Although..I think I just answered my own question. The 1066 looks great for the price, but would you go with a tighter timed 800, or the 1066.

I would get either of the gskils. I had the first ones but have since upgraded and they still run just fine in my older back up system. I have gskils in 3 computers here at home and have never had a problem with any of them.

Not on a proprietary HP motherboard! :swearing: LOL

It comes with tighter stock timings and will probably OC a little better than the red 1066 gskills.

i second this kit.

if any I would go to the 1066 stuff.... 3rd link that is

but i use the OCZ with the heat spreader that was mentioned farther down, I know it wont fit in with a stock HP case like that, but if you ever expand your case, I would recommend it, very nice kit.

I know it doesnt matter since the OP ordered his kit already, but here is a 2x2Gb WINTEC AMPX 1066 5-5-5-15 kit rated at 1.9v-2.1v for only $39.99 (no rebates or anything). I might try it on a build I am doing.

I have yet to see a 2x2Gb kit do 1200 unless they are sold as such. Look at the timings those kits are running just for 1150. I have not seen anyone get those much past 1180. I have the 2x2Gb G.Skill 1100 Pi and they OC to 1165 5-5-5-12 timings with 1.84v. So if you want a shot at high speed ram with low voltage and timings, they are your best chance.

Corsair or G. Skill would be the best choice in this case.

Already got the G.Skill Pi 8800s and so far I managed to overclock them to 1155 stable but anything 1170+ is completely unstable regardless of voltage.

Just looking around for something that will do 1200Mhz alongside with Q9650 at 4.3.
