OCZ PC-2400 256MB Performance Enhanced DDR SDRAM
OCZ Performance Enhanced PC-2400 DDR SDRAM 256megs CAS 2-2-2. This DDR Memory runs at 300Mhz ( 150Mhz DDR). OCZ makes the best quality and performance memory and that's why " All OCZ memory carries lifetime warranty "

Your Price: $ 46.99

so basically $50.99 for ups ground
or basically $58.99 for ups 2nd air

I've never heard of them before, but they are have that above quote. Got all this from...

I am planning on ordering some memory very soon, and was thinking of CAS2 PC2400, just wondering on this type.

sure they are pretty good. their pc2700 is also very good. make sure you get them with heatsinks.

I bought their PC2400, but didn't get heatsinks for the memory. Ya think 3 fans in the case is good enough?

Thanks,

James

Yeah I basically asked them as well and they said pc2400 should run fine without heatsinks. I have a workstation tower with tons of room in it, and 2 fans blowing out and 1 in the front blowing in. This should allow for a very cool inside. I will get everything Monday or Tuesday and build then, then will know for a fact ;-)

A heatsink isn't necessary because PC2700 has already been tested at 333MHz without heatsinks.

yes, but some are actualy 2400s oced to 2700s. :smile:

huh?? They are all overclocked memory, it's just that they have been tested to run at 300MHz or 333MHz without any problems.

no, they are not all oced. some are true 2700s.

When's the last time you ran your DDR at a FSB of 166 without overclocking it?

hmmmmm. i don't think i have. if you are trying to say that it would be the same thing to take pc2100 and overclock it up to pc2700 its actualy not. its the same as pc133 also woking at pc100. not all pc2700s are oced pc2100s, but they will also work at slower speeds as well.

Since you guys are chatting about overclocking, I have a quick question. I should be setting up my machine tomorrow or tuesday, depends on when my memory gets here. All of my new machine will come tomorrow except possibly the memory.

I'm buying PC2400 as you can see from the original thread. Will it by default run faster than PC2100 when I put the memory in, or do I need to OC it? So will it run at 300MHZ instead of 266MHZ by default?

Even if it is "true" PC2700, why would you need ramsinks? Scamtron, you're not making any sense!!

It is EXACTLY the same thing, except PC2700 is certified to run at a 166MHz bus. When the SiS645 (and other) chipsets come out supporting PC2700 natively, that'll be different.

Have you seen the poll about you? Maybe you shouldn't be quite so cocky.

well i don't know if you have touched all three rams at 2100, 2400, and 2700, but the faster ones do run hotter. and the problem is the pc will crash. lol i was trying to see if i could use gum to put a piece of aluminum on my ram for a test. after 7 minuts there was gum all over the ram legs. stupid. yes i know, but i found out some mother boards crash and some don't without a heatsink.

Then they were not running PC2400 or PC2700 RAM!!! PC2400 and PC2700 RAM are certified to run at 150 or 166MHz without any extra stuff. If you get crashes then the problem lies in other components in the system.

So far my OCZ PC2400 is rocking at 133Hhz. Just now putting my machine together. After getting the machine the way I want I'm going to run some Sisoft Sandra tests on the memory. After that, i'll bump it to 150Mhz and look at the results & post later.
December 18, 2001 5:53:03 PM

Well silly me didn't realize I couldn't bump my speed to 150 on my motherboard. But with my bus slightly overclocked, i'm getting rocking results from Sisoft Sandra memory benchmarks and my machine runs pretty cool.

i am curious, how much memory did you get?
December 23, 2001 2:35:26 AM

I have 512MB total, 2 256MB PC2400 CL2 DDR RAM OCZ Technology
December 23, 2001 6:41:49 AM

Right, so back to the main point...OCZ is ok though, right?

This entire thread has been confusing me so far, but if I got it right, what's below is "true" PC-2700 from OCZ, meaning it's not OC'd, and shouldn't require any additional cooling, not even the heat spreaders they've included, er right?

December 23, 2001 11:51:30 AM

Yes, all true. It seems that it already has a heatsink attached, however.

OCZ seems quite good to me so far. I've had it in my machine now for 2 or 3 weeks and all seems good. Unfortunately I can't talk about PC2700, since I only have PC2400. But the PC2400 does seem quite good. I bought it from http://hardcorecooling.com , so if you have any additional questions that someone can't answer here, you can always give them a buzz. I've overclocked my bus speed a little, which is overclocking the memory as well. So far it seems pretty good, and the temperatures on my processor as well as system seem quite good.
