Default Super Talent PC2-6400 4GB Testing

I originally posted this over at XS, but this forum needs more overclocking talk.

I have been playing with 4GB configurations lately, and thought I would give the results of some of my Super Talent tests. The modules I am using are the T800UX2GC4, that are PC2-6400 speeds using 4-4-3-8 timings at 1.8v. They either use Micron Rev D (9KGX).

I've been playing with these all weekend, and am quite impressed with the results. The 4GB results keep extremely close to the 2GB results; I will show comparisons after the pictures.

Windows MemTest (4 * 1GB at 3-3-3-8 400MHz)

SANDRA Unbuffered, EVEREST Write and Sciencemark (4 * 1GB, 4-4-4-12, 400MHz)

SANDRA Unbuffered, EVEREST Read (4 * 1GB, 4-4-4-8, 445MHz)

SANDRA Unbuffered, EVEREST Read (4 * 1GB, 4-4-4-8, 467MHz)

Comparison shot: SANDRA Unbuffered, Sciencemark, EVEREST Latency, (2 * 1GB, 5-5-5-8, 540MHz)

2GB vs 4GB
400MHz 3-3-3-8 Sandra Unbuffered: 3615 vs 3554 (2GB is 1.7% faster)
400MHz 3-3-3-8 Everest Latency: 80.3 vs 81.7 (2GB is 1.7% faster)
467MHz 4-4-4-8 Sandra Unbuffered: 4729 vs 4655 (2GB is 1.6% faster)
467MHz 4-4-4-8 Everest Write: 3290 vs 3335 (4GB is 1.35% faster)
467MHz 4-4-4-8 Everest Latency: 67.5 vs 68.7 (2GB is 1.75% faster)
467MHz 4-4-4-8 PC Mark Mem Test: 5356 vs 5292 (2GB is 1.2% faster)

I hope someone finds this info useful. I am not really done my comparison tests yet, but it's nice to see that the 4 * 1GB overclocks just as well as 2 * 1GB. 280FSB and DDR2-933 speeds are always a sweetspot on my system, and it's nice to see 4655/4673 Sandra Unbuffered for a 4GB kit. I am not complaining
Intel Core i7-3960X, GIGABYTE G1.Assassin 2, Kingston 16GB DDR3-2133, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 2GB
Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD (OS, Apps), WD VR 1TB (Games), Corsair 1000HX, Corsair H70 Cooler
Corsair 800D, Dell 2408WFP 24", ASUS Xonar Essence STX, Gentoo (KDE 4.11. 3.12 Kernel)
