I'm still trying to find out from a forum member having this Firestix modules and actually having D9s because so far I can't find anything on them.
I know the DDR2 1000 have D9xxx and the DDR2 800 have D9GKX but from what I've seen in the review (DDR2 1000+
) they require 2.5v to achive that speed which means their D9s are good but not that good. I also don't like the high latencies for DDR2 1000+, as I'll never use CAS 5-5-5-18 because that's the bottom of the barrel.
I'd say the G.Skill again or the Team Xtreem DDR2 800 which you can buy at tankguys.com. And those are better binned D9s. which can handle DDR2 1000 with a 2.30v and cas 4.
