Overclocked Inside give us a look at these memory modules:

In the last months there were speculations in many forums regarding the Micron ICs used on the very inexpensive Crucial PC2-4200 DDR2 memory modules.  At we've already published several reviews of Crucial PC2-8500, PC2-8000, PC2-6400 and PC2-5300 memory modules, whereby we've recently also tested a 2GB PC2-4200 ECC kit.  However, the ECC kit was equipped with Elpida memory chips instead of high overclockable Micron D9GMH ICs.  Who order the memory modules in online shops, has usually no further information regarding the module assembly and can only trust reviews or experiences of other buyers.

Read the full review at Overclocked Inside:

The test results are based on an ASRock AM2XLI eSATA2 SLI motherboard with an Athlon 64 Socket AM2 3000+  CPU on different frequencies depending on the reference clock for the different memory benchmarks.  Thus the multiplier adjustment remains on 9x with all frequencies, because an adjustment for the CPU in half multiplier steps would be too inaccurate to get nearly the same CPU frequency for all tests.  Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP2 is used as the operating system.  The stability was examined with the software Memtest86 and SiSoft Sandra Lite 2007.SP1 program is used for all benchmarks, since it offers extensive adjustments and a fast result comparison.  BTW, the latest SiSoft Sandra 2008 version is available on our download server and can be downloaded much faster and  very easily - ALL benchmarks are also included in the free Lite version.
