Are these BH-6/5 replacement chips that much worse as everyone say they are? What kinda overclocking speeds can you expect from them at 2.8-3.2v?

once apon a time long ago i had some corsair v.1.2's with ch-5 chips. Horrible memory IMO. They were on an asus p4p800 deluxe and didn't respond to voltage at all. Kind of like my dog when she runs away and i yell "NO! stop! SUUUuuuuuuuuggggggggg......!"

CH-5 is good. Once you get them over 3.2v then they are great.

I run mine at 3.25v

Top end, both my sets of CH-5 can do 475mhz rock solid 2-3-2-5 no PAT.

Does 425mhz with PAT on fully and 2-2-2-5. see sig - pulls 20016 3dmark01

^wow that's pretty good. I just so happen to not have had such good luck when i had mine. The consensus however is that ch5 is not that overclocking friendly. However i think there is a refined ch5 that's starting to just come out that does better.
