New Ram, which should I get for my app.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Ok, I just recently upgraded, I have an Opteron 165, an ASUS A8R32 MVP Deluxe, I've read reviews of this board peaking up to 340mhz regardless I can't get my setup over a stable 250mhz - different cpu's vs. my 165 however, I beleive that my Corsair Value select is the culprit. So I'm looking for opinions as to what I should get for Ram. I have 2 gigs of DDR400 4x512 sticks. I'd like to keep the 2gigs, what's the best bang for my buck, and what's the best to really push my system to a stable overclock.

The G.Skill HZ 2GB kit is DDR500 at stock, and tends to OC well. AMDs do not like having 4 sticks of RAM, so 2 * 1GB is your best bet. The HZs are about $190 at NewEgg.

The New GSkill HZ DDR500. Great stuff. I think it's like $192 at the Egg.

EDIT: LOL same time Namrac, nice!

Is there a better set over those, just for informational purposes I suppose?

They're among the best, I'll check, but G.Skill makes great RAM.


Edit: OCZ Platinum DDR500s are really good too, tighter timings than the HZs, but they cost $80 more...

I've never heard anything bad about G.skill so how would this stuff rate? Anyone using it, seen reviews etc? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231057 I relize it's more coin then the other sticks, but is potential that these could go further then the others possible?
