Hello, I've got 2 GB of Kingston Ram (DDR, Dual Channel, 4 X 512MB). The default speed is 400 MHz (200MHz x 2). I heard that Kingston RAM is best, so I decided to overclock it (60Mhz) . Now my memory is running at 460 MHz (230MHz x 2). After testing it with PCMark05, I've noticed very high results and now I'm not pretty sure if they were right. My Kingston outperformed DDR2 800MHz Crucial RAM!!
Here are my results:
and here DDR2 800MHz Crucial:

My PC spec:
Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition 3,5 GHz (Dual SMT, 1 GHz FSB)
GeForce 7800GS+ (G71) (performs as 7900GT)
2 GB Ram (Kingston)
Seagate Barracuda HDD 720GB SATA2, NCQ, 7200/16MB.
What do you think about those results, are they correct?
