    Poll: Whats the best 2-2-2 PC3200 RAM?

    I'd be cool if there would be a poll for this. Kingston, Corsair, OCZ, Crucial, GEIL, Mushkin, PQI and so on all offer this new stuff which easily makes us forget the days of BH-5. I'd like too see how foum users here rate these sticks from their own opinions! I know, there will be more companies offering this kind of memory in the future, and DDR is at the end of its time, but nevertheless... i want a poll! Pleeeease...

    The ones i know:

    GEIL Ultra-X 3200
    OCZ PC3200 Platinum Rev. 2
    PQI Turbo Series
    Kingston KHX3200ULK
    Corsair XMS 3200XL
    Mushkin Level II V.2
    Crucial BallistiX 3200
    G.Skill TCCD 3200

    So, if the mods here wont turn this into a real poll: Which one (if you have 2-2-2-5 3200 RAM) do you have and are you satisfied with its performance?

    Depends on if you want it to run 2-2-2-5/6 past PC3200 speed. In that case the Mushkin wins hands down. None of TCCD stuff can do those timings to anywhere near the speed of BH-5....yet.

    I just grabbed some of the Geil, I'll let you guys know how it does soon.

    Here's someone else's Geil Ultra-X on A64, probably 2t

    Yeah, i have heard that the GEIL would be awesome wen it comes to overclocking abilities. I'll keep you informed about the BallistiX too.

    i have geil and its cheap stuff that performs well much like pqi. the only thing i dont like about geil is they are voltage hogs i had to run it at 2.7v just for 200fsb at 2-2-3-11 and it is pc3200 2-3-3-6 but they warranty up to 3 volts and encorage overclocking. the other company i seen do this was OCZ.

    The Ultra-X isn't cheap @ $275, but it's not the most expensive either. Some of the new OCZ TCCD is over $350 for a gig.

    ohhhh pffft all this stuff uses TCCD, so YOCMV... Just like BH-5. And honestly, this stuff just hasn't been out long enough to determine which brand seems to clock the highest.

    OCZ claims to speed bin or whatever for their faster/higher priced TCCD, and we know pretty confidently that the Brain Power pcb'd is better. OCZ is talking about some voltage loving TCCD now too that they will release. Wonder how much it will cost

    This GSkill stuff looks good too, PC4400 2.5-3-3-7 (Also rated for 2-2-2-5 PC3200) from kakaroto @ XR

    If OCZ's history stays the same..it will cost more than it's worth..

    cant the new OCZ pc3200 platinum rev 2's clock REALLY high? I know someone with it who can hit around 300 fsb with one stick, and around 280 with two.

    what timings? I'm sure mine would do that also if I would lower my multiplier. My CPU is just maxed out in frequency.

    I'm just about to trade in my Buffalo CH-5 for some of that G.SKILL Ram... 4400/3200, 2,2,2,5/2.5,3,3,7 It's well priced and has a liftime warranty!

    My Vote MUSHKIN

    http://www.dreamstation.cc/reviews/c..._ddr_222_l2_v2


    Our test started at 200MHz (400MHz), timing was 2-2-2-5 and the memory voltage was 2.75. The chart below will let you know what the results were for the following tests, if we made any adjustments and, if so, what they were.

    200MHz 800MHz bus, timing 2-2-2-5, voltage 2.75 Passed
    205MHz 820MHz bus, timing 2-2-2-5, voltage 2.75 Passed
    210MHz 840MHz bus, timing 2-2-2-5, voltage 2.75 Passed
    215MHz 860MHz bus, timing 2-2-2-5, voltage 2.75 Passed
    220MHz 880MHz bus, timing 2-2-2-5, voltage 2.75 Passed
    225MHz 900MHz bus, timing 2-2-2-5, voltage 2.75 Passed
    230MHz 920MHz bus, timing 2-2-2-5, voltage 2.75 Passed
    235MHz 940MHz bus, timing 2-2-2-5, voltage 2.75 Passed
    240MHz 960MHz bus, timing 2-2-2-5, voltage 2.75 Passed
    245MHz 980MHz bus, timing 2-2-2-5, voltage 2.75 Passed
    250MHz 1000MHz bus, timing 2-2-2-5, voltage 2.75 Passed
    255MHz 1020MHz bus, timing 2-2-2-5, voltage 2.75 Passed
    260MHz 1040MHz bus, timing 2-2-2-5, voltage 2.75 Passed
    265MHz 1060MHz bus, timing 2-2-2-5, voltage 2.75 Passed
    270MHz 1080MHz bus, timing 2-2-2-5, voltage 2.75 Passed

    Kav,

    Lets see some test results & CPU-Z screen shots, not just numbers. Anyone can post that.

    ... if they are serious, that set of sticks would be worth a nice amount of money.
