what to avoid... i went all the way around the world to get hold of this ram and got verry dissapointed. and yes i read the reviews and comments on newegg.com but i guess the guy posted the comment is on cracked. :x
ok here goes the problem.. " yes it does reach 270~280mhz @ 3-4-4-8 1T/2T" The problem is when you reach 210fsb you get all the f*c*ing st*p*d errors from memtest and prime95.. i bought this ram expecting it to reach atleast the said 250fsb DDR500 and yes it reach that speed though, BUT with all the stup*d errors when u hit 210fsb. but with 200fsb its fine. so my lesson here is if only i knew i would get the DDR400 with tight timings like 2-3-2-5 or 2-3-3-6.. coz with the corsair DDR500 i didnt get the performance i paid for. and now im back home and no corsair dealers/manufacturers on our country..
you cannot use mushkin ram on a slidr board it will not work.
Where did you hear that? Ive been doing a lot of research on DFI boards because that is my next upgrade path, and ive read on DFI-street that people have had pretty good success with the higher end Mushkin ram in slidr expert, ultra-d, etc.
Check out this Forum. Its the best place to find out anything about your DFI board.
