i need some pc3200 to go with my 7VAXP and mobile XP2500 barton. Iv been looking at crucial as it is cheaper than other makes and it had a great review in custom pc magazine.
just wondering if anyone had any views about this ram.
im currently running my cpu at 12.5/173 which gives me 2156mhz im hoping to push this t 200fsb with 3200.
thanks for the help.

Crucial has a great reputation for stability, I've never had a problem with their RAM.

Crucial is the daughter company of Micron who makes chips for other brands of memory. They are definitely tier one.

Crucial generally isn't the fastest(though I had several trays of PC133 that had ~144mhz dont' remember exact number chips on them back in the day), but has a great warranty, and I've only once had to use it, on an Asus board that had known problem with too high a voltage on vdimm. That was years ago though. Crucial has always been extremely reliable ram for me. Course, not using it in my main system right now, but that's not hte point. ;)

Right and I use the stuff default is 8,3,3,3.5 and it lets me crank it to and runs in overcloked BIOS settings in my motherboard.

Stable as a rock, in fact I posted on this before as I had so many troubles with Kingston RAM in my new MoB and laready spent loads on the wifes 2800+ box for 1 Gig Of matched 512MB sticks or Corsair ram.

I went down in cost on the Crucial dual channel DDR400 512MB sticks for my box and never looked back great stuff.
