Corsair DDR2-8500

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Would this memory actually aid overclocking the P5B dlx, or is it waste of money?

Are you talking about the 8500C5 stuff? If so this stuff can fly! It is rated as one of the fastest DDR2 ram on the market at this time.

My GSkill 8000 with stock timings: 4-4-4-5 is currently OC'd to 1.1GHZ on my P5B and it screams. I would like to see some memory benchies of Corsair against this specific GSkill module type.

^^Check out the latest Maximum PC, they tested it against there tigher timings module. It was the showdown to see if its better to have tighter timings or higher mhz ram. It seems the tighter timings win as you can loosen them and go higher.

It wont give specific against your ram but it will show some numbers.

Thanks for the replies. I had'nt thought about G-skill. In a 2X512, it is quite a bit less expensive then the corsair 2x512. I was thinking about setting the multiplier to 7 for the E6400 and running up the FSB. The OCZ forum provides good info on this.

These will only help if you plan on using an E6300 or an E6400...The higher number processors will hit a FSB wall before you can use up a good set of DDR2 800 modules...I have been testing with the Dominator C4's rated at PC-8888 and really need an E6300 to see what these things can do....Right now I am stuck at DDR2 970 with my E6600 because I'm hitting a FSB wall at 485...

Hope this helps

If PC2-8500 you want, go for the Corsair Dominator, then the G.Skill DDR2 800 HZ with black heat-spreaders.

Now, I would say though, save a little more and go for a 2GB kit. I personally thought that 1GB would be more than enough but 2GB sure makes a big difference. It's totally worth it.

2Gb makes a "big differance" in what respect?

In every aspect. Games, photo editing, video editing.......overall. I noticed the difference between 512MB to 1GB and now I've seen the difference between 1GB to 2GB. I'd say the thing that has inpacted the most is games, they load quicker.

I just got Rise of Legends.....that game uses as much RAM as you have....er at least all of my 1g + some of my hard drive. Have you ever expirienced a game that uses more?
