Super Talent has released a powerhouse of RAM - the new PC8000 DDR2-1000 T1000UX2G5 2GB kit. It carries a hefty $400-$500 MSRP pricetag, but we couldn't find it for sale anywhere online. It's sleek design is complemented by it's bright royal blue heatsinks that surround the entire stick of RAM, cooling the RAM very efficiently.

The results show that this RAM is very capable of being overclocked and has no problem whatsoever at running high speeds. Before the overclock, we were running the RAM at 800MHz at 5-5-5-15 timings, and after the overclock, we ran it at 1008MHz at 5-6-7-18. It didn't get very hot either, due to the fantastic heatsinks on the RAM. I would recommend this RAM to anyone who is looking for high quality RAM that overclocks well.
