Good stuffl, imo.

That's right man, Im with Corsair XMS2 DDR PRO. Got 2gb set overclocked from 533ghz @ 3-3-3-8 to 667 @ 4-4-4-12 timings at 2.0 volts stable. Check it out.

I've been using Corsair memory module for a while now. Very reliable and lifetime warranty. Highly recommended. 8)

It all depends on the needs : RAM chips !

In one rig I have Corsair (940) SK8N (registered),

Buy the fastests and the chippest! (more RAM for your money!)

OCZ with (2-2-2-5-1T) 1 gig (2 x 512) only U$ 130.00 (chepper than equal Corsair U$ 165 for unbufered.

I will NOT trade ENERMAX for anything else or "Better"!

Corsair XMS CL2

Good luck with that.

There's more to module manufacturing than dumping working chips on the module and adding traces.

But if you're willing to live without guarantees for a few $$ off, go for it.

Personally, I'd spend an extra few bucks for a lifetime guarantee from a top tier manufacturer that stands behind their product.

Being that I use DFI boards, Corsair seems to have issues with their boards. I have corsair on this board with no problems though. I'm getting ready to put together a DFI Expert AMD system and for that I will use Crucial or Mushkin.

I've been using OCZ for a couple of years and really like it. 2x1gb and 2x512mb both platinum EL series work great. Overclock well and very stable. And they will let you up the voltage to 2.8 without voiding the lifetime warranty.

Corsair only for me.

how about buying directly from the Module maker like Samsung or MIcron?
February 11, 2006 10:48:00 PM

Well that answers my question =) I was just curious because i was going through Pricewatch and they were really cheap lol
February 14, 2006 6:35:44 AM

I'd use who ever uses the chip I want on their module and sell for the cheapest price.

At the risk of sounding uninformed, what chip should I want? And how can I see what chip it is under those heat shield thingys?
February 14, 2006 7:14:19 AM

Micron, Samsung, Winbond are usually pretty good.

You can't see what is under the heatspreaders unless you remove them ( sometimes they are not removable - so be very careful ).

You can look up the part numbers on the module to determine what chips are used underneath some manufacturers will tell you what chips were used.
