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.
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?
