Patriot PC2-6400 Eased Latency:

The first kit we'll talk about is the PC2-6000 Eased Latency kit.  This kit is marketed toward consumers who want a great memory kit, without paying the price.  This kit comes with slow timings of 5-5-5-12 at DDR2-800 and is said to require 2.2v.  We ran this kit at 1.8v with no issues whatsoever and ran at recommend voltage while overclocking.  Although this kit will cost you the least amount of money, we found that it actually performed very well.

If you're observant, you'll notice a discrepancy here.  We stated that the "Eased Latency" kit runs at 5-5-5-12, and the sticker states 4-4-4 timings.  Patriot has the default SPD set at 5-5-5-12, but also claims the modules are tested at 4-4-4-12 @ 2.2v as well.  We'll treat these as their specs say - 5-5-5-12, but we will tighten up the timings and see how well they fare.

Patriot PC2-6400 Low Latency:

The next kit on the block is the Patriot PC2-6400 Low Latency kit.  This kit is marketed toward consumers who want a better-than-average memory kit and are willing to spend a little more but don't want to spend a lot.  This kit comes with more acceptable timings of 4-4-4-12 at DDR2-800 and is said to require 2.2v.  We ran this kit at 1.85v with no issues whatsoever and ran at the recommend 2.2v while overclocking.  Although this kit will cost you a little more than the "Eased Latency" DDR2-800, you may be willing to spend a little more for the tighter stock timings.
