Don't know about that OCZ Gold you asked about, usually the gold series require high voltages, but perhaps that one doesn't. How fast are you wanting to run it? For $20 less, you can go with this: http://www.pccasegear.com.au/prod2893.htm, and I KNOW it'll do DDR500, at better timings.

It says value series, but if you look it up on any other web site it's listed as their Extreme Series. It's what I'm currently running at 3-3-3-7 1T in my sig. Definitely worth the money, I am highly impressed. Especially if you're looking for DDR500, look to the left at the speed I have it at. It rocks.

But those XTC heat spreaders sure do look sweet on the OCZ's, huh?

i need it to go pretty darn quick, i run the htt at 305 24|7 and would be good to have ram that can go quicker than the poor ram im running now, 4x512 sticks is killing my rig performance wize, i cant run the ram past 200 mhz or it errors.

As I'm sure you know, 1GB sticks aren't going to go that fast. Highest I seen was that OCZ Platinum PC4000 2x1GB I was discussing with someone else last night. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227225

It made it to 275, but who knows when you'l be able to get it, I looked for a month before giving up and buying the G.Skill, and I'm not sorry I did. I don't know if Newegg.com ships to Australia either, and I don't know anyone else who even has it listed. I'd figure if I have problems here in the USA finding it, you will also, but who knows. They do sell the 1GB modules seperately: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227224. The con of that being that they're not matched, and like before you may not be able to get them down under.

As far as I know there's no one using TCCD on 1GB modules, so you're probably going to have to change your speed expectations. Another frown, but at least it'll be better than what you're able to run now with the 4x512 setup.
