It never works man. Hahaha. If she is like my wife she will get pissed off for a few minutes, then she comes to the realization that at this point there is not a damn thing she can do about it. The sucking up and begging approach works too, but it hurts the pride a little. I personally rather have the butt chewing about being fiscally irresponsible.

Good luck with your Memory.

I just bought the same RAM, the OCZ plats. I put them in and....nothing.
So I cleared my CMOS and tried again and it worked.
SPD timings on the OCZ is 2.5-3-2-5 2T. Set it to 2-3-2-5 1T and I've been having a great time in BF2 ever since. The quality of the plats is amazing too...built like a tank! One of the few sets of RAM that I've owned with copper heat spreaders.

Sending in my rebate today.

In case anyone cares, the ICs in the OCZ plats are Infineon or Aeneon.

$212 shipped after $40 rebate. 2-3-2-5 1T is as good as it gets for 2 x 1GB, and currently that's a great price.
Newegg has the OCZ plats right now for $199.23 after $40 rebate shipped free. Jump on that deal!

Naw it's cool.

I'm a gskill's kinda guy anyways.
I'm rooting for the little guy.
Their 2-3-2-5 2x1gig sticks have been $194 without any rebates for awhile now.

I hear ya. I'm a G.Skill guy myself. I have 1GB (2 X 512MB) of the LEs (Samsung TCCD 440). That RAM is awesome!
When I upgraded to 2GB, I originally bought the G.Skill HSs, but unfortunately as I found out, the Samsung UCCC ICs on the HSs don't like Asus A8N-E and A8N SLi mobos.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231020

So I went looking for some 2-3-2-5 memory.
The OCZ plats are:
$199.23 after $40 rebate shipped free.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227210

The G.Skill ZXs are:
$214.82 shipped.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231032

So my LEs are sitting back in their box but they are my favorite sticks by far. They overclock like cray-zay!

I love the OCZ, fantastic quality. I would have bought G.Skill if it could match the OCZs current bargain basement price.

No more HD access lag in BF2. Smooth as ice.
