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
Corsair TWINX2048-4000PT 2GB Kit DDR500 XMS4000
* 200MHz 2.5-3-3-7 1T 2.8v
* 240MHz 2.5-3-3-7 1T 2.8v
* 245MHz 2.5-4-3-7 1T 2.8v
* 270MHz 3.0-4-3-8 1T 2.8v
* 280Mhz 3.0-4-4-8 1T 2.8v
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..
