DDR500 speeds wouldnt be faster than DDR400 would they? Cause I thought AMD processers and mobos only support up to ddr400.....

The hell? I got the second rate TCC5 chips in my rev2s and I was still able to bump them up to DDR560 with a BIOS revision and a bit of patience...I've RMA'd those now as they're putting TCCD chips back in the rev2s and I hope to get even better results

G.Skill LAs were undisputably the best memory to buy as you would be hard pressed to find a set that wouldn't do DDR600...however they are now discontinued

Can't say which is better as every stick of memory reacts differently under dozens of variables...both are probably the better RAM companies out there, however I personally really like OCZs tech support and relatively good prices on good memory

overclocking ->
