Which ram would i get the most value out of. Keep in mind that i have a presler D 940 and that i want to overclock to 4.1ghz

And i wanna have at least 4gb's when vista is released.

So i do plan on ordering 2 of these 2gb kits (4 dimms)

or

and theres this also but i dont really see the difference between this kit and the other corsair kit

2nd link saves you a few bucks but If you have enough go for the 3rd link. It's slightly higher speed will give you a little more room to get the most out of your CPU.

I don't like the OCZ because it it only PC4200 and the timings are 3-3-3-8. I don't know how it will overclock, but that is not the best ram for your money, IMO. I would probably go with the Corsair, for the simple fact that it is faster ram. It will also run slightly tighter timings with more voltage.

No, sorry, it doesn't work that way. Just hang around the forums a bit, answer some questions, and you will have rep points in no time.


Good luck with the ram and build, and let us know how it goes.

Anyways whats the difference between the 5400ul and 5400c4 and if im not mistaken the 5400c4pro is the exact same thing as 5400c4 but with led's.

Correct me if im wrong

The 5400UL and 8000UL use faster Micron chips than the C4 series. The UL series will run extremely fast, upwards of DDR2 1000, that is, each stick running at 500mhz. The C4 series is a little more mainstream, hence the lower price. It's still good ram, but not for extreme overclocking.

And yes, the C4 Pro just has led's, you are correct.

I am not even sure that they still make the 5400UL. Newegg doesn't have it, and it's out of stock at ZipZoomFly. However, here is the 8000UL, which uses the exact same chips as the 5400UL. You might want to check out Fry's electronics, if there is a location near you. That is where I bought my 8000UL, and it was $230 for the gig set.

Edit: the UL only comes in 512mb sticks

ok thats not good. Hope somewhere along the line they decided to use the ul chips in the new revisions of the c4 chips without telling anyone. A little wishful thinking
