deathstar13, the KHX4000 I've seen was indeed holding Sammies chips, but I'll the D43 just in case.
about the Vitesta Pc4k my friend took off the heatspreader and we saw a D43 I should have a pic somewhere, I can look for it if you want :)
I'll add might be D5. Thanks.

I was talking about the xms3000c2. Are you talking about the xms3200c2? I didn't see the 3000 on your list.


Edit:
Quoting Ram Guy from Corsairs forum:
When we first released this module they were indeed Samsung -6 Rev C. However with later revisions we used Winbond -6 Rev B IC's.

So xms3000c2v1.1 is Samsung -6 Rev C (aka TCB3, correct me if I'm wrong)
and later versions are BH-6

This needs to be at the top for a good while so everyone can see it.

in regards to the kingston:

D328DW-45
D328DW-50
D328DW-60

so what you are saying is that this doesn't need to be on hyperx, say there value ram is labeled that, does that mean it will still be the corresponding relabelled chips?

i think i may have just found a hoard of bh-5 if that is the case..... :drool:
