Quoted from PDP Patriot PC2-8500 Kit Reviews:
Check out these quotes from PDP Patriot PC2-8500 Kit reviews & previews
"This memory kit achieved the same performance of Corsair TWIN2X1024-8500, which has the same speed grade and runs with very similar timings (5-5-5-15 vs. 5-5-5-16 on the reviewed kit) and quoted at the same price range. The difference between the two was on overclocking: we achieved a higher overclocking with Patriot’s part. So if we were overclockers looking for a DDR2-1066 kit, we’d go with Patriot – if money weren’t an issue, of course."
"The Patriot PC2-8500 modules may not overclock to sky-high levels, but they do meet their specifications -- which at 5-5-5-9 are lower-latency than most other PC2-8500 modules on the market (which usually run at 5-5-5-15). Even without overclocking, the Patriot modules offer solid performance at their rated speed. Even more, they significantly exceed their specified timings at a slightly lowered clock rate, offering overall much better performance at 1044-4-4-4-12 than the official 1067-5-5-5-9 timing. I don't know about you, but I'll take actual, measurable performance advantages over a superficial 23 MHz gain."
"...the Patriot PDC22G8500ELK isn't the cheapest PC2-8500 kit on the market. However, when you consider that it is capable of almost DDR2-1200 (PC2-9600) the price suddenly becomes much more appealing."
"It was a pleasure working with this memory. It ran at the advertised speeds flawlessly and it even ran better than advertised. I think that with another motherboard, I may be able to get this ram into windows much higher than 1150 MHz. I would love to try it as soon as I get the chance. It seemed to perform well in real world applications and it scaled well as I increased the frequency. The extra frequency that this ram is capable of gives a very nice boost to the frames per second in games for a better, smoother and faster game playing experience. I can only guess at this time the difference it would make to use this ram with a motherboard that made use of its EPP capabilities. This would be very interesting to test out."
