G. Skill 2 x 1GB DDR 400 for $139, Anyone buy this?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Well, here is a great deal: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231047

Does anyone have these, if so do they overclock well? I was thinking about getting the DDR500 set for $20 more, but if these will OC good....

Just thought I would post this here to let everyone know/ have someone share their OCing experiences with this ram.

Seems like a good deal to me, RAM prices have been falling like crazy on the Egg.

It really depends on how high you want to OC.

Get the PC3200 if you want a moderate OC, but in order to get the max OC out of your system you're going ot need the PC4000 becasue 2x1GB kits in PC3200 don't like to go higher than 240MHz and it seems the G.Skill HZ's can get up to 280MHz @ 3-4-4-8 2T

I'm getting my G.SKill HZ tomorrow sos we'll see how my board likes it (can be hit or miss)

From the Newegg reviews, the most people are getting is 225, but we all know about the Newegg reviewers.

I will still probably get the HZ's once I sell my one stick.

I would say do that, either way you'll get a ton more Bandwith and potential speed than what you are currently using
