Owned some OCN limited edition DDR2 800 a while back and they OCed as well as my G. Skill HZs

Nothing bad about those and insane prices.

Oh, they are Micron D9 chip alright, but they are a newer high density chips that don't push high Mhz very well. You can prbly push them to ~1150Mhz with 5-5-5-15, but you'd be better sticking with cas4 and trying to push them to 1000Mhz. Just try to keep them at 2.1v or below. The 2.0v rated Modules they are using just don't hold up to the 2.3v maximum standard per JEDEC. They will stop working properly with 2.2v after a few weeks. I had to RMA a few pair of the 1GB version last year.

thank for the fast reply. so they are able to push up to a stock pc2-8500 @ 2.1v and below?(mostly)
post #1006 of 1098
Yea, just try to keep the voltage as low as possible with these. My 2.0v version have been running stock 800 4-4-4-12 at 1.9v for about 6 months now in a HTPC system I put them in. I'm using the old school double-side 2.2v version in sig rig.

From my experience they suck. My first set crapped out about 3 months running them. I RMA'd them and my new ones are not stable at all, causing my pc to crash. And the RAM will not even run @ the voltage they say to run them at, I have to under volt them to even get them to work.

Try sticking them in the freezer for a couple hours.
