After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at

    The system as it was tested
    LanParty Pro875 Rev-B
    Pentium 4 3.0Ghz 512KB L2 cache 800MHz FSB
    AVC Sunflower II Heatsink
    2x Corsair TwinX1024-3200LLPRO 512megs
    ATI Radeon 9700 Pro
    IBM Hitachi Deskstar 80gig SerialATA 7200RPM
    Antec 430watt power supply
    12x/40x DVD/CDRom
    Windows XP Professional Service Pack 1
    For these benchmarks the Corsair TwinX ProSeries 3200LL will be used at default speed and overclocked with a comparison between the two. SPD timings were used for both tests with no adjustments to DIMM voltage.
    CPU-Z Default and Overclocked
    SiSoft Sandra
    Sandra is a software collection of synthetic benchmarks that will give us a basic idea as to what a system is capable of. It should be noted that SiSoft numbers change depending on what version you have installed, these were recorded using Sandra Professional Version 2004.10.9.89
    Cachemem is a synthetic benchmark used to test bandwidth and latency.
    Benchmark Conclusion
    I have used these modules in conjunction with previous Corsair modules and found the default performance to be the same with one major difference; I have never been able to run any TwinX 3200LL module at 220Mhz until now. This overclock is not limited just to this Canterwood board either. You will notice that the same overclock was attained on the Chaintech ZNF3-150 Athlon 64 3200+ system as well.
