Looking to get 2gb dual channel of course

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
As the title says I think I wanna move to 2gb here. I love my GEIL ram however I think its holding back my gaming a bit. I would even like to get some 2gb of GEIL if I can. This is for my sig rig and as you can see its a DFI board so voltage isnt a problem here.

I would like to keep it maybe in the $250 range if at all possible as I know ram prices have just skyrocketed lately.

I've got 2GB of this and I've had no problems. I haven't run it all the way up to DDR500 yet, but I have it running 217Mhz 24/7 at 2.5-4-4-7. I've had it running at 233Mhz and 2.5-4-4-7. Still no problems. It seems like solid stuff. Uses UCCC ICs I'm pretty sure.

At DDR400 It'll run at 2-2-2-5. I found that out by accident lol.

That sounds perfect. G.Skill is known to work well with DFI boards.

I will give the G.SKillz some thought most definately. I will let you know tomorrow if I want them or not. What are the timings on these things at 500? I run at 2-2-2-0 right now at 241mhz.

Oh and I see your in WI, I am in MN so this would be a fast ship.

Yeh, it seems they work best with DFI. I have seen some threads with people saying they got close to 300 MHz (DDR600) with these sticks.

Well they are up on the Bay and seem to go fast when they are up there. Let me know

I believe 3,4,4,8 1T but the speed makes up for it! Wish i had a DFI board to put these to the test.

They're rated for 3-4-4-8 at DDR500 at 2.8v, but I'm sure some more voltage would get them running pretty tight. Might even want to get some active cooling if you go that route.

I wouldn't really recommend that. Those are Samsung ICs, and doesn't like volts above 3.0

Thats not a bad deal and G.skill IMO is better than the Geil series.
