What's the difference between these two cheap G.Skills?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Does anybody know the difference between these two G.Skill sticks?

NQ series (I have one already)

NR series

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231097

Is it different chips, densities, or something like that? I want another stick and I'm not sure if I should just get another one of what I have, of go 2 bucks more and get the other (potentially better) one.

The only reason I would get a non-NQ stick is if it is enough better than the NQ stick that it would be worth getting a matching one to replace the NQ down the road.

My current NQ hasn't seen any high speeds yet, but I'm pretty happy with it. It's running 3-3-3-8 1T @ DDR2-574 on 1.9v and is Prime95 stable.

I would probably get the same thing that you already have, although i would think the other ones would also work.

They are probably the same deal as the G.skill PK, HK, and HZ.

PK will run stock, but not much more
HK has some headroom
HZ is overclocker material

I see you have some of those PKs. What do you have them running at, and how have they been?

EDIT: I noticed that the 512 NQs are cheaper than the equivalent NRs, but the 1 GB NQ is $5 more expensive than the 1 GB NR stick?

They probably both suck for any kind of beyond 800 overclocking anyway. I'll probably just go ahead and save $2; and have a better chance at a stable dual channel setup.
