They look good but they dont specify any particular Micron chips.

Get these from Scan and save £100

http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=402849

They reportedly overclock up to 1000Mhz @ 4-4-4-12 @ 2.0v and further with relaxed timings so plenty of headroom, plus you can spend the saved cash on an E6600 + X1950XT or summat.

That'd be my advise anyway

Okay, I guess that the CellShocks are a bit overKILL with my budget. If i go with an E6600, I want to spend around £200 on the RAM. Bringing me under budget at £739.

Can I have some more suggestions on the RAM please?

Fair enough, I'd suggest if you want better than PC2-6400 then go with the cheaper CL5 CellShocks off overclockers for £235 ish. That way you get your PC2-8000 ram, plus you can probably increase the CL5's 2.1-2.2v to the CL4's 2.2-2.3v and get 4-4-4-12 timings anyway, plus you've a 5 year warranty on them.

If you don't like that then here is £200's worth of ram

Thanx Richie, they look good.
How far do you reckon I can push that conroe with that RAM then? (With the TT)
post #17 of 114
I would recommend http://www.memory-configurator.com/p...kit/index.html for ram. They are built with micron chips and are very good for overclocking. To work the website make sure you select united kingdom in the country drop down thing, they offer free delivery to the UK.


With them it will give you a VERY nice pc

E6600 + TT120 + P5B Deluxe + PC2-8000 RAM =

With a good stepping you can expect a 24/7 oc of 3.6Ghz @ 1.4/1.5v and if you're lucky benching at 4.0Ghz (450*9) with the right voltage and temps.

Realistically i'd expect 3.4Ghz at low volts with good temps and benching up to 3.8.

I envy you matey

Agreed, and I would have recommended a lot of other RAM sticks, but the OP said to limit to Scan and OcUK.

Schweeet!
post #20 of 114
Or +£20 on the Team RAM for PC2-8000 Micron chip based CellShock's

http://www.memory-configurator.com/p...kit/index.html

Choices choices...

EDIT: Btw, do i see you picking a 600w Seasonic for this system?! Overkill alert?! A quality 500w is more than enough if you're not thinking about an SLI/CF system later.
