is this a good deal on memory, if not suggestions?

i also found this memory corsair, higher cas 4 timings but at 1.9 volt wondering if id get the same cas with the 2.2 volt on that.

i do see ocz memory cheaper but ive heard alot of incompatibility issues, im going to be using the evga 680i motherboard so i want to use a widely compatable memory like crucial or corsair but open to reccomendations.

note ill be using e6600 oced 9x333 with 1-1 ratio on a 680i motherboard

thanks for your time.

Looks good to me. Even on the C2D benchmarking that in general showed DDR2-533 to give higher performance, the exception was DDR2-667 @CL3 timing, so I would run this at DDR2-667 no matter what kind of system you have (assuming you are not OCing).

*claps at you* :trophy: Congratulations!
You just found the cheapest Micron D9GMH in the market. But these modules seem to have a higher binning than the regular ones since they can do 400Mhz CL3, theyll run stock (since arent factory overclocked at all) at 1.8v~1.9v rock solid by the way. Easy youll be running these at 500+Mhz CL5 at the advertised voltage. Theres no reason to stop at 333Mhz FSB...

Im not yet sure what Corsair is using under those platinum heatspreaders but w/e it is its not as good as the Crucial set, just by looking at the specs. Besides, the Crucial comes with a chocolate hehe

Wait to see the Asus and DFI with the 680i chipset before you jump on the eVGA.
