Where did you find that out?


The Value and the XMS are completely different lines. Just like OCZ also has a value line and a high end line. In the budget build I just did for my sister, I got her a stick of 512 DDR2553 Value, but it took 2 days longer to get so I used my stick of XMS to get the computer built and Windows loaded over the weekend. I was able to get better settings and a higher OC on the CPU with my stick installed than with the value one. Of course, that CPU wasn't fast enough to really push either stick to the limits, but there was a performance difference, and not just from the speed difference, as both sticks were well underclocked for 1:1.


If you have some info on them just repackaging value RAM in the XMS line, I'd like to see it, that would be dishonest IMHO and I don't do business with dishonest people.

Oh, and it's a heatspreader, not a sticker

Here are the best (in order) IMO:

G.Skill
OCZ
Crucial
Patriot
Corsair
I'd take Corsair 5400UL or 8000UL over your trashy Patriot ram anyday....Btw, G.Skill, OCZ and Crucial make terrible DDR2 memory, hell Crucial for starters sucks.
