OCZ Micro BGA- PC-166 CL 2 - 256MB User ReviewsPC

8.0

Best SDRAM available IMHO

The good:

At the low voltage of 3.24V does 2-2-2-5 at 150Mhz, my PIII 700 is the bottleneck. BGA packaging.

Summary:

As any PC-166 Memory Module, this one is aimed to the Overclocker's market.
Expect a rock solid system at the most agressive timings (NT envoirement, ASUS CUV4X, 700@1050 in my case), but the motherboard is a crucial factor too. This startles me a bit because two things. The one is that i read on a couple of reviews bad performance from the Tomicon BGA DIMMs, and the other is that SiSoft Sandra reports "CAS2 up to 125MHz, CAS3 up to 166MHz" (!) The BGA chips are 6ns rated, so it's indeed suited to run at 166Mhz (there are reports of _several_ Tomicon's running at 183), but the CAS puzzles me...
