You're not risking anything as they have D9GMH too

OCZ, Corsair, G.Skill don't make any of the chips they use, they only package them. If there is one brand you shouldn't trust right now, it's Corsair and that is because they've moved from D9GMH to Promos/Elpida on almost every stick they have that is rated under PC8000

OCZ has done similar

Thread Starter 
I also that all companies have their low end products and their high end products...since my rig contains a ASUS P5WB DH deluxe wifi, ATI Radeon X1950XTX, Intel E6600, OCZ GamEXtreme 700w. I am spending well over $1500 for this pc, so I need some ram that are sure to perform above average. Eventhough the Dominators are $50 more, I think I will buy them because I know they will work. Thanks to both of you, Boredom and Frozen-Liquid, for your advice.

boredom;

I guess he is referring to risk as an......how good is Buffalo in terms of cust serv and reliability? Same thing I was wondering with G.Skill, I knew their HZ was great but never heard of them till I researched it.

Now, as for CAS5, well, I see that the link from egg it shoots straight to the page for firestix and I don't see CAS 4 there at all, so now I have my doubts: http://www.buffalotech.com/products/firestix.php



jetboyf16;

The Corsair Dominator DDR2 800 CAS 4 are probably the best kit out of all the choices that you've selected, those also have Micron D9 ICs. Not bad for the price and those heat-spreader will become handy when overclocking. So I would definitely say get those.

All D9GMH chips perform above average, they almost all hit 1000 at 4-4-4, spending extra on chips that will perform similar is a waste of money

@Nasgul, they changed their page, earlier today I went to that same link and it had the FSX800D2C-K2G at 4-4-4 instead of the 5-5-5 they currently show

According to that Team group guy over at XS, heatspreader do more bad than good

I'd say get the Buffalo. They WILL work in your rig. And by some freak chance if they don't, newegg is VERY easy to do RMA's with.

Yes, yes, I saw that and I remember it, but where exactly? got the link?

And I think I'm going to contact Buffalo and do some research on them.

hmmm, double standard? j/k I feel the same way, but often fall into the category of those who listen to reliable sources, and in numbers such as here. Buffalo Stix may have a warranty, check it out, and yes they are all the same chips... Good luck...

But, we all include HS when we sell our kits.

Thanks for your q.

Yep, that's the thread I was looking at the other day...

Now, you see why some kits cost more than others?:

That CAS3 DDR2 800 kit is nowhere to be seen and Tankguys don't have 'em yet. I wonder why? Maybe because it'll be a $400 kit?



**EDIT**

Well, went to Tankguys to check out if they were there and here they are: http://www.tankguys.biz/ddr2-3438800...b5830622ff2d89
