Well I have some crappy OCZ 5-5-5-15 RAM with whatever bad IC Chips were put on it.
Long story short I've never built myself a "Hardcore" machine before so I kind of shorted myself in areas where I shouldn't have shorted and/or have waited (Specifically I really wish I waited for P35 lol)
Anyway I was looking at our list of RAM IC Chips and in the Q&A it says that D9GMH/D9GKX were the best ... it also mentioned ProMOS????
On that same note I only noticed ProMOS chips in the PC3200/+ modules but regardless I'm kind of curious if I should upgrade my ram now for about $60-$70 or if I should just wait till DDR3 comes down and get whatever new chipset will be coming out.
I've heard theres going to be a new socket near the end of '08 with the 32nm Intel's but I dunno
Admittedly theres nothing wrong with my system - it runs fine...mostly, but I do have the attitude to make everything the best it can be
If you're pleased with how your system is running now, there's no point in upgrading. End of '08 will bring the 45nm native octo-core Nehalem which has an onboard DDR3 memory controller which can handle 6 RAM modules. You could always grab a second GTX and/or a new PSU. ramlist.ath.cx
Use that to find RAM that is a good price, and has the right IC's.
Crucial has started shipping their new single sided ram that do not offer the same OCing as the double sided micron D9GMH ICs. The new single sided ICs are D9NHL, which are not OCing as well. I read a review where the 1066 kits where topping out at 1129.
