Okay im not sure if this has been answered before but yeah.

What is better to have samsung or hynix ram.
I currently have a 9800xt(pro flash) with hynix ram. (8500le w/ hynix)
In addition a fried 5600 with samsung(looks like the memory was fried).

Through my experiance it looks like hynix is more preferable to have over samsung. Oh btw if anyone knows this, can you run samsung bios when u have hynix ram?

Well, I hear that the hynix ram is more overclockable but im not sure if either are more reliable. I think they have close to the same life time but the other is more overclockable (hynix) Hope my post helps.

I have always heard samsung OC's well.. but i have never tested it, just what i have read here. Honestly i dont think it matters a whole lot
