Patriot PC2-9200 2GB Memory Kit Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
After many years in the industry, Patriot is finally getting the recognition it deserves for its high-quality, yet surprisingly affordable, memory kits. From the PC2-4200 XBL in 2004, to the current PC2-9600 XBL, Patriot has certainly used DDR2 as a platform from which to launch itself into the enthusiast market. Virtual-Hideout has just posted a review of Patriots PC2-9200 Extreme 2GB memory kit.
Lets see what they had to say:
The results are pretty simple and very easy to understand. Big frequencies can produce big frame rates for the avid gamer and shorter compilation times for the audio or video users. Getting there requires a good set of memory modules that are stable and reliable. What you get with the Patriot Extreme PC2-9200 memory is just that. Not only are they extremely reliable at 800MHz, they are also very eager to break the 1250MHz barrier exceeding their rated frequencies by 125MHz. More over, the modules were avid CAS 4 performers up to 1066MHz where a lot of current enthusiasts find to be an excellent performance level for their current system.
If you are looking for a memory kit that is guaranteed to hit high speeds, this product is certainly worthy of consideration. However, if you are willing to test your luck, and want to save approximately $100 USD, I would highly recommend the Crucial Ballistix PC2-8500. Many users have overclocked their kits to 1200Mhz and above, with minimal additional voltage. Having said that, the Patriot is still very respectably priced for a PC2-9200 kit.
