Are you getting the ram off of someone? Retail Corsair XMS2 DDR2-800 modules are not even D9's usually while G.skill HZ's are cheaper and assured
D9's....i hate how everything thinks Corsair is the best price/performance ram in the world.

Granted, I have no personal experience with G.Skill, but sometimes it's not all about price/performance. Even with lifetime warranties, having a RAM module die on you is still an inconvenience, unless you keep spares on hand. Sometimes it's about quality of component, and Corsair is not known for DOA modules or early failures. I am not saying that G.Skill is, just pointing this out. They are also some of the most compatible modules on the market.

This is an Intel system and the memory controller is not on-die. 4x512 won't have an adverse affect like it would on an AMD system.

The G.Skill will clock better than the Corsair though.

You learn something new everyday

I have been also looking at the GeIL 2GB (2x1GB) PC6400C4

How would this do?

Dunno... check this http://ramlist.infinityx.nl/

More specifically this http://ramlist.infinityx.nl/ddr2/

Anything that says micron will overclock pretty well, as a rule of thumb.

Just wondering if they are better than the G skill - I was told the G skills have been frying
