it may or it may not. value ram is not binned... that's why it's called value RAM... the cost says low w/o the extra tests and binning. sometimes you'll get lucy and get some that will go to 220-230... but most of the time 210-215 is about max.

just run memtest to test for stability.

Thing is that my mem wont go higher than 209. If I do get really good ram how much further will I be able to take the fsb to before the CPU and MOBO give up?

1 gig will always overclock better than 2 if you are using 2/4 sticks. Pushing the mem controller to run 4 sticks will slow it down. Some of the new 1gig sticks will oc almost as good as 2-512 sticks.

I would take 2 of those gig sticks out Feirax, and sell them. You are losing performance, and 4 gigs is beyond overkill.
As far as the corsair value. I had a 512 stick that did 220 2.5-3-3-7 1T.

Corsair pretty much uses anything they get out of their parts bin for value select. I know I've heard of people getting valueselect chips with Infineon or Samsung ICs and getting some great clock speeds. Seems whatever I ended up with also does ok.

I'm not losing any performance.
I've benched this box with all the different configurations, and there's no difference. It could be because my cpu is the E6 revision.

4GB + 4xRAID-0 is nice for video editing.

I have mine at 225MHz 2.5-3-3-6-7-12 1T 2.6V, it is good RAM for the price IMO, but if you can afford better, get somthing like Mushkin Redline or something.
