It's actually pretty good. Just ask Hipro5. He has his PC2700 running waaaay past PC3200.

I've had absolutely ZERO problems with Kingston Value RAM. I'm currently running 2 sticks of 256 megs PC3200 running CAS 2.0 at 11-2-2 in dual-channel mode. I was running it as low as 5-2-2, but raised Active Time due to better results with Nforce2.

I guess everyone has different experiences though, I won't go near Crucial memory. Had 2 sticks from Newegg crap out on me.

yeah, maxvla's stick had winbond bh-6s on it, i bought it:D to match my other value ram with bh-6s so i have a gig running at 200fsb dual [email protected], some of the 3200 stuff comes with the 4.3ns hynix ram though, great for high fsb, not good at all for low timings

Well my 512MB of 2700 is doing just fine, running at 2100 though cause my other 256mb's of crucial ram is 2100, but that will be fixed soon enough, no conflicts though mixing these sticks, im very happy.:)

Performance to value ratio is excellent in most cases with kingston, I Have heard so many negative things about corsair's; ocz's; and geil's "value" ram, I will stick with Kingston.

well, my 8rda took a vdd mod to get it stable past 185fsb, my goal was a stable 200 and i got that, havent really tweaked beyond that though, but i know the mem is good for around 215-220 from when i memtested async to determine if it was my nb or my mem holdin me back

I'm running my 256 Mb of Pc2100 at 155 Mhz completely stable with most agressive timings.

DANGER!!!!!!! DANGER Will Robinson!!!!!

I was lucky and got the 2.5 CAS memory, I just checked the site and they must have sold out on that and are now showing the CAS 3.0 memory (only looked at the PC3200, so I don't know about anything else). Make sure you look twice before buying.
