i have some samsung 2700 256...im looking at corsair and i really can't afford it.. i want atleast 512 so i can try running the xp kernel out of memory...won't help in benchmarks but in actual noticeability it should. i wanna try it out and see what happens...
anyway point is.. can i get any added benefit out of these things...i know corsair sometimes uses samsung chips so i figure i might get lucky if i put some heatspreaders on there..furtherore.. if its not gonna help effectively i don't care but if they do help it.. who makes a good one..i got some for my wifes pc...just seeing what they were like.. i brought em back cause the had like an eighth of an inch of tape between the memory and the copper.is there anything better?
