Ddr2 533

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Looking to buy a matched pair of 512MB DDR2 533 to run dual channel.
Any suggestions? I'm sorry to ask such a vague question, but RAM really isn't my thing. I'm not looking for anything OC able, because my current pair won't keep up. Thanks, and sorry again.

Practically, all DDR2 modules can overclock sky-high, as far as I know that MoBo which has an nForce 4 SLI-IE chipset may be the cause of not OCing good at all.

Even the value stuff can overclock in the 250's and max of 260fsb.

Well, he said he didn't want to OC, so that's not a concern, and 533 native speed is 266.5, no OC needed there.



Now, Kahuna.......just to be clear? You are going to run the 2 sticks you have now, and add these 2 new sticks right? I am assuming as you said those sticks wouldn't keep up with the new ones.

If so, you would want to go with the same brand and speed and type your current sticks are.

Sorry for the 5 day later reply, I completely forgot about the thread... So busy with revision etc. Nasgul, it is nForce 4 SLi, and I shall be considering OCing, but I didn't know if two different pairs would OC well together. Thumper, I'll end up with 4 DIMMS, consisting of 2 matched pairs, running Dual Channel. I allready have one matched pair, it's the other pair I'm after =)
And Bigval, I'll look into your offer, if it still stands.
Thanks everyone for the support, you've helped
