    need help deciding on 2x1gb DDR500

    So I was going to wait until I got my tax refund to upgrade my memory, but I'm not going to make it. I'm trying to decide between these modules:
    TeamGroup Cronus 3-3-3-8 (micron)
    Mushkin Extreme Performance 3-4-3-8 (samsung uccc)

    My current overclock is 9x278 (will also do 8x312).
    The TeamGroup memory ($265) costs a lot more than the Mushkin ($175 after rebate), but it also appears more likely to do 270+ without a divider.

    So what do y'all think - worth it to lay out the money for the micron? Or should I just save my hard earned $$$ and get the samsung uccc?

    The Micron chips are supposed to hit 300+ fairly easily at 1T, while UCCC typically maxes around 270. Go with the Team Xtreem if you can afford it.

    It depends on whether or not trcd=3 is worth $100 to you.

    $265 for the Xtreem. <--Prob. a really good price.
    300+ Mhz sounds good to me. The price tag is the only thing holding me back.

    Thanks for the replies!

    Eldonko - I know you had very good results with your mushkins, but would you call that typical? I thought the average results for memory based on samsung uccc are in the range of 260-270?

    I have the mushkin stuff and I'm extremely pleased, I got 270mhz on 3,4,3,7 with 3v. I don't know how typical that is, just my personal experience.

    *EDIT*Onepage,
    What happened to your results?
    Post them up again!! For those that didnt see, it was a nice pic of the Team Microns blasting out stable 300 mhz runs.

    Thats got to be the Team Group Xtreem Micron Modules!!!
    I would be lying to you guys if I said I wasnt ordering some of these sticks this week. I must say, after reading tons of reviews. The only 2 gig memory that can consistently reach 300 Mhz is the Team Group Xtreme DDR500

    I cant wait until I slap these sticks on my test rig. I might even write a little review for Overclockers.

    Probably not typical for UCCC to hit 280 no, 270 is more common. Mushkins were the best clocking of the 3 sets of UCCC I have owned though.

    Brinnswift.. 3v = dead UCCC bro. UCCC doesnt scale with voltage, 2.7v is plenty.

    Eldonko,
    Thanks for your info as well.
    I plan on testing/and/or trying the Mushkins as well within the next 2 weeks or so because of your results. I thank you. <--- I am what they call a tech hardware "junkie" and occasional reviewer.

    sure, i looked at those, too. the price difference after rebate is negligible and they're basically the same hardware (also samsung uccc). i've been impressed by mushkin's support on this forum, but a lot of people seem to swear by gskill.
    but the dilemma remains: mushkin/gskill (samsung uccc) or team group (micron)?

    The micron by far. You shouldn't have to think about it if you are wanting to spend that much.
