The best overclockable memory

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone.
Im just wanting to know what you guys think the best brand of RAM for overclocking is. Post from experience - how long it ran for, cooling if any, brand, type stock speeds/timings, overclocked speeds/timings, voltages etc. You can also post guesses if you want however experience would be better.

Im just basically making this thread for everyone who wants to know the best type of RAM for overclocking including myself.

Thanks,
abZ

Haha, nahhh. A 3.0ghz quad core isn't enough for us, why would 625mhz RAM be enough??

yeah from what i have read on the reviews, this is great stuff for overclocking. they have gotten up over 1000mhz on 800 normal which is pretttty good - cheap too. i might get myself some.

The dominators further up seem good at stock but the reviews say they died pretty quickly on the default voltage.

any experiences good/bad anyone?

It's weird, in a lot of peoples opinions on this site, the looser timing HZ's overclock better than the tighter timinged HK's
