He hates Corsair because everyone over at XS hates Corsair, but that is enough reason for me to hate Corsair as well.
I don't dislike corsair solely because of XS members...that basically just confirmed it once I started learning about it and read about things like this:
Regardless of XS, once you do reading on heavy OC's you will NEVER find Corsair among that list....the only time you see corsair is basically everytime theres a review on graphics cards or a CPU or something they always have "1gb of Corsair XMS" ram in there, sometimes 2, but it's never with insane OC's...
Anywho, at first I looked at that RAM and thought 2.5-3-3!? What crap! Then I noticed it said DDR500 and it made much more sense considering your goal here
I know mushkin just released some RAM to compete with the OCZ VX line that apparently did really well meaning like 2-2-2 timings up at 270MHz, however, the VX line is their VOLTAGE EXTREME and this mushkin RAM is there to compete with it.....that means it will take nothing less than like 3.2-3.3v at all times...and to hit those really high speeds you'd need 3.6-3.7 and a fan blowing on your RAM, no exceptions.
That OCZ RAM says DDR500 at 2.8v which is pretty dang low....you gotta figure you should be able to hit near 300 as long as they are indeed good quality sticks if you put upwards of 3.2v max through them and probably timings like 3-3-3-8 or so but that'd be some nice bandwidth.
Either way lately OCZ has been putting out some really good stuff....be it platrev2's, VX line, and I believe their gold line was doing really well.......all in all for that price I don't think you're going to get too much better, but hey that's just one nubioso's opinion
