That is the test result you are looking at...2x2Gb modules of G.Skill PC-1066.
Btw, the G.Skill modules won't OC at all past 1066 no matter how much voltage you give them!

I can also run the Corsair to about 1100MHz but I have to use 2.20v & only use the match set that uses the Micron D9 chips.
The test with the Corsair is with 2Gbs (1x1Gbs-matched pair & D9 chips) at 1000MHz with the same exact timing as the G.Skill.
The other set I got has who know what in them as they don't OC very well at all & can't even do 1000 @ 5-5-5-15 CR2 like the ones in the test comparison.

Sandra reports that the G.Skill is running at only 32% efficiency at 1066!
Whereas the Corsair at 800MHz has just about the same scores at 5-5-5-15 timings with 200MHz less speed, so somethings not right.

I left a message on the G.Skill support site to see if these scores are average for the set I got, but I don't see how.

Anyways I'm able to run all 4 sticks of the Corsair modules at 980MHz which still out scores the G.Skill 1066MHz...
