Which Brand is Best?

I'm looking at putting together a new system with an ASUS A7N8X Deluxe Motherboard and an AMD XP2200+. I'm wondering which brand of the following would be the best to put in my system:
2 x KingMax 512MB PC-2700 DDR333 SDRAM
2 x SAMSUNG 512MB PC2700 DDR333 184PIN
2 x INFINEON 512MB PC2700 DDR333 184PIN

Appreciate all replies

More about which brand best
  1. None of the above are great overclockers so I wouldnt consider them for myself...the best ddr memory available right now comes from Corsair (the pc3200xms modules) and from Mushkin
    I would suggest OCZ pc3500 but the Asus A7n8x has been said to have problems with pc3500.

    If you are NOT going to overclock your memory the best out of your selections would be the samsung

  2. I don't have plans to overclock my memory anytime in the near future, I'm just looking for quality memory that will allow for a stable system. Thanks
  3. I've used Infineon and no problems at all. I heard orginal Samsung is good too. Don't know too much about Kingmax, so take your pick.

  4. Does the infineon run at cas 2 w/aggressive timings?? What about crucial??

    I'm about to get a stick or 2 of DDR ram(My board takes either), probably 1 or 2 512mb sticks...

    I want a Mustang...
  5. Kingmax Memory, based in taiwan, is the largest memory producer for the Taiwan and Asia Pacific markets. Their RAMs come with a life-time warranty.
  6. Now knowing this do you know anything about the quality of the Kingmax ram?? Thanks
  7. My only problem is finding quality ram at a good price here in Canada. If anyone knows any good Canadian online vendors(other then NCIX and CanadaComputers), hook me up. Thanks
  8. any of those three will serve your purpose since you are not overclocking....just pick one and go with it

  9. Of course if you want dual-channel operation, Corsair is now also selling RAM in pairs for just such a purpose. :)

    I'm using two sticks of 256MB DDR333 Kingmax RAMs running at CL2.5 without overclocking. Never got any problem with them. Perhaps the following review should convince you about the quality of Kingmax products.

  12. You should look into dealing with <A HREF="http://www.shoplci.com " target="_new">http://www.shoplci.com </A>

    They are based in Montréal and have access to very recent hardware, their site made to ease online purchases. I'm not sure if they will ship across Canada but an e-mail should clear that issue.
