Which is the 'BIG Daddy' of RAM these days?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Whats the king ram available today? Corsair Dominator GT's? Team Xtreem ram? Im wanting to know whats best with regards to overclocking and at what speeds. I know full well regarding things like graphics cards and CPU's, but when it comes to RAM im pretty clueless. Whats different types of ram I hear about such as 'hypers' etc etc and which overclock best? How can you tell what sort of ram is 'hypers' or other?

ta!

Samsung. 'Nuff said. Reasons listed above.

In other brands, Corsair and G-Skill have been pretty nice lately in their offerings.

I've seen them do 7-8-7 at 1600, and some have reported 7-7-7. The nice thing though is that they are 4Gb modules, which tend to not run as low timings compared to 2Gb modules. So for 4Gb modules, 7-8-7 is really good IMO.
