Single 512 stick? Depends...can't ever go wrong with Corsair though. I've seen their pc3200 sticks running in the 240-250fsb range, both at 256 and 512mb.

Personally, I've got a stick of samsung ctl (the old stuff that sucks voltage)....great stuff if you can find it, but Corsair can't really be beat right now.

TIA

Are you asking about a Crucial stick or just any brand? If only Crucial, I think their highest rated ram is PC2700, then I'd get that. Although people overclock their ram a lot, I'd rather have a higher guaranteed speed on memory then a lower one and try to overclock getting that speed. At least that way, you'd have more of a chance to OC higher than the lower rated speed. Of course if this is any brand, I'd rather get the XMS 3200 and get the guaranteed speed of 200MHz

What timings were those guys using? Didn't think XMS 3200 would go to DDR 500.

Look at the clock speed, look at the timings, and then look at the voltage.

I'd love to get that stick attached to a Nforce2 :D


GAAH! That's faster than pc1200 RDRAM!:eek:

Good stuff. I definately recommend Corsair. They even have a cas2 pc3500 out now. 217FSB, cas2! Good stuff if you can get the rest of your system to go that fast! I'd venture that you'll need a better board to do that, but I've been proven wrong before.

Then a pc2700 or pc3000 corsair XMS stick would be perfect. (rated for 166 and 185fsb, respectively. Available in Cas2.)

I have Samsung PC2700 and am going to upgrade to Corsair XMS PC3200 512MB CAS2. Have heard nothing but good things about it.
