More about opinon samsung corsair 2700
  1. I haven't used Corsair (too expensive), but my Samsung 256MB PC2700 (DDR333) can handle 175MHz at CAS2. For 75 bucks, it's not bad.

    :smile: Good or Bad have no meaning at all, depends on what your point of view is.
  2. For me, Corsair, no question. Crucial will be my new choice when it becomes available in PC2700.

    I thought a thought, but the thought I thought wasn't the thought I thought I had thought.
  3. Where did you find CAS2 Samsung? I've checked around on pricewatch but only could find CAS2.5

  4. i think this is what your looking for???????????
    but, your right i can't find this paticular model on pricewatch either!!!!!!!!

  5. After seeing the latest memory review at <A HREF="http://www.vr-zone.com/reviews/Memory/HighPerfDDR" target="_new">vr-zone</A>, I'm thinking about changing my opinion on the Samsung DDR-2700. Samsung looks like it could be a good contender, but I'll reserve my opinion until I've had a chance to test with my own retail modules. If it works out, I could have better results for lower cost than Corsair. Still, it seems you have to do a bit of "burn-in" and purchasing heat-spreaders third party would even out the price a little.

    I thought a thought, but the thought I thought wasn't the thought I thought I had thought.
  6. It is CAS2.5, but I run it at CSA2 (2-6-2-2T Command). Bought it at Fry's few weeks ago when it was on sale ($80 now).

    :smile: Good or Bad have no meaning at all, depends on what your point of view is.
  7. I was thinking of going with the Samsung and hoping to make cas2, however the Corsiar comes with the heat spreaders and is rated cas2 for sure. How important are the heat spreaders to OC and regular use?
  8. Crucial will not put heatspreaders on their memory as they contend that it is only needed for overclocking, which is something they do not support.

    I always go with Crucial or Corsair. I have more confidence in Crucial, but Corsair comes out with new memory faster and is overclorker friendly. In my opinion both are above the competition in terms of quality.
  9. probably not very much... but they do have a number of advantages.

    1. heatspreaders DO get rid of more heat, useful if one will operate ones computer in very hot conditions
    2. i think they look cool
    3. protect the ram from accidental touches. always useful as u dont want it fried.

    as soon as i find some money i am going to get 1 stick of the new corsair, XMS2700 @ cas2 & 512mb. better i think than getting 2 sticks of 256.

    My tech advice here is not free. Email your credit card detials to mynic@hotmail.com :smile: :wink:
  10. The OCZ pc2700 ram looks really good...does anybody have any experiance with it or read any reviews? Also, on a kt333 board, is it possible to use pc3000 ddr ram, and if so, what are the advantages?
  11. A review of pc2700 ram <A HREF="http://www.vr-zone.com/reviews/Memory/HighPerfDDR/" target="_new">here</A>, Samsung the best, but the Corsair module looks really cool.
  12. Thanx for the review but does anyone know about the advantages of using pc3000 ddr in a kt333 as opposed to pc2700
  13. PC3000? err, what about a pc3200 one?
    KingMax is making ddr400(200mhz) sdram, but still very rare, and its CL2.5, I think the Samsung pc2700 with some better cooling should be ok to run at 200mhz(400mhz ddr).
  14. I just ordered the Samsung, even though its cas=2.5, it should still perform. I hope it's good.
  15. 1- Corsair
    2- Micron/Crucial
    3- N/A
