New RAM for DS3/S3

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I decided that I needed some faster/more RAM.

I have this on my mind: http://www.scorptec.com.au/product/19878

The problem is, I've heard people have compatibility problems. Anyone know if this one works fine?

Is this decent ram btw?

So many RAM gurus here...PLEASE. Does anyone know whether increasing Vram by a bit (and by how much) will make this memory compatible? This is at a really good price right now! SO I really need some help.

I'd get some G.Skill HZ's. People have been getting high overclocks with those.(i'm not sure if you could find those in Australia.) Those are the ones I have in mind. For Ram compatibility, I think it has to be able to boot up with 1.8v on the first boot. After that you can change the ram to anything else(I think) as long as you up the voltage.

Edit: http://www.scorptec.com.au/product/19681 these are the ones I was talking about. I do believe that the HZ can boot up at 1.8, but i'm not sure. Might wanna wait for someone with the HZ's to comment, but I'm pretty sure that they will boot.

My budget is $300...

im having big compatability issues with my DS3... i CAN tell you that it needs 1.8V for whatever reason, and it should be ddr2 800 memory if you want to overclock, preferably with a cas latency of four. at 1.8V ddr2 800 CL4 isn't feasible right now for whatever reasons (probably lack of cooling as its common with memory) but this looks like the best stuff...

though this looks good too

they're both 1.8V and geil looks better for the money but Corsair XMS is more reputable... its up to you, as far as compatibility goes im pretty sure it just needs to be 1.8V...
i think it has to do with the 965 chipset. gay.

Thanx, but I just ordered these (in sig) for $232 AUD. They run CL4.
