read the reviews of those rams
384 of mostly 5egg reviews
and it has 2-3-2-5 timings on a 2gig kit

the pc4200 and 4400 kits have timings like 3-4-4-8 ,right around there
maybe 2.5-3-3-7 at best

PC3200 at 2-3-2-5. I wonder how well they'd overclock. If they'd hit 260 Mhz around 2.5-3-4-8 I may grab a pair...

well im sure that stuff screams...but i dont think he can pump more than 3-3.3 volts into it... so hes restricted by voltage settings leaving him with the gskill extremes or the ocz platinums...

so you guys won't go with the 4400 ocz? the reason i have been interested in it is because i read a couple reviews were they claimed it to be the fastes memory they had tested, also the life time guarantee is good up to 3.0v

it's also ddr533
