G.Skill is better
you get higher Mhz even if it has looser timings, its still better overall
I think you should get the G.Skill PC2-8000(1000MHz) PI RAM for only $5 more or the 1066MHz version of that RAM for only $10 more.

Make sure you get a better CPU HSF for overclocking.
@Dark Volker those are too big since i got a z600 cooler

@Cryptedvick i will bid on the g.skill then
See less See more
I would bet the Mushkin will go higher. If those GSkill could hit 1066, they would be binned in 1066 sticks. My Mushkin are stable to 1110 MHz.
i might get the gskills dude, ive heard they are cheap and very reliable.
Yea I'd think the mushkin would be able to go higher.
I would get the mushkin. CL4 @800 is better than [email protected] CL5. Plus you can OC so I mean not really a question anymore. And neither make the DRAM so not sure what this whole this is better than that talk is about between these two? What G.Skill makes a great PCB? OK what ever?
G-skill PI's -- for $5 more, no contest.
