Are the G.SKILL 4GB(2 x 2GB) (PC2 8500) Any good?

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 
Hi guys I am looking at the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231166
From what knowledge I have they seem to be good and g.skill seems to be a reputable brand. I am only worried because I can't find any reviews. I would prefer PC2 8500 because I hate overclocking RAM and I don't mind shelling out the extra cash.

Does anyone know if these are any good and do they use the micro chips?

Thanks for the help (BTW I will give rep to anyone that helps answer this)

Yes they are fine but http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231145 is a much better deal. 66Mhz isn't noticable.

Will one of those overclock better than the other?

I can vouch for the DDR2-1000 kit. Very good. Just set the vdimm to 2.1v and you can hit the marketed speed. Lots of people don't know that and complain about it.

~Gooda~

The actual ram won't OC better, but DDR2 1000 is plenty overkill. All DDR2 ram above 800mhz is factory overclocked anyway.

don't forget to set your tRFC to 52, if your m/b allows it too.

I hope they can go to 1333Mhz on a Gigabyte X48 DQ6. It's what I am planning on getting.

No chance. At all. Who has 1333Mhz DDR2 ram?
