Newbie here,need advice. I'm starting a new build & have
2.4C MO on hand, thinking of getting Abit Ai7 board, will be familyroom pc running stock mostly but using OC to help when capturing & encoding video. From what I've read, I'll want Kingston or Mushkin?pc3200 or pc3500 non-a bh-5 correct?
And if so, I should probably get it @ ZZF. Thanks guys

How would I find out from ZZF? E-mail & ask if they are selling Mushkin with BH-5? There isn't a way to tell on their webpage is there? Thanks

Mushkin is a good choise, i've seen a lot of good results. Or you could wait a bit for bh-4 to come out, higher clocks /w tighter timings :)

Oh, so the lower number is faster,when will they come out with that? I had read or heard somewhere that memory was in a process of spiraling down so I had thought maybe I should wait alittle bit? I remember seeing pc133 do that dramatically a yr.or 2 ago. I've never really understood the way memory works or the intricate methodology of overclocking. I have learned one thing though recently, you guys on these forums sure know this sh#t well! Thanks all! Bill
