When it comes to overclocking RAM, we naturally think of Corsair, Crucial and OCZ.  These companies have dominated the enthusiast market for years, but today we are looking at some new memory from Super Talent that wants to share the spotlight.  This kit is rated at 1000Mhz at 5-5-5-15 which are pretty standard timings for memory of this speed.  This memory seems to be fairly plain in terms of features and specs, but we'll see how it holds up during testing in a couple minutes.  First, we'll learn a bit more about Super Talent and take a look at their memory.

First Look - Packaging:

Super Talent hasn't blown their budget on packaging the T1000UX2G5 memory.  The packaging is about as plain as you can get and still put it in a clamshell package.  This is not necessarily a bad thing, but if you're shopping for this memory in a retail environment, flashy packaging gets your attention.  If anything the minimalistic packaging may turn heads of those budget conscious shoppers, but sadly men like shiny things and would probably pass up the Super Talent package for some GeiL or Patriot memory.
