Gskill HZ PC4000 2GB

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Im going to buy some new RAM to replace my current ones (so that i get better performance and can overclock better) and im thinking of these ones : http://www.pcdiga.com/pcdiga/Produto...a=&Artigo=1954

What do you think? good choice? bad choice? (its for the pc in the sig)
btw will my mobo support 2gb dual chanle pc4000 ?

If you enter your system specs in your User CP (links provided in my sig), you can free up your signature space for other fun things.

Your mobo shouldn't have any issues with running that RAM. Just be aware that the fastest you can likely set it to is PC3200 in the BIOS; the "extra" speed will leave you lots of room to overclock. That RAM looks decent for 1 GB sticks of PC4000. If the price is right, go for it.

thx. will i notice a major change?
why is it that most ppl still buy 2x512 or 2x256 for overclock? just cause its cheaper (well ive seen some very expensive 2x256)?
and finally (im such a pest) how much do u think my current ram is worth? (*** --> http://computerprice.be/computerpric...pid=229&mid=36 1ram=96€ ??? this is a hell of a store)

I'm also planing on buying that same G.Skill RAM. I've seen some people get it to 290GHz at 2.6V because it uses Samsung UCCC, which dosn't require a lot of voltage.

Since you're running a 533 MHz FSB CPU, I'm not sure you'll get the most out of DDR500. You'll have to get nearly a 90% OC to even reach the stock speed of that RAM, unless you run a divider in favor of the RAM. Depending on the specs of your current RAM, some faster RAM may well help, though.

Pack 2x 512Mb DDR2 OCZ PC2-4200 -- 109.00€

Will ddr2 work on my mobo?

Your mobo uses DDR. DDR2 is not compatible.

Im looking into buying that exact same set also. It looks like a lot of people have good luck with it, despite some bios settings that need adjusting when you install it. It looks like the best pc4000 stuff out there right now. I was comparing it to the mushkin pc4000 2gb kit in another thread. a lot of people reccommended this tho, so im gonna go with the G.Skill. Ive seen people get 300mhz out of it, but its more rare. 275-280 is much more common.
