Which RAM does everyone think is better? I have an ABIT VP6.

MICRON 256MB DIMM SDRAM PC133 CL2 (7.5 ns)

or

INFINEON 256MB PC133 7NS CAS2 SDRAM

Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated. :)

Uh . . . Infineon is produced by Micron. Its basically the same RAM. Go w/ the 7ns stuff though. You'll get a higher overclock out of it.

I thought Infenion was a rebranded Siemens chip (at least that is was a sales guy once told me).

Infineon is not Crucial. They make their own chips. They're a European company.

Seriously not. Micron is not affiliated with infineon in ANY way.

If you want to overclock, go with micron. Infineon are good quality, but very bad overclockers. That's a fact.

I'd have to agree with the statement that Infineon isn't good OCing RAM. I had 2 sticks of Crucial 512Mb RAm with Infineon chips on them that wouldn't go past 305Mhz, no matter how conservative I ran them. My other Crucial (256Mb sticks) with Micron chips will do 333+ Mhz at CAS2.5, 2.7v.
