I've heard that BH5 ram is the best DDR ram around. Could somebody please tell me where i can get this ram, and if it will work well with a Lanparty UT SLI-DR mobo? thanks<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin">

Newegg has some, and it works well pretty much only in DFI boards, 'cause it takes a massive amount of voltage. (3.5 vDIMM or so). I'll get a link to my set.<br><br><br>
Edit: Out of stock right now, but here it is. $130.<br><a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820231013" target="_blank">http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231013</a>

That G.skill isnt real BH-5 its UTT. But i had the same pair. UTT BH-5 can do almost as good as regular, but with UTT its hit and miss (mostly hit) thats why its "untested". I ran my BH-5 @ 1.5-2-2-0 @ 260 Mhz @ 3.6v (yes BH-5 needs voltage). Real BH-5 can do a lil better. Ive seen 1.5-2-2-0 @ 280-290 though its rare. If you want high mhz get TCCD. It req. less voltage and runs like 2.5-4-4-7 @ 300+ mhz

OCZ has very good BH-5 / TCCD ram.

BH-5 ain't made anymore, for years. So I doubt you'll find any new sticks.

Yes GEIL ONE is made pretty much only for the DFI mobo's as the voltage required is insane for any other mobo unless you do a volt mod. I run GEIL as you can see and this stuff will do 250mhz at 2-2-2-0 and your volts on that will probably be in the 3.5 to 3.7 range.<br />

There's still some real good UTT BH5 out there. TeamGroup picked up the last couple of batches, I think. Check these out.<br />

The first set is guaranteed 250MHz 2-2-2-5, while the 2nd is not. Both are basically the same as the old OCZ Gold VX, Mushkin Redline, and GeIL ONE "W" RAM.

I dont know if BH5 would actually be the best RAM around. I think TCCD would be better as it requires less voltage and can go much higher it seems.<br><br>

Good BH-5 can reach speeds close to what TCCD can reach, and with much tighter timings.
