB/s. The Corsair ValueSelect memory gained just 200MB/s.
