i just bought the 2Gb 1066 kit for 40 bucks on the egg. Any feedback from people that have it would be cool, oh and will this run fine with my 4 gigs of OCZ Reapers that i have? reapers are 2.2v and dominators are 2.1v.
All DDR2 is PC6400. It is the only supported standard. If you want RAM to go faster than that you have to OC it. When someone sells DDR2 1066, 1100, 1200 etc. it is only guaranteed to run that speed at the specified voltage. So you can buy 1066 and take your chances getting it up to 1200. Or you can just buy 1200 and be done with it. Personally I think all 1066 sets will get you close to 1200 and are more fun because you get to tweak them like you would your CPU. I don't want plug and play OC.
The corsair are rated 5,5,5,15 at just 2.1v and the reapers require slightly more. The lower the voltage RAM requires to run the rated settings the better they are. The Ideal DDR2 would do 1200mhz 6,6,6,18 at 1.8v. The extra .1v won't bother the dominators one bit.
