Thinkin of switchin to C2D need good memory - Page 9

i herd AMD boards sometimes go screwy w/ 4 sticks, but not 3, and i herd the smaller the ram size the better the OC, so 2x512 would oc better than the same brand 2x1gb, this is not proven anywhere, this is what i've heard around the forums

It can do 2Gbs but its mainly the whole more than 4 "sides" of RAM so two sticks is the max not unless you like seeing REALLY slow performance

Just for kicks I wanted to see how high my ram could really go. I had seen it above 540 before but I wasnt really sure.

Well here are the results.

http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc?id=152603

I tried at 395 FSB but it wasnt stable enough. I knew it worked at 390 so I just tried 392 lol.

Now about the G.Skill ...i'll say it again doesn't it sound very plausible that G.Skill operates the same way as most companies like intel with the conroes just being lowered when it didint meet quality?

I mean the only thing on the model number thats different are the very last two letters on their 800 line. Seeing as though it seems most HZ's will hit above 650, and mine being the 2nd of the 4 most will probably hit over 540, while the first line from what friends tell me theirs hit over 500. Theres those teal ones i've never heard about but following the trend I'm gonna guess most will hit 600mhz. Thus being very similar to how the conroes are sold. The highest quality ones are sold as HZ's while depending on the quality they have the voltage lowered and are sold cheaper. Also it could be noted that HZ's sell out alot and so do alot of the others, even when there seems to be no where near as many reviews as say XMS2 and its always in stock. Possibly they try to make all HZ's therefore theres only so many of each one. Since they arent as big as Corsair or Crucial or Kingston they wont sell as many either.

Now since overclock.net is all about being open minded to things doesnt this sound plauseible?

There ya go , do it like that I guess, if you don't mind possibility RMA'ing. Hopefully you'll get the right stuff first try, but if you don't mind RMA and waiting, you got a good plan. Everything I've ever read says the firestix have D9, except like I said recently reading something to the contrary, probably bs though....I hope. And the price of them isn't bad. Or get the Gskill's like Sora said, or even Crucial Paul linked would be nice. Like said Crucial and Micron = same company. Sounds like any of these your probability of D9 is very high or certainty. When you get them run memtest real good, if they wall around 450...promos RMA, 500 and they say "gimme more"...you got the goods.

Lol i'd edit quick and just say your selling but dont act like your selling in here becuase they only let you sell with 25 reps or more in these forums.

alright i think ive got it figured out how the different ram ranks

$375 - Crucial Ballistix - D9
$350 - Crucial Ballistix - D9
$305 - G.Skill HZ - D9
$310 - OCZ
$290 - Crucial Ballistix
$275 - Patriot
$275 - Corsair
$240 - Buffalo Firestix
$250 - G.Skill
$245 - OCZ
$240 - G.Skill

any other ram to throw into this list ive compiled?

i should make a new thread with a finalized list

Edit: and which of these guarantee D9s?

Well honestly if ram hits above 500mhz it's most likely a D9.
