G.Skillz vs OCZ Question - Page 2

post #11 of 14
OCZ has more reputation for creating extremely overclockable ram. IMO, their quality has gone down the toile. That gskill will most likely hit over 300fsb, and i can tell you from experience that the ocz will top out 280 or so.

They have created a couple good batches of the platinum, but the rev2 1.1 chips have tcc5 instead of TCCD.

Well, theyre both good compaines, I have g skill and im at 10x280 stable, timings at 3-4-4-8 2.7v, but thats whatcha get with a 2gb kit, but im happy, I could probably loosen the timings a bit if I wanted, but I dont really care cause I dont really do benchies...Id say if youre going to overclock, get the g skill hz's, if youre not get a pc3200 g skill kit timings are 2-3-2-5, or get some OCZ.

You won't be dissapointed with your ram, by the way its G.SKILL not G.Skillz, just for future reference so you aren't uninformed about the brand.

The reason the timings are lower on the 'better' ram (G.SKILL) is because the speed is DDR500, meaning that those are the timings once the memory gets up to that speed.
